Here at Peachymama we're proud to be clothing America's breastfeeding moms.
Our clothes are fashionable, yes, but they also serve a function. They work well with nursing bras – and as a few moms have noted - without them.
But breast pads are one of those items that we all seem to 'can't live without'. So, if you're debating between reusable and disposable then read on...
The role of a breast pad is to absorb any excess or leaking milk. This most often happens when a mom feels her milk “let down”, though it can also happen throughout various parts of the day. A breast pad will absorb that extra milk so that a mom is not left with an unbecoming wet mark on her breast.
There are so many reasons to choose a washable breast pad: they are better for the planet, reusable, and are a fantastic long term investment.
But there are many reasons why moms choose not to go this route. For one, they are expensive to purchase up front. Secondly, they are often bulkier than many of the disposable options which are available today. If you plan on wearing a soft shelled nursing bra, then choose your washable breast pads carefully (unless you plan on wearing nursing clothing like ours which offers an additional “smoothing” layer).
Disposable breast pads are immediately affordable and accessible. They come in a variety of different styles, sizes and quantities so that mums can easily choose what they want and need now without having to consider washing the pads. After all, doesn’t a mom have enough to think about?
But disposable breast pads also come with a set of disadvantages – notably, they are adding to our environmental waste. For that reason, it is always a good idea to source a supply of environmentally friendly breast pads. The cost of the pads also continue to accumulate over time, something which washable or reusable breast pads do not.
One common concern amongst breastfeeding moms is whether or not the breast pads will appear beneath their clothing. Our high quality fashions at Peachymama completely conceal not only the breast, but the breast pads which lie beneath.
