It gets better with time but I am almost six months in and breast pads are a part of my weekly shopping list! Sounds like you probably have a great supply though and thats something to be thankful for!
Wait, this is NOT normal? Seriously, I thought wearing pads 24/7 was normal, as was double letdown....
I'm just learning through this group that I probably have OALD and OS....
Some say he blows out his diapers just so he can stay naked longer... and that if you take him to IKEA, he will try to chat up the brightly colored sample rooms on display in the store. All we know is, he's called THE LANCE.

I to my little man! (It's the only way I can get things done!)
The first month postpartum I never wore breast pads, and then on my first day to work (which was only like an hour) I left to come home and feed my baby and I leaked through my top I didn't actually realise until I was home and went to the bathroom and saw myself in the mirror, lol. I was thinking about my daughter on the drive home, lol.
After that day, I wore breast pads 24/7, they work wonders!
hahahahaha i thought everyone experienced this! wow. i really didn't know this.
i have been nursing my son for over 5 months now and i've been wearing lansinoh breastpads 24/7. seriously. and i change them at least 2-4 times a day because they get SOAKED. i am talking, very heavy and soaked.
everytime i nurse on one side, the other lets down and it just sprays and sprays. if i didn't wear breastpads, i would be a mess. i guess i am just used to it now and keep extras in my purse and diaper bag...i don't even think twice about it anymore!
WAHM and exclusively breastfeeding my naturally born son since 9/25/07.
