Mommy's Craft Corner Nursing Pads Review and Giveaway

I am so excited to bring you this review of nursing pads made by a work-at-home-mom (WAHM).  Tracy, owner of the Etsy shop Mommy's Craft Corner, generously sent me a pair of these nursing pads to review and has offered a $20.00 gift card to her amazing shop for one lucky reader.

One of the things I love about Tracy's shop is her prices.  Everything is so darn cute that you want to buy it all, and with her great prices, you practically can.  I have already ordered more of the nursing pads, and I am so pleased at the savings over other brands and especially over disposable nursing pads.

Tracy's story

I asked Tracy to tell me a little more about herself so I could share with my readers about who this WAHM is and what motivates her.  This is what she shared with me.  I love her story, and I love supporting her!

I married my best friend in February 2007 and we had our first daughter November 2008. She was 3 1/2 weeks early at 5lbs 10oz, but completely healthy and no need for the NICU. My second daughter was born in 2011, 10 weeks premature at 2lbs 7oz and stayed in the NICU for 7 weeks. After her and I returned home (because the nearest hospital with a NICU was 2 1/2 hours away) I was very busy worrying about her and getting ready for my Student Teaching Internship. I finally completed my Student Teaching, after two attempts due to the premature birth, and earned my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education in December 2011. It was wonderful to not be so busy with school and my preemie baby girl was 100% healthy... and that's when I started crafting. It started with tutu's and hair bows/flowers for my two girls and turned into a love and obsession with sewing and fabric! These days I sew almost anything as well as craft almost anything, and I just started building some things too... for my girls' new 18 inch dolls, beds and little closets, and soon I will be attempting my first big building project... a table to home school my girls next school year. :)

I am so lucky to be able to substitute at my local elementary school occasionally, stay at home with my wonderful girls, and have my very own Etsy shop that I absolutely LOVE! :) I have a fantastic husband who works very hard at making us three girls happy and I am so grateful that I am able to do all these things that I love every day!

My goal for my Etsy Shop is to make high quality, adorable, one of a kind items at a price where everyone can enjoy them! After having two baby girls and nursing them both for 15 months each, I feel like I can make nursing pads and baby items that are not only cute, but durable and actually work! No mom or dad wants to put a bib on their baby and then have to change it within ten minuets because it just doesn't absorb all that drool from teething or it isn't big enough to catch baby/toddler spills. :) Besides baby items, my shop also has, girls hair clips, garlands, and one of a kind personalized wreaths for birthdays and our military! 

My experience

I had been using disposable nursing pads, and even though I am still pregnant, I was going through at least a pair a day because I do have a fair amount of leaking already.  When I got towards the end of my economy-sized box of disposable nursing pads, I knew I needed to find another solution.

When I received the set of nursing pads to review, they were nicely packaged and even pre-washed for me.  The first time I used them, I was instantly sold.  They are slim enough to be concealed by my bra, and they are so much more comfortable than the disposables.  No more painful moments of getting stuck to the nursing pads for this girl.  The flannel is so soft against the skin, and they easily conform to your shape without showing lines.

I have washed these nursing pads many times, and they are still just as soft and adorable as the day I got them.  (I know it really shouldn't matter what they look like since they're just riding around inside my bra, but I love that the nursing pads all come in cute designs.)  I wear them to bed, and they are so comfortable I don't even remember I am wearing them.

The nursing pads come in regular and extra absorbent.  I found that the regular were just fine for my purposes, but if you need a little extra protection, go for the extra absorbent.

The giveaway

Tracy has generously offered a $20 gift certificate to her Etsy shop for one lucky reader.  Once you visit her shop, you will be hard-pressed not to order something, so make sure to favorite her shop and your favorite items.  She adds more items periodically, so check back often!
