Breast milk does not only flow while your baby is drinking. Besides nursing, milk will leak out unintentionally. Clothes will often be soppy which is uncomfortable for women and even harms their health. The moist climate supports the risk of an inflammation of the nipples (mastitis) and mycosos. A good nursing pad will protect you against that. It will soak up your breast milk and keep them dry and healthy. Thus you will long have joy while nursing and keep up with everything at home and while being on the go without worrying.
What makes for a good nursing pad?
A high-quality inlay removes the breast milk very fast, prevents a reflow and provides hygiene and a pleasant feeling. Pads which are permeable to air will help your skin to breathe. Get an overview in our online shop.
Disposable nursing pads: Pads, such as models by Lansinoh have a superabsorbent core made of paper pulp and plastic pellets. The core is able to bind bigger milk quantities. The inlay needs to be fixed with a sticky tape in your bra. After usage you can just throw it into your household garbage. Washing them will not be necessary anymore about which mothers who are often on the go will be very happy.
Washable nursing pads: A lot of washable models consist of cotton, wool or silk. Manufacturers like to use these natural fibres since they are absorbent, breathable and skin-friendly. Wool and silk are anti-inflammatory and calming to the skin, according to experience, of which a lot of women benefit since they tend to have inflamed nipples. Please definitely read the care labels for products made of wool or silk. They might lose their positive characteristics and shrink the natural fibres. Cotton on the other hand is uncomplicated in caring and even endures a hot water cycle in the washing machine. Washable inlays can also be found in combination of natural fibres with breathable synthetic fibres. That mix increases the absorptivity and makes the product even more robust. The advantages of washable inlays are obvious: As you probably plan to use the article for a longer period of time, you will reduce garbage and save money. You should at least buy three pairs of inlays to have some to change. According to the milk flow you will need more than three pair.
Nursing pads made of silicone: While the above mentioned inlays soak up the milk exiting, silicone inlays have another principle. They use a bit of pressure and thus prevent milk from exiting. Therefore you have to put the thin, breathable silicone pad onto your nipples. They often sit so safe that you do not even need a bra. After using them you can wash them with ph-neutral soap. Please consider the manufacturer’s care labels. Thus you will treat the environment and your purse with care.
