Questions? Please message me! I used these nursing pads myself through three of my children and I should be able to answer most of your questions about the pads and breastfeeding in general.
Practical stuff: Usage will depend on your leakage. Early in the nursing relationship, most mothers leak a lot. You'll find you will have to change your nursing pads a couple times a day. As the nursing relationship progresses, many mothers find they can easily go through the daytime using only one set of pads, and changing them out at bedtime.
There’s a common misperception that PUL creates a dark, wet, germ-breeding ground, and that fleece does not. I make pads with both, and *both* will breed bacteria.
Fleece is slightly more breathable, and as such, some moisture in your pad will evaporate into the air, keeping you drier - at least in theory. However, in reality, most of the moisture will stay right in the pad until it is removed. The breast prevents much evaporation on one side, and clothing on the other.
The best thing you can do to prevent infections and thrush is to change your pads as often as necessary:
If your pad is soaked, you need to change it. If you have been wearing the same pad for more than 10-12 hours, you need to change it, whether you have a fleece backing or a PUL backing. Why? It is better to change your pads frequently rather than find a pad that will hold that liquid all day against your skin. Changing your pads often will help prevent infections and thrush, which thrive in moisture.
Care: Place in lingerie bag, machine wash cool, tumble dry low.
All items come from a smoke-free, cat-friendly home. (The cats are not allowed near my fabrics and notions!)
