When I was breastfeeding, I went through boxes and boxes of expensive disposable nursing pads. Not so cool. Learn from my mistake…make your own reusable nursing pads!
You’ll find a great tutorial over at I Sew, Do You.
- For absorbency: flannel – you can also use terry cloth, even microfiber towels if you want.
- For backing (water-proof barrier), fleece. You can also use 100% wool, felted.
- For topping (layer facing skin): flannel, knit, or cotton woven, your choice. Even flannel for another absorbent layer.
- Sewing machine
- Something round to use as a pattern – like a large cup.
Skill Level: Beginner.
