Wool nursing pads are really smart as the wool keeps the breast warm, thus preventing breast inflammation. At the same time, wool is a natural material that feels good against the skin. In addition, a wool breast pad can be used throughout the breastfeeding period, which is very environmentally friendly.

However, there are several types of wool nursing pads, and here we have taken a look at the different versions and prices of wool nursing pads.

Find the right nursing pad for you

Almost no two mothers have the same needs or desires for their nursing inserts. Fortunately, there are many to choose from. In addition to wool, there are also cotton or disposable nursing pads. Which kind is best for you depends on your preferences and, of course, how much milk leaks from the breast.

Good breast pads are essential as they keep the breast dry and warm, preventing breast inflammation and general discomfort. Nursing pads are one of the breastfeeding accessories that are good to have bought before birth. Suddenly milk is flowing and it's nice to have breast pads ready.

Disposable inserts - the smart solution

Disposable liners are the most practical if there is a lot of milk coming from the breast. You put them in your nursing bra and throw them out when they feel wet. This will typically be 1-2 times a day, but it varies greatly from woman to woman. The great thing about disposable sanitary pads is that the milk can't leak through. They can be bought cheaply online, for example from Babygear, but otherwise available in grocery stores.

Why should I use a nursing pad?

A nursing insert is an insert that is placed between your breast and your bra or shirt when you are breastfeeding. It is available both as a disposable insert and as a reusable insert. The reusable ones are usually made of wool or silk, for the best comfort for your breast. The nursing pad is used when breastfeeding to make sure you don't get milk stains on your clothes and wet and irritable nipples. Especially in the beginning of your breastfeeding, your breasts will release milk between feedings, they do this because you overproduce milk before you know your baby's feeding rhythm. A reusable wool nursing pad will ensure that you avoid a lot of laundry, and uncomfortable episodes of sore nipples.  

 

Keep warm with a wool nursing pad

A wool nursing cover will not only help you keep your clothes milk-free, it will also help you keep warm around your nipples. The warmth is important for your breasts as it helps stimulate milk production, and a warm wool nursing pad also reduces the chance of getting breast infections, or clotted milk that will bother you and breastfeeding. A wool nursing cover can absorb a lot of milk compared to other models, ensuring a longer period of dry and comfortable breasts. Wool nursing pads are recommended by both maternity nurses and midwives, as their warming properties are clearly recommended in a nursing pad, along with their absorbent properties.  

 

How to use a nursing insert? 

Nursing pads come in many different shapes, but are usually a round or oval shape that fits between the breast and the bra or sweater. During the day or night, the nursing cover will absorb the milk it leaks and can then be changed as needed. Although the nursing pads are made of wool, they can usually be washed in the washing machine and are therefore easy to get clean and ready for use again.

3 things you can't do without when breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is certainly hard work, but still a great desire and need for most mothers. Breastfeeding is healthy for both mother and baby, so you should prepare yourself as well as possible.

1. Lanolin cream - prevent and relieve wounds

A lanolin cream or nipple cream is indispensable for sore nipples. It's really useful right from the start, so pack it in your bag for the hospital.

2. Drinking bottle - you need to drink plenty when breastfeeding

Breastfeeding makes you very thirsty and your body needs litres of water every day to produce milk. For some people, it feels like a spoonful of sand is put in your mouth every time you feed your baby. It is not uncommon for breastfeeding mothers to drink up to 4-5 litres of water a day. You may also want to fit a cup holder to your pushchair so you always have your drinking bottle to hand. See different cup holders here.

3. Easy and healthy snacks - quick calories

When you are breastfeeding, you need about 500 kcal more than normal. This is because your body needs lots of energy to produce milk for your baby.
