Nursing Pads





Honestly...who thought that shoving a piece of scratchy "paper" into your bra was going to be a good thing? This one is for all you nursing mothers out there. I know, I have been there myself...twice! You go to your local drug store and pick up a box of nursing pads that are labeled "contoured" or "comfort fit". Then you get them home and open the box only to find what looks to be miniature coffee pot liners with some sort of cotton sandwiched in between. What is that?! On top of the itchy, "drier sheet" feeling on your woman-parts, if you wear any type of fitted shirt your boobs end up looking misshappen and pointed in places. Not at all the MILF look you were going for! As if it weren't bad enough, a box of 30 lasts about a week, so you are constantly spending money on these to keep the faucets from leaking in public.

No more ladies! I'm currently in the process of running trials on my latest addition to the Just for Moms line. Cloth nursing pads! Yes, REAL cloth! Fashionable prints on the outside, two layers of terry cloth on the inside, and only the softest microfleece against your body. The microfleece wicks away moisture and the terry cloth absorbs it keeping your body dry.

The shape of these pads will fit nicely inside your bra without creating any unwanted or unnatural shape when wearing a form-fitting shirt. These will be available in 5" diameter regular coverage, and 6" diameter night coverage.

The best part...they are washable!! No more spending money on disposable breast pads! Buy a set of 2 to try, or a complete set of 20. Just toss them in the washer and drier in a lingere bag. Machine wash, tumble dry. It doesn't get any better than that!

So, if you are looking to save money as well as be comfortable while nursing, look for these on Etsy soon!

Haha, I can totally recognize myself in this... Too bad (well not really) that I don't have that problem anymore. Maybe will try some out with the next baby :)
