  • What material are nursing slips made of?

All of our nursing slip sure are made of natural and elastic fibers. The natural fiber material is great for breathability and absorbency. 1st generation slips come in cotton or rayon blends, while, 2nd Generation come exclusively in 95% cotton/ 5% elastane or Lycra.

  • Tell me more about  absorbency?

Nursing Slips act as an extra absorbent layer to help prevent sweat stains, stinky bras, and light milk loss. Polyester materials are prone to stink, however, natural fibers, like cotton, beat the stench test!  Nursing Slips can absorb up to 1/8 cup each, and increase in absorbency the more you wash. To absorb more near the band, stretch as wide as possible, fold the extra bottom fabric under the band. To absorb milk leak, slightly pull the fabric down over the nipple. Some women prefer to fold it once or even lay it in half with more defined bras. DO NOT leave a wet or milky nursing slip against your skin for prolonged periods. ALWAYS wash after soiled with milk.

For BEST Results:
Pair with cotton or lace bra to prevent sweat stains/stink on clothing. Remove and replace when saturated. 

STAY AWAY from using with prolonged, high impact exercise when you WANT the moisture to wick through to the surface. 

  • Can nursing slips be used with nursing pads?

Yes. All slips have a large enough opening to accommodate areola access for use of nursing pads for extra absorbency. Again, do not leave a wet or milky nursing slip or pad against breast or in bra for prolonged periods of time and wash once soiled.

What are your graphic nursing pads made of?

    Our nursing pads consist of 2 or 3 layers of organic cotton fleece and 1 layer of organic cotton velour. They also contain a small satin ribbon, all purpose thread, and professionally applied polymer stretch graphics. We use high end quality fabrics and fibers to ensure the best care for sensitive Areola.
