How to Use Nursicare
1. Wipe your nipple
Prior to first using a new Nursicare pad,
the nipple and surrounding area needs to wipe with a cloth – slightly wet
with water. The water moisture helps activate ingredients contained in
the Nursicare pad to stimulate healing. Keep the
skin and nipple wet.
2. Position the Pad
Take the sterile Nursicare pad from the
packaging and position it inside your bra, with the printed label facing
outwards and plain side touching your nipple. Centre the pad over the nipple
3. Nurse your Baby
Once the time comes to pump or nurse, remove the pad
and place it onto a clean surface, ensuring the unlabelled side facing up.
Before nursing or using a breast pump, wipe the breast clean with a cloth or towelette moistened with water or the mothers’ milk.
Nursicare has developed special disposable pads, designed
to be used multiple times. When finishing breastfeeding or pumping, simply
reapply the pad back into position.
5. Change the pad
Over time the pad becomes saturated, the liquid held inside will
become visible through the labelled side. Dispose of the pad before the fluid
reaches the edge. Usually you only have to replace pads every few days, but
each mum is different. Check each time the pad is removed for feeding or pumping.
Please do not wash pads as it can remove the vital ingredients within.

years safely and effectively.
Q. Is there a need to wash the nipple prior to breastfeeding?
Nursicare pads and materials are safe,
health authorities advise wiping all substances off the nipple prior to breast
feeding. Simply wipe the nipple gently with a moist cloth.

with Nursicare to treat the nipples?

reduce pain and heal the wound. Therefore there is no need to add
any other treatments. Topical treatments are not needed in conjunction with Nursicare.
Q. If I don’t feel any pain relief after 24 hours, what should I do?
soothing ingredients in Nursicare pads are released
when the pad absorbs fluid. In case the pad didn’t absorb any milk from the
breast and remained “dry”, it is recommended to slightly moisten the nipple
with breast milk or water. (See instructions for use).
Q. How long should I keep using pads to prevent pain?
may continue to use Nursicare pads as long as
desired, provided they change the pads as instructed.
Please read the instructions for use inside the box before using the pad.
Q. The pad becomes saturated with fluid very quickly. What should I do?
A. Nursicare pads have a high absorption capability. The pads
can be used for several days until saturated with fluids. In most cases the
serious ‘dripping’ (called reflux) happens during breastfeeding. Therefore, it
is recommended to remove Nursicare pads from both
breasts while breastfeeding. This step will prevent fluid from saturating the
pads. (See instructions for use). The milk dripping rate varies from mother to
