Wee Expressions Nursing Pad Review and Giveaway

March 10th, 2011
5:02 pm


Etsy is a great marketplace to support Work At Home Moms. One such mom is Lauren, who runs Wee Expressions. She carries fitted cloth diapers, burp cloths, fleece diaper covers, cloth wipes, bibs and leg warmers. Lauren also has nursing pads (read on for a review) and mama cloth. She uses all her products on herself and her kids ensuring that everything she makes gets a thorough and proper testing.

Custom mama pads with replaceable washable soakers
Mama cloth with replaceable soakers.

The Review:

Lauren contacted me with the opportunity to review her nursing pads. She sent me three pairs to review. After I sent them through the wash, I put them to work.


She has some great fabrics to pick from.

Lauren's nursing pads are approximately 4 inches in diameter. They have a flannel lining that goes against the skin and an absorbent core with a white PUL backing. There is bias tape around the edge of the pad. Since the bias tape is cotton, you could possibly experience some wicking from the absorbent part of the pad. I don't know if the bias tape is completely necessary. A double stitch on the inside around the pad would give it a sleeker look. I really like that these have PUL. I have a very heavy milk flow and let down and the PUL saved me from having to change my shirt because of leaks.

The flannel keeps nice and soft, even after many washes. I did find that my nipple sometimes got stuck to the inside of the pad when my let down dried. Peeling the pad off of my nipple was not fun but I found that if you express a little milk, it moistened the pad and my nipple came right off. Now, this might not happen to you. I have really large nipples (TMI? Sorry).

I'd recommend washing these in a lingerie bag to keep them together so you aren't searching for them and to keep them in good shape.

Cost: $2.85 per pair. You can get a 3 pack for $8.00 or a 7 pack for $17.95. Click here to buy.

I'd like to thank Lauren and Wee Expressions for working with me!
