Pink Nursing Pads for a Cure

This Sunday, more than 50 blogs across the blogosphere are blogging in pink in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We’re honored to join The ArtsyGirl Connection to paint the world *pink* for a cure.

We’re excited to offer pink nursing pads in our online store. For each pair that we sell on Sunday, October 30, from 12:00 A.M. to 11:59 P.M., we will donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.You can purchase the nursing pads in our online store for $7.95 plus shipping. (Shipping is FREE for orders of $25 or more).

Made by Megan, a local mom, these organic cloth nursing pads are reusable, comfortable, and cute. Made from organic hemp, they are soft and luxurious next to your skin. Because they are lined with PUL, they prevent leaks from showing through your clothing. Buy them for yourself or as a baby shower gift. You can never have too many nursing pads.

Research shows that breastfeeding can reduce a mother's risk of breast cancer. In fact, nursing for more than 2 years can reduce the risk by about 50 percent! Also, women who were breastfed as infants, even if it was only for a short period of time, are 25% less likely to develop breast cancer as adults.

So support breast cancer research. Breastfeed your babies. Buy these nursing pads. Make a difference.

Megan lives in Leland, NC with her husband Blake and 9-month-old son Finley. She is passionate about breastfeeding, cloth diapering and sewing.  She is a preschool teacher for Pender County Schools by day and enjoys sewing for her Etsy shop and Green Baby Diaper Service in her spare time.
