These knit 100% wool nursing pads have a dart for a more contoured fit and are about 4.75 inches. 2 layers of wool just like the Babee Greens Wool Diaper Cover's wool for more moisture protection. For breathable yet absorbent protection and comfort. Hand wash. Individually made in the USA. Oeko Tex Standard 100 certified yarn.

I was hoping to love wool nursing pads and I do love how comfy they are. But I’m a little disappointed by their performance. If I leak more than just a tiny bit, my shirt will get damp (although it soaked). Also, I don’t find it’s true that these don’t need to get washed frequently. After a day or 2 they smell like sour milk, even after being aired out. At least they’re really easy to hand wash.
These are amazing. Wool breast pads—duh! It’s genius. Moisture wicking, super absorbent, and keeps your breasts and nipples warmer. Especially when you’ve got cold, wet nipples—it’s great to put these back on. These ones in particular are also the only ones I have found that are the right size (many other brands are way too big). These are soft, warm, stupidly easy to take care of. I own two pairs and I rotate one pair each week, while the other pair is being washed. Can’t stress enough how great they are. My go-to baby shower gift now.
These are great. So soft and comfy and easy to care for really. I turned to these when the cotton and bamboo ones were irritating me during a bad case of nipple thrush. Now I have two pairs of these and I alternate them daily and wash maybe once a week. I still wear cotton at night because I find it better at absorbing the overnight when I leak a ton. During the day it’s just a little leakage and these do great for that. But I give them five stars because they they really helped in getting over bad thrush by helping relieve pain and prevent further yeast growth since wool is antimicrobial. (I also used coconut oil and grapefruit seed extract and bleached all the cotton pads).
These are by far my favorite nursing pads, and i tried a few kinds. Babee Greens products are always so soft. They weren't visible through my bra and i couldn't feel them. I leak a lot of milk and was concerned by how thin they are, but their absorbency is great and I've worn them all day without issue.
I found these to be too thin to use while I was nursing my son (I was a heavy leaker). But...he just weaned and as I was preparing my lanacare nursing pads for storage I started wearing these in my regular bra just because I am so used to wool against my skin now and don't like the bra material on my skin. I love them! These would also be great for some women to wear toward the end of pregnancy for light leaking. I just ordered another pair, not just for nursing mamas, great for warmth and modesty too :)
