These reusable breast-pads are an essential accessory for any mama. The pads are made using Organic Cotton and Bamboo, and come in sets of 3 pairs. Breast Cloth Pads are for those pre & post-partum leakage of fluids, milk or simply as a pad for soothing sore cracked nipples. (For cracked nipples recommended to be used with some Organic Nipple Balm).
Breast pads are completely reusable, washable, and eco-friendly. Designed to be used multiple times and washed with general laundry or nappies.
In the last weeks of pregnancy, the breasts can excrete fluid; post-birth, they can leak excessive amounts of breast-milk. So using a pad placed in the bra to cover the nipples, helps contain this leakage.
Note: When new, pads will be more fleecey, and may stick to breast where the nipples have cracked. So in these cases, apply oil/nipple balm before placing your pad over top.
Using reusable breast pads, can potentially save upwards of 1000 disposables pads used per child, based on the average mother requiring 8 changes a day for 3 months!
Bare & Boho (and us!) truly believe in the importance of nurturing the feminine body, both before pregnancy and post-birth, through the use of natural, healthy and non-toxic products. We also greatly believe that products for our bodies, should not have to cost the earth!
Simply place a pad in your bra against the nipple, to absorb fluids.
For cracked/sore nipples, apply nipple balm/oil first and then apply pad- this helps to avoid the pads sticking to torn nipples.
Due to the waterproof backing you can rest assured that fluids won't leak through to your clothing.
When the pad is heavy with fluid, place used pad in dry pail, ready for your next laundry load and use another pad. We recommend washing daily-second day.
