I am proud to be bringing you another sponsor as part of the breastfeeding prize pack: Bamboobies
Bamboobies was created by Kerry, a nursing mother of 3 from Boulder, Colorado who was looking for a more functional and stylish solution to her breastfeeding needs. After a few months of breastfeeding, she was still leaking, even through thick, washable pads. She didn’t want to use disposables for any number of reasons, so she grabbed a baby wipe and used that. Made from organic bamboo velour, it worked great and felt amazing! After about a year, she settled on a few different styles.
I received a pair of Bamboobies regular pads to review. Bamboobies regulars are made of bamboo. I am sure you have heard me say this a million times, but I love bamboo! In any way, shape, or form. My first reaction was wow! These pads are incredibly soft and very, very thin. Because of the bamboo, when these get wet, they aren’t cold like cotton is against your skin. And…did I mention they are heart shaped nursing pads? Not only does that symbolize the love that you have for your baby, but the shape wraps around your breast without wrinkling like many other pads do, making them less visible through your shirt. Available in 3 fantastic colors – pale pink, hot pink, and black. Made with soft certified organic bamboo and cotton velour, the layer touching your skin will soothe sore nipples. An ultra absorbent hemp core locks in milk and the outer layer prevents leaks.
Since I don’t leak much, I can’t tell you how absorbent they are when wearing them, but I did measure out some water and put equal amounts on a disposable pad and on a bamboobies pad. In the picture, you can see the difference in thickness. Now, the Bamboobies pad starts out thinner, but the bulk of the disposable when it is wet doesn’t look comfortable to me at all!
And to give you an idea of the size, this is the Bamboobies pad on top of an Avent disposable breast pad.
