I have to say that when I came across LilyPadz I was quite intrigued. Basically they apply pressure to the nipple so you don't leak.
Leaks are embarrassing right? Sometimes even with a pad on you can still leak.
Well this creates a suction type barrier so you don't leak!
I was sent the Starter Kit which includes 1 LilyPadz set, 1 Lily Wash and 1 Lily Wipes (24ct)
Wipes on left, Pads in middle, Wash on right and an organza storage bag as well
The pads come stuck to a plastic insert.
Wipes (there are 24 total) and the wash
So I was very intrigued when I saw this product. HOWEVER, they didn't work for me.
You flip it inside out so the tacky side is facing you, then you push in the middle and push it against your nipple, basically push your nipple in, then take the edges and smooth them out over your skin. So now it's flipped right side out and your nipple is contained and pressed inside the pad.
When there's pressure on a nipple it won't leak. So in theory this should work. It worked for me all day, no problem. Even when I pumped the other side didn't leak (YAY), but when I woke up in the morning I noticed there was some milk in it. I sat up in bed and IT LEAKED EVERYWHERE. If I was wearing a cloth pad it wouldn't have been bad because it would've been absorbed. But with this the seal must have broke when I sat up and my shirt and bra was SOAKED!
I tried it a second time, thought it was user error. Well same thing happened. It was at night and when I sat up in bed, yep HUGE leak!
So I can use these during the day, but not at night. But at this point I no longer leak at all, so I really don't need them. I'm bummed they didn't work for me!
The wash was super easy to use though. You just pump out a squirt and handwash the pads and then rinse them. SUPER easy!
I love the organza bag they come with, great for in the diaper bag or even just wherever you store your pads.
I didn't try the wipes.
Price: The Started kit is $36.95. You can also get the starter with 2 sets of pads for $49.95. Normally 1 set of pads is $22.95
Overall: *** 1/2. They just didn't work for me. I don't leak that bad so I'm sure for a woman who leaks really bad these definitely wouldn't work.
