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. You will need between 5-10 pairs depending on your milk let down and your washing frequency.

These are good, they wash well and dry quickly for bamboo. You need two packs though and get the 13cm unless you have really tiny boobs...Iím a 32C, obviously a bit bigger now but my boobs leak so much the smaller ones just donít last. Theyíre also pretty uncomfortable when wet so you need to change them regularly. Iíd recommend them though taking the above into account!

These reusable breast pads are extremely soft and wash really well. I've even tried them in the tumble dryer which was fine; they're bamboo so they do take quite a while to dry.

I went for the larger size; I sometimes find they don't stay flat and have a crease, but I don't know if that's due to the size or not.

Can't comment on absorbency as I'm only using them for pre-baby leakage at the moment.

Wasnít too impressed with these. Points for being reusable and eco friendly, and it comes with a handy bag to wash them in which is decent quality. I found the pads needed frequent changing throughout the day. They were also difficult to get flat meaning that when I was done feeding and tried to get boob back in bra with one hand, the pad had a tendency to roll up/fold over making it really difficult to get sorted out. They also left fluff on my nipples. I bought these as I already had three sets of reusables from a supermarket and wanted to expand the collection to reduce washes, but have found myself sticking with the same three pairs from the supermarket.

No good to me
Sunday, 14 July 2019  | 

So disappointed, these were great when I was pregnant and leaking tiny (and I mean teeny tiny) amounts. I prewashed them so many times as theyíre bamboo. I have been known to leak quite a large amount with my previous baby so I expected to be the same this time, and for that reason I reached for disposables until my supply was established. I barely leak during the day or night, unless baby does long stretches. These do not hold anything. The second theyíre wet I leak. I donít have an oversupply this time or a strong let down but these just do not work for me. I can wake up soaked before Iím even engorged. I think these will serve their purpose when im feeding less and needing breastpads Ďjust in caseí but I do reach for disposables still at 3 month postpartum. Currently I use them as a replacement for cotton rounds and use with Micellar water. Funnily enough I actually need less micellar water on these than cotton rounds..

These are very comfortable. I went for the bigger size mainly through choice as opposed to a requirement. I found them to be comfortable to wear. I can wear these all day with out any leaking. These are my favourite ones out of the reusable breast pads I have tried.

I love these - very absorbent and fairly discreet, though you do have to rearrange them a bit after a feed. Only minor downside is that since they are bamboo, theyíre not the quickest to dry but the pay off is the absorption. I got two packs (so 10 pairs) and it works well for a weekly wash alongside the baby clothes.

Fluffy breast pads
Tuesday, 12 March 2019  | 

I didn't expect these pads to be as fluffy as thry were. Fibres come off onto me while wearing and are then transfered to baby. So have to watch this. However thry are very thin and discrete. Do take longer to dry than my otherd but thsts the more absorbent fabric.

I adore these - so much more comfortable than disposable ones and stay put a lot better. No leakage either. Very cost effective too as I was using the expensive Lansinoh ones because all the others just rolled up in my bra. Comes with a handy small mesh bag too.

I ordered the bigger size to allow for movement rather than a bigger bust and I am so much more confident with these that they won't leak. They are very soft, although curl a lot, especially straight after a wash and take a wear to flatten out again.

These breast pads are so comfortable, even when things get quite sore and are really good at their job. I have had one or two leaks overnight, when they've just been overwhelmed, but that was my fault for not changing them out! So much nicer than the plastic disposable ones particularly when trying to rearrange after a feed.

Very soft & comfortable. Can wrinkle after feeding, but fine if you just take them out & put then again flat. I have the smaller size , now my flow has calmed down they are fine but couldnít wear them in the first couple of months due to leaking. Now they are my favourites due to softness.

These are so soft and much better for your nipples as they can breath easier unlike with disposables which can be sweaty. They do shrink a wee bit in the wash and leave a little bit of fluff on ur nipples but apart from that are great.

Absorbent, comfortable and I love not having to use disposables. A well-fitting bra is needed otherwise they do wriggle around, also when breastfeeding they need to be moved aside (whereas disposables stay stuck to the bra). Worth a few seconds of extra hassle in my opinion.

Wish I'd switched earlier - great pads!
Friday, 13 July 2018  | 

I switched from disposables to bamboo when my baby was about 6 months as my production has stabilised and even Lefty Leaky was behaving. Little did I realise weaning would bring back some unpredictability and I have really put these pads to the test, I have had a couple of leaks but would have had the same or worse with the disposables tbh! So I wish I'd swapped early as I think they would have coped.

The pads are really comfy - I forget they are there most of the time. The little mesh bag helps to keep dirty and clean separate and makes it easy to chuck them in with any wash. On their first wash I did tumble dry them by accident, but not with any ill effect.

I will be buying more so that I can have a full weeks worth and some spares for holidays etc. Will also remember them as a useful baby shower gift. Thanks Little Lamb!

I never leave reviews so these must be good. Could've saved myself a bomb on disposables with my first if I'd bought these years ago! Really comfy. Waterproof layer is inside (i.e. between bamboo layers) so is soft both sides and therefore sticks in your bra better. You don't sweat in them. Washes well. One accidentally went in a low tumble-dry and came out fine. Ever so slightly fluffy so occasionally sticks but still better than disposables.

Disappointed - Not for big 'leakers'
Thursday, 5 April 2018  | 

Was really excited to get these as I didn't want to shell out for disposables in the long term. Washed them 4-5 times as directed on the original website but was disappointed to find that I have leaked twice today using them for the first time. Luckily I wasn't out and about.. I wish I would have read some more reviews before purchasing as it does seem that these are not suitable for those with a big let down/high leakage.

I had been using washable breast pads bought from Tesco's and Boots and I wasn't happy with either.
I bought these at the same time as a nappy order to reach a minimum spend. I am so pleased I did! When they arrived I didn't think much of them, they didn't have the plastic back I was used to seeing and I didn't think they would work for me, prepared to leak (again 😩 I gave them a go.
They're great! Absorption is fantastic even though they seem small, and they are discrete and comfortable. They wash well and dry really quickly, what more do you want.

Monday, 5 February 2018  | 

I was using the most expensive disposable breastpads for 6 months before I realised there was a reusable option. The disposable wicked away the wetness and so I did wonder if the reusable would be as good. I find these reusables really comfy, and don't feel any dampness. I wear them all day and night and then put them in the wash (in a laundry bag) with the daily wash. The pack of 10 is plenty for me now my milk supply has settled down, but feel even in the early days would be enough. As it's winter they dry on the radiator in a few hours.

These are streets ahead of the other washable breast pads I have found. They are very discreet under clothing, plus so soft and comfortable! In addition they seem to be absorbent enough for 24 hours (although bear in mind I only leak during feeds these days). I wish I'd found them in the early days when my tongue-tied baby gave me sore nipples!

First time mum-to-be so not 100% sure what to expect. Soft and comfortable, absorbent. My only slight issue is with them moving within the bra cup, but as I've never used them before, this may be normal for all breast pads.

My favourite nursing pads - soft and absorbent... only slight downside is (as there is no PUL backing) these can fold in on themselves when unhooking front of bra to feed, making it trickier to get back in place after. Thin too, so shows least of all the pads I've tried.

Washables saved my life
Tuesday, 7 November 2017  | 

Washable breastpads are my top recommendation for nursing mothers! They are much softer and more comfortable than disposable. Life-saver for anyone with sore/cracked nipples, vasospasms, thrush (bamboo is anti-bacterial) etc. Wearing washables has allowed me to wear real clothes again, and live a normal life despite a range of breastfeeding issues. The product: I've got these and the Bamboobies lined ones. The little lamb ones are unlined so stay onto the nursing bra well, even when opened to nurse. I've never found the lack of waterresistant backing to be a problem (and I leaked a lot). These pads are super-soft, but do lint onto nipple a little bit up until 6 washes or so. They are still my top choice of pad, as they are extremely comfortable anddon't show at all even under tighter clothing.

Really Soft!
Thursday, 12 October 2017  | 

These are nice, they are really soft, nice and slim. The 11cm are a similar size to most disposable ones. But I found that I have a very strong let down (possibly because baby is only 5 weeks old) and I soak through these, I possibly should have got the larger ones, it might have helped. But hopefully my supply will settle and then they should be fine.

Wednesday, 4 October 2017  | 

I found the pads to be very soft and sit very comfortably and discreetly in my bra. Unfortunately though I have quite a strong let down, especially at night, so I've had quite a few leakages with these and I've had to resort to disposables.
They work nicely during the day though and I'm hoping that I will be able to use them more as baby settles into a more steady feeding routine.
