Boobsie DIY Nursing Pads tutorial

I’ve read that some reusable nursing pads leak and I think it’s a lack of absorbancy issue (ie 100% cotton isn’t all that absorbent).

Imaginative play is in full swing for Gemma these days, and I am trying to help her have fun in her newfound adventureland. I came up with a cute idea to turn our backyard into a treasure hunt for her. Since I made this map, I figured this might be a good game for her [...]
