Cools on contact. Instant relief for sore nipples. Contoured shape for a comfortable fit. Reusable for up to 24 hours. Includes 4 individually wrapped pads.

Why is breastfeeding such a mystery? You'd think we'd have figured this stuff out by now. I have a marathon nurser with my second baby. She is a round-the-clock boob-a-holic and my nipples became raw like hamburger. I got loads of bad advice. Everything from limiting nursing (bad advice for my milk supply and baby's weight) to diagnosis with thrush (it wasn't thrush). I had fissures in my nipples. I know. It sounds bad because it is bad. These are deep cracks and a kind of scabbing over them. When the scabs got dried out between feedings, the next time the baby would latch on, she would painfully rip them off. It was eye-watering. I found these gel-pads at Target and when I applied Lansinoh and then these pads over it and kept them in place between feedings, the cracks and fissures began to heal. Thank goodness because I was really starting to question whether I could breastfeed while in that much pain. So if you have scabs and major pain, try these with the Lansinoh for a day or two. I am sure things will improve. Hang in there, mom.

I used the lansinoh soothies for my first daughter when I was in terrible pain and saw relief almost immediately. This time around with my second I just auto ordered those and started using them and again felt relief during those first few days of breastfeeding.

But I saw these on Amazon as well as thought I'd give them a try and this was my experience:
1 - Awkward shape: These are square and our breasts are round. Right away, there's a construction problem. They don't quite stick on as well as the lansinoh ones.

2 - Saw no improvement: I'm not sure why but I used these first and saw no relief until I used the lansinoh soothies.

3 - Not cold on contact: One of the best things around the lansinoh soothies was they once you take them off and before reusing they get cold so when you put them back on there's a really nice cold feeling that's relieving.

4 - No case/cover: The lansinoh soothies have a case/disc where you can place the soothies while breastfeeding before reusing which these don't have so you really have to start thinking about where to put them while you're nursing.

These gel pads work pretty well. My nipples were really raw and sore and these really helped with the pain when I nursed my baby. But you can only wear each pair for 24 hours. So the package only lasts you two days. Soothies, on the other hand, are reusable for up to 3 weeks and are comparable in cost. I'd recommend those instead.

I bought this product in hopes that it would help heal my badly damaged nipples. I just started using the product so I'm not sure if they will really work for that. I can say that I put them in the freezer, and it did help with the pain when putting my bra back on after nursing (even if only temporarily - but it's that first few minutes when I put the bra back on that hurt the worst anyway).

The biggest thing I wanted to share though is that you can save a lot of money by cutting each pad into four squares... you only need it to cover the sore part of your nipple, so there's no reason to use the large pad for covering part of your breast too. So for every gel pad, you can really get 4 pads out of it!

I used the hydrogel pads but they only worked for about five minutes. I left them on but they didnt make a difference with the pain.

I am a breast feeding baby number and wish I had thought about these or purchased these for baby number 1. For each child there was always a stage where they gummed me or I would pump myself raw and the nipples which itch and be excoriated. After 24-48 hours of these pads, I was healed and feeling great!

The HydroGel pads cools upon contact, however, the cooling sensation dissipates rapidly. I only wish the cooling sensation lasted longer.
