Breastfeeding: how to make washable nursing pads

Are you breastfeeding and are you looking for an alternative solution to disposable cups? Well, today we talk about how to make washable nursing pads.

In my breastfeeding experience (I did it for more than twelve months) one of the things that bothered me the most was having to throw away so many nursing pads. Beyond the fact that I’ve always thought it was a lot of avoidable waste, the feeling I had was just that of throwing money in the trash.

It was a short step from this to the idea of ​​self-production of washable cups : not just a matter of savings (which is truly remarkable in any case), but a practical, ecological choice with significant benefits for the skin.

Creating lots of washable and do-it-yourself breast pads is really quick and easy.
If you have time, want to save money and you can get by with a needle and thread, you can make them yourself by cutting out simple fabric disks. You can make them from linen or cotton handkerchiefs that you no longer use, or you can buy a few small cuts of suitable fabric. For example, there are all types on the market, including with natural, bio and stay dry fibers.

To make your own washable nursing pads you need:

  • Tissue
  • Filo
  • Pins
