This listing is for one (1) pair of nursing pads - if you'd like more than one pair, please convo me for a special order! I may also have more than one ready to go!

**Pattern placement may vary**

Forget the scratchy, plastic-y store bought pads that eat up your money every month! WeeEssentials Nursing Pads are soft, comfortable, and keep you dry without throwing your money away.

I developed my Nursing Pads just because of that reason. But if you are familiar with my work, you know I like pretty things, so pretty they are!

A quilter's cotton print is on the top side (put this side closest to your breast,) and plain white flannel on the back helps to keep your pads from showing through. A thirsty Oeko-Tec Certified 70% rayon-from-bamboo/30% organic cotton core pulls moisture away from your breast and a breathable, waterproof layer of PUL keeps your shirt dry. These are great for day or night!

The pads in this listing are approximately 5" in diameter to fit the majority of cup sizes.

Practical stuff: Usage will depend on your leakage. Early in the nursing relationship, most mothers leak a lot. You'll find you will have to change your nursing pads a couple times a day. As the nursing relationship progresses, many mothers find they can easily go through the daytime using only one set of pads, and changing them out at bedtime.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There’s a common misconception that PUL creates a dark, wet, germ-breeding ground, and that fleece does not. I make pads with both, and *both* will breed bacteria.

Fleece is slightly more breathable, and as such, some moisture in your pad will evaporate into the air, keeping you drier - at least in theory. However, in reality, most of the moisture will stay right in the pad until it is removed. The breast prevents much evaporation on one side, and clothing on the other.

The best thing you can do to prevent infections and thrush is to change your pads as often as necessary:

If your pad is soaked, you need to change it. If you have been wearing the same pad for more than 10-12 hours, you need to change it, whether you have a fleece backing or a PUL backing. Why? It is better to change your pads frequently rather than find a pad that will hold that liquid all day against your skin. Changing your pads often will help prevent infections and thrush, which thrive in moisture.

Care: Place in lingerie bag, machine wash cool, tumble dry low.
