I must say I liked the Pigeon ones... I suffered from hyperlactation so always had too much milk and they only leaked when they became REALLY full... I changed them at every feed and that prevented them from leaking...
And they are not that expensive for that big box... they also don't show through your clothes... when I was home I would use the Medela Milk Collector that would catch whatever I leaked and I could use that for top up feeds etc when we started introducing the bottle...
All the best!

I am currently using the Pigeon disposable breast pads, but I have nipple thrush so I want to try a more cotton breathable option - fabric. I agree that I haven't had any leaks with the Pigeon disposables but I don't find them very breathable either, hence the good absorption I guess.
StellaK - Thank you for the links. I wish somebody could just give me a review of a brand that they found worked before I spend anymore money. Judging by the overseas reviews of different brands, some brands tend to leak more than others so I was hoping somebody could give me a bit of a review before I part with my money.
completely understandable. i'll ask around a bit and see if i can get you some feedback
i have received a pair of the mother nature ones and they really look very nice and i thought i will go with them.
with G i also had lots of milk and leaked terribly, so the mother nature ones looked like the best option to me - i know their nappies are extremely absorbent and its basically the same material

StellaK - Okay, I have just ordered the mother Nature breast pads. Hopefully will have them in a week's time. Will come and give feedback.
But would love to hear from other ladies and their experiences too since I would like to get more since I plan to breast feed for a while still and prefer to go the fabric/cloth route rather than disposables.
The Avent fabric breast pads get good reviews on Amazon. I see Dischem also sells them.
