medicated breast pads

Wondered if anyone could help, when I had my DD I got mastitis and cracked nipples. The midwife was excellent and supplied me with some 'brand new' breast pads, they were made out of gel and medicated and you could wear them all day. They were really soothing and comfortable.

This was 8 years ago now and have been looking to see if you can buy such a thing anywhere but I am not having much luck DC4 is due in 4 weeks and would love to find some before he arrives. Has anyone got any ideas?

Tommee Tippee do them here. I've seen them in-store at larger branches of Mothercare, Boots and Babies R Us (who sometimes have them on sale for £1.99).

If you put 'Tommee Tippee spun hydrogel pads' into Google you get lots of results from other manufacturers too.
