While I breastfed Justin, I always used the disposable breast pads for my bra and I can’t tell you how many of those I went through…a lot of money into box after box of disposable pads. They weren’t even that great because they would move (even though they had the “sticky” back) and once I was in traffic court and while waiting on my name to be called, the pad got full and the entire front of my shirt ended up soaked…I had to go to the bathroom and use paper towels to keep it from getting worse and then had to face the judge with an obviously wet shirt (I tried to cover it the best I could with crossed arms). The good news of that story is that my ticket was dismissed…bad news was I still didn’t know there was an alternative to disposable breast pads…ones that might work better. Thankfully with this baby, I know about Bamboobies!
When I received Bamboobies and got them out of the package, I immediately noticed how soft they are. Breastfeeding can take a toll on your nipples, no need to make it worse with a rough disposable breast pad. Bamboobies are bigger than the disposable breast pads I used, so I feel more confidant that they won’t leak. They have two different pads, regulars which are shaped like hearts, and then the overnights which are round and blue. What’s the difference between the regular and overnights?
Regular Bamboobies are heart-shaped and ultra-thin with a milk-proof backing. They are less visible under clothing and are ideal for when your milk supply is regulated.
Overnight Bamboobies are super-soft and ultra-thick with a milk-proof backing. They are ideal for the early days of newborn nursing and for heavy leakers. And they are also bigger than other washable pads so they keep you covered while you sleep.
The money you can save by using Bamboobies over disposable breast pads is amazing too! You can buy the multi-pack (includes 3 regular and 1 overnight) for $24.99 and just keep washing and reusing them!
Bamboobies don’t just sell the reusable breast pads, they also have adorable Chic Nursing Shawls. I received a black nursing shawl with a turquoise flower accent. The shawl is lightweight and soft. It’s made of bamboo and organic cotton jersey so it stretches. While wearing it, no one would ever guess it’s a nursing cover. It’s so lightweight that it won’t make you and baby too hot during hot days. A Chic Nursing cover is $32.99. They come in three different colors with flower accents.
