Lansinoh Nursing Pads Product Review:

BurritoBuzz.com received some amazing product from Lansinoh, and we enlisted some loyal followers to review with us! The nursing pads were a hit! We knew that I love them, but we wanted our other bloggers and some mommies to give their opinion also!DNP_100_ct_Pack_540_405_c1

Pros: They have two adhesive strips, some pads only have 1 or none. Many of our mommies loved this feature, saying that it helped in keeping them in place over other brands.

The material of these pads are soft and quilted, making them very comfortable

“These pads are thin but are surprisingly absorbent and hold a good amount of leaked milk while still remaining dry to the touch.” Because they remain dry to the touch it prevents you from getting chapped from being wet.

Each pad is wrapped individually. Now, some of our mommies didn’t like that, because ease of use (not being able to get to them as quickly and creating more trash), but most liked it! It made it convenient to only change one pad at a time without contaminating a pad you might not be using at the time.

These are disposable pads, so no clean up or making sure you have clean ones ready to go!

Cons: These are disposable pads, therefore not making them very earth/ budget friendly, but if you are a mom like me the reusable ones don’t even begin to cut it when it comes to absorbency.

One mom said “They get itchy sometimes, and bunch up in your bra after moving cups down for feeding”, so they definitely are not perfect!

Most of the moms wanted them not to be individually wrapped, but none said they would never buy them again. In fact most moms said this was their favorite brand of disposable pad! These are a must- buy, and a must- add to your baby registry!

Breastfeeding Essentials

images Getting ready to have a baby? Hoping to be able to nurse? Just like bottle feeding it comes with some things that are pretty helpful and important! I have compiled a list of my favorite products, and what I use daily while nursing. Some moms might need more, some might need less, but I really hope this list helps you gather up some products, and be ready for that LO!

Nursing Chair/ Comfy place to sit! – I have a pillow that follows me around the house if I’m not sitting in my glider.

Water and healthy snacks readily available– You burn tons of calories nursing, and you have to stay nourished to be able to nourish your LO. ***This is an area where I have DH help. He usually runs and fills up my water and grabs me a little snack***

Breastfeeding pillow– There are a few brands out there, but my favorite is the Comfort and Harmony Mombo Nursing pillow. It’s a 2 sided firm/soft pillow. One side is soft for the baby to lounge on, and the other side is firm providing great support for nursing. It’s also a pretty snug pillow, meaning it keeps its shape and stays snug around you. The Mombo is closed more than most pillows, so I have found that the baby sits in it nicer. I purchased the one with the vibrating insert to help keep little ones happy. The price on the Mombo is about the same as other pillows too (around $35). It’s all about preference and comfort so you can relax and feed baby.

Nursing pads– See my review for more details, but Lansinoh pads are the best! When you breastfeed you tend to leak a little in between feedings, and when you let down while nursing. You have to have something in your bra to catch that milk or you will be drenched.

Nursing bra– Nursing bra’s are made with a little clip on the top so you can pull down the front of the bra and feed. I have multiple, but my favorite is the sports bra style. I feel like they keep everything in place the best, and I never feel like I’m going to have a slip and leak. I get mine from Motherhood and they are usually around $30, but you can catch sales and coupons to get them a little cheaper.

Feeding cover– Not all moms feel comfortable just feeding without something covering them a little. You can buy feeding covers from most stores that carry baby items, but I just made my own. I will blog a tutorial about that in the near future so you all have access to that easy little project! Look for nursing infinity scarf.

Nipple cream– Lanolin is a MUST! Especially when just starting out. It’s safe for baby, and makes you feel so much better so quick! I usually purchase Lansinoh brand, because it goes on the nicest. Medela and Earth Mama Angel Baby make a nice one also.

Cooling compress– when you are starting out your nipples get a little chapped and sore, these help with the tenderness and give you a little break from feeling so sore.

Pump– If you are going back to work or just want to be able to pump once a day so that your DH or family can feed LO you have to have a pump. In most cases your insurance will cover it FULLY! So be sure to ask about getting it covered. They are pricey, but you get what you pay for! I have the Medela Pump In Style Advance and I don’t think I could go without it! ** If you are going to pump regularly I also recommend a pumping bra. It lets you go hands free, so you can work or do what you need to and pump at the same time.

Milk storage bags – Milk is only good in the fridge for a week, so if you know you aren’t going to use it the best thing to do is freeze it. I buy Up and Up brand from Target.

There are tons of other little things to help with nursing, if you are having a hard time, but this is the main list of things you will need as soon as baby arrives.

Hope it helps ladies! Nurse on!

Product Review: Lansinoh Nursing Pads

DNP_100_ct_Pack_540_405_c1

As a nursing mom nursing pads are a must for most mommas! I know moms who can go without pads, and or bras and just free willy nilly feed their baby! HA!!! I wish I could. If you are a mom like me with machines for boobies then these guys are your BEST FRIEND!!!

Pros: Lansinoh pads keep you dry the longest, stay in place, and most importantly hold the most milk. For you new moms that are asking “What the heck is she talking about?” … just you wait!! Mwahahaha

Cons: The ONLY things that I can find wrong with these pads is that the wrappers attract static and stick to everything. I find them all over stuck to things when I thought it made it to the trash!

I have been breastfeeding for the better part of two years with having two babies under two. Lansinoh pads always come out above the rest! I have tried others and they just don’t cut it! You can get them for as low as $4.93 for a smaller box and the larger boxes generally are around $7.99. They are actually cheaper than even the store brands in most cases! So, WIN for your budget!

Great buy and a must add to any baby registry!
