Stop The Leakage

Sunday evening we had a korean bbq / sushi dinner at my parents place for my brother who is turning 25 today. Happy Birthday Little Bro. My father was out in the backyard bbq’ing it up when his next door neighbour came out and we all got a talking … I was probably out there for no more than a few minutes when I went back in to check up on little Nathan. As I walked inside, I went into the powder room to wash my hands and in the bathroom mirror I notice something strange. I take a closer look and realize I had totally leaked through my shirt and there was a big wet stain on my right breast! I must have been talking to my parents neighbour, whom I should mention is a man, leaking breast milk!


Leaking in the privacy of my own home is one thing, but leaking in public or in front of family and friends is another thing. I was so embarassed, I don’t think I can ever look at him the same again and I’m sure the same goes for him. How uncomfortable he must have been talking to me as a stain started to appear on my boob! Ahhhh…..!

I use the breast pads, but my milk flow is so heavy I just leak right through them. So I’ve been looking for a leak proof bra when I came across these cute Lily Padz.

Invented by a mother of three, LilyPadz are these ultra-thin, breathable, and latex-free silicone rubber nursing pads that act like a second skin. In addition, they’re flexible, breathable, and nearly invisible under clothing. They protect the nipple from excess moisture, rubbing and sticking as is commonly experienced with cotton pads.

Instead of absorbing milk leakage, they actually prevent the milk from leaking in the first place. Recommended by the leading Breastfeeding specialist, each pack contains a pair of two Lilypadz that can be washed and re-used. They work by moulding themselves to your breast, so comfortable & invisible you wouldn’t even know you were wearing them – perfect for under eveningwear and for swimming too! They’re ultra-thin, flexible, breathable and soft – much better than traditional, bulky breastpads!

I’m planning on purchasing a few of these pads. Each pad is suppose to last up to 2 months given proper care. Beats paying almost hundreds of dollars on leakproof nursing bras which was my second choice before I came across these beauties.

  1. Breast pads no matter how thin are still bulky in the bra. Let me know how you get on with the Lilly pads…..
