First a little intro from Mama Designs: "Hi My name is Keira and my business Mama Designs Ltd, makes innovative products for babies that make parents' lives easier. All of my products are designed with love as they were inspired by my babies (Sam and Lily) for you to use on yours. Everything has been road tested by mums and babies and fully tested to UK safety standards. I hope you find them useful! Keira x".
I use a nursing bra when feeding so when I unclip the front and pull down to feed my baby the bamboo breast pad does scrunch up however it doesn't leak any already absorbed breast milk and it's easy to sort back into place again plus it's still soft and smooth. The same can't be said when using disposable breast pads as they sometimes stick together (if they have the sticky part to stick to your bra) and when you're constantly clipping and unclipping your bra up and down they become lumping and uncomfortable to wear.
These breast pads are £10.95 per pack and can be washed at 40o. I think you might need 2 packs to keep you going in case you need to change during the day or for night time etc as I'm not sure you'd be able to have them all washed and ready in time for the next use. I certainly didn't any way and was caught short one day when I'd run out of disposable pads and these bamboo one were all in the wash! They are comfortable and easy to wear though so I'd definitely purchase some more and the price is reasonable. Disposable pads are around £5-£10 per pack for around 60 (depending on the brand etc of course) so if you think about it you're saving yourself a good amount of money and also looking after the environment. These breast pads are available from John Lewis and of course direct from Mama Designs.
