Benefits of nursing pads in wool:Every breast-feeding mother wants breast-feeding to be a positive experience for her and her baby. These incredibly soft and soothingly comfortable nursing pads provide the best conditions for successful breast-feeding.
- Most women need only 2 pairs for the entire nursing period.
- Lanolin's cleansing properties keep the wool fresh and hygienic.
- Even when the nursing pads are wet they still feel warm and dry. The wool can absorb up to 40% of its weight without feeling wet.
- When the nursing pad feels wet you can dry it on the radiator.
- For many years Scandinavian midwives have advised mothers to protect their breasts from wind and cold to prevent breast infection and mastitis.
- It is recommended to use a size that covers the whole breast.
By tense breasts especially in the start of the pregnancy it gives relief to use wool nursing pads.

NEWS about washing and sterilization of nursing pads made of ecological merino woolThrough many years LANACare has been a leading firm within production and sale of nursing pads made of wool and right now a quite new nursing pad made of pure soft merino wool has been developed and marketed. And the new SOFT LINE nursing pad has already been extremely well received.
There are exactly as many prejudices against caring and washing instructions, as there are different kinds of woollen nursing pads. It is recommended to wash the new SOFT LINE nursing pads on the WOOL washing programme 30 degr. C and afterwards â€“ while they are still wet â€“ put them in the microwave oven for 3 minutes on full power (100 degr. C). The result is totally sterile nursing pads without bacteria and fungus.
Since January 2007 professor in environmental engineering Mr. Gabriel Britton at the University of Florida has pointed out that all homes supplied with a microwave oven have extremely effective means for sterilization of kitchen textiles â€“ and therefore also nursing pads â€“ against bacteria and fungus.
The State Serum Institute recommends 100 degr. C in connection with elimination of fungus. This is easily achieved by means of the microwave oven and it becomes quite simple to wash and sterilize the new, soft and comfortable SOFT LINE nursing pads.
For further information and if you have questions regarding the above please contact LANACare, Jeannette Almstroem.
Guidelines in sizes:Mini - 3 1/2 in. - A cup (Size XS is recommended owing to the benefits of the wool when the whole breast is covered.)
X-Small - 5 in.- A or B cup
Small - 6 in. - B or C cup
Medium - 7 in. - D cup or larger
Large - 9 in. - D cup or larger
Oval - 7 x 11 in. - D cup or by breast infection
Many women are surprised by the size of the pads.
This is because the wool is not only intended for absorbing milk but also to protect and warm your entire breasts.
