In the very early weeks of breastfeeding I would leak E.V.E.R.Y.W.H.E.R.E all day long. It took a long while for my milk supply to regulate. I would go through about 6 pair of nursing pads a day. I had a few different brands of reusable nursing pads but the one that I kept reaching for was Bamboobies.
I knew that I wanted reusable nursing pads for several reasons. I kept thinking that it would be uncomfortable having a plastic-y disposable nursing pad on my skin, not to mention if it would make the same noise that some disposable menstrual pads make. They also seem wasteful and in my case they definitely would have been given how much leaking was going on. Reusable nursing pads are way more eco-friendly as well which is important to me. And in the long run it would save a ton of money.
What sets Bamboobies nursing pads apart is that their bamboo absorbent layer doesn’t feel cold and wet like cotton pads do. The bamboo fabric is also really thin so these are by far the thinnest nursing pads on the market and don’t obviously leave a ring around my boobs through my shirt. They are also backed with a leak proof layer so nothing soaks through to the side of the pad that is touching your bra. And have you seen how adorable the heart shaped day time pads are?? Plus, they come in 3 colors to jazz up your sleep-deprived life with a newborn just a little bit.
Bamboobies nursing pads come in day and overnight protection. The days pads are super thin and though they are absorbent if you are an excessive leaker you might need to wear the overnight pads until your milk supply regulates a bit. The overnight pads (blue) are larger for better protection while sleeping and thicker so they can absorb more. But they are still much thinner than other cotton overnight pads that I have used. Plus, all bamboobies pads are so soft and luxurious feeling.
The amount of pads you will need really depends on how much you leak. In my opinion a good starting point would be 3 day pair and 2 overnight pair. This way you are always covered and can throw them in with any load of laundry when you need to. Just be sure not to use fabric softener so they maintain their absorbancy.
Bamboobies also carries other great products like the Chic Nursing Shawl, Organic Nipple Balm, Organic Belly & Baby Butter, Soothing Breast Pillow, and the Brahhh.
Bamboobies sent me the Brahhh to try out and I was really excited about it because I’m always on a mission to find cute, comfortable nursing bras. The Brahhh lives up to it’s name as it is extremely comfortable and is perfect for lounging with baby and for sleeping. To nurse you simply pull the bra to the side so there are no clips to fumble with if you need to nurse in the middle of the night. That also means it is completely functional to wear during pregnancy and after you are finished nursing. The straps are thin but nice and stretchy so they don’t dig in to your shoulders. It is made with organic cotton, spandex, and bamboo rayon so it is an extremely soft and breathable fabric with great stretch to accommodate a changing breast size and to easily give access for nursing.
