Wanna know the crappy #momlife secret I was not prepared for? LEAKY BOOBS! When discussing how magical breastfeeding can be, everyone seems to have glossed over the fact that you need to stuff unflattering materials down your shirt to avoid looking like you leaned, boobs first, into a waterfall. So I’m here to spill the beans and suggest you check out our super flattering, comfortable and absorbent breast pads. Your tatas, clothing, and other earthly possessions will thank you.

So, I’m going to tell you something that may shock you. Are you ready?

Occasionally, my husband says things that are really silly.

Okay, maybe that isn’t that shocking. But what is shocking is just HOW silly some of the things that he says can be.

Let me give you an example.

Recently, while I was feeding our little one, he hit me with this:

Now, I will admit, at first I didn’t see this for the ridiculous statement that it was. In fact, I was a little bit inclined to agree with him.

I am not proud of it but there have been a few nights while breastfeeding, I would start glaring at my blissfully sleeping husband and his stupid, useless nipples. All this would happen when the clock read some ungodly time that no human should ever be conscious for. Ever.

Cuz, let’s face it, breastfeeding is HARD. WORK.

Despite this, however, I came to my senses and realized how boneheaded what my husband had suggested really was.

I know that my husband was trying to be supportive with his statement. At least I hope he was.

It is not lost on him how draining AND rewarding breastfeeding is. I know that he is only looking for ways to take some of the load off and bond with our baby.

But breastfeeding is a freaking super power that belongs firmly in the hands of mommas alone.

Men, we love you, but you have lots of other superpowers. You can pee, anywhere you want, while standing up. Enough said.

Mommas have the power of creating life, though, so it only makes sense that we also have the power to sustain that itty bitty life.

And what a power it is.

The things that breast milk can and does do for your baby are nothing short of magical, miraculous, witchcraft.

Like, seriously. It changes based on your babies needs. It can keep them from getting sick. It can heal infections.

Straight. Up. Magic.

But like most magic, breastfeeding comes at a price. And most of the time that price is making Momma feel like she’s lost her mojo.

Between late night feedings, breast pumps, and sore/cracked/dry nips, breasfeeding can make even the most dedicated mom feel less like this:

And more like this:

Not to mention the leaking.

I’m not sure why women were designed so that their liquid gold would gush forth every time someone looks at them the wrong way, or a baby thinkings about crying within a 150 km radius.

Heaven forbid your baby looks at you or radiates that new baby smell…

Fortunately, Lil Helper has cooked up an awesome product to help you rock your superpower, without feeling like Niagra Falls.

Constructed to be luxurious, functional, and oh-so-comfy, our new Breast Pads will help you tame your terrific tatas, cuz Supermom ain’t got time for no leaks.

2 Pairs: Each pack contains 2 pairs of pads. That works out to 4 in total, for those of you who feel like your little one must be sucking out brain cells along with that magical milk at each feeding. I feel you. I counted on my fingers twice to make sure I got these numbers right.

3 Compact Layers: Each pad is made from three action packed layers. Waterproof PUL (to keep your shirts, sheets, significant other protected from your “fountains of youth”) + Absorbent Bamboo Terry (to suck in and hold all the leaky goodness) + Wicking Bamboo Bamboo Poly Mesh (to keep you feeling fresh and dry as a daisy on a summer’s day).

Low Profile: There may be a lot going on in those layers, but we have worked to keep them slim and lo-pro. Each pad conforms to your breasts and is invisible from the outside. Because visible seams or weird points are so last season.

Non-Stick: There are a lot of things in life that can add up to unpleasant things. Blueberries + baby’s digestive system= super gross blue poop, for example. One that breastfeeding mamas are all to aware of is moisture + warmth= a sticky mess. A lot of breast pads are a particularly bad at leading to this sticky situation, which is no fun for you or your nips. With Lil Helper breast pads you don’t need to worry. We’ve created a stay dry combination, which means that your baby will be the only sticky nightmare you need to worry about dealing with.

Soft Construction: So much of the thought behind this design went into making you (and “the twins”) feel as cozy and pampered as possible. The wicking bamboo mesh is gentle to the skin and leaves you feeling dry.

Durable: Constructed like a truck, soft as a feather. We know you don’t have time for crappy products that aren’t going to stand the test of time, so we made these babies to last. Like survive the apocalypse last. For real. All that will be left is cockroaches, Cher, and these breast pads.

As moms we do anything and everything to give our kids the best and most amazing start in life. Even when it is hard or means making sacrifices.

Because that is what superheroes do. They sacrifice themselves for the greater good.

Fortunately you don’t need to sacrifice your comfort or your favourite blouse, because Lil Helper Breast Pads have you (and your lady lumps) covered.

    these are wonderful!

    Everything from the shape to the feel against the skin to the absorption is perfect. I really loved these. They’re so smooth and you can’t see any seams through your shirt. I would recommend these to anyone breastfeeding!

    I started using these last week and have been very satisfied. I was tired of waking up and having to change my clothes, sheets, blankets, babies clothes. One pair last me all night, my baby nurses through the night and I was like a fountain when I let down. Dry mornings are happy mornings.

    About me:
    *Exclusive breastfeeder
    *On baby #3
    *2 1/2 month old boobie addict
    *Huge leaker (like, I lay out bath towels on my bed every night…)
    *Ridiculously huge boobs due to BFing
    *Frequent applier of nipple creams
    *Enjoys leaving the house without leaking everywhere/looking like I have maxi-pads in my bra
    *Fan of reusable products

    So, in all honesty, I was given two pairs free to test by Lil Helper. However, I’m not afraid to tell them when their stuff sucks. Thankfully, this did not suck.

    The shape of these pads makes them stand out against a lot of commercial reusable breastpads that I have personally used. They are contoured in a way that kind of snuggles you. This, combined with the white PUL exterior make them nearly invisible in my bra (and waterproof!). Like, I seriously was wearing a thin t-shirt and could not tell at all. This is awesome.

    Pricing seems on par for what I’ve seen at certain big-box stores for their products.

    I’m a big fan of the layer against your skin-it’s super soft. It also wicks away moisture-maybe a little too well. After wearing, I honestly couldn’t tell if I had leaked and it had absorbed anything or not by touch (I could tell because I leak a TON and so it weighed a bit more). This is nice because I didn’t have the painful/awkward dried-milk-acting-as-glue-and-sticking-to-my-nipple-causing-me-pain issue.

    My only complaint isn’t a complaint, but more of a suggestion… I wish they were a little bigger for overnights because I leak a TON and my baby will go a few hours without eating at night. I usually can soak a spot in a bath towel and even my sheets-however, after all night I only got a little on my top. Perhaps if I had swapped when I woke up in the middle of the night, I would have been fine though (bamboo holds a LOT in my experience with cloth diapers).

    Washing: I washed with diaper laundry and with regular clothes-I didn’t do anything special. I don’t use softeners or anything harsh with regular laundry for what it’s worth. I did use two different “natural” nipple creams and they both washed out fine without any special effort. My advice is to follow the universal “diaper protocol” and don’t ever use anything with petroleum products, and it should wash out just fine.

    I love these. I definitely want to purchase some more for myself, and some currently-pregnant friends in the near-future.

    The. BEST. Breastpads!

    I was so excited when Lil Helper announced breastpads! I’ve been exclusively using their diapers for 2.5 years and 2 kids now and they are amazing. I knew the breastpads would be great and they didn’t disappoint! They are lightweight, don’t show through and so breathable! You don’t get that soggy gross milk saturated feeling you get with bamboo (or maybe that’s just me). I love these breastpads I just worked out in high humidity and they still felt dry after! I have yet to have a leak show through.

    These breast pads are perfect. They are thin, stay put and more importantly don’t show.

  • What are the breast pads made of?

    These breast pads are what dreams are made of! Absorbent, reusable and they DON'T stick your milk covered nipples; if you know what that’s like then you know how much of a win this is. But..... you may be wondering what these are made of? They are comprised of 3 layers: 

    1) The dark wicking, antimicrobial stay dry layer that goes against the breast! Its breathable, cool and like I said before DOESN'T stick! 

    2) The plush bamboo terry absorbent layer in the middle. The overnight pads have extra bamboo terry to increase absorbency. 

    3) The waterproof PUL backing with gorgeous prints.

  • How do I wash my breast pads?

    Whomp Whomp... Laundry time. Don't sweat it, we have a quick and easy routine for washing your breast pads. If you cloth diaper you can simply throw them in and wash using your Lil Helper approved wash routine (link to was routine). If you are washing them with your diapers please remember to rinse off any nipple cream that may be present prior to washing. 

    Don't use cloth diapers? No worries. You can wash them with your regular laundry. However, we do recommend throwing them into a mesh garment bag to protect them in your washer. Please note: do not wash using hot water or dry on high heat.

  • How many breast pads do I need?

    Have you decided to invest in reusable breast pads but are unsure how many you need? We got you!  To start out we would say one breast pad deal (add link) and 2 packs of overnight liners. That would be 8 pairs of breast pads and 4 pairs of overnight pads. You may find you need less or more depending on how often you wash or how heavy you leak. However, this is a great starter stash.

  • What makes Lil Helper Breast Pads different?

    Our unique combo of super absorbent bamboo, PUL backing and especially the bamboo stay dry liner (BDSL). All of which work to prevent any dreaded crunchiness and  prevent the pad from sticking to nipple. That was the big seller for all of us!

    "I ordered these after a lot of research and watching the video explaining the difference between the overnight ones vs these ones. I ordered both these and the overnight ones and they are great! They are comfortable and nice and discrete under clothes. They wash well and keep their shape!"

    "These are incredibly thin and hold a lot more leaking than expected! They might seem a bit pricey, but reusable nursing pads are so much nicer to use and better for the planet. They are pretty discreet, especially with the nursing bras that have less padding. I’ve had other brands of nursing pads fill up and leak out during the day if I’m out without the baby, but these nursing pads have been successful at saving my shirts!"

    "I never thought I'd find a breast pad that wouldn't show through my shirt and still absorb for a full day (I have a high milk flow) but not only do these do that, they are also super comfortable! These are amazing!!"

    "Love these!! I am currently nursing my 3rd baby! After trying many brands of reusable breast pads I eventually gave up and bought disposable. Nothing could keep up with my oversupply and strong let down. I won a few of these breast pads in a giveaway and fell in love!! I ordered more right away. These are amazing!! They hold so much liquid, absorb so quickly. They are discrete, soft, and stay so dry against the skin. This is all I use now! I would highly recommend!! "

    "I’ve tried a few different reuseable breast pads and these are by far the best! The contour helps them stay in place and I love how thin they are, yet absorbant at the same time! They are also soft and not irritating to the skin. Highly recommend them!"

    "I used these pads while transitioning to weaning my daughter and they are awesome! They stay dry, are absorbent, and don't feel too warm in this hot weather! They're comfortable, and conform perfectly, and wash well - a lifesaver for the breastfeeding momma. And so much more affordable than buying disposables! "

    "I have used breast pads off and on for the past 4 years with two kids. I've had disposables (which are awful!!!), and reusable bamboo, name brands, cheap ones I've found online and finally lil helper ones. I love the fact that these don't stick, don't smell, and don't show through my shirts. I've worn nursing bras and t-shirts and hate leaks and breast pad outlines and since lil helper, I've has neither. Had I not watched the lil helper video, I think I would have worn these backwards. The dark side in allows for no colour to sleep through. I'm excited as I've just shared one pair with a friend with a new baby. I can't wait to hear if she loves then as much as I do!"
