Cloth Nursing Pads

Cloth--Available in a variety of fabrics, our cloth nursing pads are the natural and environmentally safe alternative to disposable pads for lactating mothers.  Cloth nursing pads measure approximately 5" in diameter.  Choose a waterproof backing of PUL or Fleece, or keep them un-lined for improved breathability.  Great, even for heavy let-down.  Machine washable. 
Wool--Our recycled wool nursing pads are the economical, natural and environmentally safe alternative to disposable pads for lactating mothers.  These nursing pads are made from two layers of soft recycled wool.  They are then thoroughly lanolized, allowing them to absorb up to 40% of their own weight before feeling wet. As wool absorbs moisture, the lanolin is converted to lanolin-soap, creating an antibacterial effect, keeping the wool fresh, clean and hygienic.

Most women find that two pairs of our wool nursing pads are all they'll ever need. When one pair becomes wet, let it dry while wearing the other pair. As it dries, the lanolin is activated to clean the wool. The moisture is evaporated leaving behind only the milk solids.  This, over time, depending upon how much leakage you have, will cause the center of the pad feel "stiff" with white powdery milk spots, indicating they need to be washed.  See wool care instructions on our FAQ page.
