    Comments about Tender Care Hydrogel Pads:

    Gave birth to my 4th daughter in May '11, and my nipples flourished like flowers and it was extremely painful, i bought these and quickily slapped them on, what a difference it made. Big help and encouraged me to keep breastfeeding. I still keep some on stock for those weekends when she is constantly nursing. The only two downsides is the shape [...]

          these didn't soothe my sore nipples; unfortunately they were a waste of money. using a good nipple cream was much more effective for me.

          This is great for instant relief during the first few days of breastfeeding. Don't leave them on too long, though! The plastic traps in moisture and can do more damage in the long run.

            These definitely soothed my sore nipples, however the shape is awkward and they leave quite a bit of sticky residue that needs to be cleaned off before feeding and it doesn't come off with water as the directions say. This isn't quite convenient for a first time mom, who can't seem to move fast enough for a hungry baby. But they worked.

              The best way to use the product is to peel the back off and rinse it with cool water and let it sit for a minute then put the ice cold gel pad on your breast. Immediate relief... I have super sore nipples with twins and these pads are a life saver..

                      Comments about Tender Care Hydrogel Pads:

                      The first week or so that I breast fed my son, I had *terribly* sore nipples. While in the hospital, they gave me some of the Lansinoh soothies and they worked wonderfully. When I got home, I bought the Medela gel pads thinking they'd be better quality (I have a Medela pump and love it). Well I was wrong. They don't stick very well. The shape is weird and doesn't contour to my breast. The cooling sensation lasts for about 1 minute and then the pads get really warm. I would definitely recommend the Lansinoh brand instead - much better.
