The Importance of Cotton in Nursing Pads
NuAngel, Inc., is a U.S. manufacturer of quality products for mothers and infants. "Nu" in NuAngel represents nursing, nutrition, and new. "Angel" represents the belief that babies are precious angels and the most valuable gifts their parents will ever receive. NuAngel was founded in 1990 by Teresa Carroll, a Registered Dietitian, an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant, and three-time nursing mother. She was serving as a State Lactation Consultant and ordering breastfeeding products when she realized the need for quality products at reasonable prices.
NuAngel understands the importance of what is needed in a nursing pad. Nursing pads should allow as much air circulation to the nipple as possible. This helps to keep the skin healthy and decreases the possibility of soreness. Health experts recommend the use of 100% cotton washable nursing pads and pads without the use of plastic or non-breathable water-proof liners. Cotton is breathable, absorbent, naturally hypoallergenic, and comfortable. This is the reason NuAngel manufactures a washable natural cotton nursing pad.
Understanding the importance of cotton, NuAngel also patented a biodegradable disposable nursing pads made with a layer of cotton next to the skin. The NuAngel Biodegradable Disposable Pads are different from other disposable pads. Most disposable nursing pads are made from the same materials as disposable baby diapers and sanitary pads. NuAngel Biodegradable Disposable Nursing Pads are made from three unique layers without the use of super absorbent polymers (SAP’s). These are not used because as the gels swell there is less pad breathability and the gels can leak back on the breast. NuAngel offers two discrete designs, a flower shape (60 count package) and a shell shape (30 count package). All products are award-winning!
