I don’t mean to post about breastfeeding products two days in a row but what can I say, it’s front and center on my mind! Today, we are taking a look at LilyPadz. Tyler actually found these for me on our first outing to Target. Eloise and I waited in the car and Tyler ran in to get the essentials. Let me say, I am glad he found these… a Wise Secret – while not advertised by the company itself, I found putting them in the freezer between uses to be the best thing sliced bread. Trust me, it’s amazing.
LilyPadz Silicone Nursing Pads
The Wise Baby Rating:
Highlights: LilyPadz are made of “skin-like silicone” and fit comfortably over your breast/nipple region. They are designed to not only prevent leaks from showing but prevent leaking all together. By design, the snug fit stays in place but I also have found it to be soothing to a shall we say, sore region. While the fit is snug it’s not so much so it
puts any unwanted pressure on the tender region. LilyPadz are easy and painless to remove. I have also found adding a layer on Lanolin underneath the pad before application is helpful. The LilyPadz helps the Lanolin get better absorbed as opposed to no pad and the Lanolin rubbing off on your bra.
Lowlights: Honestly, thus far I have nothing bad to say. The only issue I can see popping is up is durability but so far so good.
Bottom Line: If you’re breast feeding, these are a must have in my mind. Not only are they functional at preventing leaks from showing through they are also supremely soothing (and try them in the freezer!).
On another note, I have tried the Soothies by Lansinoh as well. I was also pleased with these and put them in the freezer too. These are reusable but disposable and last for up to 72 hours.
Tyler ordered me the Blossumz Gel Packs which I look forward to trying. I will be sure to let you know my thoughts.
Is there a breast feeding product you’ve loved? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
