Therapeutic breast pads for breastfeeding mums to soothe and heal sore cracked nipples.


Testimonials from New Zealand Midwives & Lactation Consultants…

Nursicare pads are amazing! They keep the nipple warm and dry, seems to allow natural air flow which helps the healing process but also catches the milk. I saw some pretty significant nipple damage heal up in days once we changed over to Nursicare pads!
Highly recommended! 5/5

Women in my care reported very quick healing and appeared to have a higher success rate of continued breast feeding. They did report that any milk leakage onto the pad lessened the effectiveness and they needed additional products for absorbancy but overall I saw a positive response. 4/5

My colleague kindly gave me a set of these pads for my daughter, who had cracked, bleeding nipples. They were FANTASTIC ! In 24 hours of use, and withholding breastfeeds, there was a marked improvement.I am very keen to get all the relevant information about them; cost, where/when will they be able to obtain them, and directions for use please. After such amazing results, I really need to get my hands on these pads ASAP.

Breast is best for you and your baby.

As a natural part of a motherhood, breastfeeding is your choice but swollen painful breasts can force some mothers to have to stop breastfeeding altogether. It shouldn’t have to be painful and susceptible to sores.

Safe for you – Safe for your baby

Where mums and babies are concerned, safety has to be a top priority. Nursicare products meet all required international safety standards and our pads have passed all relevant regulatory reviews and clearances in the countries where they are marketed.


Nursicare’s unique ingredients work together, giving nursing mums reusable relief for swollen and sore nipples.


How Nursicare Works

Nursicare Therapeutic Breast Pads are made with PolyMem, a  unique, drug-free formulation containing 3 components:

  • a superabsorbent
  • a wound cleanser
  • a moisturiser

Used by medical professionals, PolyMem's combination of a superabsorbent, wound cleanser and moisturiser creates an optimal healing environment to accelerate wound healing and reduce pain.

When placed on the sore nipple, the ingredients cooperate in synergy to reduce pain and inflammation and support the healing process.

  1. The pads absorb fluid and gently expand to establish full contact with the wound bed.

  2. The built-in cleanser helps keep the wound bed clean and removes the damaged tissue.

  3. Glycerin, the moisturizer in Nursicare, contributes to an optimal environment to heal the nipples and prevent the pads from sticking to skin.

  4. The unique features of PolyMem combine to make the Nursicare pad not only extremely comfortable, but also help reduce inflammation, thus addressing both persistent and procedural wound pain.

  5. The superabsorbent pulls in fluid from the nipple and locks it into the Nursicare pad, helping keep fluid out of the wound bed.

  6. The external film controls the evaporation process and protects the nipple wound from external contamination.


How to Use Nursicare



Q. Is Nursicare safe for babies?

A. Nursicare pads have met appropriate international standards for safety and effectiveness.  Nursicare pads have passed regulatory review and clearance in all the countries where marketed. PolyMem products have been used for over 25 years safely and effectively.


Q. Is there a need to wash the nipple prior to breastfeeding?

A. Although 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.


Q. Is it recommended to use other products or treatments in combination with Nursicare to treat the nipples?

A. Nursicare pads contain all the necessary ingredients to 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?

A. The 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? 

A. Mothers 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 mother.
