    Default Do Lilly Padz really work?

    I just bought some Lilly Padz at Motherhood and was wondering if they really work as well as advertized. I have always used disposable nursing pads in the past. Has anyone used these?

    I used them a little bit I couldn't get the leaking to completly stop with them. I used them for over night so I could go braless they worked ok its just the sticky that makes them stick makes you a little tender when you take them off but it says that may last a little while to you get use to them. They may work better for you but I liked them OK. HTH

    I would say they would most likely be best for short periods of time as they don't allow any air flow. Problems could arise if one is prone to thrush.

    Just a thought

    FWIW I used cloth diapers in my shirt at night. It's the only thing that saved my mattress. I don't leak as much any more - 9mo later

    I liked to use my Lily Padz if I was wearing a dress or form fitting top for a nice occasion (wedding & class reunion in my case). They conceal very well and hold the milk in. They DID NOT stop me from leaking, just contained the milk, so I had to empty them carefully every couple hours or before nursing. I didn't wear them daily.

    My Lily Padz worked for me and lost thier stickyness after a while, I also got mastitis because I used them too often and you are unable to leak when you are engorged, but I learned my lesson!They worked right up till I didn't leak anymore.

    I have only used mine when I had to wear an outfit I didnt want the outline of nursing pads. I found them hard to discreetly remove and put back on...

    this is what happened to me the first time I used mine, too. I found out that you have to apply it VERY firmly to the nipple, then flip the rest of the cup on and you won't leak at all. But the good news is, even if you apply it "wrong" you still have leak protection

    I liked them ok and still use them occasionally for special occasions. However, I do not recommend them for everyday wear. They allow NO air to get to your nipples which can cause other problems. I'm convinced i got mastitis and a cracked nipple from wearing them all the time. As soon as i stopped and went back to regular washable pads for everyday use (and healed) I have never had another problem.

    It seems to vary from mother to mother (as you might guess, reading this thread). I know of one mother who found them very irritating to her breasts.

    Great for special occasions, I loved them. But not prone to thrush or engorgement. They definitely make a mess when you nurse, the other side makes a huge splash! They work, though, if you get them on right.
