I’ve made it to 33 weeks and am honestly a bit surprised by that. With all the fear that this baby is at risk of pre-term labor, I was afraid that I would not have made it this far, but I did. If she could only hold out 4 more weeks, we will be at term. As I’ve written before, I’ve made preliminary preparations in case she was to come early, so at this point, I’m just adding to my hospital bag and supplies. Part of this is making sure I have plenty of reusable nursing pads.
I remember with my first pregnancy how much I would leak. I would feed on one side and the other was just drip everywhere. Even though I didn’t produce enough to exclusively breastfeed my child, I made enough where I needed to use nursing pads to not drip everywhere I went, but not enough to feed exclusively. So now that I’m preparing for baby #2, I’m thinking about things like this when gathering my supplies.
I was sent some Kumfy Soft Nursing Pads that I think will be perfect! The inside of the nursing pad is made of a bamboo rayon and the outer layer is made of a waterproof material to avoid breastmilk from leaking through the nursing pad.
These are honestly the softest nursing pads I have ever seen. I know from using cloth diapers that bamboo is a much more absorbent material than regular cotton so these will hold a lot more breastmilk before leaking than the cotton nursing pads you can buy at the store.
You can wash and dry these in your washer and dryer with the rest of your clothes on a regular cycle, because as a mom, you don’t want anything that is more complicated than it has to be since your time really is precious. I would recommend keeping your wash routine simple. From my experience using cloth diapers, just washing these in a warm wash with Tide is all you need. No fabric softeners needed. Actually, fabric softeners will affect the absorbency of them so keep it simple. In the product description, it also says you can use nipple creams with them, but I would be a bit weary of using lanolin creams with them because lanolin will affect the absorbency as well.
What I love is that these are reusable! I cloth diapers for financial and ecological reasons, why wouldn’t I do the same when it comes to my own body? It just makes sense to not be spending money on disposable nursing pads if I don’t have to. I also just purchased another pack of them so that I can be sure to keep plenty on hand because they really are that soft and I think they will work marvelously once the baby arrives. I would definitely recommend to my pregnant mama’s to check these out for your own nursing experience.
