Breast Pads that smell like milk all the time???
 
Do your nursing pads smell like milk all of the time? Even when clean? Am I not washing them thoroughly?

BTW: I am using Milk Diapers brand, washing warm, drying hot.

Yes... I hated that smell for the first month... I wanted to puke every time I smelled them.

Try washing them with your diapers... I think that helped me. Maybe someone else has a better suggestion.

A year later they don't smell as bad, and I wash them with our clothes.

When my hemp ones get stinky I spray them with 50/50 vinegar and water then wash them with the non-diaper baby laundry. I probably end up doing that every third wash or so.

Maybe try a hotter wash? Mine always did well with country save detergent.
