|Bamboobies Breast Pads|
In honor of World Breastfeeding Week I thought I would introduce you to one of my favorite breastfeeding products, Bamboobies reusable nursing pads.
When I first became a mother I knew that I would be trying to make green choices for our growing family. We used cloth diapers, cloth wipes and cloth napkins. We were on a roll and I was happy with the choices we were making. The one thing I never thought about was my breast pads. I was using the store bought disposable ones and didn't think anything about it. However, I had many problems with them. They were sooo itchy!! They bunched, they leaked and sometimes, even smelled bad (yuck)! I tried just about every brand on the market and, in those early days, was going through at least 4 pairs a day! The cost was adding up quickly and I wasn't happy with throwing them in the trash. I also started wondering what chemicals might be in these absorbent pads that were placed against my body and tainting the place my baby was sucking on (gross)! So one day I started researching cloth (duh, why didn't I think of this before!!)
|Various cloth options|
I tried a number of cloth pads, which all leaked. Just like with cloth diapers, I knew there would be a learning curve and I would have to find one that worked for me. That's when I discovered Bamboobies!! There are so many great qualities, I just need to list them for you:
|Bamboobies vs. Disposable|
Averaging 4 pairs a day with the leading disposable pads, you are looking at $359.64 for a 9 month supply!! You can get a great starter pack of Bamboobies, including an overnight pair and 3 pairs of regulars, for only $29.00!!!
