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!
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.
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.
