How to Sew Your Own Nursing Pads

By  | 

sewing.jpgWant to save money on nursing pads and help save the environment too? Several sources provide very simple instructions for making reusable nursing pads from flannel receiving blankets, old cotton t-shirts, or fleece fabric. Check out these options:

NJW of Associated Content — uses a CD as a circle pattern to make reusable nursing pads out of flannel

Frugal Families — suggests four layers of flannel rather than two

Frugal Baby Tips — uses old cotton t-shirts

mistymq on eHow — uses fleece and t-shirt cotton or flannel, and adds a waterproof fabric layer (PUL, drapery lining or plastic diaper cover-ups)
