Love these and how easy they are to use and clean. Wear a bra that has standard padding or thickness to avoid the edges from showing, works with most bras. A very environmentally friendly alternative to disposables.
Ultra absorbent, especially during the first few months when milk supply is regulating.
Cotton wicking material on outer layer to keep bra dry
Soft and flexible fit
Perfect amount of coverage. I don't put these in the dryer. They will shrink over time.
Wash in warm water and dry on low heat or, if you feel like fishing them out of all your other clothing, air dry.
These are the pads I'm replacing the two dozen NUK brand reusable pads I used with my first, since they are shrunken, the wicking is shredded and they are basically falling apart. They are worth every penny!
I am a new mom and I exclusively pump. I have tried all the major bag brands and NONE of them compare to these. They are high quality and seal great. I have used more than 150 of them and have yet to run into a defective bag. Thank you thank you thank you Dr. Browns for making such a wonderful product. It was much needed in this category.
I absolutely adore these bags. They're made from really high quality plastic and the double zip ensures a good seal. I use these bags inside "The First Years Milk Storage Organizer", also available online at target. I REALLY recommend getting the combo! No matter how you choose to keep yourself organized, you really can't go wrong with these!
I really like this bag, its really made of good plastic. I also have have lanol ones, those are thiner than these. I wish they were a little cheaper, i bought some last year for [$]but they gone up in prices. overall it is very good n durable product.
I love, love, love these pads! So sad to see they are out of stock when I wanted to order more. They are super thin and not bulky. Also some pads, such as Medelas, they are noisy with the padding. Only downfall is that they do not come pre-packaged so just tossing in the purse or diaper bag isn't sufficent, but I put them in a little zip lock baggie to keep them sanitary.
These pads aren't absorbent enough. They're thin and fairly comfortable and would probably work ok if you don't need much protection, but they left me with wet spots multiple times. If you have any kind of real leakage they won't do you much good.
I bought this pump to use primarily for when I went back to work and I absolutely love it. It was also great at first when breastfeeding was still painful and I needed a break. The customer service is also great! I recently contacted Dr. Browns about where to get a piece that I broke, and they responded quickly to tell me they were sending me an entire new collection kit for free!
This pump works best when proper areas are stimulated, so position may need to be adjusted in the cup. It does not tug like other pumps, but uses compression to achieve milk let-down. I recommend this pump because other pumps (medela) would not work for me. Key is to start with speed high and wait. When it tingles, turn the speed down. Very effective and comfortable to use!

This is a great pump and customer service is wonderful!
I decided to go with this pump versus the popular rival pump after reading the positive reviews on the target website. I have to say I am not disappointed that I made the decision to get this pump.
I pumped at home to start to store up my milk before going back to work once a day and now I pump 2-3 times per day now that I'm back to work. The pump is easy to use and it expresses my milk efficiently. I appreciate the soft cups and never ever experienced any discomfort with pumping.
I had an issue with my connector (it became misshaped by heating it too much in a microwave sterilizer bag) and I contacted customer service for a replacement. Not only are they replacing the part for free and overnighting it to me, they are also sending me a second set because I'm a working mom! The customer service rep also asked me how I was doing with pumping, offered some great advice and was very positive and supportive!
I would recommend this pump to any friends because it is a quality pump and the customer service goes above and beyond!
