Lily Padz Silicone Nursing Pad Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
        If you've ever breastfed, you know it's more than the oohh and aaahh beautiful moments.  There are tons of uncomfortable, painful, and embarrassing moments.  It's honestly some of the reason you hear women with children claim they aren't shy anymore or aren't embarrassed about certain situations - because we have experienced some pretty intimate, gruesome, and embarrassing things with more than likely more people in the same room than we would have liked!

        Let's be real, breastfeeding can be gross business when you wake up in a pool of your own body fluids.  Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that I'm able to provide the best possible nutrition through my milk for my twin girls, but it definitely has it's 'not-so-great' moments.  When Randi told me we were approved for the LILLY PADZ review I was thrilled!

        I've been wanting to try some sort of alternative to the nasty, thick, disposable breast pads that I was currently using. I've done all the different disposables as well as tried the washable clothe ones.  (Those are like socks, the dryer troll always takes one!) With the amount of milk I am producing for my girls and after two previous children, the other methods have just gotten old.

        Lily Padz are a patented, innovative nursing pad made of a skin-like layer of silicone.  The unique design of Lily Padz maintains pressure on the nipple while in place and forms a non-absorbent barrier that actually PREVENTS breast milk leakage. No more inconvenient pad exchanges.  Both you and your clothes stay dry which is something I know a lot of moms have to agree is a plus!

        This is a very thin silicone that has a tacky side that adheres to the body flawlessly.  They included the Lilly Wash soap to clean them too so you can.  The absolute second I put these on, it was love.  Seriously, I haven't reviewed a better 'baby' product so far.

        Because I did initially have concerns about having it on my skin for so long - with body heat and breast milk, could you potentially develop an infection?  I gave them a call and spoke with Joel at Lily Padz who was extremely informative!  He told me that they had clinical studies done and that the 'gel' substance in a traditional breast pad would hold actual milk against you causing you have much higher risk of infection.
        He also told me if I still felt uneasy and wanted to seriously disinfect them, I could let them soak in a 50/50 distilled vinegar and water solution for 30 minutes.  At this point I have to reiterate how fantastic these are!  Not only did I think they worked great when in use for hours but after speaking with their customer service, I was even more satisfied and thrilled to continue using them!

Cost/Available to purchase:  $22.95-29.95 Silicone Nursing Pad 
Recommendation:  LOVE.  LOVE.  LOVE.  Absolutely run out and buy these.  Not only does it prevent you from springing a leak, but you could also wear these down the road with some dresses you can't always wear a bra with where you want to be more discrete.
