CLOSED Posh Pads Review and Giveaway

Congratulations #34- Jaime! You will have 48 hours from when I email you to contact me with your info, else the wombat juggling begins!


As you may remember, I've had some genuinely leak-tastic moments lately, like the drenched shirt at the funeral and waking up in a puddle of milk. So, when Amy over at Makes Mom Happy ran her series of Breastfeeding related giveaways for World Breastfeeding Week, and I was blessed to win a set of Go-Green Baby Posh Pads*, I was sorta-kinda ecstatic. Since I've already been reviewing for your better knowledge some other eco-friendly nursing pads options, from day one I've been wearing these thinking about how they compare to the others, and what you, dear readers, would like to know about them.First of all, Posh Pads are made of organic bamboo with one side covered in a decorative print, very similar to the WeeEssentials nursing pads. Again, the pretty print goes in toward your breast so that you're not filling up your car at the petrol station and flashing your flower power to the world through your shirt.
Posh Pads are finished with a serged seam around the edges, so there's no worry about fraying, and they don't have the added bulk of a turned and stitched seam. In size, they offer the same coverage as the WeeEssentials and the La Leche League nursing pads I previously reviewed.


The one design difference I would point out, construction wise, is that the Posh Pads and the WeeEssentials offer a flat profile, while the La Leche League nursing pads have a contour.

I like the Posh Pads. I think they're quite comfortable, and I like the way the bamboo absorbs. I also like the sound of the word. "Bamboo." Say it with me. "Bamboo."
That said, flat profile pads tend to require more attention when you go to "reassemble" yourself, since the contour style pads tend to want to revert to their natural shape. If you're not overly boob-tastic, the reassembly shouldn't be quite so hard, but I tend to take a lot of reassembly, and it tends to take both hands to reposition the pads. That said, with the way that they absorb, and absorb without getting stinky, it's worth it, especially since no pad is re-position free.
I especially like all the fantastic prints the Posh Pads come in. I love the environmental benefit of using reusable organic products, but I admit it, some days, I'm a girly-girl, and I like having a cute floral print on the girls.
Silly? Perhaps. Delightful? Definitely.
Seriously though, I love any product which can make me feel even better about breastfeeding. Lets face it, there are some small sacrifices, like being able to wear tight fitted tops that don't have tata access points. I miss my girly-dresses that zip up the back, so anything that makes me feel pampered and secretly fashionable makes me smile.

What you need to know about Posh Pads.
Posh Pads are comfy, cute, and they work well. These cute little buggers do their job. They keep the milk in and my shirt dry. I don't know what else I can ask for in reusable nursing pads.
