How to Make Padsicles (postpartum frozen pads) to help soothe and heal after after delivering a baby. Padsicles are the best postpartum pads because they are covered in aloe vera, witch hazel and lavender oil.
Partially unwrap a few pads at a time, but don't detach the wrapper. Spread aloe vera generously up and down the whole pad. Don't just do the middle part - spread it further down almost to the bottom of the pad. Just trust me on that. Pour about a teaspoon of witch hazel down the middle.
Add a few drops of lavender oil. Fold the pads back up to how they were and stick them in a gallon sized plastic bag, then freeze. Pull them out of the freezer, one by one, as needed and let them thaw for two or three minutes before use.
Always Overnight Maxi with wings are the pads I prefer for this. The essential oil is optional, but lavender oil does have healing properties so I recommend using it if you can! Also, it smells amazing.
