Q: Can I nurse my child while wearing NOONI'S?
A: Absolutely! In an effort to achieve maximum nighttime comfort, NOONI’S Nursing Sleep Bras do not include hook-and-eye closure. Instead, NOONI’S are design to easily lift up for a skin-to-skin nursing experience with baby or pull down for quick nursing access.
Q: What stage of pre- or post-partum are NOONI’S sleep bras designed for?
A: NOONI’S Nursing Sleep Bras are designed for all “4 trimesters” (pre- and post-partum). While the absorbent inner layers functions to prevent leaks, the sleep bra itself is incredibly soft and cozy for all of your pregnancy and post-partum comfort needs. Here are a few examples when you, or a loved one, may find comfort while wearing NOONI’S Nursing Sleep Bra:
During pregnancy you...
- Need a little extra support for painful nights.
- Need protection from the occasional leaky night.
- Can’t seem to find a comfortable sleep bra that will hold your top breast inside while you lay on your side.
While postpartum you...
- Have just experienced your milk's arrival and you need a little extra support at night. And, maybe some extra protection from spraying everywhere and everyone.
- Have just begun breastfeeding, your nipples are cracked and sore, and you need a soft barrier to protect your clothing from nipple cream- and, that won’t be stuck to you when you wake up (ouch!)
- Haven’t been able to find a nursing pad that you like, that stays where you want it to, that covers a large enough area, or that can absorb breastmilk without saturating through onto your nightgown.
- You are finally sleeping a longer stretch at night and find yourself in a puddle of breast milk.
- Let-down on both sides while you nurse and end up getting your poor munchkin all wet.
- Don’t have any need to wear a sleep bra anymore, but find NOONI'S sleep bras to be so soft and cozy that you want to keep wearing them anyway.
Q: How many NOONI’S should I purchase?
A: We recommend starting out with at least two. If you are a heavy leaker you may wish to purchase more. For maximum comfort and skin health we recommend changing into a dry NOONI’S when wet, washing NOONI’S as soon as possible after each use, and drying completely. How many NOONI’S you will need will depend on how frequently you plan on doing laundry for your little one.
Q: Do I need to wear nursing pads inside NOONI’S to protect from leaking?
A: Nope! We designed NOONI’S to eliminate the struggles associated with nursing pads by making the entire front of NOONI'S Nursing Sleep Bra absorbable and leak-resistant. No more adjusting pads throughout the night, or waking up in a puddle of breast milk with your nursing pads bunched up on the side. The seamless front layer of NOONI’S is made of baby soft fleece, which will wick away breast milk; hold body heat so you wont feel cold when the bra gets wet; is less likely to stick to healing, chapped nipples than a standard cotton breast pad; and will be where you need it, no matter how many times you turn over at night.
Q: Can NOONI'S guarantee I won't leak through onto my pajamas?
A: Our patent-pending leak-resistant technology is designed to wick breastmilk away, absorb it, and prevent it from passing through. However, all fabric materials have a saturation threshold. Therefore, we recommend treating your NOONI'S Nursing Sleep Bra as you would a nursing pad and changing it when wet to avoid over saturation and possible seam leakage. To determine if NOONI’S will work for you, check out some of our testimonials on the home page, or read through our product reviews, to see how NOONI'S worked for other leaking Mamas.
Q: Are NOONI'S just for leaking Moms?
A: While the inspiration, design, and construction were created with a leaking Mom in mind, NOONI'S can be worn through any stage of your pregnancy and postpartum journey - and beyond. The material is soft to the skin, and the gentle support provides comfort for Moms or Moms-to-be to sleep a little more soundly at night.
NOONI'S are also idea for any woman who has undergone a breast surgery and needs a very gentle support, with a soft inner material that won't irritate healing scars.
Q: How do I care for my NOONI'S Nursing Sleep Bra?
A: We recommend that you wash your sleep bra after each use, especially if you are leaking. For greatest longevity, hand wash in hot soapy water and line dry. If you prefer to machine-wash your NOONI’S sleep bra, we recommend a cool water, gentle setting for the wash cycle, and a low heat setting for the drying cycle. Do not use fabric softeners as they can inhibit the absorption quality. With either hand- or machine-washing method, try to wash your used NOONI'S nursing sleep bra as soon as possible and dry completely. Note: Some discoloration or staining may occur on the absorbent, front layer due to the natural color of breast milk.
Q: How do I properly fit myself for a NOONI'S Sleep Bra?
A: To find the size that will fit you best, visit our Sizing Chart page. For additional assistance, email customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Does NOONI'S make a day-time bra?
A: Although our construction is designed for overnight comfort, NOONI'S are so comfortable you may wish to wear them around the house too. While we don't offer a day-time specific bra at this moment, many more products are in the works. To be the first to find out when new products, styles and colors become available, join our mailing list, and/or follow us on social media.
Q: Can I use nipple cream while I wear NOONI'S? Will it damage the material?
A: We know nipple cream can be a lifesaver for a breastfeeding Mom, so please use as much as you need while wearing your NOONI'S! Please note however that depending on the cream's ingredients, you may notice discoloration or staining of your NOONI'S, and the material may feel a little less soft after washing. If your cream contains oil, it may leave the oils' odor in the material as well. When possible, choose a non-toxic, certified organic nipple balm and follow the washing instructions mentioned here and on your NOONI'S nursing garment.
Q: Why not just use disposable nursing pads that stick to the skin under a nursing bra?
A: Choosing reusable materials over disposables saves money, reduces waste, and gives you control over what touches your skin. However, if disposable nursing pads are working for you, that's great! No judgement here.
Q: If I purchased the wrong size, can I exchange for a different size?
A: Yes. We want you to be fully satisfied with your purchase and find a NOONI'S that fits you best. NOONI'S will gladly exchanges items in new and unused condition, with all garment tags and protective hygienic stickers intact and unsoiled within 15 days of purchase date, FREE OF CHARGE.
