Product Details

Designed for nursing moms and developed with the help of a midwife and baby adviser, Philips AVENT NEW Thermopads 2ct offer both warming and cooling therapy. These reusable pads are soft and flexible for comfort and feature a contoured shape that molds to your breast and includes two soft sleeves that are washable. When warmed, they can help stimulate milk production. When cooled, they provide relief from the discomfort of engorgement and general soreness. Safe and easy to use, Philips AVENT Thermal Gel Pads provide gentle, soothing relief to make nursing more comfortable.

Soothing Relief for Tender Breasts
Philips AVENT Thermopads provide both cooling and warming therapy to ease discomfort caused by nursing and to stimulate milk flow. Warming therapy can help loosen clogged milk ducts to make feeding easier. Cooling therapy soothes pain and discomfort associated with engorgement or weaning.

Comfortable, Natural Fit
These soft, flexible pads have a cone shape that molds to your breast for a comfortable fit and instant relief and should always be used with the soft sleeves. They can be worn with a regular bra or nursing bra.

Easy to Heat and Cool
To warm the pads, simply place in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. To enjoy the benefits of cold therapy, place the pads in a refrigerator for about an hour before use.

Safe and Reusable
Thermopads are safe for nursing moms and are reusable. You can clean the pad in warm water with some mild dishwashing soap. Do not use a brush or scourer or abrasive cleaning agent. You can clean the sleeve by hand or in the washing machine at a low temperature.

  • Title: Cold pads are a Godsend

    I put the gel pads in the freezer and used the sleeves. Once they were in the sleeves, I inserted them into a large stretchy bra and leaned back to soak it in. Do you know the feeling when your lower back is sore and you get it massaged or when any other kind of relief happens for just a nagging soreness? This beats them all. I felt such relief for my sore breasts that I actually started crying. I slept in them last night and they weren't at all uncomfortable and did give relief. Obviously they weren't still cool when I woke up, but that's ok. Because of the covers, there was no sense of freezer burn or too-cold-on-the-skin. The size and shape is good. I am a DD/DDD cup. I wish I had 2 sets so I could keep one set in the freezer while using the other. I might buy another set. I tried them warm for milk production

  • Title: New mom loves them!

    We had a new mom staying with us during the holidays and she loved the Gel Pads. She was having quite a bit of discomfort and the coolness of the pads really helped her. As another reviewer stated, she wished she had 2 sets so I am ordering them for her. Might be a good baby shower gift idea for a new mom-to-be!

  • Title: Good and bad

    I liked the shape and the texture. The outside cover is nice to protect you from extreme temperatures. I didn't like that I couldn't heat them in the microwave and had to warm them in hot water. I would rather have used a bean bag that warms quickly, but these are lighter and don't press as hard. I only used the cool one once as heat is my preference, but freezing them was just too cold and shocking so I stuck them in the fridge instead and it was better. I will probably use them for lots of different things, not just breasts, now that I have them.

  • Title: Fine, but not great

    As a lactation educator, I was excited to see this product offered on Amazon Vine. However, while it certainly has a use, the seemingly clever design is not at helpful as one would imagine. Firstly, for a small breasted woman, the product is HUGE. If you are large breasted this is probably appreciated, but this is definitely designed for more of a D cup than a B or C. While it would seem this shouldn't matter, the product doesn't mold to the breast well for a smaller woman. Also The weakest part of this product though is that you can't heat it in the microwave. You are meant to put it in hot water to heat it up. When I have a hot/cold pack (I usually use flax seeds) In general This was a nice idea...but I think a sock full of flax or rice is just as useful."

  • Title: Wish I had these for the very early days of nursing...

    Overall these did feel good when trying to relieve soreness which I did suffer from during the first few weeks. However, using them for warmth was not really needed for me as being able to microwave them would have been much quicker. The size of these gel pads were ok for nipple soothing as well for me as I am so small breasted they easily covered my nipples with some slight adjustments. They can have another use as cold packs for boo boos once your little one is toddling around.

  • Title: REALLY COOLS YOU DOWN! Multipurpose for all. Relives swollen tender breasts, hot flashes, night sweats, bruises or fever.

    Regular freezer packs with cover,we love. 5 stars for multipurpose. Easy to use pop in freezer, then put inside cover and apply. Helped relieve painful swollen breasts on the breastfeeding mom. We also used to cool down for hot flashes and at night when woke up with night sweats. Works great. Grabbed one out of the freezer to use for a bump & bruised, skinned knee, and for forehead for kid with fever. Neg-time consuming to prepare heated to encourage milk let down. Covers wash easily but as they are small can get lost so recommend hand washing. Would highly recommend for any on any age for the multi-purpose use of a freezer pack with cover. Brings cool relief to : fever

  • Title: Okay for cooling, doesn't function for hot.

    This is a great product in theory, but in practice it doesn't live up to its promise. I gave it only two stars because: 1. It doesn't heat up enough 2. The shape of the gel pack makes it possible to only cover one area of the breast. The hole for the nipple is on the extreme edge 3. The inner edge of the nipple hole is not sharp and it's covered by the terry cloth cover 4. The standard recipe for quick relief of engorgement and plugged ducts is to apply heat before every pumping or nursing session and cold immediately after for no more than 10 minutes. This would be pretty impossible with even two sets of these packs. For those reasons Please note: if you are suffering from sore breasts or nipples

  • Title: A terrific product

    It was very fortuitous that this product became available for review just as my daughter had a new baby. Despite intensive research on her part on products that would be helpful for a new baby and new mother, she was not aware that this product existed. She had only used these cold as she did not need the hot function. Her postpartum Nurse recommended that she use a bag of frozen peas or a wet cabbage leaf to perform the same function as these gel pads. What's not shown in the product picture is that these pads are dough-nut shaped with the hole for the nipple. This allows the sensitive nipple to avoid temperature extremes. These pads were very practical because they are worn inside a nursing bra which allows the mother to be involved in activities August 31st update: At eight months old

  • Title: Works ok

    These work ok, and the pads are a nice inclusion. The cooling pads are refreshing For those women that might be interested: - these probably work best for large (circumference

  • Title: Heaven for engorged breasts!

    These were an absolute LIFESAVER when my wife's breasts were engorged. Throwing frozen ones in her bra gave her immediate relief, and she would absolutely recommend these to any nursing mother. The terry cloth liners were very soft on her aching breasts and incredibly easy to launder. She was both hot and cold about the shape: one the one hand She also found that it was very difficult to take advantage of the dual hot/cold capability of the pads. She keeps them in the freezer

  • Title: definitely soothing

    I used these to soothe my breasts while I was exclusively breastfeeding my son. They worked, especially at times when my breasts were midly engorged. However, they don't work that well for sore nipples, as the gel wraps around the nipples instead of being applied on them (Lansinoh has soothing nipple pads for that that work much better). But these did feel nice on my breasts. As for using them to help get more milk

  • Title: Fine, but not great.

    With high hopes, we tried these gel pads to try and alleviate some of the soreness from breastfeeding, and to help with milk let-down. Our main goal was to help soothe, though. We cooled the pads as instructed Conversely All in all

  • Title: Loved the idea but its use are a bit limited

    I loved the idea that I could use this as a warm pad and then use it as a cold pack. What I didn't realize was how much work went into getting it to be warm/cold. First of all, the gel packs are not microwavable, which was a bit disappointing as that would be the easiest way to get it to be warm. For it to be cold, it has to be soaked in ice cold water for about 10 minutes or put it in the freezer. I personally never used the warm pack since I never had problems with let down. I tried to use it when it was cold for engorgement and while that worked OK Otherwise

  • Title: Doesn't get warm enough as quick as it claims

    I did not enjoy using this product. In particular, don't expect the gel pack to warm up within 10 minutes, especially if you've refrigerated it to make it cool. The product instructions should have disclosed that the heating time was from room temperature. And even when it was warm, it was really no warmer than running a washcloth under really hot water from the tap. You don't really need to pay for a product that's going to lose its heat almost instantly. My engorged breasts were in agony. Cabbage leaves ultimately brought the engorgement down, but for immediate relief, I used an old fashion hot water bottle and that did the trick. Even used as a cold pad Soothies Gel Pads If you found this review helpful

  • Title: A Must Have For Breastfeeding

    I had used the lanolin cooling pads but you cant reuse them over and over. These are awesome They are a great investment. I have been using them and breastfeeding for 15 months plus. I am now pregnant and due in August '12 and will most definitely use these then too for the newborn."

  • Title: Awesome

    My wife thought this was the greatest thing every to place on her sore nipples. She is a first time mom and wasn't quite sure what to expect.

  • Title: Eh Okay

    The idea is good but it's not living up to it's promises. It takes a while to heat up and you must heat it up in hot water. You can't microwave it so it's not a convenient solution and it can only cover one area of the breast. These were okay for cold use however and did provide some relief to my aching breasts."

  • Title: Works great for ankles

    Bought these thinking they would hook nicely around ankle, and they did exactly that. I used these around the clock before my ankle surgery, and now after. They are small enough to use in tight places and stay in place because of the shape. Buy these you will use these for many pains.

  • Title: Better for cold than hot

    Ordered this to bring relief. I purchased two 2-packs, one for warm and one for cold. Did not warm up well or stay warm. As far as cold use, worked perfectly.

  • Title: Love these

    Great product. I had problems with engorgement with every baby so I ordered these while I was still pregnant with my last baby and I was so glad I did because they were a lifesaver when I was engorged after baby. They didn't interfere with my milk supply at all and truly gave me relief. Now that I am done with them my kids use these for cold packs now instead of a bag of peas and they love them for that purpose. I would recommend this product to family and friends.

    They freeze well but the instructions say to heat them in a pan of hot water, which doesn't allow for it to get very hot!

  • Title: Such a relief.

    I've been breast feedingy first child and have been shocked at how painful it is! I was ready to give up after only 2 weeks, but found that if I place these I've packs on my breasts for 30 minutes after a feeding the pain is easily cut in half. Great product, good shape, comes with a sleeve so all you have to do is stick it in your bra and go about your day.
