    Default nursing pads

    When were you able to stop using them? Or is there no end in sight?

    I'm still using them, I leak a lot. My cousin used them right up until she weaned her LO at 6 months.

    I used them for close to 6 months. Mind you I produced enough milk for three babies for a long time and the leaked a lot.

    about six months; I'll use them if I'm out and about a long while JIC, but otherwise at home, don't bother.

    With DS1 I stopped needing them after a few weeks (still had some left in box).

    With DS2 I have let down on the opposite side every time he gets let down on his side -so I have to have them - he is 10 weeks now.

    Around 6-8 months, I think. Are you randomly leaking? When you're nursing? Do you know about applying counter pressure to stop the leaking?
