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.

Lovely and soft pads. Absorbent. Lost their shape after washing though and couldn't be stretched back.

Try hanging them on a peg airer to dry and they should stay flat.

These pads are very absorbent but also dry quickly after washing. They are very soft and comfy to wear.

Good for bra users

We were very encouraged buying these by the excellent reviews, and I (the father) wear bamboo briefs and socks so am keen on the benefits.

These are best used inside bras as they are unshaped and slipped off my wife's breasts while she is just wearing easy to access tops for feeding.

The shaping is also important if you have large nipples. We've found this to be important.

Finally, which I didn't expect, like my socks they shed bits of small fluff. This means that baby ends up with black bits around his mouth, which is neither attractive nor easy to remove (just as they aren't from my feet!) I don't have this problem with any other bamboo garment, which is the reason why I didn't expect it.

I still love bamboo for its absorbency and antibacterial properties, these just weren't for us.

They are very nice and soft, just wash them before use otherwise your breast will be covered in cotton.

bamboo washable breast pads
Thursday, 24 July 2014  | 

Great size and colour, soft and well made but every time I use them they leave my breasts covered in black bits. These bits are really hard to remove, so I need to wash before feeding baby, which is not conjusive to easy breast feeding. i'd really appreciate some advice if there's a remedy?

They do need to be prewashed several times and this should remove pilling of the fabric.

Only ones worth bothering with

These work very well, they wash very well, very absorbant and generally pleasant to use.
Have tried both sizes and like both, the black ones tend to still be fluffy hence four stars, that seems to be the only downside.

These breast pads are great. They are so soft and comfortable and they are super absorbent. With my first baby I used cotton pads and at times was wearing 3 at once-and my clothes still ended up with wet patches. I haven't had a single leak with these (apart from the odd occasion at night when they have slipped out of place).
The only downside is all the fluff that comes off them sticking to me meaning that baby ends up with bits of fluff in her mouth. This is still happening even after loads of washes. Generally great though

I have found these pads much more comfortable than disposable. Originally bought by a friend as a gift and I came back because I wanted to have more! Do needed changing slightly more often than disposables to prevent leaking!

Washable Breast Pads
Tuesday, 8 July 2014  | 

These are a little bigger than the shops own brand disposable breast pads I also tried, which I felt covered me better, and they have good absorbency. Unfortunately due to my baby not latching on properly at first I suffered from cracked nipples, and found a lot of the fibres in these stuck to the wounds which meant I had to 'peel' the pads off at times which was quite painful. After healing however, I had no problems using these.
