Breastfeeding (nursing) your baby can be a good experience for both the mother and the baby. It takes time and practice to get comfortable with breastfeeding and get the hang of it, this can happen faster for some women than others. Breastfeeding does not happen for everyone and can take a physical and mental toll on the body. However you choose to feed, this should be the best way for you and your baby.
The truth is, it can be messy, but it's completely normal. Breasts that leak, drip or even spray milk in the weeks (and sometimes even months) after delivery are a common and normal postpartum symptom. A baby's cry…. even if it's not your bubba might trigger a squirt. You might spring a leak in the shower, in your sleep or when you're thinking or talking about your baby. You may also leak if you're running a little late for a feeding, and you can drip from one breast or both.
There's just no telling when or where you might leak, so keep that in mind as you plan your day — and your outfit.
Our super absorbent Bamboo & Cotton breast pads are a great sustainable choice for breastfeeding mums. They are reliable nursing pads ready to absorb released milk preventing leaks. They are soft & comfortable bamboo fibre towel with antibacterial benefits with strong absorption.
Each pack of Myrtle & Maude breast pads contains 6 reusable & re-washable breast pads and a convenient drawstring travel bag.
Sometimes, breast milk may leak unexpectedly from your nipples.
Wearing breast pads will stop your clothes becoming wet with breast milk. Remember to change them frequently to prevent an infection.
Expressing some milk may also help. Only express enough to feel comfortable, as you do not want to over stimulate your supply.
If your baby has not fed recently, you could offer them a feed as breastfeeding is also about you being comfortable.
