Best Nursing Pads Ever!
I have tried many different nursing pads:
Cotton washable pads = a joke. Ha. Nice try being green, not in this area I guess. I soaked through them in 5 minutes and had to change my bra, my shirt, and the baby.
I ended up using Avent disposable nursing pads and went through boxes and boxes of them. They bunched up over a day and kind of stuck to me and were not nice, but I didn't leak through them. Other disposable nursing pads weren't any better and many of them were too big for me. Some crinkled and made me feel like I was wearing a disposable diaper in my shirt.
Towards the end of my nursing days with Julia I found LANA wool pads. I think I actually breathed a sigh of relief putting them on. They were so soft and I wore them constantly. Until I had Esther and started leaking through them.
I may have found perfection in Knickernappies stay dry nursing pads. I've been using them with great success since Esther was born. They are soft fleece on the inside and waterproof PUL on the outside. The inner layer is hemp, which is antimicrobial and super absorbent. These are not bulky at all. I'm thrilled to have a reusable, soft, stay dry nursing pad that I love!
I get mine from Abbys Lane (look here for more retailers). At $3.25 a pair, with free shipping and 5% off for joining the yahoo group, you can buy one of each color. :) If its your first order from Abby's Lane, tell them I sent you (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I received one pair of nursing pads for the review. I already loved them before that though. ;)
