Washable, eco-friendly cloth nursing pads
Organic cotton fabric nursing pads are the perfect reusable alternative to absorb milk loss that occurs between feedings during breastfeeding.
Made of 100% organic cotton and handmade in Spain, these pads are the ideal option for you to live your motherhood in a more comfortable, ecological and sustainable way. In addition, our washable nursing pads are hypoallergenic and therefore a safe alternative for women with recurrent allergies or particularly sensitive skin.
What are nursing pads?
Washable nursing pads are small fabric pads that are placed between the nipple and the inside of the bra to absorb the small losses of breast milk that occur between feedings during breastfeeding.
This is especially true during the first weeks of breastfeeding or if the mother needs to interrupt breastfeeding or spend a lot of time away from home, for example to return to work.
For this reason, breast pads are a must-have to avoid staining underwear and even outerwear due to small leaks of milk between feedings.
In this video I tell you all about them:
Advantages of cloth nursing pads
Cloth breast pads have nothing to do with disposable ones. Just as we notice the difference between disposable menstrual products and reusable ones that are in contact with our vulva and vagina, cloth pads come into direct contact with our breasts and nipples, a highly sensitive area.
Here are the main advantages of choosing reusable fabric nursing pads:
Most non-reusable nursing pads are composed of toxic components such as plastic and other absorbent substances that affect the pH of the skin. They can cause dryness, irritation, allergies...
CYCLO nursing pads are handmade in Spain and made of 100% organic cotton and a thin layer of PUL to make them waterproof without compromising their breathability.
Like our cloth pads, these washable nursing pads are perfect for women with hypersensitivity and recurring allergies. They do not irritate particularly delicate breast skin and are completely hypoallergenic.
Environmentally friendly product
CYCLO's nursing pads are made only from organically sourced components. Both components are Oeko Tex certified and the organic cotton fabric is also GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) certified.
Composed of thin layers of organic cotton and a waterproof layer, they don't bulge, so no one will notice you're wearing them.
Reusable nursing pads
Washable nursing pads, beyond being much more respectful of your skin, help you live a waste-free life, also during maternity. This is a time when we are looking for solutions that are particularly simple and effective, but at the same time provide us with peace of mind, savings and well-being.
They are used as a disposable nursing pad, but after use you only have to put them in the washing machine with the rest of your light-colored clothes. With a useful life of between 3 and 5 years, they can be used throughout breastfeeding and saved for the future.
How much do they save?
With a lifespan of 3-5 years, cloth nursing pads save a lot of waste as well as money - do the math on how much money you'll avoid spending on buying disposable nursing pads every week!
Although it's personal, on average a mother can spend hundreds of disposable pads over the entire breastfeeding period. Cloth nursing pads can save you a lot of money.
Plus, because they last so long, you can use them over several breastfeedings if you use them as directed and care for them properly.
How to place the fabric breast pads?
Fabric nursing pads are placed between the breast skin (in the nipple area) and the cup or inner part of the bra after breastfeeding. They are suitable for normal and nursing bras, do not bulge and are comfortable and especially soft.
In the following image I explain how to put them on step by step:
How to wash fabric nursing pads?
Washing your cloth nursing pads is as easy as washing the rest of your clothes, in fact you can wash them along with the rest of your light clothes. Just keep a few things in mind:
- Wash your pads before their first use
- Wash at 40º maximum
- Do not use fabric softener or bleach, as it negatively affects the waterproofing of the fabric.
- Do not tumble dry
You can hand wash them with our 100% organic CYCLO textile soap.
Our recommendation is that if possible, you should always opt for an ecological detergent, as this will always be more respectful of the fabric, your skin and the environment.
For stubborn stains, you can use percarbonate or baking soda, but avoid using toxic and aggressive products such as bleach or chemical whiteners.
