An upper layer of jersey cotton sits against your maternity bra. 100% Certified Organic Cotton. There is no waterproof layer ensuring there is 100% breathability for total comfort. The cotton is thick enough to protect your clothing, simply change them as they get wet. Washable breast pads are an essential item for all new mothers to keep clothing and bedding dry during the natural process of milk leakage.
Nature's Child Breast pads are 100% Pure Organic Cotton. This ensures there are no nasty chemicals, paper or tastes for a baby when feeding. Just pure organic nature which is the best possible offering for our newborns.
Available in 3 sizes:
- Light & Discreet 10cm diameter. For light leakage. Best used in pregnancy or end of breastfeeding. They are not super absorbent so not suitable for usual leaks, but provide a buffer for light leakage.
- Daytime/Regular 10cm diameter. A-D cup. Very absorbent.
- Night/Large 12cm diameter and thicker D cup Plus and night time all sizes. Suit Mother's D cup plus during day and all cup sizes during the night. Superabsorbent.
To be completely prepared, we recommend 1 pack of regular for daytime and 1 pack of large for night time. You will only need light and discreet as your milk flow begins to lessen. All women breastfeeding will have some milk leakage. The amount varies for each individual. Some women leak for 1 month, while others up to 12 months. Either way, be prepared! This is an essential item for your baby bag.
Day Time Use: Simply position them inside your maternity bra for a snug fit. Change as necessary. You can put used ones in the wash or just wash them under the tap so you can use them again in a few hours once they are dry again. Cotton dry's quickly, unlike bamboo.
Night Time Use: It is essential to use breast pads at night or your bedding will become soaked. Position your large breast pad inside a soft crop top for night sleeping.
Washing Instructions: There are no special washing instructions. Warm or cold wash preferred. No bleaching. Tumble dry okay. Your breast pads will increase in absorbency after 8 washes.
Top Tips: Simply rinse your soiled breast pads under the laundry tap instead of putting them through a full wash cycle every time to ensure supply.
Organic Cotton breast pads can also assist your nipple sensitivity and soreness when you heat or cool before use. We also recommend Nature's Child Certified Organic Nipple Balm for soreness. The financial benefits of washing and reusing breast pads are huge! Which is an added bonus.
Disposable breast pads will cost between 8 - 12 dollars per week depending on the qty and brand.
