March 19, 2010, Newsletter Issue #156: Dealing with leakage

Tip of the Week

If you are producing a large quantity of milk, or are unable to nurse on a regular schedule you may experience some leakage from your breasts which can vary from a small drop or two, to a very embarrassingly wet shirt. Nursing pads are fairly inexpensive, but hard to keep in place in your bra. If you wear lightweight bras they might also be visible. Many mothers are uncomfortable reusing the same nursing pads over and over despite being washed or find they are easily lost in the wash. However, they can be both cheap and disposable. Simply cut pantiliners into halves and use these as nursing pads. They will not only stick to your bra to stay in place but will be disposable and very inexpensive if you buy the generic ones.
