Bringing a baby into the world is nothing like the glamorous experience Hollywood would have us believe. Beyond childbirth, mums deal with a host of decidedly unglamorous issues, not the least of which is finding expanding wet marks on our shirts when baby is due for a feed. Apparently a solution for this is to wear a patterned top (!!) but we have found a far more inventive, eco and budget friendly solution.
Cake Maternity are the designers of Cake Lingerie who are known and loved by us here at Babyology for their great range of stylish maternity bras in cup sizes A through to J. Now, following two years of research and development, they have released CupCake reusable nursing pads.
Nursing pads are one of those things that, over the course of time from birth until you wean your baby or your milk supply settles considerably, can end up costing a lot of money if you use the disposable versions. If you plan on breastfeeding, even if only for a short time, it is well worth investing in reusable nursing pads, and these ones from Cake Maternity have all of the features you could want.
The CupCake nursing pads are made from GOTS certified organic cotton and hemp. Hemp fabric is one of the most absorbent materials around, and increases its absorbency with use. It is also antibacterial and environmentally friendly. The nursing pads are designed to draw moisture away from the skin, with a silky smooth layer touching the skin and the PUL waterproofing sitting three layers away from the skin ensuring that the pads stay leak free.
Another great feature of these nursing pads is that they have a pocketed design, allowing for additional liners to be added, increasing the absorbency, an especially great feature for overnight.
The CupCake nursing pads are also slimline and moulded for a better fit and better discretion. They come complete with a rather stylish little waterproof carry pouch for days when you are out and about. Available from Cake Maternity, a three pack of CupCake nursing pads costs $33.90 and a packet of two pairs of liners is $9.90.
