Are you a breastfeeding mother? Did you just have a precious bundle of joy that makes your boobs leak milk everywhere?! I am overwhelming HaPpY to offer you the chance to win a free pair of reusable nursing pads to help you get through this
dreadful wonderful part of motherhood! Trust me, I know how you feel; I’ve been breastfeeding for 13 months straight!
Disposable nursing pads are constructed of the same exact chemicals that are found in disposable diapers. If you have a disposable pad handy, just rip it open and you’ll see tiny crystals, known as super absorbent polymers. (I accidentally ran a disposable diaper through the washer and the picture below shows what I found!) These crystals turn into a gel, which causes it to retain liquid. If you visit the disposable pad manufacturer’s website, it most likely states that this gel is hazardous and to call the Poison Control Center if ingested. Doesn’t sound like a healthy place for baby to be feeding, does it? Not to mention that when you’re done with it, it just gets tossed into the trash, and we definitely don’t need to be adding anything unnecessary to our landfills.
During the Make it Green in 2015 campaign, we’ve discussed ways to help protect the environment. An easy thing to do when it comes to protection from leaking milk everywhere is to use reusable nursing pads.
