Question about wool nursing pads
Am I supposed to lanolize wool nursing pads? Dumb question, I know, but I lightly lanolized them and am experiencing leaking. Is it because I didn't lanolize enough, or because I lanolized in the first place?

Re: Question about wool nursing pads
This is also posted in the LANA thread, I thought it applied here too:

Buy a good wool wash bar like the one from Suds and Dudz. They take a while to "break in". I also put spray lanolin on one side of them only. I place the lanolized side away from me towards my bra. That way they absorb when I let down and then they repel on the clothing side. I have two pair of the smalls and I had concerns in the beginning but now nothing could get through those babies! Oh, I forgot, the way to remember which side to place towards my body (the unlanolized side) I place a dot with a black majic marker.
