    Thanks! I was just wondering if it worked well, I have been told that using supplements of Fenugreek, etc. can do just as good of a job. I will stick with it and power pump when needed.

    Re: Breast Pads

    I used some from Udder Covers but they usually leaked on me. I use the disaposable ones from Lanisinoh. The Avent ones aren't bad either.
