I have a couple of pantries in the dining room so thats where we store all of our books etc...and on the lower shelves i have art stuff thats easy to get at.

There is a new reusable sylicone breast "pad" that is supposed to stop leeks as opposed to absorb them, by plugging the nipple. Anyone tried them?? They are called LILYPADS. I was wondering if any women with strong letdown have tried them and how they think that they work. they are $30 canadian for 2 reusable pads...alot to spend just to find out that i...
