Bamboobies Review {and Giveaway}

This is a sponsored post.

After Charis was born, I used disposable breast pads, but 12+ months later regreted this. I leaked the whole time she was breastfed and was tired of forking over a small fortune everytime I needed to buy breastpads. I bought a few cloth pads, but was frustrated about how obvious it was when I wore them. When I found out last August that I was expecting, I heard that Bamboobies.

Bamboobies is a company that sells nursing pads, nursing shawls, bras, and nipple balm. I was sent both the regular and overnight pads.



Regulars:

Heart shaped
Available in light pink, hot pink, and black.
Ultra-thin.


Overnights:

Great for newborn nursing or overnight use

Diameter is 5 inches.
Thicker.

Both:
Milk proof backing
Made with organic cotton/bamboo rayon, hemp/organic cotton, and 

Polyester with polyurethane waterproofing.


My thoughts: 
I loved how soft they are. I found the heart shape was even less likely to show through my bra if I turned it upside down. The overnight breast pads are larger and more absorbent than both cloth and disposable pads I have tried. The times I leak {which is every time}, I have not noticed it; it's almost a stay dry feeling.

I received regular and overnight Bamboobies breastpads for the purpose of this review.

  3. I started with disposables but switched to cloth. Using cloth nursing pads works so much better and is so much cheaper! -Heather Johnson

  4. I used cloth but I had to use 2 at a time or I would leak through.

    I used disposables with my first 2 but leaked the nearly the whole year so spent a small fortune. Will try bamboobies this time around because cheap cotton ones didn't work before.

  6. I used a ton of disposable pads in the beginning as I only had a tiny stash of reusables (including Bamboobies). Now that I've got plenty of reusables, I can have a totally waste free baby #2!

  7. Cloth pads!!! I use cloth everything (cloth wipes, diapers, menstrual!)

  8. I didn't use cloth pads when I nursed my first baby, but now I wish I had! I received a free pair of Bamboobies to try with baby #2, and I'd love to have more- they seem amazing.

  10. I tried cloth pads for the first time after my youngest was born and like how soft they are and how easy to care for.

  16. i used cloth nursing pads with my son, and i plan on doing the same this time around as well (due june 30th)

  17. I got several boxes of the disposables from baby showers, but when they're gone, I plan on using bamboobies. I cloth diaper, and I can't justify using disposable nursing pads when a great alternative is readily available.

  18. I have a couple of cloth ones, but they are not doing the trick! So I've been using disposables so far - would love to try bamboobies though!

  19. Cloth - love bamboobies!

  20. I used these for my first, but lost most of them to the washing machine (note: keep the mesh bag, and use it every time you wash the pads!). Would LOVE to have some more pads for our second time around :)

  21. I used both the first time around, however I didn't like the cloth as much as they never kept me "wet shirt proof". I plan on trying Bamboobies this time around!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I use both because I don't have enough Bamboobies!

  23. I love bamboobies! I haven't tried them since the backing has been added to the overnight pads and I am expecting baby #2 soon, so I can't wait to try them out!

  24. I haven't needed any yet, but I am definitely wanting to try the Bamboobies.

  26. I'm still pregnant but I do plan on using breast pads.

  27. I use Ameda cloth pads at night but they are extremely bulky and not a good option for daytime. I am so sick of buying nursing pads even though my little guy is only two weeks old. I go through multiple disposables during the day-I feel like I can wring them out after a few hours.
