Baby Shower Celebration: Bamboobies Nursing Pads Review

Tots and Me

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a little bit about Bamboobies Washable Nursing Pads.

I have been using my Bamboobies Pads now for a couple of weeks and I really love how soft they are. I have not had the problem of cracked nipples thus far, so I do not know how they will feel, but I am assuming they will be quite comfortable. The heart shape is quite unique and innovative. It really does help the pad to shape to my breasts so that there are no bumps or lumps seen through my clothing, though sometimes I have to rearrange them a bit to work out any wrinkles. I have some other disposable pads and I can definitely see them more through the clothing and there is no "working out the wrinkles" with them.

I have found that these nursing pads do a great job in absorbing any leaking breast milk, keeping my clothes from showing wet spots and also keeping it away from my skin. These three layers are amazing:

The one thing I do like better about the disposable pads is that I can use the adhesive to get them to stay in place better than the Bamboobies. When I am trying to fix my clothing after nursing I have to temporarily pull my shirt down and head into the bathroom to rearrange the pad. 

One other concern I have is concerning washing/drying the pads. The instructions say to not use fabric softener and to dry on low. Unfortunately the only low setting I have on my drier is a cold air fluff setting so it doesn't do any good whatsoever. So I end up drying them in with the socks (I put them in my net sock bag so they don't get lost) which get dried on high. And we use fabric softener sheets with all our laundry. I can't see drying the nursing pads all by themselves. I am not sure why we are to wash and dry them the way the instructions state, though I assume it has to do with maintaining the softness and the absorbency. So, I will have to see how these nursing pads stand up to my method of cleaning them. I am hoping they don't get ruined. 

All in all, I am very pleased with the Bamboobies Nursing Pads, especially knowing I am helping the environment by not having a bunch of disposable nursing pads in my garbage. I would definitely recommend these to other nursing mothers.

  1. These sound really nice. I am a breastfeeding mom and I know how the disposable pads can be seen through your shirt, so I would definitely like to try these. Thank you for the review!
