    I use disposables, and once per day. I don't leak much at this point, though-- just a bit when she nurses. When Aubs was younger and I leaked all the time, it was 2-3 times per day.

    A lot. Once they start getting uncomfortable I change them. I go through a ton of breast pads. I wish there was a way to get the milk out of the pads.

    See, I don't really leak as far as I can tell. And I don't wanna waste the pads, but I don't wanna be gross either

    The beginning every feed, I used the cheap thin nuks for during the day. At night I use the thicker pads.
    I don't have to use then any more

    I change them when they start feeling uncomfortable.... generally in the morning and before I go to bed, sometimes mid-day depending on how much I pumped.

    When I was leaking, I changed pretty much every feeding. Once he was around 2mos old, I stopped leaking and didn't wear pads again.

    The first 6 months (since I EBF then) 2-3 times a day. Now, once a day
