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:

If it wasn't for the hydrogel pads, my journey of breastfeeding would had ended on the third day. Breastfeeding was very uncomfortable due to really sore and sensitive skin, hydrogel pads helps relieve your nipple right away. By the time for the next feeding my breast where fully recovered.

I was introduce to the pads by the lactation consultant at the hospital.

    It saved my nipples from pain and cracking. I love that they are reusable and really help your nipples to heal in between the 2 hours your baby is about to feed again.

    Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

    I purchased these on a recommendation from the Lactation Consultant. The are great for cracked, sore nipples as a result of breastfeeding. The gel pads stay in place and protect the nipple from rubbing or additional irritation. They definitely helped jumpstart the healing process!
