Efficient pads, but caused allergic reaction
January 12, 2019
I purchased these for my wife because they were seemingly more hygienic and convenient for breastfeeding. The first few days were awesome. The pads soak up breastmilk without becoming overly wet and are easy to adjust and remove for nursing bras and tank tops. With that being said, after a couple days my wife started itching her chest before and after every feeding. Originally we thought she may have developed thrush, but it turns out that she was having an allergic reaction to the nursing pads. We tested this out by swapping them for the reusable cloth pads for a day to see if the rash/itchiness stopped. It disappeared completely with the reusable cloth nursing pads. We read other reviews about tiny little balls inside of these pads and decided to cut one open- sure enough several amounts of tiny balls came spilling out of the pad. I’m not sure what chemicals are being used in these, but they caused an itchy and burning rash around my wife’s breasts making it difficult for her to feed our baby. Overall, I do not recommend these Lansinoh nursing pads. Too bad we’re stuck with almost 200 of them!
