View Full Version : Wool Nursing Pads

Has anyone used the wool nursing pads sold by motherwear (or anyplace else)? It sounds like a good idea, but since I am not breastfeeding yet (due the 21st!) and a first time mom, I don't know!

I'm a soon to be mommy too, and haven't breast before either. But--something to consider...You know how everyone says wool makes you sweat and cotton helps your skin breathe? Well, I've read that one of the number one causes of sore nipples and thus breast feeding problems is breasts not air drying enough, but moisture staying on them and causing irritation... Just a thought. Amy

I bought some of the wool nursing pads after reading posts here that mothers loved them. I have yet to test them (11 days past my due date) but I must say they seem really nice. They are incredibly soft!
