LOL! Here too! I've taken to stuffing each side of my bra with 2 washcloths folded into fourths! I had to go invest in more washcloths, because we kept running out!!

I dread feeding the baby in public if I've forgotten my washcloths. And believe it or not, my lo is four months old and it's just now getting better. Disposable pads can hold tons though, lanishoh (spelling?) is great. But, even then I've still soaked through, but I swear it holds like a pound of milk before it'll leak. I too am constantly washing my bath towels and washcloths when they get sprayed with milk during feedings.

My take- a towel is more of a best friend than "my brest friend" nursing pillow with my squirt guns.

They sell breast shells which fit in your bra that will hold/collect leaked milk, either to keep or discard.
