- breast pads
These are great for soothing sore skin but aren’t absorbent so I do occasionally need to layer them with more absorbent pads.
I’ve tried several different types of reusable breast pads, including some other wool ones, and these are hands down my favorite. They’re so soft, and they’re thin and contoured so they don’t show so badly under my shirt. And even 11 days postpartum, I haven’t had any leaks! They seem to absorb well, but with that said, I don’t leak a ton anyway. Still, I would highly recommend these!
Pretty good pads
I like these pads, it collects some leaks good. (I don't have to much or constant milk leaking). It also feels nice next to the skin and helps to balance its temperature. They keep their shape excellent after wash. On my list of favorites it's on a second place after Disana silk-wool pads just because Diana's is more soft, fluffy and even more gentle next to the skin. However, Baber Greens pads are gonna keep their shape better and longer, as well as resist washing better, that what I assume.
I am actually no longer a nursing mama but I use these in a comfy cotton nursing tank and that’s what I use in replacement of a bra. Natural and comfortable, this will be my way of doing things long term. If you are tired of using synthetic bra inserts, you may really enjoy these even if you are no longer nursing.
I got two sets of these per another review, and very glad I did. I received some cotton pads as a gift and haven’t even tried them because I love these! You really don’t feel the wetness because they are wool, which is great for the leaking from nursing. I wash them once they get a little crusty (for lack of better word) from milk - soak in a bowl of water with a little bit of unscented Dr. Bronners Castile soap for 30 minutes then rinse, all in luke warm water. Gentle squeeze and pat dry in a towel, then hang to completely dry.
