This soft pair of reusable breastpads are gentle against skin – perfect for breastfeeding / nursing mothers, or pregnant mothers-to-be who would like to discreetly prevent leaks and discreetly absorb excess milk.
Our breastpads are handmade from a selection of beautiful fabrics, and contain a super-absorbent bamboo and organic cotton inner layer to lock away moisture and keep you dry and leak-free. You can choose from a large range of decorative fabrics (or send in your own for a discount!), from super-soft plush fabrics, to cottons to match your favourite baby carrier. The super-absorbent inner layer means we can make the pads thinner, allowing more discreet use, even under thin clothing.
You can also add a drawstring cotton laundry bag to your order to keep them together in the wash.
~ Features & Benefits ~
• Slim profile – discreet under clothing. No ugly lumps and bumps.
• No leaks – breathable waterproof backing (a medical-grade fabric with a coating protected against fungi and bacteria).
• Washable & reusable – more eco-friendly than using disposables.
• Economical – pay just 4% of the cost of using disposables*.
• Eco-friendly – reducing landfill waste created by disposables.
• Thin, super-absorbent bamboo / organic cotton inner – bamboo has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, helping to reduce the risks of thrush and other infections. It also absorbs more liquid than cotton towelling, meaning pads can be thinner and hold more.
• Pretty, decorative fabric outer – wrap, snuggly plush, or cotton to add a little touch of luxury to an otherwise functional item.
~ Care ~
• Breast pads are easily laundered in with your regular wash. They are worn with the white waterproof backing fabric against your clothing, and the decorative fabric against your skin.
• Synthetics wash 40°C; do not bleach; iron low; do not dry clean; tumble dry low. (Do not iron reverse, or on plush fabric)
