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.

      As a first time mother, I didn't know what to expect when breast feeding. I never realized how bad my nipples would hurt. These pads provided immediate relief and were easy to use.

        Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

        I was given these at the hospital to help sooth bleeding nipples. I was so very close to giving up on breast feeding because the pain and discomfort was so intense, the nurse brought these in for me and immediately apon putting them on I was comforted. The cooling sensation was a great relief. I sent my mom to buy more from the store so I had backnup when I was home from hospital.

        Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

        The packaging is a bit misleading. It says reusable, which is the reason I chose these over less expensive others. They are reusable only for a 24 hour period then you throw them away. You have to wet the product before using which did make them nice and cool and relieving, but gets to your shirt a bit wet in the process. The coolness wore off over a time but they did give a nice barrier to my bra.

            They feel great but unless you wear them with a bra that's snug to your nipples they tend to peel off.
