Milk Diapers Nursing Pads Review and Giveaway

Milk Diapers

 My sister received the mentioned product for review and this is her own opinion.  This is a guest post.

Milk Diapers was created when Felicia Gowrylow had trouble with milk leaking after her first child, and found other nursing pads on the market to be unsatisfactory.   She sewed her own pads after her second child was born.  Over the past 30 years, she has redesigned and perfected the pattern and named them “Milk Diapers” due to them being made of non-treated cotton diaper fabrics.

I was sent the Sampling 8 pad pack of nursing pads to review.  It included moisture guard, 5 layer natural, 4 layer white, and white lace pads.  They all have a patented crossover dart, which contours to the breast, causing them to lay flat under clothing.  Overall, I was really pleased with all of the styles. 

Moisture Guard- This was the most absorbent pair.   I found them to be great for overnight use.  It is a 5 layer white pad with a terry backed polyurethane laminate and has a diameter of 4 ¾- 4 7/8”.  It is also topped with a cream lace to make it pretty.   And let’s face it, who doesn’t need to feel more sexy when you’re leaking?!

5 Layer Natural- This was my favorite pair because the fabric seemed to be more soft than the others, and they were very absorbent.  It has 5 layers of fabric; 100% unbleached cotton birdseye cloth and 100% unbleached cotton flannel cloth.

4 Layer White- This pair is made with 4 layers of 100% cotton birdseye cloth and 100% cotton flannel.  The average diameter is 4 7/8”.   These worked well for daytime use.

White Lace- This is simply the 4 layer white pad topped with white lace.

All of the nursing pads are breathable and comfortable to wear.  A moistened pad will dry while wearing, however, if it becomes soaked, it needs to be changed.  An itchy pad indicates too much dried milk.  Caring for the pads is simple: wash and dry with regular laundry. 

Milk Diapers offers a variety of nursing pad packs, so you can choose one to suit your needs.  They also have some nursing bras to choose from.
