Pros: Last MANY washings, great long term, cotton side is soft
Cons: kind of thick, lace is itchy, not SUPER absorbent-not good in early days
I have had these for 5 years. I have used them through 2 kids with about a year or so off of using them. I always wore these even when I wasn't really leaking anymore because my nipples were sensitive and I didn't like them touching my bra. I only have 2 falling apart-I bought 2 sets. They will show unless you have light padding in your bra. I found out the hard way of being exhausted that if you put the lace side to you that's not soft at all and is super uncomfortable. My second son loved to put a "boobie pad" on his ear while he was nursing from 12 months + and would actually find one of these in the laundry basket to snuggle with for naps :). I plan to buy another set of these for our 3rd child. I did notice that some lanolins would stain these and they weren't absorbent enough for me in the early days so I used disposables for the first 6ish weeks.
