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:

They only last 24 hours and don't stay on very well. A little complicated, especially when you have a thousand other things on your mind. Including your pain! Not worth the $$.

    Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

    I bought these pads because I was in extreme pain and looking for relief. I used them in combination with lanolin per my lactation consultants advice. I was under the impression that these pads would be reusable for an extended period of time verses the competitors 72 hours use of their gel pad. Medela's pads are square shaped making them not conform to the natural shape of the breast. I found that they would roll up subsequently getting ruined and would then have to be thrown away. The two good things about the pads are that they can be rinsed off and they helped keep the lanolin on the nipple when they were in place. Being that they didn't stay in place they didn't provide me the relief I was looking for.

      Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

      This product was okay. As a FTM, breast feeding was a challenge. These pads helped cool don't my cracked nips, but other things like saline rinses and air exposure helped much more than keeping them covered up with the gel pads.

            This product was only cold for a minute. I would rather save my money and use an ice pack. Also, I didn't like that you had to wipe off before feeding. Would not recommend or purchase again.

              i had a really difficult start to breastfeeding. My son was on donor milk in the hospital because I couldn't produce what he needed and he had a short frenulum. I used these, and now it's day 12. My nipples are completely healed and I'm strictly breastfeeding! It's the best feeling and I'm thankful for them. They work best with a little lanolin put on first!

              The products is great. The cost could be cheaper. Also the pads shifted from time to time. May work better if sticky tape was on one side to attach to the bra to stay in place.

                  I used these in the hospital when starting breastfeeding and again due to soreness when the baby started chewing on me a bit. Instant relief, I just used at night and reset after each feeding and I felt like new.

                  As a mom who both pumps and breastfeeds my breasts and nipples are on overtime. These work great to soothe tired and sore nipples.

                  Only thing that would make them better is if they were reusable more than 2 times as theyre kinda pricey.

                        Wasn't impressed with this product. I used hydrogels in the hospital that performed much better than this product. With this product I felt about 5 secs of relief. Disappointing!
