Breast pads for big leaky boobs!

Postby clothsister » Sun May 11, 2014 8:11 am

Hi I want to use cloth breast pads this time my sister @clothmama would be so proud lol!!!!

Anyway I have quite big breasts (G cup in pregnancy and whilst feeding) and once I get feeding I leak like mad. Had to use breast shields last time whilst feeding with one and could get up to 4 oz from the other by the time I'd finished. Used to pop it in a bottle and give to Chloe or keep for later. Anyway even when I wasn't feeding my boobs left big wet patches through the disposable pads so want to make sure I have very absorbent pads. Any recommendations please??? X

You might find that its not so bad this time around. I was the same with my first but the last 3 I've not had to wear pads at all. I liked Jimmy Riddles, Hollow Oak, Little Gumnut and Wee Notions ones.

Bamboo velour on the front and wool or fleece backed I'd say, you may need to get them withan extra layer of hemp to cope if you are that heavy! I intend on making some for myself so if I get around to it I can make some for you too! Just need to work out where to get the material from and actually do it! You may be better to have a backup plan :giggle:

Sara at Greenabubs does them:

As does Lucie at LoobyLu's last I heard (@knees_on do you still do these lovely?)

Brilliant will get into new house and get buying. Would much rather support a wham than a faceless website. X

I got some of the smaller little lamb ones but find them too small for me. I should have bought the larger ones :(
I use some that Sara @littlesez at Greenabubs made herself which are great :thumbsup:

My boobs appear to grow to the size of my head during pregnancy and beyond :hohoho: and I leak lots, still do now 8 months on.
I had to wear disposable ones at night as the washable ones leaked.
