What's the best kind of fabric to use for breast pads?<br><br>
My first thought was to get a few prefold diapers, cut circles out and hem the circles. Another thought was the 560 million flannel receiving blankets I was given and never used...

I think the flannel would be better than a prefold b/c of the way a prefold wrinkles/fluffs up...it might be too bulky/bumpy. You could put a piece of felted wool on the back side of the flannel layers to make it a bit waterproof.

Flannel is comfy and absorbant, velour on the outside really helps them stay in place. I always add a layer of terry (cut out of old bath towels) in between for extra absorption.
