WeeCare Nursing Pads are made from 2 layers of absorbent hemp fabric and one layer of ultra soft bamboo velour fabric on the top. You can, of course, choose which side you want against the skin, but the soft bamboo-side is really pleasant!
If you have sensitive nipples or tendencies to rifts when breatfeeding, then this nursing pad is the perfekt solution for you.
Note that our nursing pads do not have any waterproof layer on the back. This means that 1) they do not contain any plastic and 2) your skin can breathe. If you only leak a little, they will be just fine, but if you leak more, then you can choose to use nursing pads of wool, and if you leak a lot (many do in the beginning), then you can choose to use our nursing pads together with a pair of wool nursing pads on the outside — then you have a bullet-proof solution. Our nursing pads soak a lot and the wool makes sure to keep your cloth dry.
To sum up, WeeCare Nursing Pads are excellent to have in the beginning with a newborn, since it is often at this time one easy gets rifts or wounds on the nipples.
Tip: If you get rifts/wounds on the nipples then WeeCare Lanolin Ointment is perfect to help the skin healing while keeping the wound moist so thay no scabs are formed (because it really hurts when your baby removes a scab when breastfeeding!)
We can also recommend a wetbag for storing the used nursing pads.
