Product Description

Why wear wool pads versus disposables or other washable pads?

Unlike traditional cotton nursing pads, The Danish Woolen Original Wool Nursing Pads contain natural lanolin to keep skin dry, promote breathability, and help heal sore nipples.  They create a feeling of warmth that often is helpful in treatment of Reynaud’s Syndrome.   We often associate wool with scratchiness and irritation, but the Danish Woolen Pads are unbelievably soft, non irritating, and actually soothing with their natural lanolin content.

Note:  The pad at the right in this image shows the size of a traditional disposable bra pad.

Fabric and Care

How to Care for your Wool Nursing Pads:

When needed, wash by hand in lukewarm water with mild hair shampoo, alternating with LANACare 20% Lanolin-Soap. LANA's lanolin-replenishing soap has a much higher lanolin content than most other wool-washes and will keep your pads feeling soft and soothing. New documentation shows that putting a newly washed wool nursing pad in the microwave for 2 minutes removes all bacteria!
