Nursing Aids-Bra Pads
Special Features: Bamboobies are nursing mothers' favorite washable nursing pad because they are the softest, and they are less visible through shirts. Bamboo, organic cotton and hemp make these pads super-absorbent and unbelievably soft. The super-soft velour soothes chafed nipples. The natural anti-microbial aspects of bamboo may help prevent growth of yeast or other germs. The bamboo and hemp fabric absorbs 4 times more milk than cotton. They are not wrinkly or crinkly like disposable pads. Regular Bamboobies are lined with organic bamboo velour to soothe tender nursing nipples on the inside and have a waterproof outer layer to protect your clothes. They're heart-shaped to cup your breast better than a circular pad - no creases means no lines. Bamboobies have a hemp and organic cotton inner core to absorb as much milk as possible.
Overnights are what made one new mother call Bamboobies "a cashmere sweater for my boobies"! Organic Bamboo Fleece outer layers for incredible softness and an inner core made of Hemp and Organic Cotton for maximum absorbency.

These incredibly soft and soothingly comfortable nursing pads are made out of 100% pure untreated merino wool. Wool inherently will absorb 30-40% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet. Your skin is kept dry and able to breathe, aiding in the healing of sore nipples. Only 2 pairs are needed for the entire nursing period. When one pair feels wet, let it air dry while wearing the second pair. Lanolin's cleansing properties keep the wool fresh and hygienic. When needed, wash by hand in lukewarm water with their suggested LANACare soap to retain the best quality or a few drops of mild hair shampoo. You now have three styles to choose from:
Original - two layers of merino wool.
Extra - has a layer of felted merino wool for greater protection.
Softline - This style is similar to the original but processed a bit more so it is even softer and less expensive!

Special Features: This company has brought to the market a whole new concept that will revolutionize the breastfeeding field! These new bra pads are not like any others on the market as the new technology in them is another innovation! The innermost soft net liner (next to the skin) wicks away and transfers breastmilk moisture to a special, patented membrane. This unique membrane assists an evaporation process using the breastfeeding mom's natural body heat to evaporate the breastmilk moisture, protecting her clothes from leaks. The highly breathable technology allows for her skin to feel dry and comfortable all day! ps: Even the name goes along with the purpose of the bra pad! The dictionary meaning of ev*a*nesce (pronounced ev-n-s) as a verb means "to dissipate or disappear like vapor".

Technology - more scientific detail
The inner most liner is engineered to allow increased comfort in wear. The garment will transfer milk moisture from your skin to the outside of the fabric where it disperses into the special membrane region of the cup. (Will not be allowed back in)
The unique membrane facilitates a further evaporation process using your natural body heat. The milk moisture evaporates rapidly due to the constant dispersion of moisture through the 2 layers. Our Waterproof breathable membrane prevents milk from reaching your outer garments. You should be able to spend a normal day or evening with a comfortable dry feeling and no embarrassing leaks to your outer garments.
Inner lining - added advantages and features:
Our unique interlining gives increased comfort during wear because the Evanesse will absorb( wicking) milk moisture much more readily. It is easier to remove oily combination by washing- The fats and proteins of the mother’s milk will not clog the flow of milk, which is more hygienic. Reduce clinging effect to the breast. The wicking system increases evaporation through the membrane region. Very soft against the nipple.
Membrane Region - added advantages and features:
A special waterproof & breathable membrane is inserted into the layers of the Evanesse . The combination of the inner lining and the membrane work to evaporate milk moisture and keep you dry.
It is the hydrophilic (Affinity for water) or hygroscopic (inherent ability to absorb moisture) nature of our membrane technology that allows milk moisture to pass through it by the absorbtion-diffusion-desorption process.
This conveyance of milk moisture from the inside to the outside of the membrane ensures that the fabric is waterproof on the outside but breathable in the inside, guaranteed to keep mums fresh and dry.
The vapour transmission rate on a breathable film reaches approximately 2,500 g/m(2.5 litre/m2) during a 24 hour period , at room temperature 21°c milk temperature 30°c and 60% relative room humidity.
The Evanesse’s technology is a full liquid barrier, while allowing milk moisture transfer because of the high breath ability and permeability.
The high degree of comfort is due to quick evaporation. (moisture Management.)

LilyPadz are made from a unique silicone material that is breathable, flexible, and invisible under clothing. Also, as a convenience for larger breasted women they come in larger sizes as well. It simply seals off the nipple and when the milk can not escape it will retreat back up the ducts and nothing is wasted either! If applied while skin is dry, you can even wear them swimming! LilyWash is a liquid cleanser specifically formulated to clean the tacky surface of LilyPadz. LilyWipes is a single use cleaning pad that conveniently cleans the surface of LilyPadz when away from home or on the go. LilyPadz Starter Kit includes both LilyWash and LilyWipes. LilyPadz two pair pack offers a cost savings to the consumer who wants the convenience of having two pair of LilyPadz.
Care Instructions: Simply wash with mild soap and water, rinse, shake and thoroughly dry before reapplying. Because they contain no adhesives, the self-stick lining is renewed each time they are washed, so one pair can last for months. Lilypadz can even be sterilized occasionally by placing them in boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
These pads are slightly countoured to fit the shape of the breast curve. The 100% cotton feels wonderful next to the skin! Keep in mind that these do not contain a moisture barrier layer so they are best for light to medium leakers or can be used as a doubler inside another one. The package contains 4 pads with one mesh laundry bag so they won't get lost in the wash!
These pads come individually wrapped so they are easy to tuck in your bag. The moisture absorbing material draws the wetness away from the skin and will retain a tremendous amount for those heavy leakers! Contouring pleats help with the shaping and they even have a self-adhesive tape to keep the pad in place. You have the choice of 30 count or 60 count size.
Milk Diaper pads are made from 100% untreated cottons (birdseye and diapers flannel) that are pre-shrunk twice before they are cut and sewn. The patented dart design gives the pad a gentle contour. These important features leave you with smooth fitting pads that don't bunch and twist after washing! This pad is available in plain white (#R001 at $3.12 per pair); in 5-layer white (#5001 at $3.56 per pair); in natural "green" cotton (#N001 at $3.56 per pair), in 5-layer natural “green” (#N5001 for natural at $4.00 a pair); in black front (#B001 at $3.60 per pair); white cotton with white lace cover (#W001 at $3.56 per pair); or teacream lace cover (#T001 at $3.56 per pair).
For heavy leakers, a full night's protection, or when you want to be extra confident, get the style with MOISTURE GUARD (#X001 at 4.40 per pair). It includes a 5-layer cotton pad with a breathable porous laminate layer and lace front.
For heavier leaking – or when you want to stay with 100% cotton – double the pads with a plain pad inside. They stay together and in place by the simple friction of the cotton weave. Replacing the inside one when damp will usually prevent leaking through.
All styles are priced per pair so you can buy in bulk and not have to pay extra for packaging. Change the number in the quantity field to how many pairs you want, choose the style in the pull down menu and then press the order button.
Don't forget a carry case - it has two pockets to keep your wet and dry ones separate.
