Super-soft and luxurious, Dr. Brown's Rachel's Remedy Antimicrobial Breast Pads are made with an absorbent layer of organic cotton Sherpa to place against your skin, and a moisture-guard layer to protect your clothing. An antimicrobial finish has been applied to the breast pads to help eliminate and inhibit bacterial growth that is often found in warm, damp areas.
When using these breast pads I found that they aren’t as absorbent as the disposable ones. The milk congealed around my nipple and became slimy where as with disposable ones the milk absorbed into the pad. These also were a pain to use with a nursing bra, they needed constant adjustments and folded on itself a lot. I like the disposable ones better for this reason because they have the sticky adhesive on the back to stick to your nursing bra.
These pads are ridiculous thin and have zero absorption. I wore these for less than 5 hours one day and had leaked clear through the pad, a tank top, and shirt. I hope to be able to return them to the store because they are not worth their price at all. Very disappointed and would not recommend them to anyone!
Finally someone found a way to make reusable Breast pads that actually fight against yeast infections rather than causing them. These are amazing. Luxurious is an understatement. Organic cotton Sherpa with total leak protection. These are the best nursing pads I’ve ever used and will recommend them to all my nursing friends!

These are the softest most comfortable nursing pads I've ever used. And, they are antimicrobial and help prevent Thrush and Yeast infections, which truly was one of the most painful things I've ever had. I am going to use these even when I'm not leaking to help prevent that from ever happening again. I absolutely love these. Best breast pads on the market, by far.
