Lime Daisy Designs - Cloth nappies for your boobs!

This time we are meeting the lovely Aileen from Lime Daisy design, another one of my customers who has taken her beautiful sewing skills and made a business of it :)  

Here's the hello from Aileen -

Hi, I’m Aileen Mum of 2 little ones and owner of LimeDaisy Design.  I started LimeDaisy Design long before I ever had children and use to focus mainly on painted crafts and candles.  

With my first son I found that I loved using cloth breast pads and found some in Canada that were good, but not great.  I leaked often and must have had about 40 pairs to ensure I always had some dry ones on hand.  With my second child, a daughter, I figured there had to be a better way.  

I discovered Nappies Covered just after my daughter was born in 2009 and Jodie was so extremely helpful and wonderful in helping me out with the fabrics I needed to use. I even went to the Melbourne Baby show just to meet her and see the fabrics in person.   

Essentially I made a cloth nappy for your boobs!  If the fabrics were good enough to put on your baby’s bottom and contain the mess, then they would definitely be good enough for the milk I was producing!  So after some trial and error I came up with Daisy Pads – Bamboo Core breast pads and have not looked back since.  
There are hundreds of Mums out there using them now (one customer told me that LimeDaisy boobs, were happy boobs – my new unofficial slogan).  I chose to do them in fun fabrics because I really want Mums to have fun while they are breastfeeding.  

I feel that it is extremely important to care about the environment so these pads should last you through all your breastfeeding years.  They save you money on buying the horrid papery disposable ones and with the fun fabrics they make breastfeeding a special time and a talked about time.  I love that I have gotten to have a fantastic experience breastfeeding my children and I would encourage every Mum to give it a go. 
If it works for you, it will be the most wonderful experience.
Since starting making the breast pads I’ve also rediscovered a love of sewing so I am slowly branching out to other fun items – and ones that work for my toddlers as they grow.  Stop on by my store for a visit, you might just find something you didn’t know you needed.
