EPIBI® Nursing Pads - The Feel Good Pad for Nursing Moms
Posted Mar 31 2010 12:00am
I'm always interested to find out about breastfeeding products that can help mothers who are nursing their babies; so I was intrigued to hear about the innovative and newly available EPIBI® Nursing Pad (for normal and day wear) and the EPIBI® EVE Nursing Pad (for more absorbent extended wear).
What makes them unique is that they are currently the only anti-microbial, washable breast pads on the market. Not only that, but they also are environmentally-friendly as they help cut down on the waste created by disposable nursing pads.
For many nursing mums, (myself included if we go back a few years!) many of the currently available breast pads on the market can cause skin irritation, moisture build up, or chaffing and this can in turn lead to a variety of breastfeeding problems. However, EPIBI® Anti-Microbial Nursing Pads help you avoid these problems because they have been created with comfort in mind, having a soft, soy-cotton cover and breathable layers which allow air to circulate and your skin to breathe.
According to mothers who have used the pads, there is a noticeable and immediate difference between EPIBI® and normal, reusable and disposable nursing pads.
The company behind the technology responsible for the nursing pads, Persimmon Scientific®, are committed to meeting the needs of breastfeeding mums and their babies.
By taking into account the unique needs of premature babies and working with their mothers and professional caregivers, the EPIBI® EVE Nursing Pad has been specially created for both night-time use and to aid premature babies in other ways. For instance, mothers of preemies are encouraged to leave their nursing pads in the babies bassinets in the NICU after use. This means that even when mum cannot be with baby, the baby can still smell her milk and feel secure and has been shown to help develop the bond between mother and baby.
