I produced a lot of milk at the start of breastfeeding and seemed to be constantly leaking and so was going through nearly a box of disposable pads a day. I decided to buy these washable pads as although £5 for 3 pairs calculated that it would save me money, even though I had to buy 2 packs. I find that these pads are too small and thick, they absorb a small amount of leakage but when your letdown happens they do not take long to get soaked and then leak. They also show through your top unless you are wearing layers as they are so bulky. They are lace backed to stop them slipping but in my experience they do not stay put for long and so you then leak all over your clothes. Now that my milk supply has settled down somewhat I find that they are fine most of the day as long as I check they are in place when I start feeding otherwise the breast I am not feeding from will leak everywhere.
Think i'll stick to the cheap disposable type(if theres a next time)

The breastpads made the work at home mum cottage industry are much better quality than these. To find some, look on cloth nappy sites as they usually carry them. You can also find new ones on Ebay as many of the self employed have shops there.
