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.

Soft but not brilliant.
Thursday, 3 April 2014  | 

The plus points first:
- soft
- easy to wash (40 degrees as per instructions)
- nothing leaks through these
- will save you a fortune.
However:
- they shrank badly after the first wash (so buy the big ones as they don't stay big!)
- they move around a fair bit, it may be a 'big breasted' problem but I am having to rearrange them a couple of times a day.
Saying that, I would still rather be using these than disposables that are just going to go in the bin rather than the wash basket at the end of the day. I can live with the minus points although I do wish they hadn't shrunk as they may have been easier to keep in place.

Good but shed a lot of black fluff
Thursday, 27 March 2014  | 

Even after using a lint roller on these and washing twice they were still shedding fluff which ends up on baby's face, looking like a moustache, but also more worryingly I think some of it got stuck at the back of his throat giving him a little cough. But I couldn't do anything to remove it from inside his mouth. They seem to be improving with use however and I was tired of buying boxes of pads every week.

Breast pads best pads
Tuesday, 18 March 2014  | 

While these are definitely the best washable breastpads I've used unfortunately they still can't contain the overflow. Having said that I do have volume. Love the larger size though

These are exactly as described. Lovely and soft and so much nicer than using disposables.

Need washing advice
Tuesday, 25 February 2014  | 

I was disappointed in these, but I think this could have been prevented had there been instructions to thoroughly wash the pads first. I didn't so ended up with fluff everywhere - on my sore nipples, probably some got swallowed by my baby, and then on the rest of the wash that I subsequently washed them with - a new set of reusable nappies, which even now still have bits of black fluff on them after a few weeks of use and further washing. Maybe the need to prewash bamboo is obvious once you've bought a few reusable things, but I'm new to it!

Great

These work well. I prefer the larger size because there's more margin for error if they move around during the day/night. Very nice to use.

Comfy, absorbent and easy to wash/dry. Much better alternative to disposable plastic backed pads.
