These are very thin and definitely absorb a lot. I'd say they're my second favourite nursing pads. I hate all nursing pads, so take from that what you will. I find them all itchy and uncomfortable, and these are no exception, but are definitely less uncomfortable than most others (Medela ones are also not as bad as others). They're a little hard to fold right, but that's not too bad. My major con for these would be that the adhesive is too strong - it feels like I'm going to wreck my bras when I remove them. It's nice that they don't shift around but.... a little lighter on the adhesive wouldn't hurt. I've only had one box, though, so perhaps I got a bad batch. All in all, one of the better options in a group of products I dislike.
