About the company: Miny Moe was created by Heather who was a new mom and overwhelmed by the amount of choices available on the market for breast pads and diapers. She hopes that by creating sampler packs like these that families can see what’s best for them, which will eliminate the waste we produce. Instead of having to go “eeny meeny miny moe” after trying Miny Moe you will be able to find what’s perfect for your family.
Breast feeding is one of the most amazing things to me. Knowing that I could provide my daughter with absolutely everything that she needs in order to thrive is such an accomplishment and it feels great. What doesn’t feel great is looking down at your shirt and realizing milk has been leaking for the last 30 minutes and you are now soaking wet because you forgot to put breast pads in your bra.
I personally did not have a huge problem with leaking except when the baby was laying directly on my chest during the first few months, but I was terrified about being in public and having a huge milk stain on my shirt so I always wore pads. For the most part, I use reusable pads because I try to be environmentally conscious, but when we are going away for a few days I like the ease of disposables so I don’t have one more thing to wash when we get home. Since Baby Skibbles is 5 months now we have already figured out the brands that work for us, but it wasn’t easy. Some of them were too big for me and made it look like I had stuffed my bra with tissues, while others just weren’t as absorbant as I would have liked. Given this problem, I’m so excited to tell you about a company I just found and so wish I would have known about when I was expecting.
I received the Miny Moe‘s Mama’s Mega Pack for review. This pack is amazing because it includes everything to help you find the perfect pads so you don’t have any embarrassing moments while breastfeeding. There are 4 sets of reusable/washable nursing pads, as well as 3 pairs of disposable pads. This would make an amazing gift for an expecting mom that plans on breastfeeding (they offer gift wrap too!)
The brands include:
All of the disposable pads have about the same size/absorbency, however, as you see see the below, the reusable pads very in size, shape, and thickness. Not only do they help you save money by being able to wash them over and over, but you are sure to find a great match for you too!
Improvements: I do wish that they were individually packaged with a label to easily tell what they were. There is a information sheet that comes in the package, however, in the event that the sheet gets lost and all the pads aren’t used it may be hard to tell them apart.
WIN IT: One lucky reader is going to win their own Miny Moe Mama’s Mega Pack breast pad sampler pack along with some amazing other prizes in our Mother Knows Breast Event. Check back on TOMORROW, April 29th, for the complete giveaway details!!
