The Lansinoh THERA°PEARL 3-in-1 Breast Therapy is a set of two pack and covers. The inside of each pad contains these tiny gel-like pearls. This allows each pad to mold to your breast comfortably, no matter the size or shape of your breast. These pearls are non-toxic and made from super-absorbent polymer. They are purple and feel very soft through the pad. My toddler and I had fun just poking around on the pads.

They are latex, BPA, and Phthalate-Free.​

The main uses for the pads are to help with keeping breastfeeding comfortable and productive, milk production wise. You can use them in either hot or cold fashion, without a lot of stress. (My tip would be to keep them in your freezer, you can quickly heat them in the microwave, but it takes more time to get them cold than to get them warm.)

Using the THERA°PEARL Pads

One thing that many moms will use these for when warm is to alleviate pain from engorgement, pain, and swelling from complications like mastitis or plugged ducts.

The covers that are used to cover up the gel pearl contain pads are soft and non-irritating to the skin, but it does protect you from the sticky feeling of the plastic against your skin.

Some moms also use them to aid in let down when using a breast pump. This aids in milk let down while using the pump when you are away from your baby.

This can be a quick and easy way to use warm compresses, even when you’re not at home. All you need is a microwave to heat them up.

To use the THERA°PEARL 3-in-1 Breast Therapy as a warm pack, you will want to place the pads (with or without covers) in the microwave. You will warm them for 15 seconds.

If that isn’t warm enough, you can add 5-second increments. Please heed this advice. I tried to speed this process up and did manage to explode the pad. They are nicely warm when done and can hold heat for quite awhile. The petal shape works well to fit it around your breast or to press on the specific area that you want to cover with warmth, like the whole breast or a plugged duct. You can even fit these over the pump flanges very comfortably.

Cold therapy is also possible with the same pads. That is part of what I really like, less clutter in my house for this dual purpose item. To use it as a cold pack, you need to freeze the pads for at least two hours. This is why I suggested leaving them in the freezer as a storage place. The cold options work great for relieving pain from engorgement. Most moms only experience this for a few days in the beginning, but you can’t imagine how it feels until it’s you. And later, when you’re not using them regularly anymore, you can also use them as plain and simple boo boo packs for your kids.

The maintenance is also simple. You can spot clean both the pad and the cover. The covers, I did both hand wash and machine wash, both were fine. The actual pearl pads need to be hand washed with a mild soap.

They don’t really get dirty so I wouldn’t recommend cleaning them after every use.

The THERA°PEARL 3-in-1 Breast Therapy makes a really nice gift for any new mom. I often make gift baskets for new moms and this would make an awesome addition to that basket of goods. You could also use that as a nice gift for a baby shower or you could just send someone to get a pair after your baby has arrived.
