So it seems my job here at Modern Day Moms is to talk about the stuff we don’t talk about (first DivaCups, now this)… so let’s get to it.
My name is Jessica and my boobs leak like geysers. *Whew* ok, now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, we can move forward. I’ve got a lot of milk. I mean, A LOT of milk. I have so much I use it for other things. I’ve cured pink eye and soothed eczema. Heck, I even made breast milk butter once (that’s for another post… haha). So when I first started nursing, I tried disposable breast pads (gave me mastitis), reusable cloth breast pads (smelled gross), and even folded up cloth diaper inserts (too bulky)! Then one day I came across these bad boys…
These things are tiny miracles, ladies. Made of skin-friendly silicone, these lily pad shaped pasties go on your nipples not to soak up milk, but to prevent them from ever leaking in the first place. You heard me. PREVENTION! Now I can vouch for these things holding up on 118 degree days, in the pool, during exercise, with no bra (really, NO BRA!!!) and through frequent feedings. Once they start losing their stickiness, you rinse them off, dry them off (I flopped mine around to air dry them) and pop them back on. THAT’S IT! You can use them time and time again, only needing to replace them entirely when they get really busted up. So take care of them and they’ll take care of you!
