Washable nursing pads - What type do you need?

Posted by Ysabel Li-Lopez on

What size and type of nursing pad do I need? 

Nursing pads, also called breast pads, are a very useful and needed breastfeeding accessory. Placed into a regular or a nursing bra, they can absorb breast milk from leaking breasts to help prevent embarrassment, and protect your clothing from stains.For many women, leaking is more common in the early days of breastfeeding, while the supply of breast milk adjusts to your baby's needs. For some other women, it might last the entire breastfeeding journey.Leaking may occur, when your breasts become very full, when you're intimate with your partner, on one breast when you are breastfeeding your baby or sometimes, just for no reason.Breast pads come in different types, shapes and sizes, and they can be disposable or reusable. Reusable pads are environmentally friendly and less expensive in the long run, since you can wash and wear them again.Lactation consultants and Drs. recommend nursing pads that are soft, absorbent and made of cotton.

Nurture-Elle is thrilled to introduce our new nursing pads made in Canada. These nursing pads come in 2 presentations. You can use one for the day and the other one for the night. Regardless of which nursing pad fabric option you select, each has a breathable moisture resistant layer which helps prevent embarrassing leakage while allowing the sensitive breast tissue to breathe.

These nursing pads are breathable, anti-bacterial and super absorbent and long enough to cover the entire breast area (5” diameter). These nursing/ breast pads are made of organic cotton and that makes these nursing pads extremely soft, smooth & non-bulky. They are reusable, washable, anti-bacterial, natural, comfortable, soft, absorbent, contoured, discrete.
