Something that I’ve been wanting to make for the longest time.
I used reusable breast pads with both my kids and gifted some to Gemma when she had Leo. As we were both Leaky Larry’s, these saved us a bomb on disposable pads as well as saving the earth not ending up in landfill.
Made from the most beautifully soft microfleece, that not only wicks moisture away from the surface, it wont irritate your skin. The inner Bamboo Fleece is super absorbent as well as being super soft. A PUL layer (waterproof layer) is to prevent the pad from becoming soaked through and wetting your bra and clothing (however if not changed regularly enough and the pad reaches max capacity, it may still leak from overflow), and finally they’re finished with a pretty cotton outer layer, because, why not? We have to wear these things, they might as well look good!
As previously mentioned, these are nicer on your skin and the environment than their disposable sisters. they can be washed over and over and wont lose their shape or their absorbency.
1 set is 2 Breast pads
Our breast pads are approx 11cm in diameter
Best washed in a garment bag, on a cold to warm wash and air dried.
PLEASE NOTE: Breast pads are not a magic preventer of leakage. If you have a heavy flow and are a big leaker, it is possible to still occasionally leak through a pad.
If you are finding that you are leaking through your breast pads, we recommend changing them more frequently.
Common times that you may leak more; if your baby is due to be fed and you think about them, this may trigger a letdown. If you are feeding, your other breast will often letdown (the best solution for this is a Haakaa), if your baby sleeps longer especially overnight, you may notice that you wake up wet.
Please ensure that the white side of the pad goes against your skin, the pretty outer layer faces out.
PLEASE NOTE. IF A SELECTED STYLE OF BREAST PAD IS OUT OF STOCK, WE WILL REPLACE WITH A SIMILAR PRINT
