    Hi ladies!
    What breast pads are the best while nursing twins? Trying to get prepared now!!

    I love Bamboobies! So soft and really absorbent (especially the overnight ones).

    I never liked disposable ones. I stuck with a washable kind from Target.

    Lilypadz!!! I LOVED them. They're silicon and just stick right on you. So you could maybe even wear them without a bra, at night. You can wear them swimming or whatever. They're not meant to absorb milk, they put a little pressure on your nipple to keep you from leaking. And the best part? You can't see them under a t-shirt. I HATE that "headlights" look of so many breast pads. If you go too long without nursing, you still might leak a little, so that you'd want to possibly have a rag or something to catch the milk, when you peel them off. I had that happen a few times. But even then, it never leaked out around the pad or onto my clothing while I was wearing them.

    I would really recommend 2 pair, so you can rinse one and leave it to dry when putting on the other. I found them new on ebay for cheaper than from the lilypadz website.

    I have always been a fan of the Nuk ones. I used both the disposable and the washable ones. I like how discreet and comfortable the disposables are. The washable ones I used to save money. I geneally have oversupply and overactive letdown the first 6 months so leaking is a major concern for me. These always worked well for me.

    Don't just assume you'll need them, though, unless you already know you leak. It has to do with how tight the muscles around your nipples are, I've read. I've never leaked but before my first child I waste money on 2 boxes of nursing pads. I gave them away but I now feel like warning moms to not just assume you will leak, or leak more with twins.

    I wonder if I need them... I was leaking with my son a lot, and this time being pregnant with twins, I started leaking around 25 week of pregnancy, but just a little bit. I just want to save money..

    I used the washable kind- they lasted the whole time I needed them.

    Agreed - if cost is a concern, invest in reusable ones. It's more money up front but saves money with each use. I actually used my cloth breast pads for the start of both of my nursing relationships. I still have them tucked away just in case there's a third opportunity. ;)
