Cracked, sore and even bleeding nipples are a rite of passage for any breastfeeding mother. Whether it’s your first child or fourth, the pain and discomfort you can experience during breastfeeding can sadly detract from this amazing time of bonding with your baby.
Rite Aid have come to the rescue with two amazing products, the Hydrogel Breast Discs and Hydrogel Nipple Serum. Not only do they help in providing immediate pain relief but they also cool and soothe your sore nipples.
The Hydrogel Breast Discs have been providing breastfeeding mums with relief and are highly regarded because of the benefits they offer which includes:
- The dressings cool and soothe the wound area, at the same time, restoring moisture to the wound.
- The dressings are water based treatments designed to provide a moist environment to accelerate the healing process.
- Unlike traditional dressings, hydrogel dressings do not adhere to the wound, reducing the trauma to the skin when it is removed.
- When applied to a wound, the hydrogel creates a barrier around the wound to protect against bacteria and excessive fluid loss.
3 My Child Readers reviewed the product and this is what they loved most about the Hydrogel Breast Discs:
“I’m not sure what I would do without this product. There is nothing out there that compares to the relief I have when I use the breast discs. My nipples were sore and red and I was constantly having to express and rest. The discs soothed my pain and more importantly have help heal my broken and damaged skin so I can breastfeed again – love them.”
“An easy application disc which can comfortably be worn in-between feeding, without any bulky visible lines under tops. The gel is evenly distributed onto a hygienically sealed disc which can be peeled on and off with ease. Placing the discs into the fridge for an even more cooling soothing relief is an added treat”
“I have been a frequent user of the hydrogel breast discs for both of my children whilst breastfeeding. The instant relief they provide me are a godsend – especially in the first 4-6 weeks after birth. The discs offer a cooling agent to the breast and nipple which allows them to breathe also. They last roughly 24 hours and are quite comfortable. I have been known to give these as gifts to a new mum and they are extremely thankful for them”
Although the Hydrogel Nipple Serum is new to the market, it’s definitely setting a high bar in the standards we have come to expect of Rite Aid Breastfeeding Product Range.
The Hydrogel Nipple Serum soothes severely cracked nipples and is safe to use while breastfeeding. Upon application, the product benefits include:
- The serum helps to cool the skin,
- It creates the ideal environment for healing and restoring your skin’s natural moisture so you can return to breastfeeding sooner.
- It’s non-toxic and safe to use while breastfeeding
Applying the serum at the first signs of reddening or soreness will help you maintain nipple health while your breastfeeding. Our reviewers were very impressed with the serum too, here’s what they had to say:
“I was really excited to try this product as I have been an avid user of the hydrogel breast discs for some time now. There is no doubt that the gel/serum is some sort of liquid magic”
“The serum is something I had not used before and since using it I have found that it is just as good as the breast discs with more of a focus on the nipple itself. Once again it offers relief and cools the nipple down straight away. You do not need a large amount at a time and it doesn’t make a mess all over your bra or feeding top. The serum smells nice and is not overpowering. It is not terribly sticky either. It’s something I would buy and use in the future after having a newborn”
“I would recommend this to any busy, out and about breastfeeding mum. All the benefits of the discs in a jar – it’s liquid gold. It’s easy to apply and the convenience of being able to breastfeed once it is applied is timesaver especially when you have a hungry bub on your hands”
