wool nursing pads

I have a little less than 2 weeks to deliver baby #4 and I usually have pretty heavy letdowns. I have a pair of wool nursing pads and I want to know if I should wash them after everytime they are soaked up with milk or do I just let it dry and then use them again? Also If i wash them, do I have to use some type of lanolin soap everytime, what kind?
They are super soft and I want to buy more , I just dont want the high maintenance right now tho.

Re: wool nursing pads

Where do you find the wool pads?... I, also, am curious to know how they should be cared for. Someone here must know!...

Re: wool nursing pads

I use wool nursing pads and have heavy let downs as well. I usually let them dry and then just shake them out before the next use. The milk dries and just shakes away. This is what was on the directions when i bought my wool pads a couple years ago. My wool pads never really get a sour milk smell, they just start getting harder to shake out the dried milk so thats when I know its time to wash them. I love wool nursing pads! Ive always washed mine with Lana lanolin soap so it washes and lanolizes all at the same time...
