Brand:  Little Lamb

Little Lamb washable breast pads in my opinion are THE BEST washable breast pads I’ve ever used and I’ve tried many brands over the years of breastfeeding my three children.

So why are they go good.....?

  • They are extremely slim making them discrete in your bra and under clothing. You’ll have no more telltale round outlines under clothes even with fitted tops.
  • They are lined with a breathable PUL coating to ensure you don’t get any leaks. Many of the washable breast pads I tried didn’t have a waterproof layer at all. Once these other pads were saturated the milk would begin to seep through to your bra and clothes.
  • They are made of incredibly soft and super absorbent bamboo which holds more liquid than traditional cotton pads.
  • Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal reducing the risks of yeast infections.
  • The diameter of the pads is 11cm or 13cm so they will not slip about or peek out of your top. 11cm are the average size however for more well endowed ladies (lucky you) 13cm offer better coverage and higher absorbency. 

Simply pop these into your bra and position centrally over your nipple. They are highly absorbent and even with my strong milk let down I never needed to change them due to them being saturated. In the first few months of breastfeeding I did change them during the day purely for hygiene but over time as my milk flow began to settle down they were perfect for all day use. I also used these for managing night time leaking too.

I wash them with my normal household washing at either 30 or 40deg and dry them on an airer over night. You may find putting them into a small mesh laundry bag helps prevent them getting separated or lost in with other washing.

The breast pads come in packs of 5 pairs and are tied together with a ribbon to reduce packaging. You will need between 5-10 pairs depending on your milk let down and your washing frequency.

Good alternative to disposables
Monday, 1 February 2016  | 

These breast pads are really soft and discreet. I found they fleeced a lot to begin with (not good when using lanolin balm) so would definately give them a wash before using for the first time. I would buy the bigger size next time for better absorbency.

Great product and service
Wednesday, 20 January 2016  | 

I have been using these pads now for about a month and I really prefer them to the disposable ones. They absorb leaks well and they are easy to put in and take out. The disposable ones have to be stuck in and then if you do a feed they get crumpled and can't be put back without lots of rooting around. The service was also great. My parcel arrived without everything I'd ordered and when I emailed to explain I got a reply the same day and the other items within 2 days.

They do the job
Sunday, 3 January 2016  | 

These breast pads are lovely and soft, and the waterproof inner layer is great at stopping any leaks getting through to clothing. However, it's true what another reviewer has said that you do get fluff stuck to you, even after several washes, which is a bit annoying. Another down side is that they are just flat, not shaped at all like some other pads, so they are more difficult to rearrange once you've finished feeding - putting them back in the right place is a bit of a faff.

Cheaper than buying from little lamb

Lovely and soft, like having little more skins down your bra. Absorbent and thin. A little misshapen now but it doesn't make any difference.

Nice but not for me
Tuesday, 10 November 2015  | 

Lovely and soft and somewhat absorbent but couldn't get them to stay in place, I am a G cup so maybe just a problem with breast size. Still shedding fluff after several washes so had to sort that before each feed. I found the close parent pads suit me better, but on days when I leak a lot I put one of these inside the close parent lad and gives extra protection.

Fantastic product

I decided to try these as an alternative to disposables. They are so soft and absorbent and cannot be seen through clothing. They wash really well too. So glad I found these

Soft, and perfect size
Friday, 30 October 2015  | 

The best breast pads I've tried. So soft, wash brilliantly and I've had no leaks. They're also a great size - so many others come up huge and look ridiculous under my bra, but these are just right (DD cup).

Does tha basic job
Friday, 30 October 2015  | 

The pads are super soft and absorb milk leaks well. So the key bases are covered! On the downside the fabric is quite fluffy and can stick and then be painful to remove. Also the pads scrunch up easily so can be awkward to reposition after a feed.

Disappointing
Wednesday, 28 October 2015  | 

Very disappointed with these as was specifically looking for PUL lined breast pads, these are not PUL lined as stated in the description and therefore leak through when I have a strong let down. Ok if you dont leak too much. They are soft, slim, and comfy to wear.

Response:

These breast pads ARE lined with PUL but the PUL is hidden in the middle of the pad so you can't see it. THis is so you don't have it next to the skin. Put it on with the label to the outside and they are then the right way round.
