If you're on the fence to make the switch to eco-friendly breastfeeding by using sustainable and reusable products, you probably still have questions! Here are the ten most frequently asked questions about our organic reusable breast pads with all the answers you need to make an informed choice.
1. How do organic reusable breast pads compare to disposable ones in terms of absorbency?
Our organic reusable breast pads are highly absorbent, thanks to their multiple layers of soft, natural fibers. They are designed to effectively absorb moisture and prevent leaks, providing you with the confidence and comfort you deserve.
2. Are these pads easy to clean?
Absolutely! Cleaning our reusable breast pads is a breeze. After use, simply pop them in the provided laundry bag, then toss them in the washing machine on a gentle cycle (30 degrees max) with mild detergent. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can reduce absorbency. Once washed, lay flat to dry, do not tumble dry. We also recommend to line dry in the sunshine. This has the added bonus of sanitising the fabric, removing potential stains and keeping it bright.
3. Will these pads be visible under clothing?
Our breast pads are thoughtfully designed to be discreet under clothing. They are large and slim, providing a smooth and natural appearance. Rest assured, they will blend seamlessly with your attire, allowing you to go about your day with confidence.
4. Can these pads be used during the night?
Yes, our organic reusable breast pads are suitable for overnight use. Their high absorbency and secure fit ensure protection against leaks while you sleep. If you experience heavy nighttime leaking, a trick is to use 2 pads on each breast.
5. Are the pads comfortable to wear?
They're the best! Comfort is a top priority for us. Our organic reusable breast pads are made from soft, breathable materials that feel gentle against your skin. They are designed to provide maximum comfort and prevent irritation or discomfort during breastfeeding.
6. How many pads do I need?
The number of pads needed varies from person to person. We recommend having a minimum of six to eight pads on hand, especially during the early stages of breastfeeding when leaks are more common. This ensures you always have a clean, dry pad ready for use. Ideally, we recommend a total number of 12 or 18 pairs if you don't want to run your washing machine every day.
7. Are these pads suitable for sensitive skin?
Yes, our organic reusable breast pads are hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. They are free from harsh chemicals and are made with natural materials that are gentle on the skin. You can breastfeed with peace of mind, knowing that your skin will remain comfortable and irritation-free.
8. Can I use these pads with nipple creams?
Absolutely! Our organic reusable breast pads are compatible with nipple creams and are actually designed to protect your bra from any stains. They won't interfere with the effectiveness of the cream.
9. How long do these pads last?
With proper care, our organic reusable breast pads can last for a long time. They are made with durable materials that can withstand frequent washing and reuse. Unlike disposable pads, which need to be replaced after each use, our reusable pads provide a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution.
