These disposable breast pads come in a box of 36. They have an extra-soft center that cushions tender nipples during the first few weeks of breastfeeding. I tried regular pads by Lansinoh and the ultra-soft version were considerably more comfortable (although pricier too). If you need a quick pain-relief option for cracked and bleeding nipples, apply a generous dab of Lansinoh cream directly on a Lansinoh ultra-soft breast pad.
These pads were a must-have item for me for the first few (painful) weeks of breastfeeding. I plan to purchase a box or two prior to my next labor & delivery to ensure they are on-hand and ready when the time comes.
