Question Exercising with breast pads

Ok ladies, I have a question for ya'll. Do you have breastpads in when you exercise?

I did in the beginning because I leaked constantly. For a few weeks post partum, if felt like if I sneezed I leaked everywhere.

Around 4 months, my supply leveled off and I no longer wear breastpads at all, not even at night. With my first child, I had to wear pads for the full 12 months; the milk just never quit coming!

I would just make sure you get one that is very breathable (no plastic backs) that has a sticky tape part to stay in place in your bra. If you're at home exercising and they bother you, just take them out. So what if you get a little milky?

I have to use them all. the. time. Awake, sleeping, exercising, whatever. I use the Lansinoh ones, I find they are really absorbent and very breathable. I don't usually stick them down unless I'm exercising, then the sticky becomes necessary or they bunch up in the middle of my bra or underneath my breasts. I tried using reusable ones with my first and I just produce too much milk, I'd have them soaked through in no time at all, even after my supply leveled.

My DS is only 10weeks so my supply is still abundant and leaky! I've just starting working out again and now I can see probably what my mistake was, I didn't stick my pads down Because I ended up with rather sore nipples so I figure they must have been rubbing (although I would have thought my nipples would be pretty touch now with the way my monster eats them!).

Back when I needed pads, I bought I set of Lilypadz- they're made of silicone. Awesome stuff. http://www.simplylily.com/

@ SarRawrNaomi - a breastpad is an absorbant pad that breastfeeding mothers put in their bra to contain the milk leakage.
