How to use Super Boober Reusable Breast Pads?
Simply place Super Boober Reusable Breast Pads against each breast, over the nipple, inside your bra, as you would a disposable pad. But, notice the difference – no itchy, uncomfortable, hot plastic to be seen anywhere. Just super soft, breathable, absorbent and seriously stylish fabric to assure you of the ultimate protection against breast milk leaks.
To help prevent the risk of thrush or mastitis it is very important to change your reusable breast pads regularly as they become wet and replace with a clean and dry pad.
How many Super Boober Reusable Breast Pads are required?
Breastfeeding is such an individual journey and as such the amount of breast milk produced will vary from one mum to the next. Some mother’s may need to change pads every hour, while others can go all day on the same pad. Until your milk has come in and your supply is established, it can be hard to gauge. We recommend starting with a 10 pair pack of pads initially and then once your milk is established, you can invest in more if needed.
How to care for Super Boober Reusable Breast Pads?
It is recommended that you wash your Super Boober Reusable Breast Pads before use. This will not only sanitise them for you, but also help to improve their absorbency. The more you wash – the more absorbent they become.
It is also important to wash (or at least rinse) your breast pads within 24 hours after use, to avoid any mould forming on the pads from your breast milk. Your pads must also be completely dry before re-using.
To wash your pads, simply pop them in a laundry bag (so they don’t get lost like socks!) and add them to your regular laundry cycle – go easy on the fabric softener though as this can affect the absorbency level. Pads can be air dried on the line or tumble dried on a cool setting in the dryer.
Super Boober Reusable Breast Pad Composition:
There are several patterns on offer with each pad offering three layers of protection. A super soft Bamboo layer that sits against your skin, an ultra-absorbent middle micro-fibre layer to soak up leaky breast milk and a fabulously funky outer patterned layer of waterproof PUL.
Each pad is 12cm in diameter, super slim and shapes perfectly around your breasts so there’s no lumps or bumps under your clothing.
