Wanna know the crappy #momlife secret I was not prepared for? LEAKY BOOBS!

So I’m here to spill the beans and suggest you check out our contoured, comfortable and absorbent breast pads. Your tatas, clothing, and other earthly possessions will thank you.

2 pairs per pack.

  1. 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. If you are washing them with your diapers please remember to rinse off any nipple cream that may be present prior to washing.
  2. 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.

washable nursing pads to protect pregnant moms clothes while breastfeading

3 Layers of goodness

Each pad is made from three action packed layers. Waterproof PUL (to keep your shirts, sheets, and significant other protected from your “fountains of youth”) + Absorbent Bamboo Terry (to suck in and hold all the leaky goodness) + Wicking Bamboo Poly Mesh on your skin(keeps you 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, lumps, or weird points are so pre-Covid.

Double the fun

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.

Moisture + warmth = a sticky mess.

Our washable breast pads take sticking out of the equation

Cotton breast pads (disposable nursing pads and reusable breast pads) literally glue on to your sensitive skin, which is no fun for you or your nips. Imagine peeling off a cotton breast pad that is stuck to your nipples, especially if they are dry, chapped, or (heaven forbid) cracked 😱.

Lil Helper breast pads have a stay-dry, wicking bamboo - a technical material next to your skin. Which means that your baby will be the only sticky nightmare you need to worry about.

washable nursing pads are better than disposable nursing pads as nursing bras for breast milk

We’ve taken a novel approach in our design.

Breast pads that are actually shaped like, well, breasts

Why are most breast pads “lumpy and coaster shaped”? Which titan of industry used a dinner plate - flat and round - as a design inspiration for conventional breast pads?

Our pads are soft, concave, seamless on the outside and adapt to the natural curve of your body, gently hugging “the twins” and staying out of sight.

Soggy bras are no joke.

Our breast pads have you covered

The word leaking in any context just denotes something, somewhere went wrong. Our breast pads don’t leak!! The white fabric you see is waterproof PUL that locks in moisture. The thin middle layer of super absorbent bamboo terry will soak in every drop that you leak throughout the day, and the wicking bamboo mesh will keep your breasts feeling dry while evenly dispersing the milk throughout the pad!

If you’re a “heavy wetter” or needing more coverage, our Overnight Breast Pads will be your jam!

ultra absorbent bra pads are the sports bra of the breastfeeding journey - light weight.

Soft as a feather, constructed like a tank.

Breast pads as tough as the Mamas who wear them

Just because our pads look delicate please don’t treat them with any kind of reverence by hand washing them or cleaning them with tears of a sloth. Just throw them in the washer with your regular clothes or underwear. These babies were made to last, so you will never have to replace them. Like survive the apocalypse - last. For real. All that will be left is cockroaches, Cher, and these breast pads.

And if you are scared of losing them in wash, use one of our laundry mesh bags

to keep them together.

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 thinks about crying within a 150 km radius, but our comfy, leak-proof pads will help you feel a little less like this guy.



Still not sure? Let us lay some more Tata-related knowledge on you to help ease your mind.

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.
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! 
Our nursing pads are ultra soft, ultra absorbent and can withstand heavier leaks.  Great for sensitive skin, our reusable pads are more cost effective than disposable pads.  Feel comfortable regardless of your cup size.

Does the job perfectly, i love it!


Does the job perfectly, i love it!


I bought these as I have issues with leaking through the conventional cotton pads. So far these have worked great! They are comfortable, absorbent, a little larger than the cotton ones which I like, and the patterns are fun!

Hey Clarissa,
From one leaky mom to another it is such a thrill knowing we can help you be a little more comfortable while you do the super human job of feeding your little one! We are super proud of the design on our Hera Pads because we know that conventional cotton ones don't always cut it (or absorb it!).
Thank you so much for choosing Lil Helper and taking the time to leave us feedback to help other moms looking for a great solution to leaky lactation!
Wishing you sweet dreams and dry sheets,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

These breast pads are incredible! They fit the breast shape (so no weird lines), are SO comfortable, and soak up a TON of liquid. I forget that I'm wearing them and will be recommending them to all of my friends! I bought 6 pairs!

Hi Sarah,
The only thing that makes me happier than reading reviews from folks like you who love our breastpads, is hearing Mohammed explain how he designed them, with equal parts pride and awkwardness - seriously, this is maybe the product we are most proud of because we know that shape, comfort, and absorption is SO important to breastfeeding folks working hard to feed their little ones!
Thank you for sharing and spreading the good word about our Hera Breastpads to your friends - that is a true honor!
With joyful hearts,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper


The daytime and nighttime are amazing. They never stuck to you like other ones will when they get wet and dry a little. I never leaked through them and I leaked until 8-11 months of my breastfeeding journey. I will be buying the towel so I can breastfeed side-lying !

Hi M.!
It is such a pleausre to know we can help superheros like you do the hard work of breasfeeding in comfort and style. As a fellow parent who has walked that journey, it makes me so happy to know our breastpads made a difference for you!
I highly recommend our Lifesaver Original to all my friends who breastfeed side-lying. Put your feet up and relax knowing your bed/couch is protected while you do the most important job in the world.
Please email us at delight@lilhelper.ca if you ever need any help with anything.
