Re: How long did YOU leak?

I always leak on the opposite side when nursing, so I just wear one pad and switch it back and forht that way i remember which boob im on too, when i go out I wear both pads though just incase. Morgan just turned 1, I leaked 2+ years each time, I wish I could ditch the pads and bras though I hate em' but my baby is worth it

I needed to wear nursing pads for the entire 13 months I nursed. I leaked real bad in the beginning and it did get better, but I always needed a pad.

Re: How long did YOU leak?

I've been nursing for almost 4 months now, and I occasionally still have leaks. I have gotten to the point that I can use hemp fleece pads instead of disposables, though, so I'd say the leakage is not as bad, but it is still there.

Re: How long did YOU leak?

With DD #1 I had to wear disposable nursing pads until I weaned, and change them at every feeding at that! I tried cloth (even when I wasn't so crunchy, lol) but I soaked through them my undershirt, bra, and shirt everytime I nursed. With this DD I am still leaking so much that I wear a cloth and a disposable! Ugh!

I was playing the smaller cloth pad on top of a disposable pad also.. until I found those pads I talked about earlier.. I just HAVE to have a layer of PUL or something else waterproof or I'll drown myself!

Hannah is nearly 10 months old, and I still leak when it's time to feed if I'm not right on top of it.

That's what i do too! I have lillypadz and i would love them if they didn't make my boobies look funny shaped. I don't think they are made for bigger breasts ( i'm a 34dd ) so they dont really fit on my nipples lleyes2: And sometimes when she hasn't eaten for a while there will be a puddle around my nipple in the lilypad so when i take them off if just like rushs out!

Re: How long did YOU leak?

I leaked enough to have to wear pads for at least a year. I had to sleep in a bra for over a year and had to wear disposable nursing pads, the cloth ones never absorbed enough. Now, DD is 19 monthes and it os wonderful to not have to wear the pads. I never tried the lilly pads, i felt i leaked too much for them. I used to have letdown and would literally spray through my shirt!
