Important Facts About Bamboobies Nursing Pads
- When cotton pads leak though, regular Bamboobies milk-proof backing prevents leaks!
- When cotton pads feel cold and clammy when wet, bamboo doesn’t.
- Where cotton pads are more bulky and visible through clothing, Bamboobies aren’t.
- 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.
As a mother that managed to successfully and exclusively breast feed two children, I can not express how important it is to have a reliable nursing bra and pads. I really wish I had known about reusable pads during those years of nursing, as it would have saved me loads of money! I was one of those women that produced a ridiculous amount of milk, causing me to leak every time I left the house and having to change my disposable nursing pads at least six times a day. Night time was even worse and I would literally have to double up on pads to ensure I didn’t wake up completely soaked in breast milk. I also found that every time I nursed my baby, my other breast would immediately start leaking everywhere. So yes, it is very safe to say that I went through boxes upon boxes of disposable nursing pads with my first two children. With baby number three due any time now, I am determined to save money this time around when it comes to nursing pads. I recently discovered a fabulous company called Bamboobies, which sells products for your nursing needs. From bras to pads, you are sure to find all you need to make nursing your new baby a more relaxing experience.
Bamboobies has an incredibly soft and comfortable nursing bra that is going to make those first few months of nursing more comfortable while at home. Having a stretchy and supportive bra that is designed with your changing body in mind is the ideal bra in my opinion. There are no clasps because it is designed to easily pull to the side for a convenient nighttime nursing session. This is truly going to make a difference at night and you are going to love the ease of being able to nurse at nighttime with this bra on. The Bamboobies Brahhh is perfect for the end of your pregnancy, the time you spend nursing baby and would even be perfect for when your are done nursing!
Bamboobies offers two types of reusable nursing pads, depending on your milk flow and stage of nursing. As mentioned previously, the first few months of nursing are going to be very messy and the milk flow will be a lot. The overnight pads are the perfect size for ensuring that you don’t wake up in the morning soaked and are thin enough to use even when you go out. These are really going to be great when you have a larger milk flow and you won’t have to worry about leaks when you are out in public. As you get further in nursing and several months go by, your milk flow will begin to regulate. You will start to notice that the leaking has decreased in volume and you are then ready to use the adorable heart shaped nursing pads. I just love the fabric of both pads, as they are comfortable and absorbent. Disposable nursing pads are quite bulky and not at all comfortable, comparable to wearing pads when you are on your period. I am loving everything about the Bamboobies nursing pads and highly recommend them if you plan on nursing. Not only are they going to be more comfortable and convenient, but they are going to save you a ton of money!
