I'm having trouble finding some nursing pads that I like. It's like the holy grail of nursing.
Why do they package the nursing pads where they are fold in half? You put them on and you can clearly see the line where they've been folded through a bra and shirt. Furthermore, why do they have a pleat?
Here's all the brands I've tried:
Cons: too thin, pleated, packed by folding in half, not soothing, complaints that the adhesive stinks
Cons: too thin, pleated, packed by folding in half, not soothing
Pro: thick and soothing, not folded in half in packaging
Con: has an unfortunate nipple indentation, which looks like you are nipping all day long
TL Care Washable Organic Cotton
Pro: soothing, comfortable, good for the environment
Con: I leak through them occasionally and I would say that my leaking problem is minimal
Pros: thicker and more soothing than Lanisoh and Medela
Cons: packed by folding in half
What is your favorite?
P.S. It seems like the prices are cheaper at Target, Kroger, and Buy Buy Baby than at Amazon. Most of the disposable ones are around $7.99 for 60. The washable one was $6.99 for 6.
