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.

  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.

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.

These have been a lifesaver! Simple to wash, and they feel amazing against your skin. It's been so helpful to have something to catch any leakage while we adjust to supply and demand feeding. Third baby, but wish I had these with my first two.


These have been a lifesaver! Simple to wash, and they feel amazing against your skin. It's been so helpful to have something to catch any leakage overnight.


I received some reusable nursing pads on Amazon that I was leaking through in a few hours. Definitely woke up with a wet bra/shirt /sheets in the morning. I had seen LilHelper advertised on tikTok several times and the next time they popped up after I had been doing with wet clothes, I took the plunge and got 4 pairs. They. Are. AMAZING. I have never once leaked through these and I tend to have a heavy supply and leak when feeding on the other breast. They have done me so well and I have since purchased another set!

Sheanna, from one over supply heavy let down mom to another, I am giddy knowing that we could help make you more comfortable! Honestly, this is probably my personal favorite product because I think it is a best kept secret what a difference a lil engineering can make for us leaky super humans working hard to feed the next generation! You're doing an amazing job - and I am overjoyed that we can play some small part in making it easier for you and more comfortable.
Sending all the good vibes,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

A game changer

These overnight pads are seriously the best! I have issues with leaking overnight because my partner gives our little one a bottle for one feed so I wake up with extra supply, but I'm always comfortable and dry with these pads! I also like using them in my sports bra for extra absorbency when I exercise. So happy I bought these!

Dear Brianna,
I am giddy knowing that we can help you get a little well deserved rest in comfort so that your partner can take over a bit! Please send us a message at delight@lilhelper.ca if we can ever answer any questions or concerns.
Sleep tight,
