Have tried Avent and Lanisoh .... anyone have strong preferences for a certain brand? Have run out, need some more, and want to order the best ones!!

Ah this takes me back - I've forgotten a lot about newborn matters but I do remember I used to hunt down Tommee Tippee ones as they seemed to have the most capacity and non-leakiness (I had serious milk surplus)

Thank you - will check them out.

Yes - second vote for the Tommee Tippee ones from me. Don't stick either which is good if your nips are ripped to shreds sore!

I found Johnsons the best in that they were soft and didn';t make my boobs itch. I recently bought some Tommee Tippee ones cause they were more pads for less money than Johnsons, and they weren't too bad, although not as soft as the J's'

I loved johnson & johnson ones. Were really soft and comfortable.

Tommee Tippee by far and I've tried every brand going! Mothercare does three boxes for £10, saving you 5 quid. I still get thru tonnes of them, at 9 weeks!

I used reusable ones. They came with a bag to wash them in so they don't get stuck in the washing machine seal. I can't remember the make but I'll have a think.

I tried boots disposable (fell out), Avent disposable (stuck well but itchy for me) and decided to go for washable ones! They're fab! Boots own - 6 in a pack for about a fiver, so much comfier than disposable ones and less visible under clothes. And you can feel a bit green-smug!

i liked lansinoh ones cos they had a lining on the back but found tommee tippee sooo much softer and more pleasurable in the early weeks so now just use these. never tried johnsons but will do now!

Lansinoh ones were best for me.

Thank you everyone .... have ordered some Tommee Tippee for now ////

do you start to need them less as weeks go by? DD is 11 w.o. now ....

Highly recommend lilypadz

I tried reusable, and lilypadz, but found Boots own brand the best in the end (the ones in the big boxes, not the thin ones in individual wrappers). Stay in place and very absorbent.

Another vote for washables. I use boots own. It's prob saved me a fortune on pads already and I just add them to a normal load of washing

kitkatqueen Sun 07-Jun-09 19:28:01

washables bought for dd1 still have them and expecting no4, so much nicer

KingRolo Sun 07-Jun-09 19:30:30

Johnsons all the way for me. Soft, absorbent and, importantly, the right shape. Don't be tempted to buy Asda, Sainsbury's or Morrisons own brands as they really are awful.

HuffwardlyRudge Sun 07-Jun-09 19:30:40

I know most people have a preference for the pricier ones but I trule preferred the cheap supermarket own brand ones.

kazbeth Sun 07-Jun-09 20:29:22

Johnsons were the comfiest and least likely to itch or move about.

McDreamy Sun 07-Jun-09 20:30:57

Lanisoh are the best for me. Tommee Tippee stuck to me as did Avent.

Picante Sun 07-Jun-09 20:32:24

I was still using them after a year. But then I always had a stupid amount of milk.

dinkystinky Sun 07-Jun-09 20:40:35

Tommee Tippee and Lanisoh are the best for absorbing milk. Avoid supermarket ones if you have a fast let down or leak lots of mlik - they are worse than useless!

littlelamb Sun 07-Jun-09 20:42:41

Tommee Tippee at the beginning. Indestructible. The worst ones I found were tesco- I had a pack with no plastic backing that leaked straight through hmm and even the non defective ones were crap, leaving little tissuey bits behind shock

littlelamb Sun 07-Jun-09 20:44:13

Just seen your question. Ds is 1 tomorrow and still had lots of milk, and I haven't needed them for about 4 months. Worth keeping any you have left over though for when you stop feeding and your boobs take a while to get the hint wink

tassisssss Sun 07-Jun-09 20:45:18

tommee tippee here too but they're ridiculously expensive IMO
