Nursing pads for carefree breastfeeding

As a new mother, you and your body need time to get used to breastfeeding. When your breast milk comes in, the body cannot yet properly control the delivery of breast milk, so that milk can be released unexpectedly. But even during the further period of breastfeeding, there can be an undesirable milk flow and thus unpleasant milk stains on the clothing. In order to spare these unpleasant milk stains from breastfeeding mothers, there are breast pads for the bra, which absorb the excess breast milk. This way you always have a good feeling!

Quick question and answer session: the top 3 questions about breast pads

1. How often should you change breast pads?

The breast pads should always be changed when they come into contact with a large amount of breast milk. Accordingly, this happens to every mother as needed - in most cases, however, after breastfeeding.

2. What are the advantages of disposable breast pads?

Disposable nursing pads are narrower than washable nursing pads and are therefore almost invisible under clothing. They are easy to dispose of with household waste after use and therefore do not require any cleaning. The individually packaged nursing pads from NUK can also be easily stowed away on the go.

3. What nursing pads for irritated nipples?

In general and especially with irritated nipples, care should be taken with regard to breast pads that the material is breathable. Adequate air circulation prevents skin irritation and the nipples can better recover from inflammation.

What should you look for in breast pads?

Similar to baby diapers, the material used is important: If the material is not absorbent enough and is already soaked after a small amount of liquid, the nursing pad quickly becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. The result is skin irritation and sore nipples. To avoid this, the NUK Ultra Dry nursing pads and NUK Ultra Dry Comfort nursing pads have an extra absorbent liquid depot. The breathable material allows the air to circulate better. So you can enjoy breastfeeding with your baby in peace and without worrying about unwanted milk stains or sore nipples.

Why NUK breast pads?

Apart from the breathable material, the NUK Ultra Dry Comfort breast pads are modeled on the shape of the female breast. In this way they fit the body perfectly thanks to the shape of the pads. The practical NUK fixation strip keeps the nursing pads securely in place so that the pads cannot slip uncomfortably in the bra. Thanks to the soft materials, the NUK breast pads are particularly gentle on the skin and almost invisible thanks to the smooth outer surface under the clothing. For breastfeeding mothers, the NUK nursing pads therefore offer an inconspicuous protection that brings them carefree through everyday life.
