Nursing heat pads are 100% Cotton and filled with 100% Golden Flaxseed - No sharp plastic edges
Removable and machine washable outer cover (lay flat to dry)
The high oil content of golden flaxseed retains heat for longer periods of time than other fillers. Unique "U" shape of Lovies help to "hug" the breast providing soft, flexible heat on your clogged duct
Each purchase includes 2 nursing hot pads for breastfeeding therapy (one hot/cold pad for each breast or two on one breast)
Designed by a breastfeeding mother for breastfeeding therapy, Lovies provide a natural and safe way to face breastfeeding problems head-on. Lovies are 100% Cotton filled with 100% Golden Flaxseed. Golden flaxseed provides safe, long lasting heat due to the high oil content in each seed. Nursing therapy heat packs are soft and flexible, no hard or sharp plastic edges near these nipples please! Filled to the brim with golden flaxseed, Lovies can be heated in the microwave to provide long-lasting moist, therapeutic heat, or placed in the freezer for a soft cold compress. Moist heat encourages milk flow and helps to unclog a clogged duct. Apply your heated Lovies to the area of a clogged duct, followed by massaging toward the nipple then pumping or nursing. Lovies also come with a removable outer cover that is machine washable (lay flat to dry). Each order comes with two (2) Lovies (one Lovie for each breast or two Lovies for one breast). Each purchase includes a 100% Cotton tote bag. Because Lovies are filled to the brim with golden flaxseed, they are able to retain heat for 10-20 minutes at a time. Dimensions are 5" high by 7" in length, width is 1." Please note, Lovies can be burned if overheated in the microwave. We recommend heating in 15-30 second intervals and no longer than 1 minute total. For most microwaves, 30 seconds on each side gets them nice and hot. When placed in the freezer, Lovies will provide a soothing cold without being ice cold. We recommend removing the outer removable cover for cold therapy as the flaxseed will be coldest closer to your skin.

I think the concept of this item is great however the pads are extreemly small and did not cover even half my breast, leaving a large amount of my breast without comfort. If they made these in let's say small medium large (for different size woman) then this would be a great purchase butt they don't so unfortunately I will be returning them. I'm a size DD to help get an idea on how small they are.
Although I am currently 37 weeks pregnant, I have dealt with the ups and downs of breastfeeding with my first. This included dealing with clogged ducts, over supply, and fighting off mastitis for 6 weeks, yuck! With both of my pregnancies, I also dealt with leaking throughout the entire pregnancy. Since mastitis is all too familiar to me, I have actually started to develop it a few times during this pregnancy. I immediately do whatever I can to keep it from progressing - warm compresses, lavender essential oil, etc.
Let me add, I am someone who likes to be as all natural as possible. I have never used the plastic/gel breast therapy pads and although I took antibiotics for 6 weeks with my first (which didn't even help get rid of the mastitis), I want to avoid taking medication while pregnant and while breastfeeding for the second time. I love that these pads meet my needs as a mom who likes to do things as natural as possible. I am very much into the flaxseeds inside and the...
What a savior! I'm weaning my two year old son and dealing with plugged ducts like crazy. These lovies are heaven. I prefer the heat therapy to any cold. I love that they're flax!!!! They came so nicely wrapped too. The carrying bag is nice so I can bring them to work with me and no one can tell what they are. I just zap these for a few seconds in the microwave and they stay hot just long enough to get me comfortable. I love that the outer wrap is washable... Those who breastfeed know it can get messy... I even wear them at work. They slip in my bra and I've been able to kind of hide them under my shirt. (I have been wearing sweaters because it's cold anyway...) I would recommend these to any new mom who's going to nurse. But honestly... Even if not nursing, your milk comes in. This may alleviate those pains as well!! I got mine in exchange for a review. I'm so glad I got the chance to use these.
