    Default removing breast milk from clothes/ bedding

    hi ladies

    I am breast feeding my 12 day old bub and loving it. My supply came in late but is now in with full force. While i was getting the hang of things, I managed to leak milk onto a few pillows, cusions and clothes. I am now starting to realise I need rags on hand and am using breast pads.

    I have washed one cushion that was leaked on badly but it still smells. I believe it is due to the protein in the milk?

    Any suggestions on how to best wash the clothes/ pillows?

    Subbing as soaking in nappy sand doesn't seem to work... And it's worse when it's possets of milk from bub!

    Put some Eucalyptus oil into your washing machine with your linen/clothing etc and that should help.
