I remember my first experience with disposable nursing pads. It was my second child and first time breastfeeding, my breasts were so sore for the first 3 weeks and every single time I used a disposable nursing pad they would stick to my breasts causing horrible pain when I tried to remove them. It was a horrible experience, which lead me to search out a more comfortable option.
Cloth nursing pads are great, typically they are made from cotton or flannel material, but now some are being made from velour and even bamboo. The second two materials are my personal favorites, they are the softest and most absorbent. This particular bamboo nursing pads from My Newborn are very thick, but that is fantastic for those who leak heavily, no chance of leaking through your pads and getting those perfect circle wet marks on your shirt in the middle of the store! (Yes, been there too)
I like how easy these are to wash, in fact the more you wash these nursing pads the softer and more absorbent they become. So, I guess you could say these nursing pads get better in time. The bamboo material naturally has anti-allergic and antibacterial properties, which gives you all the anti fungal and antibacterial benefits. These pads have a bamboo side and also have a PUL or similar waterproof material on the back to help prevent leaks.
You can get an 8 pack on Amazon (this gives you a total of 16 pads)
