Used these for a year, reordering again.
I give these a five-star rating because they are very comfortable nursing pads with the most bang for my buck. I also have used Medela’s cotton nursing pads, Nuk reusable pads (the kind vented on the back), and Pink Daisy’s organic cotton pads.The reason I am reording after a year of nursing with them is that they started to grow mold spots. All my washable nursing pads did, which I attribute to only having to wash my nursing pad stash 1x/week. I tried bleaching, and also tried bac-out, but those methods didn’t remove the mold. I have “thrown in the towel” on trying, and am going to purchase more.The important thing to me is that these nursing pads are very comfortable, and are thinner than the Pink Daisy organic pads, which are very soft and absorbant compared to these Udder Cover brand. If you have a padded nursing bra, you can probably hide these from view, but don’t count on them to last more than 24 hours. I wear mine from after my morning shower until I nurse my baby the following morning, but when I was first starting out, I had to change them more often, of course, due to supply coming in stronger, and baby nursing more often.For less than $8, I’m willing to invest in these again. They are a good product. I first got them via the website when I got their nursing cover (the “Udder Cover”) and the Milk Bands.
Great, but bunch up in the wash
I received these first free with an actual Udder Cover. I haven’t had any issues with leaking and they are pretty thick. My only gripe is they easily bunch up in the wash into tiny wads that require unfolding and flattening and they can get lost with other clothes. They aren’t my absolute favorite pads (that goes to some I found at Walmart in the store), but they come in second. I also like the size because they aren’t so large. Perfect nursing bra-stuffing size.
Like that they’re all cotton, but shows through clothing
Like that they’re cotton because they are breathable and wick away moisture. However, they’re thick and show thru tight clothing. Since I don’t often wear form fitting clothing after pregnancy, it’s not a big deal and perfectly fine to wear at home or to casual places. Cotton is more comfortable than the disposable Lansinoh nursing pads as well, so illness wearing them often at home. I don’t leak a lot, so they function fine. Bought 3 packs (6 sets) to rotate through.
Eco friendly and a money saver
These pads are fairly absorbent and did the trick. They are a bit on the bulky side so if you wear a thin shirt you will see these through it. I did use a padded nursing bra so this was a non issue. I bought a few packs and washed them in lingerie bags every week. Less waste since they are reused and I never ran out. They are durable, I have been using them for a year now:)
constantly leaking through
I have been really disappointed with the absorption of these. I started using them, and I leaked through horribly. I changed to using two pads on each side, and I am still having that problem. Within 2 hours and 15 minutes of getting dressed, I had a huge wet spots on my shirt with two on each side yesterday. I tried stacking 3 on each side, but that’s stretching out my bra really badly.
Waste of money
I washed these and then the very first time I used them, not even 5 mins after putting them in, I leaked through one. I use other washable pads no problem. In this case you get what you pay for.
