Bamboobies Nursing Pads Review, Discount, & Rafflecopter Giveaway



I'm looking forward to nursing again, I miss it. With baby E turning three in a couple of months, I really can't wait to hold a tiny, helpless newborn that depends on mommy for everything. Breastfeeding for the first time I used a lot of disposable nursing pads, as much as I didn't like them. Then I started using reusable ones, but they were plain cotton, not the best material for the purpose. Cold, wet, not waterproof, frayed edges after a few washes. Now I'm really excited to try Bamboobies bamboo nursing pads and I'm thankful they provided the Bamboobies Multi-pack for review. 


How are these different from the average reusable nursing pad? They will not leak, they are ultra thin and do not show under clothing, and they are made with organic bamboo fabric. Beyond organic, the fabric is certified free of harmful substances by Oeko-tex Standard 100. Soft doesn't even quite describe these nursing pads! They are so luxuriously plush, one mom put it well saying "Like a cashmere sweater for my boobies!" Behind the bamboo layer is a hidden layer of super absorbent hemp to contain the biggest of leaks. The outer layer is polyester with urethane coating, similar to waterproof cloth diapers.

Not only do Bamboobies feel absolutely incredible and are superior to disposables, they'll save you a ton of money! A nine month supply of disposable nursing pads will cost about $360, whereas the Bamboobies Multi-pack of four pairs (3 regular, one overnight) will only cost you $29. I nursed my first for two years, I would have spent a fortune on disposables! I think the math is pretty easy! Just like with cloth diapers. A no-brainer. Even if you buy two Multi-packs so you do not have to wash them as much, that's $58 - not $360. The argument for water and detergent cost doesn't apply here (as it does with cloth diapers) because obviously you wouldn't run a separate wash just for these, they just go in with your regular laundry. :)

One of you will win $16.99 Bamboobies credit toward a purchase (enough for two pairs or toward other item of your choice).

  6. The site is great - I love learning about eco solutions in parenting - I can't think of anything I don't like or would change - unless to suggest that I'd like even more giveaways-

  8. Not entering b/c I'm finally past the leaking stage of nursing (at just about 7 months now, yay!) but just wanted to put in my $.02 about how awesome bamboobies are. They really helped me out in the beginning when most of my other pads would leak almost immediately. They're definitely worth it!

  9. The only thing I don't like is that I can't find a Networked Blogs link-up on your site. I need to follow you via Networked Blogs! It's the easiest way for me to stay connected to blogs I love. :)

  10. Hmmmmm great site! I guess if I had to say something, I wish you didn't have to scroll past all the comments to get to the comment form. If there are hundreds it takes awhile! -Sharon M
