These are an absolute lifesaver for me when my baby arrived. My son was moderately tongue-tied which created difficulties with achieving a proper latch during breastfeeding. The first couple days of breastfeeding were excruciating as a result, and i quickly developed scabs on my nipples. I tried lanolin, aquaphor, the Medela gel pads, Lansinoh Soothies, and these Ameda Gel Pads. I definitely prefer the gel pads over the lanolin and other creams. Of Medela, Lansinoh, and Ameda, the Amedas are by far the best hydrogel pads. After my son's tongue-tie was fixed and we were able to get a good latch, these pads helped heal my nipples in about a day and a half.

Medela Hydrogel - very sticky and can be painful to remove from damaged tissue. Lasted only 1 day for me before they had to be tossed

Lansinoh Soothies - Nice and comforting initially but again, only lasted 1 day. THey are made with glycerin which left a sweet tasting residue on my breasts which had to be carefully washed off before each feeding. I can tell when I missed a spot because my baby would try to lick off any sweet-tasting residue remaining on my breasts.

Ameda Pros
- Long lasting. This is the biggest pro for me by far. They lose their cool stickiness after a day or so of wear, but rinse in warm water and they become much restored. Not 100%, but comforting and usable again. They cost about the same as the Medela and Lansinoh pads but last me 3-4 days, making these much more cost effective than the other brands
- Thicker and more cushiony than other brands
- Plastic sheets protect the pads when not in use. This helps a lot to prevent the pads from picking up dust and losing their stickiness

Ameda Cons:
- they have a distinct smell when first opened.

I like these the best of all the hydrogel pads I've tried (Medela was way too sticky on tender skin for example). They are a good size (though they do shrink up as the week goes on as they lose moisture). You rinse them off after using and put each one back in their own clear plastic liner until next use-- it's nice that they come with a place to keep them. I put them back slightly damp after rinsing, to slow the moisture loss. Sometimes I store them in the fridge for cooling relief. These pads also put a little pressure on the nipple so you don't leak milk ( at least that's true for me). Good price here even adding tax-- a couple dollars cheaper than Babies r Us-- where I live. Ah my punctuation/grammar is horrible but I have infant boy/ girl twins & not a lot of sleep lately! :-)

I have nursed two babies, the first of which was tongue-tied, and as a result developed severely cracked and bleeding nipples. Based on my nipple trauma from my first baby, I had extremely sore nipples for the whole first-month of breastfeeding with the second. These hydrogel pads were the only reason I managed to stick it out until it got better (and it does get better!). I tried every other type of hydrogel pads (Medela, Lanisoh), constant application of lanolin, and even mega doses of painkillers and nothing helped like these pads did. I know they were helping because if a day went by that I didn't use them, my nipples became extremely sore again.

I would definitely recommend these to moms who, even with a good latch, are experiencing nipple soreness. They will get you through those first painful weeks.

***One tip from my lactation consultant -- don't use lanolin at the same time as using these pads, as the lanolin forms a protective barrier that prevents the pads from working their healing magic.

I packed these in my hospital bag before giving birth to my daughter and was thankful for that! My baby had trouble latching on at first, making my nipples sore and cracked. These gel pads were a HUGE help in those early days - if I hadn't had some kind of relief, I might have given up breastfeeding. Not only did these help with my sore nipples, but they were also great when my milk came in and I was engorged. And they're even better if you cool them in the fridge first! Just make sure to gently wash them after each use - if you're nipples have open cracks or sores, you can risk infection by trapping the bacteria between the pad and your breast, only prolonging the healing process. I don't use the pads much anymore now that my daughter and I have established good breastfeeding techniques, but I always keep these on hand just in case!

Definitely better than Medela gel pads. The Medela ones don't stick well. I'm not sure if these beat Soothies, although these do last longer. It's a little hard to write reviews for them because sometimes they helped so much when I was going to give up BFing, and other times no kind of gel pad seemed to help. So I'm not sure if this vague review is useful... Bottom line: If you are postpartum and crying daily about nipple pain like I was, try some kind of gel pad. It's worth it if it sometimes works. Also: definitely try refrigerating them! feels good :)

Since I bought these when desperate for early BFing solutions, here are some tips I had to dig for:
Ice right before breastfeeding,
pump only for 1 day to see if it helps healing(more days and you may get engorged),
use a little polysporin on open wounds,
place fresh cold cabbage leaves on breasts(in the bra) for engorgement (and leave on for a while),
use this method for engorgement that prevents latching:
[...]
Nipple soreness gets better usually by 6 weeks and for me by 8!
I now nurse almost always lying on my side since my baby keeps his latch better. find your best position
