I have both these and disposable. While disposable is easy with the toss away option these are so comfy, absorbent, cute but most of all I feel better about using these! I am already throwing away diapers everyday so it is nice to be able to keep something out of the garbage. They do everything you can ask for in a nursing pad! They don't have the adhesive that disposable ones do but I haven't found that I need that. By far happy with this purchase!
