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.

    I had to put it in the fridge to prevent sticking and it's only helpful while it's cold. However, the relief it did provide made a big difference.

    These were recommended to me in the hospital to alleviate nipple discomfort due to breastfeeding. They are excellent! They soothe the area and you can put them in The fridge for a bit while pumping or breastfeeding, which helps with the pain.

    It is definitely good when you have cracker nipple. Since the nipple is so sensitive it helps with touching sensation

    Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

    As a mommy of two who needed quick relief from the soreness of cluster feeding from her newborn, this was the first product I ran out and got to help me. I know that using your own breast milk will help heal sore, dry, and cracked nipples quickly but in between feedings you need something to keep you going, this is it. You can actually wear a bra without the pain of your clothes brushing against already sore nipples thus further aggravating it. Highly recommended, wish there were more in the package for the price.
