    Default Nursing Pads - desperate need of help here...

    Anyone know where I can get a good reusable pair of nursing pads in London? I am tired of my milk leaking out and the fluff from the pads sticking to my boobs and it would be much better to reuse and recycle then keep throwing them out anyways! If anyone knows.. please let me know!!

    I tried reusable ones from la leche and they were awful. I had to go back to disposable ones.

    Same here. I tried a few different brands of reusables and nothing worked. I found the Johnson and Johnson disposables were pretty good and didnt “fluff“ on me

    Not in London, but I know they have them at Under the Moon in Strathroy and probably at Vesta in St Thomas - if you can't get to either place, maybe give them a call and see if they'll ship them to you?

    La Leche League Canada doesn't sell breast pads. Did you get them from the International/US website?

    I've never found a reusuable I liked either. I always leak through them.

    The only disposables I like are the Lanosh brand, which I can only find at Shoppers. They are thin, huge and very absorbant. Johnson and Johnson and Exact brands are cheaper but they look ridiculous through my shirts.

    That is just bizarre! To my understanding they would have been made for LLLI (not LLL Canada), and by law should not have been sold in Canada.

    Same here. Lanisoh is the only one I found that works.

    I think the Gerber ones are what I have. I have about 40 I was super leaky. Still use them occasionally. I got them at Zellers. I think they come in a pack of 8 pairs? It's been awhile. I've used some of them through all 3 babies and they're very absorbent. They show through your shirt, but I wear bras with a layer of padding or whatever it is that hides them.

    I use Lanisoh, never had a problem with them. I have reusable ones too and they are crap, they don't lay flat, it is quite obvious that I have something stuffed in my bra. That is not something that I want to share with everyone

    Exactly the same as Dragonfly. I didn't like the reusable ones and since I need them 24/7 I'd rather be comfy.

    I've used washable ones and disposable ones and the washable ones leak. What someone needs to do is sew a plastic lining on the back of the reusable ones so they won't leak.
