For mothers who have just had a baby, a comfortable anti-spill breast pad is very important. There are various options for breast pads and now there are popular reusable breast pads, so should you choose reusable breast pads?
1. Are reusable pads worth it?
You should know that by reusing over-the-counter pads instead of throwing them in the bin, you are not only saving the environment but also saving money. For example, the cost of a box of disposable pads may be cheaper than reusable pads, but you will need to buy them several times, whereas reusable pads can be used several times without the subsequent cost, making them cheaper than reusable pads.
2. How many pads do I need?
If you are in the early stages of breastfeeding, you can start by buying 5 sets of pads. This way you can use about one pair during washing, three pairs throughout the day and a spare pair in your nappy bag for emergencies. However, everyone's needs are different; it will depend on how much you leak and how often you wish to wash your sanitary towels.
3. How often should you change your reusable breast pads?
As a general rule, you should change your pad every 3 to 4 hours. The nutrient-rich nature of breast milk and body heat make pads an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, so we recommend that you change your pads regularly and frequently.
4. How do I wear a reusable breast pad?
Reusable breast pads are placed into the bra, which means they are held in place by the bra and provide a layer of waterproof protection. Reusable breast pads are suitable for all types of bras, not just nursing bras.
5. How do I get rid of the smell from my reusable breast pads?
Sometimes your breast pads will start to smell bad, this is because they have too much bacteria stored in the fabric. Firstly you need to wash your overflow pads regularly. Make sure you use the right amount of detergent according to the manufacturer's instructions. Next carry out a hot water cycle without detergent and then carry out normal drying. If the problem persists, repeat the process.
6. Are reusable breast pads safe?
Reusable nursing pads are safe to use. Anti-spill pads are usually chosen from pads made from natural materials such as bamboo as an absorbent layer free of chemicals to prevent leakage.
