If even your clothes make your nipples hurt than try a pair of soothing Medela Hydrogel Pads. Hydrogel pads offer cooling against your skin while protecting it from outside irritants, adding an extra layer of protection to your already tender nipples. Keeping nipples covered can help keep germs out of cracked, chapped and irritated skin. Hydrogels are reusable for up to 24 hours and can easily be removed and reapplied for baby’s next feeding. Hydrogels can also be used in conjunction with Lanolin or nipple butter. One box contains 4 pairs of Hydrogel Pads.
