These pads are the best thing by FAR that I have found for cracked nipples. My 13 month old's teeth gave me a big cut, and these pads are fantastic for soothing after feeding. I leave them on all day, and actually, although the box says they are reusable for 24 hours, I think they last a lot longer. They are still very soothing. The only thing is that I have to take them out when I leave the house because I wear thin bras, and you can see the outline through my shirt. I have another nursing bra with a thick lining, and they work great in that one, but all my others are thing.

I would give this zero stars if possible. Do not use this product for breastfeeding! It provides the perfect environment for thrush to develop, causing you potentially weeks of pain and suffering. I used these from the first day of breastfeeding in the hospital. They were given to me by the lactation consultant for sore/bleeding/damaged nipples. I used them for weeks, and was STILL bleeding at 10 weeks post-partum. I could have healed much, much sooner without these causing a secondary thrush infection. The best treatment for nipples is to keep them dry and exposed to air. The breast shells would be a much better option. Moist wound healing for breastfeeding has not been shown to be effective, and can possibly be harmful. A basic internet search for 'the truth about breastfeeding' will provide several helpful articles about this subject.

These do what they are supposed to

By Kaya

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

My nipples are cracked from nursing and these help to keep them from drying out so they can heal. The only downside is they don't last very long so I have to keep buying more.

If you're looking for some much needed relief, these are your go to. They are light and very comfortable...its nice that they are reusable. However, I do wish there was a way to store them in their package after use.

Was recommended by my lactation consultant. She suggested putting them in the fridge so the cold would help too. Felt really good on my cracked nipples.

Great comfort for sore nipples

By Kelly

from Joliet, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

When breast feeding nipples do get sore, personally I did not find the disposable pads comfortable. And the nipple cream is just ok. But these pads give a cool soothing relief. You can wash them with water, stick them in the fridge to get them cooler. I highly recommend these to help save the nipples!

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Instant soothing relief

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Only good for 24 hours

Best Uses

  • Breastfeeding/sore nipple relief

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

I used Hydrogels when I weaned my 2 month old son from using a nipple shield. They provided instant relief to extremely sore and injured nipples. I combined the usage with Medela Lanolin. Within 1 week I was all healed up!

Very soothing

By Angie

from Hawaii

Verified Buyer

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

Applied one of these after my nipple became cracked and the cool soothing helped ease the pain I also used the lanolin as well and within a few days I felt better. The patch really cut down on Nipple sensitivity and soreness between feeds.
