Let's dive into the wonderful world of nursing pads – those handy essentials that keep you comfortable, dry, and worry-free during your maternity and breastfeeding journey and are the most popular item in every mums maternity kit!
What are nursing pads?
Nursing pads are like your breast's trusty sidekicks. They're small, absorbent circles that you tuck between your breast and your bra to catch any milk leaks. Whether you're breastfeeding or using a breast pump, these little heroes help prevent embarrassing milk stains and that unexpected "uh-oh" moment when milk decides to make a surprise appearance while you're on the move. Some mamas even experience leakage during pregnancy, so having nursing pads on hand early can be a game-changer!
Our selection of nursing pads – including our gold-medal winning Regular Bamboo Nursing Pads – have been thoughtfully created with mums’ confidence and comfort in mind.
Why choose bamboo nursing pads?
Now, let's talk about the stars of the show – our bamboo nursing pads! Why are they the best? Well, for starters, bamboo is like the magical temperature wizard of the textile world. It keeps you comfy all day long, no matter what's happening. Plus, it's a planet-friendly choice because it's biodegradable, and who doesn't love a little eco-consciousness these days?

Our range of disposable and reusable nursing pads have been thoughtfully created with mums’ confidence and comfort in mind. These bamboo nursing pads have a highly absorbent bamboo inner core, capable of soaking up an incredible 40 times their weight in liquid. They're soft, gentle, and hypoallergenic, treating your skin with the love it deserves making them an ideal choice for new mums and mamas-to-be.
Level up your eco-conscious choices even further with our reusable nursing pads, which are machine washable and feature a super-soft microfibre outer layer to ensure ultimate comfort. They even come with a handy washbag to help you get the best results and extend their life.
Disposable vs. reusable nursing pads: Which is better?
Now, the big question: Should you go for disposable or reusable nursing pads? It really depends on your personal preferences and needs. Let's break it down:
Disposable Nursing Pads:
- Convenient: Disposable nursing pads offer quick and hassle-free use, as they can be easily disposed of after each use.
- Absorbent: Many disposable nursing pads are designed to provide high levels of absorbency, ensuring effective leakage protection.
- Hygienic: Disposable pads offer a fresh and sanitary option, as they can be discarded and replaced regularly.
- Portable: Disposable nursing pads are ideal for on-the-go use, as they can be carried in your bag without the need for additional storage or cleaning.
- Discreet: These pads are often thin and discreet, providing a seamless and inconspicuous appearance under clothing.
- Cost-effective: While there is an ongoing cost for purchasing disposable nursing pads, they generally have a lower upfront cost compared to reusable options.
Reusable Nursing Pads:
- Sustainable: Reusable nursing pads are an environmentally friendly choice, as they can be washed and reused, reducing waste.
- Economical: Although reusable nursing pads may have a higher initial cost, they can be more cost-effective in the long run, as they can be used multiple times.
- Comfortable: Many mums find reusable nursing pads made from soft, natural fibers to be more comfortable against their skin.
- Breathable: Reusable pads often offer enhanced breathability, allowing for better air circulation and reducing the chance of discomfort or irritation.
- Gentle: Reusable pads made from gentle materials provide a soft and gentle touch, reducing the risk of irritation.
When it comes to choosing between disposable and reusable nursing pads, consider these factors alongside your personal preferences. Whichever you pick, know that you're making a choice that suits your lifestyle and helps you feel comfy and confident throughout your maternity and breastfeeding journey. Cheers to dry and happy days, mama!
