A MUST BUY! While browsing the breastfeeding section when pregnant, I picked these up as a "I'll try it, but not sure if I need it". Among my close group of friends, I was the first one to become pregnant, so most of my mom and breastfeeding info came from moms who had children my age (25+). Although the info was great, I did not have anyone I could really talk to about breastfeeding and all of the new things out there to help with breastfeeding. I read everything I could and just bought things that I thought would help. THESE WERE SO HELPFUL!!! Before my milk came in, I had these on in between every nursing session. My son was and is still a "chomper", but the Soothies provided so much relief that I was able to push through those early days of breastfeeding. I feel that if I did not have the Soothies, I would not have been able to have the AMAZING experience of breastfeeding! I am so happy to say that we were EBF for 9 months and although we are doing self-led weaning, we are still nursing at 22 months!
