Perfect for fast healing
These are a lifesaver for any nipple damage with newborns. Healed my crack and abrasion in less than 48 hours. Fast dispatch is so great too
Review by Claire
Literally the best product out there for any mother that suffer sore, cracked nipples.

I found then much better than the traditional lanolin.

Really worth buying a couple packs as a new Mum or for a new Mum to be
Review by Chan
A lifesaver
These discs are amazing, baby girl hammered my nipples over the holiday season and they were looking sad and traumatised, after one day using these they are looking and feeling as good as new!! I wish I had got these sooner and will definitely be recommending them to any new and to be Breastfeeding mums!!
Review by Dominique
Breastfeeding MUST HAVE
At my baby shower was blessed to have a friend buy these for me, since then I've ordered several more boxes - they absorb quite a bit of leakage AND give your nipples such a treat.
Review by Jujumoo
Must Have!! amazing
These are an absolute must have if you are breastfeeding! I've just had my third little girl years apart from my other two... I can honestly say the difference these gel pads have made to my breastfeeding experience has been incredible.
Soothing, cool when popped on, eases painful nipples.
Review by Dominique
These breast discs are amazingly soothing. Being a FTM my breasts were so sore and I started getting cracked nipples which wasn't helped by my baby's lip tie (which has since been sorted) but these were a godsend and I'm already recommending them to friends who are pregnant so they have some on hand ready to go!
Review by Emily
A must-have
Birthcare for my first child gave me these to use in the first few days. A god send. I found them on this website and ordered more. Two years later,, about to give birth to my second child I ordered more and again these were amazing. Better than using a cream as nipples are protected from fabric as well, and given my wee one had latch issues, these helped my nipples when they were grazed, cracked and bleeding but I was not willing to give up on breastfeeding. Can also cut them in half if you want the packet to go a little further :)
Review by Kat
Really speeds healing and relief
Everyone should get some of these. They are so soothing and really sped up the recovery of my really cracked nipples. Had felt like I wasn't getting anywhere with using lanolin cream. Once I used these gel pads I saw a dramatic improvement in a really short time. I was stoked and my midwife was impressed too. I gave some to my sister-I-L. She initially didn't think that she had enough of a reason to use them. I insisted she tried them, the next day I got an excited text message saying that they were amazing!! Took the discomfort of getting latching sorted away.
Review by Sarah
sooooooooothing! aaaaaaaaaah
So soothing for swollen sore and/or cracked nipples. Especially if you put them in the fridge first! Great for new mothers in those first few weeks of breast feeding.
Review by Karley
Best product ever
These really were AMAZING - as a first time mum I really struggled with breastfeeding and it seemed like all my son wanted to do was feed feed feed in those early days. My nipples cracked, had ridges and were bleeding I then got nipple thrush followed by mastitis. It got so bad that I dreaded feeding him and cried through it. When my sister bought over a box of these it really was a god send and if it wasn't for them I'm sure I would have given up breast feeding. I intend on buying these to add to baby shower gifts for girlfriends!!!

rite aid hydrogel breast pads
What everyone above says! one word- incredible!
Review by Jen
lifesaving product
I was having a really hard time with my first baby with what I called my 'crater' in my left nipple. I had tried everything and nothing worked, the pain was so bad I was cringing everytime I had to feed my little boy. I endured 8 weeks of this before I came across this wonderful product! It only took a week for my nipple to heal using these discs 24/7 finally relief and now 8 months later I love breastfeeding my boy. If I hadn't of known about these discs I would have stopped feeding him at 8 weeks...what else can I say these are fabulous!
Review by lisa
A must for breast feeding!
These discs are worth their weight in gold... I used my first disc after my son had 'attacked' my nipples for 2 days and they provided instant relief from pain and helped reduce cracking etc such that the next feed was relatively painless!! I totally recommend storing them in the fridge for that extra relief.
Review by Pip
Can't rave enough about these
I didn't have these with my first child and I had weeks and weeks of tears and anguish. I was very nervous with my second child that I would have as bad a time as I did with the first and ensured I have every product possible available to help relieve the pain of early feeding. As expected I had trouble again but THIS TIME I tried the hydrogel pads and they truly were amazing. They kept the nipples soft and hydrated, whereas the cotton pads took away a lot of moisture. Even though it still took me some weeks before I was entirely pain free, these made feeding so much more enjoyable and bearable. I also gave these to a friend who just about gave up breastfeeding and these kept her going. You've just got to try them.
Review by Kelly
Best product ever
Without the Hydrogel breast discs, I would not have been able to keep breastfeeding. Really helped with healing and soothing while I was just learning to breastfeed with my first baby. SO good. Would suggest buying a pack with a friend who is also pregnant then halve them, you may get the hang of feeding quickly and not need the whole pack
Review by Cassie
Brilliant product!
Without these I think I would've given up breastfeeding. I had badly cracked nipples and other breast-pads took nipple tissue off with them every time they were removed. The hydrogel discs got me through the bad times. Thanks Franny for sending them to me immediately - great service for desperate Mums.
Review by Melz
Love these
I love these hydrogel disks. They provided so much relief after suffering from 4 bouts of mastitis. Lovely and cooling and very soothing. Definitely try these if you have any nipple problems. I had the best service from Breastmates. Franny answered all my questions. Would highly recommend.
Review by Renee
Life savers
These are amazing, they are the only reason i could continue to breast feed my daughter, i had so much pain, and when my daughter was 8 weeks old i started to use them, and i was able to breast feed without having to use the pump, highly recommend!!!
Review by Rachelle
Love, love love these! Such a relief and you only need one per nipple per 24 hours so you don't go through them too fast. Every time I put one on I have a big sigh of relief, cant recommend them more!!!
Review by Rebecca
Life savers
After months of feeding problems with our second baby I cannot recommend these enough, I have just finished using them, fingers crossed and they have seen us though some really rough times with thrush and mastitis effecting my nipples. These breastpads saved the day by keeping my nipples as healthy as possible and giving them a chance to recover and now finally resemble their former selves Thank you Frances for the continuing supply and I have told everyone I know that they would help - hope this helps you
Review by Sara
impressed after 1 day
just like to say how awesome the hydrojel nipple soothing breastpads are. completely healed after just 1 day of using them. My areola and nipples were cracked and bleeding and now you cant even tell what happened to them.
Review by SR
Best thing out!!
After a really hard time with nipple damage/Raynauds etc and breastfeeding being pretty hard work for a start with my firstborn, got a pack of these in hopes of fending that off and having a better time with #2. Started using them pretty much straight away, and they've made all the difference in the world - no ripping nipple tissue off attached to breast pads, etc - SO much better, will be recommending them to all and sundry. Fantastic product, thanks Franny for stocking it!!
Review by Katharine
These are great, I have very small nipples and they get very red and sore. These breast pads are great, very nice and cooling!
Review by Nicola
Hydrogel Breast Pads
When I had my last baby I had huge wide cracks on the outside of each of my nipples due to problems latching, my lactation consultant put me on to these and they were just awesome. Would recomend to all new breastfeeding mothers, in fact I got some for my sister and she thinks they're great too:)
Review by Kelly
Hydro Gel Breast Pads
These pads saved my breastfeeding. Had a fissure (big slit wound) on side of one nipple due to bad latching first few days. It was excruciting to latch for 4 weeks used these pads and within two days the wound looked healthier. One week later it was no longer painful to latch. Definately saved me and my baby. Am recommending to every one I know.

Hydro Gel Brest pads
Fantastic product. I was so sore I couldnt even stand having a top on let alone wear a bra. The relief this product gave was amazing. My top product to recommend to new mums breastfeeding.
Review by Donna
Heaven sent!
These pads were absoloutely amazing when my son was born. I had infected nips and thrush that went undiagnosed for six weeks, and if it wasn't for these life savers I don't think I could have continued breast feeding. 8.5 months on and I'm still going so if you have sore nips in those early days I recommend these over any cream you can buy on the market!
Review by Belinda
hydrogel breast discs
This product is FANTASTIC they make feeding so much more comfortable and easier for Mum (and therefore baby) cannot recommend this product enough!
Review by Angela
Hydrogel breast pads
Wow what a relief these pads were to sore, cracked nipples! These pads weren't around when I had my other 2 kids and wish they were! Highly recommend these, especially when starting out in those early weeks with lots of feeds. They were a sanity savour for me.
Review by Michelle
Hydrogel breast pads
These were definitely the best thing I've found for keeping sore / cracked nipples more comfortable!
Review by Caroline
Can't Praise that enough
This product was amazing and heaven sent when I was trying to feed my baby. I'm a first time mom and I had no idea on how hard breastfeeding can be. My nipples were so sore I cried through the entire feeding - and only god knows if she was feeding too as I was so tense. Heard of the hydrogel, called Frances and begged for help. Frances was amazing on helping and when the hydrogel discs arrived I could notice the difference immediately. Feeding became easier by the minute and now I can feed her on both breasts with no pain at all. I love the fact that I can feed my daughter without the fearful look in my eyes. Can't recommend enough!
Review by Tatiana
Hydrogel Breast Pads
I highly recommend these breast pads for those sore, dry, bleeding, cracked nipples. I came across them on the website and having had two children already knew what I was in for when it came to breastfeeding. These pads are fantastic placed in the freezer whilst I showered then put them on to work their magic! They healed my nipples much faster than any other cream I had used previously. Love this product!!!!
