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 you get burning nipples from breastfeeding, like I do, these are awesome. They're too pricey, or I'd use them all the time. But wow - once you put them on, you don't feel the pain until you start feeding again!

    Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

    Great for sore nipples after breastfeeding! Provided relief and comfort! I usually have on between each feeding! Granted, I have a 1 month old newborn so they only stay on for about 2 hours at a time but I was able to get many uses out of them!

      Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

      These have been a lifesaver for me and may be one of the only reasons other than willpower which kept me breast feeding. I wanted to quit after 2 weeks due to sore, cracked, dry, and bleeding nipples. These pads were amazing and helped to soothe the discomfort. I wear them constantly. It says to use new pads after 24 hrs but I typically use them for another 24-48 hours as long as they are clean and intact. They help prevent the rubbing of dry nipples against your bra too. Highly recommend. They sometimes fall out of my night bra when sleeping otherwise they remain in place.

      Comments about Medela Tender Care HydroGel Pads:

      As far as pain relief, these did their job. Especially if you out the, in the refrigerator. One thing I didn't like was that they were supposed to be kept moist, which I think seriously slowed the healing process. I ended up buying a similar product that kept the nipples dry, but still offered the comfort I needed. They also didn't always lady 24 hours and kind of turned mushy (the plastic backing fell of a few times, so it was just slimy gel).

        This ate amazing. I alternate between these and the cream. These are great especially if you cut them in half, to sooth the sore nipples from feeding/pumping. They cool for instant relief. I usually use mine all day long and they keep there stickiness

                Learning to breastfeeding is a bit overwhelming and very painful. I was cracked and raw- but these offered the best relief! The only drawback is that one pair only last a day or two. But still worth the money for the relief they provide.

                  Wet them first, then apply. It definitely helps ease the irritation of first feedings. The little plastic shields get sticky after the first few uses. Definitely buy a few of them.

                    The first few weeks of breastfeeding are certainly the hardest. I was so thankful to have these to soothe and protect me to make breastfeeding successful.
