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.

One pair of these lasts me all day. They don't "scrunch-up" like disposable pads and have washed well.

Soft and breathable

I do love these breast pads. They're really soft and you can't tell you're wearing them at all. The only problem is you need to double up at night. I tend to do this or wear disposable ones at night as they have the waterproof outer. The other thing is I'd recommend the larger size as they do shrink quite a bit in the wash, and you also need to wash at least 3 times to prevent the fluff coming off on your nipples! But I really do rate them!

I have these in the 13cm size. It took a few washes before they reached full absorbency (same as bamboo nappies I guess) but they're amazing now. I leak a lot some days, and was going through 10-12 disposable pads in a day at times. With these it's max 6 per 24 hours, and they don't feel scratchy like the paper edges on the disposables. Haven't had damp spots on my top since starting these.

Not absorbent enough
Monday, 23 May 2016  | 

Loved the idea of washable breast pads but these are probably only suitable for those with minimal leakage. I opted for the larger 13cm size hoping this would suffice but sadly even changing them regularly, the pads still leak, don't stay put and rumfle easily under clothing. Hope that a more eco-friendly alternative to disposable pads is produced soon. Back to disposables for me. Disappointing after I ordered 10 pairs of these.

Response:

Sorry to hear you didn't get on with these. I personally used them with feeding my children and found them to be fabulous (why they made it onto our site). It is important to prewash all absorbent fabrics before use and breast pads do need to be changed at each feed or they will leak.

Great. Comfy, super soft. They shrink a touch after wash but not a problem, they work great for me generally but on the odd time I had alot of leakage they didn't feel so good.

The breast pads are good, however a few times they feel like they have soaked through.

They also seem to leave fluff around the nipple.

Amazing for sore nipples
Monday, 21 March 2016  | 

I absolutely love these! I bought 2 packs which are enough if I keep on top of the washing. They were amazing at the beginning for sore nipples, so soft and soothing. The fact they're not stay dry helps as well - my nipples felt worse with disposables. At first if I had a heavy let down they didn't contain, so I got some leaks, but it hasn't put me off at all. A very minor point for me. Now at 5 weeks my supply has calmed and I have hardly any leaks at all. I think if I'd got the larger size there would have been less issues

Goodbye disposables!
Tuesday, 8 March 2016  | 

I cannot recommend these highly enough - they are some comfortable and slim, and leak-proof! They feel lso ovely and soft and I no longer get itchy skin which the disposable pads gave me. I bought the 13cm size and think that these are perfect (I wear a 32C bra).

Nice and soft

Have a few different brands of washable pads. These are the softest and most comfortable. I do find they need changing very quickly as I leak often. Would recommend buying more than 6 pairs of you don't want to wash every day allowing for drying time
