One of the very first posts I ever wrote for this site was about the best disposable nursing pads. I had such strong opinions about them, and I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences with other moms; they were one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place, if you can believe it.
I still stand behind that review, but I didn’t know at the time that reusable nursing pads even existed. Thanks to other mommy bloggers, I learned about them and have really enjoyed trying out various types of reusable pads. I like that they are washable, that they save money, and that they are more eco-friendly (no icky chemicals on me, thanks!).
But what I don’t like about them, or at least most of them, is that they are also bulky, just like most other disposable pads. I’ll take bulky reusable pads over bulky disposable pads any day, but guess what? Those aren’t your only two choices! I have found reusable nursing pads that are SUPER trim and SUPER soft. They are like a little swatch of luxury!
They are called Bamboobies. And as the name suggests, they are made of bamboo, which is by far the softest material I have yet to try for a breast pad. They feel so darn nice! And they are super thin, too. I have some other thin reusable breast pads, but they just don’t cut the mustard. I’m usually leaking through them within 1 1/2 hours…what’s the point of that?! Bamboobies have a leak-proof outer lining, and I can tell you from experience, they truly don’t leak.
Also, Bamboobies are heart-shaped, which is much more flattering than the round disc look that most nursing pads have. The heart shape also doesn’t give you that crumpled look that you can so easily get with round pads. You can’t see your Bamboobies through your clothes, which is more than I can say for most pads.
Bamboobies are made from organic materials, but even goes beyond that wonderful step. They also use sustainable fabrics and advocate for fair labor practices by hiring locally in Colorado (hooray for Made in the USA products!).
I know I will be purchasing more of these and ditching most of my other cloth breast pads. Why wear something uncomfortable and ineffective when a product as wonderful as Bamboobies exists?
