Mumdrop Milk Towel – the must have for leaky breasts
The unique patented design includes a soft toweling wrap – great for control of after shower let-down and night leaks. Included in the pack is a removable inner layer that can absorb over 200ml liquid, Simply snap the absorbant layer to the inside of the toweling wrap – no more worrying about escaping breast pads. It has adjustable fasteners to adapt to the full breasts or newly drained.
For easy breastfeeding access simply undo the top or bottom buttons.
The Mumdrop™ milk towel comes in four sizes S, M, L and XL. Each towel is adjustable in size both above the bust and underneath the bust using the snaps. The front edge is also elasticated to cater for breasts of varying sizes. If you have a larger cup size (EE+), please read below.
The following size guidelines are based on the wearer’s bra size (without cup) when breastfeeding.
Make sure you are wearing the Mumdrop towel the correct way up, with elastic at the bottom (see instruction sheet supplied). If you have it on upside down there won’t be anything holding your breasts in place and it won’t work at all.
For larger cup sizes
The Mumdrop sizes currently vary in the length of the towel, but not the width, which is approximately 20cm. You can certainly use it when you have a larger cup size, but the larger your breasts, the lower the towel will come up and over your breasts at the top. This may still be comfortable for some and should still do the job if done up firmly, but please consider this if you have EE + cup sizes. We hope to have an addition style for larger cup sizes coming out in the future.
When to wear the towel
Every woman is different, some just have light leakage while others have bothersome leaking. For light leakage you can wear the Mumdrop milk towel without the bedtime layer, or if you are have medium leakage, wear it with the bedtime layer (which absorbs over 200ml!). If you have very heavy leakage at night and find you need more absorption we recommend to wear it with a sleep bra and breastpads (sounds bulky, but anything to get out of the soaked sheet every night)
Will it replace the nursing bra
The milk towel is not a feeding bra, it is there to absorb all the leakage you may experience. From feedback from mums some find it easy to drop down one side and feed, while others find it easier to remove before feeding. It is a personal thing.
Hygiene is pretty important when you’re breastfeeding. No one wants to end up with any nasty infections so we recommend changing your bedtime layer for a clean one every night, particularly if you are a heavy leaker. Wash your mumdrop milk towel often, just as you wash maternity bras and reusable breast pads.
The outer towel is made from 100% cotton print and a bamboo viscose towelling which is lovely and soft.
The bedtime layer has a microfleece stay dry layer close to your skin to draw moisture away from you, with two absorbent layers in the middle made from bamboo viscose. The outer layer of fabric is a breathable, waterproof polyester microfibre that retains the moisture within the bedtime layer.
