|LANACare Soft Pure Woolen Breastfeeding Pads - The Breast Pads Women LOVE!
Every nursing mother wants breastfeeding to be a positive experience for her and her baby. These incredibly soft and soothingly comfortable nursing pads provide the best conditions for successful breastfeeding.
Most women need only 2 pairs for the entire nursing period. When one pair feels wet, let it dry while wearing the second pair. Lanolin's cleansing properties keep the wool fresh and hygienic. The wool can absorb up to 40% of its weight without feeling wet. When the pads do feel wet, they're warm, not cold and clammy as with cotton or disposable pads.
Your skin is kept dry and able to breathe, allowing sore nipples to heal.
Scandinavian midwives have, for centuries, advised mothers to protect their breasts from wind and cold to prevent plugged ducts and mastitis.
Larger sizes give protective coverage over greater a portion of the breast.
When needed, wash by hand in lukewarm water with mild hair shampoo.
There is a new documentation that shows that putting a newly washed wool nursing pad in the microwave for 2 minutes removes all bacteria!
Mini 9 cm - 3 1/2 in.
X-Small 12 cm - 5 in.

Many women are surprised by the larger size of the pads, compared to the familiar disposable or cotton pads. This is because the wool is intended to provide more benefits than simply absorbing milk. Scandinavians have, for centuries, felt that protecting your breasts from wind and cold can help prevent plugged ducts and mastitis.

To be certain the size you order is what you'd like, please note the measurements of each pad size and gauge against your breast/bra. Certain bra styles may work best with the smaller sizes.
