Why do I need to wash my breast after Soothies are removed to 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.
Can Soothies Gel Pads cloth backing cause an infection on my nipple? No, the cloth backing on the Soothies Gel Pads does not promote the transmission of bacteria or fungus to the nipple. The cloth backing helps wick moisture and fluids away from the nipple.
Can Soothies Gel Pads be used when a mom has a bacterial or fungal infection (such as yeast, thrush, or candidiasis? No, Soothies Gel Pads should not be used when a mom has a bacterial or fungal infection.
Can I use Soothies Gel Pads when I have mastitis? No, Soothies are not intended to be used as a treatment of mastitis.
Is it dangerous to use Lansinoh HPA Lanolin with Soothies Gel Pads? We do not recommend using HPA Lanolin with Soothies Gel Pads because they are both designed to do the same thing in promoting soothing relief and we do not want the surface to be too moist as maceration (softening and whitening of the skin when kept wet) can occur. If there is residual HPA Lanolin on your breasts, however, when you use Soothies Gel Pads, do not be alarmed. No reactions will occur with the glycerin and the lanolin since it is a very mild environment.
Can I use medicinal ointment/creams with Soothies Gel Pads? When medicinal or other ointments are used, be sure to follow your physician’s instructions for usage. If your prescribing healthcare provider has given the ok to use the ointment with Soothies Gel Pads, we recommend putting as thin as possible a layer and then letting it absorb into your skin prior to applying Soothies Gel Pads on top.
Can I heat Soothies Gel Pads? No, it is not advisable to heat Soothies Gel Pads. Applying a heated gel pad could result in a burn and that could exacerbate any existing soreness or pain you may be experiencing.
Do I need to add water to keep Soothies Gel Pads “hydrated”? Re-hydration is not required for Soothies Gel Pads. Unlike hydrogel pads, Soothies Gel Pads will not dry out because of the high concentration of vegetable-based glycerin, so no water is needed for re-hydration.
My pad has crusty parts, should I throw it away? If the pad becomes dirty or has crusty areas, it can be cleaned with a clean damp, not wet, cloth, as needed. This may lengthen the amount of time that the pad can be used.
My Soothies Gel Pads appear darker now than before, why is that? The sterilization process of the Soothies Gel Pads may cause the pads to darken over time. However, there is no need to be alarmed and the color has not compromised the product or its effectiveness.
Why can I only use Soothies Gel Pads for three weeks total? The recommended usage of any gel pads is not to exceed 3 weeks total because if you are experiencing soreness or pain, you should seek the advice of a lactation consultant, breastfeeding educator, or healthcare provider to understand and correct the underlying cases or soreness or pain. CAUTION: Total usage of gel pads should not exceed three weeks. If nipple pain continues beyond one week or the nipple is cracked, bleeding, scabbed, blistered, or excessively painful, seek the advice of an international board certified lactation consultant or health care provider. Keep out of reach of children.
