I nursed Kaelyn until she turned one. It was such a wonderful bonding experience and I was so happy that we were able to keep it up for that long. I would recommend any mom to give it a try, not only for the nutritional and health benefits, but also for the bonding experience it provides for you and your little one! I hope to nurse this second baby for the first year as well! Although it was a wonderful experience, one thing I remember is going through boxes and boxes of nursing pads in the beginning. They didn't work very well and it was quite a hassle.
That's why I was happy to learn more about LilyPadz! Lilypadz was born when a young mother of three got tired of the traditional, incovenient and expensive disposable nursing pads! I was sent a set of LilyPadz and was impressed with the quality and their unique no-leak design. They are thin silicone nursing pads that act like a second skin. They're flexible and breathable, and almost invisible! I think my favorite thing about LilyPadz is that they seem like they would be totally comfortable and no one would be able to tell you're wearing them. They're also reusable and can last for several months! I think that is great because it was a pain having to change nursing pads all the time and buy boxes at a time. I obviously haven't had the opportunity to use them yet, but look forward to being able to when our baby arrives in November!
Buy It: Lilypadz can be purchased at a number of online stores and retail locations...all conveniently found on their website. You can also order LilyPadz directly from LilyPadz for $22.95.
