New Breastfeeding Pad - EpiBi Nursing Pads
mnishiguchi posted:
Hello all,

My aunt has developed a new innovative nursing pad that is currently available, and I just wanted to share it with you. I noticed that this is a great online resource for mothers, so hopefully this could be something of interest to you.

It's called the EpiBi Nursing Pads from Persimmon Scientific (her company). They are different from other available nursing pads as they are the only antimicrobial, washable pads in the market. They rapidly wick moisture away from the skin and have good breatheability.

So far, over 100 nursing mothers have tried the pads and none have had any infections. It remains fresh after many washes, which not only saves money for a mother, but also reduces environmental waste. It is thinner, softer and 35% lighter than cotton pads.

While I am not a nursing mother, I was thinking you may be interested in this great new product. Currently they are only selling at St. Joseph Hospital Of Orange, CA, the UCLA Medical Center shop, The Pump Station in Los Angeles, and a few other independent pharmacies. She plans on expanding, but slowly and only through select sellers that can teach customers a bit about nursing.

The website for the nursing pads is, and the company is

Thanks for your time,
