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.
  • 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.

Little Lamb Care Guide

Store dirty nappies in the nappy pail, separating any washable boosters, inserts or liners and closing the Velcro tabs over on themselves.  When you have a load ready, put them in the washer on a 30˚ wash with half the recommended dose of detergent, give them an extra rinse and air dry. That's all there is to it.

Here are a few tips:                         

- Dry pail the nappies.
- Soiled nappies should be washed regularly. Do not leave soiled nappies for longer than three days.
- Check the Velcro tabs are closed tightly on the nappies. Wash our wraps velcroed closed but inside out. Boosters and inserts are best removed from pocket nappies prior to washing.
- We advise washing at 30˚.

The above is all most parents need to know but for the few parents who need it we've included the sum of our knowledge below:

Detergent: In our opinion powder detergents dissolve quicker and rinse better leading to cleaner laundry.

Dosage: We advise starting with half the recommended dose of detergent for the load size and water hardness and working up from there. The amount of detergent needed is dependent on load size, machine type and water hardness. Soft water needs less detergent to be effective and hard water needs more - possibly up to a full recommended dose.

Fabric softener: Do not use fabric softener in your nappy wash - it will coat the fibres and inhibit absorption.

Sanitisers: We do not recommend using sanitisers with your nappy wash. Sanitisers will affect the elastic and Velcro components and shorten the life of your nappies.

Drying: Drying nappies in direct sunshine is best. Placing them by, but not touching, a heat source is effective but do not place them directly on radiators as they may scorch. Avoid using a tumble drier where possible; if you do use a tumble dryer make sure it's on the low heat setting. Do not tumble dry wraps or pocket nappies.

Got these as they were rated very highly by TNL. They are very absorbent and stay in place, they just havenít washed as well as other brands (gone slightly bobbly). Would still recommend though as they work fine even with bobbles, bug might be harder to sell on after

Husband bought these for me. They are great. Very soft, you would hardly notice they are there. Better than disposables with the sticky tabs as you can easily move them around in your bra depending on your position. Wash in normal wash and dry as your other clothes. Easy.

They are a lovely quality material and even though I have not given birth yet, i can tell they will be very absorbant and comfortable when the time comes. I do wish id gone with the lower size - the upper size is quite large, but i didn't measure anything in advance to see how it may fit me.

Amazing breast pads
Sunday, 16 May 2021  | 

These are the best breast pads I have used. Before this I had some boots reusable pads and some handmade WAHM pads. The problem I had with both is that the multiple layers of fabric werenít letting the water rinse through properly in the wash, so milk deposits (and likely bacteria) were building up over time. These bamboo ones are only one layer and super-soft. They wash thoroughly and come out like new each time. Highly recommended.

These are slim, comfortable and absorbent, and dry fast. I did find they went quite bobbly after only a couple of washes, but that could have been our hard water, and it hasnít really made a difference. Theyíre much kinder on the nipple than a disposable I think!

Not only did these arrive with the Nappy Lady's usual speedy delivery, but they are amazing to boot! They're so soft and comfortable next to my skin, wash without issues and they don't have a back, so there's less fussing when repositioning after a feed or a pump. Excellent product.

Love these breast pads, really absorbent and saving from landfill. They are a bit fluffy the first couple of times but after washing 3 or 4 times (a couple of pre washes recommended anyway) this has gone. I got both sizes and the smaller one is fine for me, and fits better in bras.

Wednesday, 4 September 2019  | 

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!

Little lamb breast pads
Friday, 9 August 2019  | 

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..

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 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.

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!
