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.

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

This product is great for pumping/breastfeeding moms! It's a nice baby shower first since they are a little pricy. But they feel so wonderful and help take that soreness and burn out immediately! I used mine longer than it said and kept mine in the refrigerator! I will have these every time I have a baby!!!

Wonderful relief

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

These are amazing. The only thing that I could comfortably put against my sore nipples (any fabric hurt). Very soothing and I was able to reuse them for a few days. They are expensive but worth it for the relief they gave me in the first few weeks of breastfeeding.

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

I recently had a baby and I was nursing him. The first few days were hard because I ended being sore, skin cracking and bleeding. So I decided I would try the product and I ended up loving it!

Decent

Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

These are my go to when the ones by the other brand are not available. Unfortunately these are very thin, the shape is odd so the adhesive does not always work. They also don't cool very well even if stored in the refrigerator.
