Breastfeeding is one of the most beautiful and intimate ways moms can bond with their babies. But all too often, those precious moments are derailed by breastfeeding pain.1 The frustration of interruptions in your breastfeeding journey doesn’t just affect you, it affects your baby, too. That’s why we developed Nursicare therapeutic breast pads to help ease pain and ensure continuity in your breastfeeding journey.

Why Nursicare?

Breastfeeding moms can trust Nursicare

As a mom, so many things are out of your control. Easing pain and healing sore, injured nipples from breastfeeding is possible with Nursicare.2 Working to stop pain in breastfeeding sores and on intact skin, our nursing pads are backed by science and recommended by lactation consultants.

The Science

A history of healing behind every pad

Made in the U.S. with PolyMem® technology, Nursicare uses our healing expertise to usher in a new era of breastfeeding pain relief. Nursicare therapeutic breast pads work to provide ultimate healing to breastfeeding mothers with an innovative formulation designed to facilitate healing, relieve pain and control inflammation.2

The unique formulation used in our therapeutic nursing pads provides a mild wound cleanser and soothing moisturizer that work together to provide unrivaled benefits.3

Healing You

Making you a priority, because they’re yours

We know your main priority is taking care of your baby. Ours is taking care of you. Our nursing pads do that by providing you with soothing pain relief and healing, ultimately helping you avoid premature weaning.6

By making you a priority, Nursicare works to give you healing and your baby nourishment, on your own terms.

Prioritize Your Healing


  • Yes. To ensure safety for mothers and babies, Nursicare pads have passed regulatory review for user safety and clearance in all the countries where sold. In addition, PolyMem, the material used in our nursing pads, has been used safely and effectively for over 25 years. Learn more about Polymem dressings at

  • The soothing ingredients in Nursicare pads are released when the pad absorbs fluid. If the pad hasn’t absorbed any milk from the breast and remains dry, it may not be effective. In such a case, it is recommended that you slightly moisten the nipple with water.

  • Although Nursicare pads and materials are safe, we advise wiping all substances off the nipple prior to breastfeeding. Simply wipe the nipple gently with a damp cloth.

  • Nursicare pads can be used as long as desired, provided they are changed as recommended.

  • Nursicare pads are highly absorbent. The pads can usually be used for several days, until they are saturated with fluid, though how quickly this happens may vary from mother to mother. Sometimes, the breast not being used may leak during feeding. It is therefore recommended to remove Nursicare pads from both breasts while breastfeeding to prevent saturation. When the pad does become saturated, throw it out. You will know it’s time when the liquid held inside becomes visible through the labeled side.

  • Nursicare pads contain all the necessary ingredients to reduce pain and heal the nipple wound, so there is no need to add any other treatment, such as a topical cream.

  • You can use the pad until you see that the liquid held inside reaches the edges or is becoming visible through the labeled side.

  • You can buy Nursicare online in the US through this website, at online retailers such as Amazon, or from professional medical distributors.
