About the company: Pink Lemonade Shop is run by one amazing woman! Sue is a SAHM/WAHM mom to 4 beautiful kids and a wife of 10 years (Happy Anniversary!). After having her third child, she decided to take the plunge by quitting her full-time job and stay at home with the kids. She believes in providing customers with an excellent quality of product or prompt, friendly customer service. She’s also an admitted fabric snob (who isn’t) and only uses the very best fabrics to make her products. By only the best, I’m talking hand-dyed bamboo velour, lusciously soft minky, and designer cotton woven prints, among others. Products currently available are mama cloth and nursing pads.
I had the opportunity to review with Sue from Pink Lemonade Shop a few months ago when I tested out her postpartum mama cloth after having Baby Skibbles (you can read that review here). Since I was so in love with them, I was naturally beyond thrilled when she contacted me asking me to review her newest product, reusable nursing pads. I have been nursing Baby Skibbles for 7 months now. I feel beyond blessed to be giving her such an amazing gift, but I’ll admit, there are some “accessories” that you just need to help you be confident nursing, especially in public. Washable breast pads are absolutely one of those things. Sue sent one of each of the pairs she currently offers in the mail with an adorable little bow on top.
She currently offers hand-dyed (by her) pads in either Bamboo Velous with Wool backs or PUL backs. While the PUL ones are slimmer than the wool, they were both incredibly thin. The absorbent layers inside are made from Bamboo Fleece.
Now, I don’t have a problem with my boobs leaking at this time, however, I did in the beginning and even now, when I have a nice event or somewhere else I’m going to, I do typically wear reusable breast pads just in case. I mean how embarrassing would it be to be standing at a wedding talking to someone you jut met and then you look down and notice your entire shirt is wet. Not good!
I did want to put the pads to the test even though I know I’m not leaking and to do that I got out the babies medicine dropper. And slowly released about a teaspoon of water into the pads. You couldn’t see any of it! You also can’t see the pads through my shirt, which is awesome because I’ve had that problem before as well with other brands.
Lastly, and honestly most importantly, they feel amazing. They are incredibly soft. And the durability is definitely there. I prefer the wool over the PUL just because they are softer; however most are my go to washable nursing pads that I grab when going anywhere now!
Once again Sue has outdone herself and provided a high quality, affordable product to nursing moms out there. Bravo Sue!!
BUY IT: Wool backed nursing pads are $9 a pair and PUL backs are $8 a pair. This is less than I’ve seen a box of disposables go for and definitely less than other reusable brands, so you simply can’t beat the price for the quality you are getting! Go run & get these NOW!
