{Review & Giveaway} Sandistitches Nursing Pads - US


Chayden is almost 5.  I nursed him for 22 months.  During that time, I purchased disposable nursing pads and they kept rising and falling out of my bra each time I moved.  I had a few times where I would be walking around with a pad sticking out of my shirt and almost touching my neck! Awesome laughs!. I got irritated though and heard about washable Nursing Pads.  I bought some from Target / Walmart.  Well, they leaked.  I went back to the slippery and sliding spoosie pads. =/  Well, now Colton is here.   We got those crappy spoosie pads again.  
And then, I met Sandi!  Sandi is so sweet!  Reading her bio, she LOVES to sew and be crafty!  Looking around her etsy shop, she has such a great selection of items including nursing pads, Tissues Cozies, Carseat strap covers, etc etc ... When you order from Sandi over at Sandistitches, you get such love in the mail!! Her cute little ribbons adds that final touch of "thank you".  
Sandi sent me three pairs of washable nursing pads to review.  I reviewed them for three weeks.  I washed them several times.  I wore the nursing pads for as long as I could.  I had no leaking through the pads!  



Materials:  The washable nursing pads are made from 2 layers of SUPER SOFT flannel with cotton batting in the middle for air flow purposes.  I have to say that the cotton batting was a little "er" for me because I had never thought of using cotton batting.  But because these nursing pads can hold up against my crazy leakage, they can last through a tornado!  The white flannel that goes against your skin is so soft!  You can hardly tell what so ever that you are wearing anything!  The nursing pads are so thin that you can't see them under a shirt.  

Super soft Flannel
 

Flannel that goes against your skin.  Very soft and comfortable!

Very thin and sucks in your milk like a monster!

Sewing work.


Wash n' Wear:  I still leak like crazy but I go a whole day with one pair of pads.  I don't have to switch them out at all.  The flannel sucks the moisture away and I feel dry all day.  When I wash them, I toss my Sandistitches washable nursing pads in with my regular wash.  You can lie them on a flat surface to air dry OR you can tumble dry on low.  I personally do not tumble dry on low.  I dried with my regular clothes and the Sandistitches nursing pads shrunk just a tiny bit from 4.5" in diameter to 4" in diameter.  But that does NOT affect the durability at all!  

A bit of shrinkage but no big deal at all!

Rating:  5/5  Super soft. Super cute prints. Sandi is awesome to work with.  Sandistiches has other awesome stuff at her etsy shop.  Etc etc ... I can go on forever! 

Price:  $4 for 2 pairs.  Thats so affordable & I LOVE it because anybody can afford these. Buy a box of disposable nursing pads for $10 that will last you a month vs. $4 for 2 pairs of Sandistitches nursing pads that will last you years!  Take your pick. I dare you ...

  148. This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep
    a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really loved
    what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
