    Well, these pads generally do the trick- if I miss two feedings they'll soak through (as will my bra), but for general protection from leaks they work as well or better than the disposables and I like the fact that I am contributing less to landfill. My biggest complaint is that after a few washings they become a little nubby and lose softness.

    I think I saved a lot of money (biggest plus) by using and reusing these pads. I nursed my daughter till she was 2 yrs old and needed 1-3 pairs daily. I think I bought 5 sets because some disappeared in the wash. Well, that's leading the problem I had with these. It clogged up my washer because a bunch of them got stuck in my washer and it was embarrassing having the service man fish them out and wonder out loud what they were. Regardless, use the enclosed mesh bag and make sure it is securely fastened when you wash them in the washing machine (mine was a front load which makes it easier for the little pads to get stuck in them) or get a zippered mesh bag, the kind you use for lingerie.
    Otherwise, they are comfortable. I didn't mind when they got a bit old and pilled a little. It may be because I washed them in very hot water. They do show under thinner clothes but they were a good size for me (I'm petite).

          These are too small and don't seem very absorbent. Not good for all day use but I do use them if I know I won't be wearing them long.

            Comments about Avent Washable Breast Pads, 6 ea:

            Since these are reusable, they are more cost effective and better for the environment than the disposable pads. Plus I've heard the disposables can more easily cause mastitis. But the disposable kind soak up way more and don't stick to sore nipples.

            These stick to sore nipples and make your nipples fuzzy, and they can leak after a few hours of wear, especially if you're laying down. They are fine, just not the best. I'll continue to use them because I'm cheap and I don't want to be wasteful, but sometimes I consider buying more Lansinoh disposables.

              Comments about Avent Washable Breast Pads, 6 ea:

              Unless your nursing bra is padded, these aren't for you. They aren't really absorbant and they tend to leak. I suppose if you were to use this product when leaking is a lot less, then perhaps this is good. I highly recommend Lansinoh disposable pads.

              Comments about Avent Washable Breast Pads, 6 ea:

              They're absorbent and easy to clean, but the shape is too rigid -- the outline shows through all but the bulkiest clothing. I guess if you use a padded bra it wouldn't be a problem, but most nursing bras are pretty thin.

              Comments about Avent Washable Breast Pads, 6 ea:

              I love these! I've tried a number of disposable and several washable pad and nothing works as this does. Although I am large, I had no problem with the size - the pads stay exactly where you place them. They soak up milk easily and pull it away from your skin, and don't leave you looking lumpy as some disposable pads do. Highly recommended!

              Comments about Avent Washable Breast Pads, 6 ea:

              These pads are very small so you have to be careful that they are centered and don't shift as you go through your day. I am a small 34 C and they were still quite small on me. Also, if you're wearing a thin bra, you can see them through your shirt, which is a bit embarrassing. They're as good at protecting leaks as any other washable breast pads, probably not good for the first few weeks when you leak a lot but good after that. They are a good price for 6 pads though. I prefer the brand Dr. Brown's because they're bigger and contoured.

              Their size are too small for me, though they are really soft. They also leak in a minute when I feel the milk is coming. I can only use those at home; for going outside, I have to use disposable ones.
