Please could you recommend me your favourite breastpads for using at night when baby is sleeping lng stretches? Fed up of waking up soaking wet!

I found the Lansinoh ones to be the only ones that ever stayed in place! I really like the Ana Wiz reusable ones from Amazon too but you'd probably need to do some Velcro or something so they don't move about!

I prefer the washable reusable ones but I don't have a massive supply. You can get breast she'll things that collect milk, but I don't know if they work lying down.

The boots extra absorbant /thick ones. They're the only ones that didn't leave me soaking wet

NOT sainsburys - they're tiny! Lansinoh were ok for me.

I found Tommee Tippee to be the best by far.

They come individually wrapped so handy to keep in car / changing bag.

Lansinoh. I don't use the sticky strips though, I just tuck them in my bra. And H&M nursing vests are great.

Another vote for lanisoh

It was a good couple of years ago that I last used them, but will be getting some again... Asda Little Angels breast pads. They stayed in place well, were thick and felt comfortably cushioned and a decent size too. Although thick, they seemed to show up less than the much thinner lansinoh ones I tried and didn't crinkle like lansinoh. Seem to remember them being quite similar to Tommee Tippee ones, but way cheaper (but they weren't individually wrapped, so more for use at home). Hoping they haven't changed the design!

Lansinoh vote here.

I have the close pop in washable ones from jo jo maman bebe. £11 for 6, constantly in the wash! No leaks so far, 3 months in.

gaggiagirl Sun 21-May-17 06:33:06

Just going to echo everyone else and vote for the reusable ana wiz ones, lanisoh, tommee tippee and asda little angels.

Lansinoh here too, I put two in each bra cup overlapping at night in the beginning because I was sick of waking up drenched. Sleeping on a towel as well so I didn't have to change bedding every morning.

I also had the reusable ones from jojo - they were brilliant and so comfortable compared to the disposable ones.

Lansinoh. Seemed to be similar to nappies in containing some kind of gel. Tescos weren't good, soaked v quickly. But this 8 years ago!!

Washable ones from little lambs. At the beginning when I leaked continuously, I would use one of those on top of a weenotions fleece washable one. That combo was amazing!

abigwideworld Sun 21-May-17 07:06:25

Washable boots ones

TabbyTurmoil Sun 21-May-17 07:09:05

I wasn't very leaky but I had really damaged nipples and got some wool ones which were absorbent and v soothing - maybe not right for the OP but might be useful to someone feeling sore!

Washables from Little Lambs - super comfy and less hideous waste.

Tamatoa Sun 21-May-17 07:13:15

Lanisoh! They have gel crystals to keep the liquid in, so you don't get swampy wet boobs. Only ones that have these as far as I know.

There is a great website - Babi Pur - they have a great selection of reusable ones that get good reviews.

Definitely the lansinoh Ines. You can buy them in bulk on Amazon - 240 pads for £22.67:

I liked the washable ones because they're so comfy. But if it's a night you're leaking lots you could try a folded up muslin in a feeding vest?

badg3r Sun 21-May-17 07:40:20

Big washable bamboo ones. Like big sponges and super comfy!

Bolshybookworm Sun 21-May-17 07:41:34

Lansinoh here too. They were also the only ones that didn't stick to my cracked nipples in the early days confused
I had a bit of an oversupply so couldn't use the reusable ones until I had started weaning DC- they soaked through too quickly.
