Thanks to the many readers who recommended I try reusable bamboo breast pads: they are indeed quite brilliant. Soft, easily absorbent enough and I don’t feel bad that I’m adding to the landfill with my throwaway pads. (Enough guilt going on with the nappies.) I bought a pack of twelve from Amazon here and they were about a tenner. The only drawback with them is that they are much bulkier than the Lansinoh disposable, so not great if I’m out and about – they also slide around a bit so often make an unwanted appearance by flying out of the top of my t-shirt! But apart from that, perfect – great for stuffing into my sleeping bra overnight and I use them during the day if I’m just knocking about the house. A good tip-off, thanks ever so!
