I'm looking for reuseable breast pads that are comfortable, absorb well and don't show through too much. Last time around I used disposables and lilypadz and hated both. I'm thinking I may go with something hemp but not too sure where to buy. Any suggestions?

I would blast through cloth pads like they weren't even there. But I have heard some moms say good things about wool pads, I hope someone will chime in for you!

I had some Medela ones...they were my sisters & handed them down to me. Let us know if you find some great ones!

Not in your DDC, but I had to spread my love of breast pads. : I used Milk Diapers with ds and loved them! They have a little dart in them that make them fit so well. My favorites were the green cotton 4-layer ones. You can order them by the pair at if you want to check them out - only $1 shipping. They also make a few other styles, including one with a waterproof layer. It Birth & Baby doesn't have them, check HTH!
