  • 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.

                These are a Lifesaver! I was literally crying when nursing my son in the beginning and a friend told me about these to ease the pain. They are amazing! They provided so much relief and got me threw those few days of an incorrect latch! Thank you for helping to make our breastfeeding journey a success!

                            After having my 8th child I had really badly cracked nipples that were very sore. My son just had his latch all wrong. I was in the hospital and the lactation consultant came to see me, she helped me get his latch corrected and she offered me these gel pads that I didn't even know existed! I was so happy to use them and they helped me so much! Its nice to be able to put them in the fridge and have a nice squishy cool gel to put on sore nipples! What a sigh of relief I had thanks to soothies!

                                  These came in handy when I had my last child. I didn't breastfeed with my older two kids. However, I decided I was going to give it a go with my youngest. The gel pads were like heaven when I had sore nipples. They were definetly soothing to the touch.

                                                    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.

                                                          When I first started nursing my 2nd child (I never nursed my first child), I experienced so much pain. Lanolin was helping me get by, but my right nipple was always cracked and I couldn't seem to get anything to work. I bought these gel pads and they soothed the soreness right on contact. Being that I had them in the fridge when I could, the coolness and the gel just made me feel so much relief. I am so grateful that these pads exist!
