    Knickernappies Stackable Menstrual Pads
    Stackable Mama Pads are a unique 3-in-1 system that will allow you to adjust absorbancy throughout your menstrual cycle without having to buy several sizes of pads.  One Stackable pad can be a pantiliner, regular pad, and heavy pad.

    Each complete pad set includes an outer shell and two liners.  One liner is smaller for light days, one is larger for regular days, and using both together is great for heavy days.  Both pads snap securely onto the shell so you'll never need to buy a different size of shell...every Knickernappies Stackable pad fits onto every shell! 

    With the Stackable system, you will likely only need a few shells since the shell only needs to be changed if it gets soiled.  Otherwise, just unsnap the soiled pad and snap on a fresh one!       

    The outer shell is very thin, but waterproof fleece.  It won't slide around the way PUL pads can!  Large pads are made from microfiber, hemp, and cotton/poly velour.  Small pads are microfiber and velour.  The velour against the skin is so soft and comfortable.  Pads are very absorbant and comfortable to wear.

    *Available as a Complete Pad Set (2 pads, one shell) or as Extra Pad Set (2 pads, no shell).

    Milk Bands

    Milk Bands are the latest solutions for breastfeeding mothers who desire to keep an accurate nursing log of their baby's feeds without the hassles of nursing journals, safety pins or bracelets being switched from side to side.

    Milk Bands were exclusively designed to conveniently provide the feeding information of an infant to the nursing mother all on one wrist!

    Milk Bands incorporate many unique features such as a side indicator, which lets the mother know which breast should be used when starting a breast feeding session by simply flipping the Milk Band inside-out once during every nursing session, as well as a time tracking device which can be used for many different purposes including:

    • Record single feeding sessions to the nearest 5 minute increment
    • Record multiple feeding sessions over a full day period
    • Record the number of times the baby fed in one day
    • Record the number of diapers a baby soiled during the day
    • Reminding the mother what time the baby last fed
    • Reminding the mother roughly what time the baby is due for another feeding

    Milk Bands measure 7 1/2" round by 9/16" wide, made with 100% silicon and come in 5 different colors to choose from:  Pink, Blue, Yellow, Green or Lilac.
