These Lansinoh nursing pads get five star reviews! I can personally vouch for these pads, I used them throughout the first few months after having my little one and waiting for my supply to settle – they have an absorbent core which makes them able to absorb 20 x it’s weight! Plus, I found these were the best ones at staying put during the night too.
