  • I notice that cotton breast pad stay dryer than other types and it’s nice that they are reusable. They do take a while to dry after washing though but I’ve never experienced any leaks with these Mar 01, 2019

  • Will see the seam through your shirt, but stay in place. Again, will get stuck to leaky nipples. Reusable which is wonderful! I've also never leaked through them Jan 25, 2019

  • I wished it came with more than 2 in a pack. Maybe have 3 sets for light, medium & heavy days. Oct 01, 2018

  • I bought in addition to the disposable nursing pads. I prefer the material of these. They do slide around in my bra during the day. Aug 07, 2018

  • The pads work great but be careful when washing them. The bag/ carrier for them will melt and burn when you put it in the dryer. Jul 17, 2018

    Once washed, form does not stay well. Not as comfortable as others I own. Prefer Kindred Bravely brand. May 18, 2018

  • I had an overproduction of milk & I was always leaking. These were great because they were very absorbent & were reusable (didn’t lose shape after washing). Feb 26, 2018

  • I enjoy washable nursing pads more than disposables. Eco friendly and more comfortable for everyday wear. Feb 18, 2018

  • Washed them once and they crinkled up and were super noticeable underneath clothing no matter what I did. Feb 13, 2018

  • Only used for a short time. After I washed them the edges curled Feb 13, 2018

    Loved these. Comfortable and much more eco friendly than the disposable. Feb 12, 2018

  • I much preferred these to the disposable pads as they were much softer and more comfortable. They do wash well in the machine, you just need to be sure to straighten the pads out a bit after. Jan 13, 2018

  • no, these hold little to nothing and all to quickly end up soaking wet when i use them Jan 10, 2018

    I love these. I have 2 sets so 8 total and this is enough to last a few days. I never have a problem leaking with these. Oct 18, 2017

  • I have both these and the disposable ones. I like the reusable ones since they are softer than the disposable ones. They also hold more but are more likely to get your clothing wet. Jun 26, 2017

  • Not comfortable. I prefer Lanisoh or Bamboobies. Jun 09, 2017

  • I felt they were rough on my skin until I had toughened up. May 28, 2017

    When I washed them they lost their form. I would put them on and they were thick and transparent looked as if I had padded my bra (i kind of did) Jan 27, 2017

  • I really wanted to be able to use these but I think my milk supply/let down is just too strong. They would be soaked after one feeding and I would be changing them too many times a day. Oct 05, 2016

  • I love anything reusable, however these reusable nursing pads do not hold much liquid and end up leaking all over. I'd rather spend a few more bucks and invest in another brand. Oct 05, 2016

    Got these and just leaked straight through them. Not sure how they are useful at all. Slip around all the time, bunchy. Went back to disposable. Oct 05, 2016

  • Feel like cloth. Easy to clean. May 01, 2016

  • These were great for after my supply was regulated and I wasn't leaking so much (around 7 months). They dry fast and are really comfy. Dec 30, 2015

  • I need multiple pairs, i feel like I constantly need to wash them! Nov 22, 2015

  • These were great for the early days and lots of leaking. They have to be washed frequently, so keep that in mind when making the purchase. Feb 26, 2015

  • I like these. Wish they sold them in larger quantity. Nov 22, 2014

  • I don't use them, after washing they lost their form Sep 25, 2014

  • These are my favorite nursing pads Sep 15, 2014

  • Better than the disposable but not fond of the look post washing Jul 28, 2014
