Lily Padz: Review & Giveaway


Baby is home and we are welcoming him with cookies and warm milk.. or at least warm milk.

A couple of months ago I began a search for products that are related to green, healthy living with babies.  One of the things that makes me crazy is throwing paper into the trash.  Therefore - I am not a big fan of disposable nursing pads.  I like the idea of reusable ones, but am a little anxious about them too.  Why?  I am a type 2 diabetic and I frequently battle thrush when nursing.  I have had bad luck with regular pads because they allow moisture to accumulate and yeast to grow.

Lily Padz are silicone nursing pads.  They put pressure on the nipple that actually prevents the milk from leaking.  They are easy to apply and self-sticking.  They are washable and reusable.  These sounded like a GREAT deal.  A single pair of Lily Padz is less than $23!  A Lily Padz Starter Kit is only $36.95. 

I received a Lily Padz Starter Kit to try with Baby.  I was a little bit anxious about leaks, so for the first few days I only tried them at home.  I did have some leaks the first few days.  These were due to user error - it seems like there is a bit of a learning curve to get past when using these.  Today I chose to use them in public for the first time - all day.  No leaks.  My biggest problem was that after a few applications, they needed to be washed in order to be sticky again and I had not brought the wipes or the foam wash with me.  We used dish soap and hot water and it worked as a temporary fix - hoorah.

The good stuff
These are super easy to use once you have just a bit or practice.  They wash easily and can be used again and again!

The bad
I usually don't take my pads ALL the way out in public when feeding a baby.  Maybe that's strange, I just slide them down with my nursing bra or top and pull them back up when I'm done.  With the Lily Padz, I actually have to take them out  and put them back on in public places.  I feel a little awkward about that.

Why I love them
Lily Padz are reusable and affordable.  I feel secure in their ability to keep my dry and help me prevent yeast growth.
