This review is from: Nursing Pads Original Style, Small (Baby Product)
First, these nursing pads work really well. I tried Lansinoh and J&J disposables and UnderKanppies and Bamboobies washables. The disposables stuck to my nipples, and the other washables kept too much moisture against my nipples, causing them to itch. Also, it was really hard to always make sure to wash the nursing pads, and I didn't want to make the investment to have 10 pairs just in case.
These don't have to be washed but once in a loooong while. I've been wearing mine for almost a month and STILL haven't washed them. When I do, it's just a quick soak and then leave them out to dry. So much easier!
Also, I worried about the wool in the heat as I live in Houston, Texas. So far, they haven't been a problem. We've had about a week of 90+ degree days with high humidity, so I think that's a fair test.
Sizing is tricky. I tried the small and the x-small because I'm wearing a 32C. The x-small fit inside my bras better, but I've always heard these are supposed to cover basically the whole breast, so I went with the small. A little will peak out at the top/sides/bottom of my bra, but it's actually LESS lumpy than the x-small where you could see the circle of the pad.
My supply has evened out, so I don't ALWAYS have to wear pads, but I do just in case. I'm not sure how these would have performed when my milk first came in and I was soaking through my shirts every night, but I plan on using them with my next child to find out. I like them that much, and I'm glad I CAN use them again.
They may seem pricey, but you only need 2 pairs MAX, meaning ~$50. You'd easily spend that in 3 months on disposables. Twice or three times that on having enough pairs of the other types of washable pads.
