Breastfeeding and Swimsuits

Summer time can be tricky for breastfeeding moms. The warmer weather means fewer layers and while cooler fabrics may sound like a like a great solution, it may put some breastfeeding moms in uncomfortable situations when using a traditional nursing pad.

Sadly nursing pads are not meant for swimming; you might get out of the pool with half of the water in your nursing pads! However, going sans nursing pads at the beach or pool can also be a bad idea. Thankfully, there is an easy solution to this common mama problem – LilyPadz®.

LilyPadz is the only nursing pad that can be worn in the water and is subtle enough not to show through bathing suits and tank tops. Yup, it's a waterproof nursing pad!

Unlike other nursing pads, LilyPadz don’t absorb. Instead they are made from 100% silicone and attach to the breast directly. That’s right, no bra required. The pads gently apply pressure to the nipple so that milk does not leak out or collect.

And while not worn here, they also look great under any swimsuit. We're especially fond of Bikini Mama's Pink Push Up Nursing Top Swimsuit, swimwear made especially for pregnant moms.

LilyPadz are very thin and clear, which means you can rock your bathing suit or strapless sundress without worry. When your little one gets hungry, all you have to do is peel off the LilyPadz, nurse, then reattach.

Since they can be reused for two months with proper care, you can be carefree all summer long. They are also small enough to throw into your beach bag or purse.

For most moms, a trip to the beach or pool means a whole lot of scurrying as you try to remember to pack all of the swimsuits, sunscreen, and snacks. LilyPadz are just one little thing to make life simpler and easier.

Bathing suit season is stressful enough for new mamas, so be sure to go into summer with these silicone nursing pads in hand. You can hang out by the pool in just a tank top or dive right into the water. These might even help you feel reconnected to your pre-breastfeeding days. Consider it your lactation vacation!
