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.

Medela Gel Pads

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

It really did not help with soreness. Not a good reusable item. The gel is cooling but it only lasts a few minutes. Not worth it.

    Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

    I got these for my sore nipples related to a poor latch. They give you a cool refreshing feel when applied. Almost similar to a mild ice pack. I do not like that I need to watch my nipples off prior to feeds, it makes the product inconvenient in that aspect.

      Life savers!

      By First time mommy

      from New Jersey

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

      These things literally saved my life (or actually my nipples) in the first 2 weeks of breastfeeding! They are very convenient because they get cold super quick (just run under cold water for a few sec) and they stay cold and relieve nipples soreness like no other! And you can reuse these for a while. Quick and efficiet is exactly what you need in those first 2 weeks of craziness!
