Maternity & Nursing: Posh Pads

*This was originally posted on A Kindred Spirit's Thoughts*




*Look for new extra entries opportunities for the Posh Pads giveaway at the end of this post*

Today I have an AWESOME guest review on Posh Pads by Margaret from Creative Madness:

In case you missed the memo, I am currently 29 weeks pregnant, with about 11 weeks to go. I am so eager to meet my little girl, but goodness me do I even know my body anymore? Some days I sincerely wonder...

When, my Mama blogging buddy Lindsey from A Kindred Spirit's Thoughts asked me if I would do a guest review for her Bamboo for Baby event, I thought sure, that would be great, one less thing for me to buy, yet to enjoy. To find out even more about Posh Pads, see Lindsey's original Posh Pads Giveaway
post (giveaway ends June 5, so hurry and get your entries in before then!).


So, in the mail I received my Posh Pads.
Absolutely beautiful was the first thought I had! The second was aren't these a little large? Well, I read the instructions and washed before wearing and when they came out of the wash, they were not really smaller. Meaning I would not say they shrunk, but they were tighter and perfect feeling. I inserted them into the bra (also, bamboo -- I'll get to that in another post). And my goodness! They are mine and you cannot have them!!

It was probably around preggo week 17 when I first realized the necessity of nursing pads, however it was not until week 28 that I realized the necessity of sleeping with them as well. I had obtained some disposables that are much like a plastic diaper for boobs as well as some reusable from a major brand name. They are itchy and I am always readjusting and just taking them out half way through the day when I just cannot take it anymore.

Victorian Blu

Now, for the Posh Pads. My pair was the Victorian Blu and my oh my. I put them in first thing in the morning and completely forget that they are even there! They are so pretty that when I do see them during a shirt change or something at any time, they make me smile in a ridiculous giggly girl sort of way. Never once did I have to readjust and I would not dream of taking them out during the day.


Main thoughts:
comfy! pretty! soft! very pleasantly hide the forever hardened nipples of pregnancy... and I could rave more and more...

Frankly, when I get an item for review, they are usually pretty nice. They often lead me to encourage others to go buy one. This is the first time, where less than a week after owning, I emailed up the owners with a desperate plea of GIVE ME MORE!!!! So yes, Monday of this week I put in my own order for 7 more pairs! And I'm checking the mailbox daily with impatience, and no they did not arrive today... *sigh* Maybe tomorrow!!




Note from Lindsey: Thanks, Margaret! And SMART move buying 7 more pairs - you need nursing pads even more often (amazingly enough) after the baby is born. Lucky lucky! :-)

I've helped several of my sister-in-laws make these. As simple as it is, it's very monotonous...not fun! But they all say they are a must for moms with babies.

Well I figure, these from Posh Pads are made with organic and bamboo fabrics. By the time that I purchase the fabric and make myself some... one it would all be the same fabric, where here I'm buying various patterns, and two would take forever in a monotonous sense as you said. It's easier and definitely worth the money to purchase them.

And they are fabulous!
