I have been so lucky to have a sister who already has two children of her own as I have received so many hand-me-downs. One such hand-me-down was my sister’s washable breast pads. Being a graduate of an Environmental Science Program, I am always looking for ways to reduce my ecological footprint. I was keen to use these washable pads but soon became frustrated, as they would leak through each night to my pajama shirts. Not only was it annoying to have to wash my pajamas and clothes every day but also I didn’t think it was great to have sore nipples sitting against damp cotton all night/day. It was also frustrating as while the pads washed well, they did not dry quickly and I always ended up having to hang them all over the nursery – not a pretty site and quite annoying. I have been using disposable breast pads ever since which are costly and end up in the garbage each morning.
When I was given a pair of Bamboobies to try, I was immediately excited simply due to the fact that they were in the shape of a heart – I’m a sucker for stuff like that. I was skeptical, however I gave them a try after washing and drying them (no need to hang dry!!).
My one caution to nursing Moms is that if using creams be careful with any material pad as your nipple can become slightly stuck to the fabric. Other than that, these breast pads keep me feeling way less guilty and feeling dry and pretty at the same time. I have already ordered 6 more pairs in the hot pink, light pink and black colour options.
