If you're breastfeeding and have sore or cracked nipples, Medela hydrogel pads support healing and offer instant, soothing relief.
While new mums are often told that breastfeeding shouldn't hurt, in reality it may take a while for your nipples to get used to the frequency and length of your newborn's feeds. This, combined with all the hormonal changes going on in your body in the early days after the birth means you can get sensitive or sore nipples. Hydrogel pads can help by offering instant soothing and cooling nipple pain relief. They can also protect your nipples from clothing rubbing against them and support the healing process if your skin is damaged.
