Why the Experts Love Us
Check out what the pros are saying
“Belly Bandit especially helps in that important transition time, the fourth trimester.”
“When I was newly postpartum, I took comfort in being able to strap on a Belly Bandit wrap and feel the extra support around my midsection. It was great for my lower back, too.”
“[Belly Bandit leggings are] stretchy, breathable and comfy, and could help keep your muscles from aching too much when you’re caring for your new baby (or babies)!”
What are nursing pads?
Nursing pads are special inserts designed to fit into a bra to absorb leaking breast milk for women who are breastfeeding or pumping. There are two general types of nursing pads: disposable, which should be thrown away after using, and reusable, which are designed to be washed and reused. Belly Bandit’s Leakproof Nursing Pads are the latter, and can be washed and reused endlessly—making them a better choice for moms and the planet!
What are nursing pads used for?
Nursing pads are designed to catch leaking breast milk and prevent nursing and pumping moms from accidentally leaking through a bra (or worse, a shirt). They can be worn to catch those early leaks that may happen before you even deliver your baby, through the breastfeeding or pumping stages, and as your baby is transitioning to solid foods but you’re still producing some breast milk. The best nursing pads keep you dry in between feeding or pumping sessions by wicking moisture away from your body, which can help with nipple cracking and chafing.
How do you use nursing pads?
Wondering how to use nursing pads? You came to the right place! The best nursing pads are designed to fit easily and discreetly into any bra and stay in place—that’s one of the key benefits of Belly Bandit® leakproof nursing pads! All you have to do is slip them into your favorite bra, where they’ll absorb up to six teaspoons of liquid without creasing or puckering. Our breastfeeding pads are 50 percent larger than other reusable nursing pads, which has led many nursing and pumping mamas to consider them the best nursing pads out there!
Do you wear nursing pads all the time?
You can wear our leakproof nursing pads day and night to protect against breast milk leaks. They’re soft and comfortable against sensitive skin—perfect for 24/7 wear—and because they’re designed to help keep you dry around the clock, they can provide relief from nipple cracking and chafing. The technical fabric lining helps reduce odor, which is handy when you’re wearing them for longer periods of time. Plus, ours come in a multipack of two pairs so you can always have a fresh set of nursing pads while you’re doing laundry!
Do I really need a leakproof nursing pad?
In our opinion? Yes, you need leakproof nursing pads! Nursing pads keep you dry, comfortable, and confident, especially for breastfeeding and pumping mothers who might get caught off-guard by unexpected leaks. We’re especially proud of the fact that our nursing pads are washable and reusable, which makes them a better choice for the planet and a more cost-effective option than traditional disposable nursing pads. Still asking yourself, “What are nursing pads used for?” Maybe it’s time you try our new leakproof options and experience the powerful leak protection firsthand!
Can you wear nursing pads without a bra?
Our nursing pads are designed to slip inside a bra, so we don’t recommend trying to wear them without one.
Are nursing pads covered under FSA?
Good news! Belly Bandit® Leakproof Nursing Pads are eligible for FSA (Flexible Spending Account) and HSA (Health Savings Account) reimbursement.
What are nursing bras?
Nursing bras are a specific type of bra designed for women who are breastfeeding or pumping. They typically have either slide-over cups or clip-down cups, both of which allow for easier access. Nursing bras are often wire-free for comfort, and the best nursing bras are made from soft, breathable fabric and provide protection against breast milk leaks.
What are nursing bras used for?
Nursing bras can be worn before, during, and after pregnancy. While you’re pregnant and before you give birth, a comfortable nursing bra is perfect for sleeping and wearing under your regular clothes; a leakproof nursing bra can be helpful in the final stages of pregnancy, when some women begin producing small amounts of breast milk in anticipation of baby’s arrival. After you give birth and start nursing or pumping, a nursing bra will come in handy to keep you dry and comfortable, catch leaks between sessions, and give you some much-needed support as your breast milk comes in.
How do nursing bras work?
The best nursing bras work to keep you dry and comfortable 24/7—that’s especially true in the case of our Leakproof Nursing Bra, which features removable leakproof nursing pads and an absorbent, moisture-wicking lining. Those nursing bra benefits can help with nipple cracking and chafing, too! Our Leakproof Nursing Bra works via an easy, one-hand clip-down design, so you can get quick access to nurse or pump whenever you need. Another feature that makes ours one of the best nursing bras? The ultra-thin material that keeps you cool (because holding a baby can make you pretty warm!) and a wireless, seamless design that provides support without digging or pinching.
How many nursing bras do I need?
The right answer to this question will depend on a few things: your budget, how long you plan to nurse or pump, and how frequently you do laundry. We recommend trying a couple nursing bras in different styles so you can determine which one you like best—for example, slide-over cups versus clip-down cups—and what feels right for your needs. Once you decide the style you like best, it’s a good idea to have at least three or four nursing bras handy so you can change them if they get wet or soiled and not have to do laundry every day. (New moms do enough laundry as it is!) As for when to buy nursing bras, that will depend on your personal preferences. Some women like to buy them early in pregnancy because they’re more comfortable for sleeping, while others might want to wait a bit until they’ve outgrown their pre-pregnancy styles. You might also need to buy a few more nursing bras after you’ve given birth, since your breast size will fluctuate as your milk supply gets established.
What is the best nursing bra?
When it comes to the best nursing bra, we’re partial to our Leakproof Nursing Bra! The removable leakproof nursing pads are a game-changer, since they can absorb up to six teaspoons of liquid without creasing, bunching, or puckering. The ultra-thin material keeps you cool during feeding sessions and while you’re sleeping, and the wide straps and wireless design are super comfy.
