I have been using reusable nursing pads since I switched to cloth diapers when my daughter was three months old. My daughter nursed until she was two and a half years old, and my son is still going strong at twenty-one months. During the early months breastfeeding both my kids, I leaked quite a bit. While my overproduction is more under control now, I still using pads to prevent embarrassing and annoying leaks on my shirts. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review the nursing pads with laundry bag from Mama Bear Brands in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.
The Mama Bear Brands ten-pack of washable nursing pads with laundry bag currently cost $14.90 on Amazon. Each pair of pads costs approximately $2.98. Other similar bamboo nursing pads generally cost around a dollar more per pair, with some priced a little more and some a little less. I would therefore definitely pay the current price for this set of bamboo nursing pads. I therefore rate the price very positively.
Made with absorbent and durable bamboo, the reusable nursing pads from Mama Bear Brands help put an end to embarrassing leaks and soggy pads. Leak-proof for the best nighttime protection, the reusable nursing pads get softer and softer after each wash. Each pad consists of high absorbent bamboo and a waterproof layer. The pads are also extremely breathable to protect sensitive nipples. The set of ten nursing pads comes with five colors of leak-proof backing (pink, cream, yellow, white, gray) and a bonus pink laundry bag that holds all ten pads. Mama Bear Brands offers a money back guarantee.
I am very impressed with my new reusable nursing pads from Mama Bear Brands. The super absorbent bamboo material is also super soft. The bamboo side feels extremely comfortable against my sensitive skin and also soaks up any leaked milk well. The water-proof baking prevents embarrassing wetness from leaking through to my bra and shirt. Even on the hottest of summer days, my Mama Bear Brands nursing pads remain cool and comfortable. Just last night I was working outside in my yard digging a ditch and moving wheelbarrels of dirt around. Despite sweating up a storm, the nursing pads remained comfortable. I therefore rate the reusable nursing pads from Mama Bear Brands extremely highly in terms of comfort and absorbency.
Washing my new reusable nursing pads is incredibly easy. I put the dirty pads in the included laundry bag (or another of my delicates bags), which I keep in my laundry basket until wash day. Then I do a warm wash in my washing machine with my inexpensive powdered laundry detergent followed by a cold rinse. I finally put all my clean laundry including my clean nursing pads in my dryer and tumble dry for 90 minutes on delicate (low heat). The absorbent bamboo material comes out clean and soft every time. I therefore rate the reusable nursing pads from Mama Bear Brands extremely highly in terms of ease of laundering.
In addition to the softness and absorbency, I also love the large size of the reusable nursing pads from Mama Bear Brands. Each pad measures almost five inches across, which is larger than many of my other cloth nursing pads. The pads still fit comfortably in my 34C bra, but the larger size gives me added protection against embarrassing and annoying leaks. I also like the colors on the waterproof backing. The pink, cream, yellow, white, gray are pretty and feminine. I even light the shade of yellow, which surprises me because I am usually not a huge fan of yellow! The edges of the pads are serged to prevent unraveling. I thus rate the design of the reusable nursing pads from Mama Bear Brands extremely highly.
If you are a breastfeeding mom shopping for cloth nursing pads, I highly recommend the ten-pack from Mama Bear Brands. With super soft bamboo material on one side and a waterproof backing on the other, these reusable nursing pads are super absorbent and leak-proof. The pink, cream, yellow, white, gray colors of the waterproof backing are pretty and feminine. The bamboo material feels very soft against my sensitive skin and soaks up any leaked milk well. Washing my new reusable nursing pads is as easy as washing the rest of my laundry. I also love the size, which is larger than many of my other cloth nursing pads at almost five inches across. My new Mama Bear Brands reusable nursing pads are among my favorite reusable pads in my stash!
