Where to buy this product
Can I sleep with the Ultra Soft Nursing Pads in my bra?
Yes, many mothers find our pads very absorbent, especially at night. The only thing we would recommend is that you change the pads during the night if they become saturated.
Can I put Lansinoh HPA Lanolin on the pad when I use it?
Yes, this is actually a very good idea. Many lactation consultants advise the mother with very sore nipples to put a generous application of Lansinoh HPA Lanolin directly onto the center of the pad and press gently onto the breast thereby eliminating the need to handle a very sore nipple.
How are the Ultra Soft Nursing Pads different than your other pads?
Our Ultra Soft Nursing pads are thicker because it makes them softer. These pads are actually designed for the later stages of pregnancy or early days of breastfeeding when nipples might be extremely sore or tender. They are specially contoured with gathers that help the pad "cup" over the nipple area to protect it from friction from the pad or clothing. As a result, they are a bit bulky. In contrast, our regular disposable pads are ultra thin and contoured. The Ultra Soft Nursing Pads have the same Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) as our original Disposable Nursing Pads. The SAP is similar to what is in baby diapers, in that it starts as a powder and when the milk soaks into it, it turns into a gel.
