  • What does the “BPA and BPS Free” Icon on your packaging mean?

    The chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) is widely known to be a hormone disrupter. Acting like an estrogen imposter, BPA has been linked to cancer, type 2 diabetes, depression, heart disease and a number of other ailments. BPA can be especially dangerous in pregnancy, infancy and childhood – so much so that many governments around the world have banned BPA in the production of baby bottles (as well as other products).

    The chemical bisphenol-S (BPS) is used as a plasticizer by some manufacturers and, in many cases, has been used to replace BPA. BPS is also a hormone disrupter, but is currently allowed for the production of baby bottles and similar products.

    Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh, we have taken proactive measures to ensure our Lansinoh® mOmma® bottles with NaturalWave® Nipples are BPA and BPS free.

    Is Lansinoh® Soothies®  Gel Pads BPA and BPS Free?

    Yes! Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh, we have taken proactive measures to ensure Lansinoh® Soothies® Gel Pads is both BPA and BPS Free.

    Why can I only use Soothies® by Lansinoh® Gel Pads for three weeks total?

    The recommended usage of any gel pads is three weeks total. If you are experiencing soreness or pain for longer, you should seek the advice of a lactation consultant, breastfeeding educator or healthcare provider to understand and correct what’s causing the discomfort.

    My pad has crusty parts—should I throw it away?

    If the pad becomes dirty or has crusty areas, use a clean, damp (not wet) cloth as needed to clean it.  This may also lengthen the life of the pad.  

    Can I use medicinal ointment/creams with Soothies® by Lansinoh® Gel Pads?

    Be sure to follow your physician’s instructions for usage with medicinal or other ointments. If your prescribing healthcare provider has given the ok to use the ointment with Soothies® by Lansinoh Gel Pads, we recommend putting on a very thin layer and then letting it absorb into your skin prior to applying Soothies® by Lansinoh® Gel Pads on top.

    Can I use Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin with Soothies® by Lansinoh® Gel Pads?

    We do not recommend using HPA® Lanolin with Soothies by Lansinoh® Gel Pads because they are both designed to promote soothing relief and we do not want the surface to be too moist as maceration can occur.  However, if there is residual HPA® Lanolin on your breasts when you use Soothies®, do not be alarmed.  No reactions will occur with the glycerin and the lanolin.

    Why do I need to wash my breast after removing Soothies® by Lansinoh® Gel Pads before breastfeeding?

    We recommend you gently wipe or cleanse your breast prior to breastfeeding to remove any gel residue or debris that may have gotten stuck to the gel pad in between usage.

    What should I do if my baby ate part of my Soothies® by Lansinoh Gel Pads?

    Soothies are made of water, vegetable based glycerin, and a non-toxic binding agent called Polyacrylamide. If your baby ate a portion of your gel pad, it will dissolve and come out through baby’s stool. To be safe, please contact your baby’s primary healthcare provider. 

    What are the ingredients in Soothies® by Lansinoh® Gel Pads?

    Soothies are composed of vegetable based glycerin, water, and polyacrylamide - all of which are nontoxic to mother and baby. Soothies® are specifically formulated with 17½% water and 65% glycerin.

    Comments about Lansinoh Soothies® Gel Pads:

    I got these from a nurse at the hospital I did not use them until I got home though. I love them. I wish I knew about these with my first born. They instantly relieve and cool on contact and provide relief through the entire 72 hour wear time! I also purchased the medela brand cooling pads before I went to the hospital but just started using them after these were gone and there is just no comparison. The lansinoh work 100 times better. They don't hurt to take off as I have found the medela ones can hurt when you take them off. I highly recommend these for the sensitive first few weeks of breastfeeding . Love! Thanks for such a great product!

    This product saved me in the beginning. I know they say that breast-feeding is not supposed to hurt, but it does, I had blisters and was bleeding. Without these I wouldn't have been able to continue. Storing these in the freezer was great and provided even more relief!

    I used this product the first 2 weeks of breastfeeding. Initially the cooling is great and they adhere nicely. But the coolness only lasts a couple of minutes.

    A must have in your hospital bag and the first two weeks!

    About Me Medical Professional

    Comments about Lansinoh Soothies® Gel Pads:

    Soothies are an absolute must have in a breastfeeding woman's hospital bag as well as the first few weeks of breastfeeding. As a breastfeeding professional, they are my first must have recommendation to all my clients that complain of tender, sore or cracked nipples...(yes, they can crack). I describe them as heaven in your bra because they feel so great. When I had both my children, they were my saving grace in those first few days/weeks that we were establishing a great latch and my nipples were adjusting to feeding. You can even refrigerate them in between feedings for added comfort! So as a mom, nurse and breastfeeding specialist - you will love these!
