Welcome to the Club.
Let’s look at the good news about leaking breasts first: You will very likely have a really great supply of breast milk! (In my case, I always said that my right breast could nurse triplets by itself because it leaked so much!)
Now the bad news: There is not really much you can do about leaking. You will just have to always wear nursing pads or deal with a lot of wet shirts.
Nursing Pads to the Rescue!
Nursing bra pads will prevent the embarrassing wet spots from appearing on your cute clothes. Nothing ruins a really great outfit like a big wet spot on the front.
Try to find good nursing pads that can breathe. I found that disposable ones worked best for me because I soaked through so fast. (Here are the ones I liked best.)

Try different options and see what ones work best for you. Here are some choices that we like.
Favorite Disposal Nursing Pads
Reusable Nursing Pads
Glangels Bamboo Reusable Nursing Pads are a top favorite for moms who want a eco-friendly solution that really works to keep them dry but keeps waste out of the landfills. There’s a soft side that is a super soft velvety material and the outside is a strong leak-proof material. They fit great and work wonders.
Non-Absorbant Nursing Pads
LilyPadz are one-of-a-kind nursing pads. They are continuously-usable and non-absorbent nursing pads. They can be worn even without a bra, reused and even worn with a swimsuit. Every mom with leaking breasts should have a pair!
For every mom that you hear that have trouble making enough milk, there is at least one mom who is making enough that she has to worry about leaking. Stop letting it worry you. Try some of the great options to keep the leaking under control and your clothes looking great!
