Breastfeeding Leaking Issues


Get a list of what to buy.

Hello Mamas!

This is something not everyone tells you before you have a baby: if you are breastfeeding, prepare for having breast milk everywhere! You will have leaking breasts around the clock, including while nursing, so it’s definitely wise to invest in nursing pads! This video will give you all the information you need on these wonderful pads!

From disposable nursing pads to reusable breast pads, there are many on the market to choose from! Some options for nursing pads include the Lansinoh and the Madela. They have sticky tape on one side and fit nicely into your bra. The Simplisse is very pretty. I love the flower shape. Bamboobies (love the name!) have a super soft nursing pad in a heart shape. These are all great options; it really depends on your own preference!

How did you deal with this and other breastfeeding problems? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!

    With my first son, I primarily used the Lansinoh disposable pads, but that got expensive…and seemed very wasteful! I had some washable pads that came for free with my Bravado nursing bras, but they were bulky and uncomfortable. Now, breastfeeding baby #2, I discovered Charlie Banana washable pads and I am hooked! They’re pretty thin and extremely soft and comfy. I got 3 packs of them (3 pairs per pack), so I always have plenty on hand between laundry days.

    My milk came in and my breast are currently engorged but when it comes time to feed my son he dislikes feeding on my right breast and it leaks bad. any tips to help him latch and feed on that breast better?

    • Jenni, sorry that I didn’t respond earlier I was at BlogHer this weekend! I think you have to try to get him to eat evenly from both breasts, is that one fuller? Can you pump out a bit of milk first? Definitely pump a bit after you feed because that will stimulate that right breast to continue to produce milk! Stay in touch and LMK how it’s going!
