lily padz update? - Page 2

post #21 of 40
I loved mine. I kept wearing them long after the leaking stopped, so my nipples wouldn't show through my clothing.

I adore my Lily Padz...think they're the greatest invention in the world! I hated always buying disp. nursing pads, and I couldn't find any cloth ones that I didn't soak right through. Plus, they didn't look bulky onder clothing like some regular nursing pads. Braless in the summer with tank tops is nice, too. You can even wear them swiming and they won't fall off.

If they lose their stick, you just need to wash them with warm water and some dish washing liquid and let them air dry. (I learned you can't use hand soap that has any type of moisturizer in it because they get "greasy" and REALLY won't stick!)

ok I got mine and have been using them for about a week. I really like them though it took me a bit to get used to the synthetic material of them. I did fall asleep with them on last night and have a big welt on my breast and it's all itchy now. anyone ever have that happen?

I've only had that when I was engorged and the skin on my breasts hurt anyway. I wouldn't think it's an allergic reaction if you've used them successfully during the day.

I have the same thing happen, and it's very itchy. It seems to be worse with me when I sweat.

I've never slept with them on, but I sometimes wear them during the day to keep from poking someone's eye out (I hate the nippley look). I wear them at work (7 or 8 hours) and I have little red bumps where they cover. I imagine if I wore them all night I'd have a worse rash.

These things didn't work for me in the early nursing days. I had OALD and even when I applied them correctly, milk would leak out the sides. I regretted spending the money on them. I eventually didn't need nursing pads at all anymore and rediscovered the LilyPadz now that it is warm and I'm wearing thinner shirts. I always have to wash my bbs before nursing ds because it gets so sweaty under there. I don't think ds minds, but I do.

I think I would agree with everyone else here... Mom got me LilyPadz when DS was born and it was a 100 degree August. I think a combo of sweat, milk coming in and the fact that I'm well endowed all added up for LilyPadz to not work for me. I leaked so much that the milk would be pouring down the sides of my body (although, with some of my baby doll shirts [tight on top, loose on bottom] that was an advantage cuz no one could tell I was leaking but I was wet skinned). And I didn't like the stinky smell of sweatymilky boobs when I took them off.

However, DS is now almost 10 months old and I used them to go braless at a baseball game last week. Now that my supply has evened out, they worked great! DS actually liked holding it while he nursed on that side!

i am a big fan of lilly padz i have been using them for about 6 months the same pair never had any problems no infections nothing at all. i love not having to wear a bra to bed and i like that i dont waste my presious milk i have also found since using them that i have stopped leaking so much i think because the mlk doesn't come out only to be wasted in a absorbent pad. in my opinion they are worth the money i had a problem with a pair i brought they lost there stick and they sent me a new pair free of charge and i also didn't have to go to the trouble of sending them back.
good luck

i wear them under the skinny strapped tanks for summer, or under fancy clothes. But i've never had a problem with my ducts getting clogged. I don't think i'd like them everyday.

Anxious for any updates you have... our babes, as you know, are the same age approx and I still leak like crazy. I can't wear reusable ones because it's like wearing a kleenex - I go right through 'em. I hate using disposables but I haven't had any other choice.

where to buy them?

I am also leaking ALL the time and would enjoy some braless time
Could you give me the name of a "safe" website where I can find them?
Thank you for your help

I just bought a pair of Lilypadz b/c I'll need to go braless under the bridesmaid dress I'll be wearing for my sister's wedding. I wore them for one day, and they seemed to work well (stayed put, prevented leaks), but the edges seem to cut into me a bit. Am I doing something wrong? Anyone else have this problem?

I'm bummed because I was hoping to be able to give up disposable nursing pads. But for the time being, I'm finding Lansinoh pads MUCH more comfortable. I feel awful about filling up the garbage with sposies, but I'm a big-time leaker, and the cloth pads don't do squat for me.

I did not have that problem with the LilyPadz (I only wear them on rare occasions.) Perhaps it has to do with breast shape???

I was also a Lansinoh devotee until I stopped leaking. The cloth pads were a joke.

I wondered that, too...but you'd think someone with big breasts would have that problem. Mine are tiny!

they can be a little irritating the first time or two you wear them... have you given them another try?

Nope, not yet. You're probably right...I should try them again.
