Are LilyPadz® safe?
Yes. LilyPadz® are made of 100% medical grade, gas permeable silicone, a material that shows no allergic reactions and is skin tested.
Will LilyPadz® cause
mastitis or thrush?
A study has shown LilyPadz® users have decreased risk of common breastfeeding complications such as mastitis, thrush, nipple injury, and duct clogging compared to the use of traditional cotton pads. You can find a copy of the study HERE.
Can LilyPadz® be used
Yes. However because LilyPadz® help maintain proper moisture balance in the breast tissue, most moms using LilyPadz® find less of a need for lanolin. LilyTip: Because lanolin is oily by nature it may interfere with LilyPadz® ability to adhere to you, so we recommend applying only to the nipple and areola (leaving the edges to still adhere) and wearing them with good support to avoid slippage.
How long will LilyPadz® last?
If properly cared for and used as directed LilyPadz® have a life expectancy of up to 2 months. Please contact us directly at 1.800.640.LILY or email@example.com, if you need assistance caring for your LilyPadz®.
Will LilyPadz® affect my milk supply?
No. LilyPadz® do not adversely affect milk supply. As long as you are feeding or expressing you milk regularly, your supply will adjust based on the demand established by you and your child.
