these are the breast pads that I use and love... and within my circle of friends these are the 'must haves'
LANACare Original Wool Nursing Pads - Nurtured Family
These incredibly soft and soothingly comfortable nursing pads provide the best conditions for successful breastfeeding. This original style features a double layer of wool, which is sufficient for most women's needs and they dry more quickly than the Ekstra version. Most women need only 2 pairs for the entire nursing period. When one pair feels wet, let it dry while wearing the second pair. Lanolin's cleansing properties keep the wool fresh and hygienic. The wool can absorb up to 40% of its weight without feeling wet. When the pads do feel wet, they're warm, not cold and clammy as with cotton or disposable pads. Your skin is kept dry and able to breathe, allowing sore nipples to heal. Scandinavian midwives have, for centuries, advised mothers to protect their breasts from wind and cold to prevent plugged ducts and mastitis. Larger sizes give protective coverage over greater a portion of the breast. When needed, wash by hand in lukewarm water with mild hair shampoo, alternating with LANACare 20% Lanolin-Soap. LANACare's lanolin-replenishing soap has a much higher lanolin content than most other wool-washes and will keep your pads feeling soft and soothing.
Even though I did have heavy let down I didn't have to wash them every day or anything, and I had woolie wash that smelled sooo good and just let them sit in my bathroom sink in it a d squeezed... it took like a minute and made my whole bathroom smell good too, lol. I also never had thrush or mastitis or any other BFing issue.
