Women LOVE LANACare Soft Pure Woolen Breastfeeding Pads! These nursing pads are incredibly soft and soothingly comfortable. They absorb up to 40% of its weight without feeling wet and when they do finally get wet, they are warm, not cold and clammy. They are soothing against tender, sore nipples. They keep breasts warm and dry to promote healing and prevent plugged ducts.
Only 2 pairs are needed for most women during the entire nursing period. When one pair feels wet, let it dry and wear the other pair of LANACare Nursing Pads. Untreated wool should be washed as seldom as possible. As the wool absorbs moisture, the natural lanolin is converted to lanolin-soap, which has an antibacterial effect. When the moisture evaporates, only the milk solids are left. Eventually the milk solids build up and the pads will begin to feel stiff. Only then will you need to wash them (approximately once a month). Wash by hand with a lanolin-soap or a mild hair shampoo.
Many people who believe that they are allergic to wool can often wear the LANACare Soft Pure Woolen Breast Feeding Pads! Most reactions actually occur when the chemicals used to extract the lanolin from the wool; these chemicals are not used in LANACare wool.
LANACare Soft Pure Woolen Breast Feeding Pads are available in several sizes and varieties to meet the needs of all women. Below are the two different varieties:
1. LANACare Original Breastfeeding Pads have a double-layer of wool and are sufficient for most women's needs. Dry more quickly than Ekstra.
2. LANACare Ekstra Breastfeeding Pads have an extra layer of felted wool sewn between the two layers for exta protection. To minimize bulk, size XS has only 2 layers of felted wool. Great for women with extra strong "let-down" reflexes or heavy leakage.
