I'm undecided about buying Lilypadz. Has anyone else used them? I'd really appreciate your comments.
I'm worried about spending out on them & they don't work for me. I'm on baby No3, due any time now, and with No1 & No2 I breastfed and had huge milk supply wit No1 but with No2 it wasn't so huge, I seemed to regulate really early on. On reading all the info I can find they sound like they'll be suitable but who knows?!
I loved mine before I had DD (!) - I leaked a teeny amount and they were great. Once she arrived though they would just fill up with milk on one side while I fed from the other so I stopped using them. Might be okay now but (a) I'm a bit paranoid and (b) they have lost most of their stick after being covered in fluff in a drawer
If you're not too leaky then they may be worth a go. You do need to replace them after a few months though I think so that's something to take into account (they are pricey!).
If you want a not all that sticky pair to try out then I'll happily send you mine! You can boil them to sterilise them
I've got a similar experience - loved them most of the time, but right at feed time and when feeding they would fill up and leak. And if a normal breastpad leaks you get a little seep out, but if the seal on a Lilypad goes you get a gush!
they did work for me in that they physically stopped the milk coming out but I found that I got engorged very quickly - I came to the conclusion that maybe the milk needs to escape somehow. Mind ending up gathering fluff in a drawer but I was super milky, maybe if you're not over-flowing they would suit you better.
