Breast-Feeding

Every breast-feeding mother wants breast-feeding to be a positive experience for her and her baby. LANACare nursing pads have been invented and patented by Jeannette Almström. It is a unique and very benificial product for breastfeedingv made in organic soft merino wool. LANACare nursing pads provide the best conditions for successful breast-feeding. They are incredibly soft and gentle. LANACare Woolen nursing pads help to keep the breasts warm and protected against cold or wind, therefore recommended to use all year round. Natural warmth of the wool stimulates blood circulation and lactation processes, providing soothing relief in most breastfeeding problems. Even when the nursing pads are wet they still feel warm and dry due to wool ability to absorb moist. In that way LANACare nursing pads allow the skin to breathe and remain dry, allowing sore nipples to heal. LANACare nursing pads contain natural lanolin, perfectly soothing sore nipples. Lanolin’s cleansing properties keep the wool fresh and hygienic. Most women need only 2 pairs for the entire nursing period – when your pads feel wet, or at least daily, let them dry on a dry heat source (as radiator) while wearing a second pair. It is recommended to use a size that covers the whole breast.

Nursing pads care

Wash by hand in lukewarm water with LANACare Lanolin Soap to replenish the lanolin content of the wool. Use just enough soap to keep the water mildly sudsy. Move the pads gently in the water, then let them soak in the water for 5-10 minutes. Rinse in lukewarm water. Always use lukewarm water when washing and rinsing wool. Both hot and cold water can shock the wool fibers, resulting in shrinking and felting of the wool. Place or roll your pads into a towel, pressing out the excess water. Give the pads a quick, brisk shake to help them regain their form and elasticity. Lay pads to dry, preferably over a mild heat source. When you are suffering from thrush it is important to sterilize the pads before using them. It has been shown that placing your woolen pads, directly after washing (dripping wet), in a microwave oven on high for 2 minutes removes all bacteria. Placing the washed pads in an oven at 100 degrees C (212 degrees F) for 10 minutes will remove yeast spores.  (Always make sure your pads are wet when placed in either a microwave or oven – they will otherwise burn & turn brown!)
