Nursing Pads (Breast Pads) – Quality, Comfort, and Eco-friendliness

At Carriwell, we produce our own nursing pads (breast pads) in Denmark. Our nursing pads are made from organic cotton in black and white, as well as a blend of organic cotton and silk. This combination ensures not only high quality but also optimal comfort for nursing mothers. It’s important to wash your nursing pads before use to achieve the best absorbency. Silk nursing pads are especially recommended, as silk helps prevent and care for cracked nipples.

The Benefits of Reusable Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)

At Carriwell, we advocate for a greener future. Therefore, we believe it’s better to use reusable nursing pads (breast pads) instead of disposable ones. Reusable nursing pads are not only environmentally friendly but also economical in the long run.

What is a Nursing Pad (Breast Pad)?

A nursing pad (breast pad) is a small cushion placed inside a nursing bra or nursing top to absorb breast milk leaks. Nursing pads are typically made from soft, absorbent materials such as cotton or silk and come in various sizes, shapes, and thicknesses to meet different needs.

Different Types of Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)

Depending on your preferences and needs, you can choose from several types of nursing pads:

Which Type of Reusable Nursing Pad (Breast Pad) Should I Choose?

There is a wide variety of reusable nursing pads (breast pads), so you can find the type that best suits your needs. Materials such as cotton, wool, silk, and bamboo each have their own advantages and disadvantages.

Wool Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)

Wool nursing pads (breast pads) are ideal for keeping breasts warm and absorbing moisture. If you experience heavy leakage, it may be necessary to use an additional, more absorbent pad closest to the breast to avoid soaking through. If you choose a wool nursing pad, you will benefit the most by purchasing breast warmers, which are extra-large nursing pads.

Cotton Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)

Cotton nursing pads (breast pads) are known for their good absorbency, making them suitable for absorbing breast milk. The fabric is soft and comfortable, but can become cold if it gets very wet, so it’s important to change them often.

Silk Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)

Silk nursing pads (breast pads) are a good choice if you have sore or cracked nipples and also want the warming effect of wool. Typically, the innermost layer is silk, while the outer layer is wool. This prevents the wool from coming into direct contact with the nipples and causing further irritation.

Bamboo Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)

Bamboo nursing pads (breast pads) are both soft and comfortable. Bamboo has excellent absorbency and antibacterial properties, making them ideal if you have sores on your nipples.

Why Choose Reusable Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)?

Reusable nursing pads (breast pads) are not only an environmentally friendly choice but also economically advantageous as they can be washed and reused many times. Our organic cotton and silk-based nursing pads are specially designed to provide maximum comfort and absorbency.

Use and Care of Nursing Pads (Breast Pads)

To achieve the best absorbency and hygiene, it’s important to wash your nursing pads (breast pads) regularly. You should change nursing pads when they are wet or filled with breast milk, typically every 2-3 hours or after each feeding. (This can vary depending on your milk production and flow.) This helps keep the skin around the nipples dry and prevents irritation and infections.
