Our new delivery options for Mainland UK are:

What is your bladder trying to tell you about your health?

19.05.2016 | Posted in: Advice, Bladder Weakness, Incontinence | Author: Colin

A recent article published by netdoctor in collaboration with TENA Lady discusses how your bladder can reveal a surprising amount of information on the state of your body and wellbeing.

1. Pain on urination

Any pain with urine is a sign that something is wrong. Usually this is a sign of infection, which causes a burning sensation when passing urine. Always seek medical advice for prompt treatment.

2. Urinating too much

Passing too much urine is not just inconvenient, it can also be significant as a symptom. If you are passing a tiny amount of urine very often, up to every 30 minutes in some cases, this is usually a sign of a urine tract infection. Certain medications, such as those used for blood pressure, may cause frequent urination. The need to urinate often, along with a significant thirst, can sometimes be the first signs of diabetes. Overactive bladder syndrome causes a number of bladder issues such as the need to urinate often.

3. Urgency

That sudden and overwhelming feeling that you must find a toilet is called bladder urgency. It can be a temporary symptom when you have a urinary infection. However, for many women who experience some form of incontinence, the urge can be a more permanent side effect. Usually the cause is an overactive bladder.

4. Leaks

Unexpected leaks from bladder weakness are exceedingly common and estimated to affect between 3 and 6 million people in the UK. Leaks can occur when there is uncontrolled passing of urine, due to pressure on the abdomen, and this is known as stress incontinence.

5. Blood in urine

It is never normal to have blood in your urine so always consult a doctor. Often, blood in the urine is caused by an infection of the urinary system or bladder, like cystitis. Similarly, if you have kidney stones, you will experience pain and blood when you pass urine. Passing blood with no pain is an important symptom.  This can be a sign of bladder cancer and must always be urgently checked out with your doctor.

100% Cotton Top Sheet Nursing Pads – New from Allanda

06.05.2016 | Posted in: Cottons, Nursing Pads, Pregnancy | Author: Colin

Our recent launch of Cottons Maternity Pads has resulted in questions whether we also stock Nursing Pads. As Cottons also make Nursing Pads these have been added to our range and our now available.

Nursing pads, also known as Breast pads help to absorb breast milk or colostrum that may leak between and during feedings post childbirth. They are worn inside your bra to keep both the bra dry and milk away from your clothing. Most mothers don’t have problems with leaking after the early weeks, so you probably won’t need breast pads for long, but they’re very useful at first.

You can buy either disposable pads or cloth ones that you wash and use again.  It’s important to look for pads that allow air to circulate to your nipples. While it might seem that plastic-lined pads would protect your clothes better, they retain moisture, contributing to sore nipples and bacterial growth.

It’s also important to change nursing pads promptly after they get wet. If the pad dries and sticks to your nipple, moisten it first with warm water so that you don’t remove any skin as you pull it away from the breast.

Our Cottons Nursing Pads are disposable and have a unique 100% cotton top sheet so they’re both extremely comfortable and perfect for sensitive skin after childbirth. These Nursing Pads have been extensively tested by new mums, to ensure the best design and materials were used. They are hypo-allergenic so are perfect for sensitive skin and helping to minimise some of the soreness that can be associated with breast feeding. The superior grade 100% natural cotton used ensures they are exceptionally comfortable and low irritant.
