As every mother knows just after having a baby and while breast feeding, you go through a whole load of breast pads. I found the disposable ones to be costly and rather quite uncomfortable and sweaty. Browsing through the net I stumbled on tutorials for washable breast pads and thought I’d give’em a whirl and found them to be great! Not sure how well they’d hold up in the early heavy leaking days, but they certainly worked a treat after the leaking had settled during breastfeeding, and during the weaning off time. After trawling through many tutes on the net, this is the way I went about making them, the easy way!
You want around 5 or 6 layers of flannel fabric, I used an old bed sheet that was starting to look a bit grubby (after washes obviously!) and faded, I used this technique of mine to reduce the Bobbles on the fabric. I saw no need for them to be made in the prettiest of fabrics as I am the only one to see them.
