~~**CONGRATULATIONS, KRISTEN BOBBITT! **~~

Did you know that the same super-absorbing polymer gel that is in disposable diapers and disposable menstrual pads is also in those handy disposable breast pads?

Honestly, when I first discovered this (don’t ask me why I didn’t figure out this obvious fact years ago) after Camden’s birth I ignored it.

That’s terrible.  I know the side effects of Sodium polyacrylate yet, I loved the discreteness and absorbency of my Lansinoh breastpads so much I was willing to take the chance.

However, I couldn’t ignore the guilt I felt every time he latched on and I wondered if there was any transfer of chemical yuckiness (very technical).

Like you perhaps, I tried a few different cloth pads but they all have their weaknesses.

Currently, I am wearing plushness to the max with Bamboobies overnights.  I’m a leaker so I prefer more thickness.

Way soft. Cashmere soft.

I asked Kerry to give us a little background on her company Bamboobies. (I encourage you to also read through the FAQs. I learned a lot about their products there.)

Hi, Kerry! Tell us a little bit about your family and product.

I’m a mama of 3 under 4 with very leaky boobies. I invented Bamboobies particularly for new mothers who are tired of looking silly when pads show through, or (worse!) leak through their shirts, sick of changing their sheets or having a hard time sleeping in soaking wet t-shirts!  Bamboo is also amazingly soft and absorbent – two perfect traits for new mothers. And the bamboo doesn’t get cold and clammy when wet like a cotton pad does so they’re great for wearing through the long nights – and days – with a new baby.

I’m an entrepreneur at heart and when I had my first son I was very unhappy with the other pads, washable and disposable, out there.  I didn’t discover the uniquely wonderful qualities of Bamboo until I was cloth diapering my second – and I didn’t create bamboobies until one day when I thought of the funny name. After I had the name and product idea, I knew I couldn’t sleep until I got them to other leaky mamas like me.

Nursing mothers love Bamboobies because they’re the softest pads out there, they are less visible through clothing and have a PUL milk-proof backing.  They also like them because they’re cute, heart-shaped and come in fun colors and even black.  I hear most often that people buy them for the softness but love them for how discrete they are.

What are the different ways customers can connect with you?

    I’d go for the multi-pack w/ the 3 daytimes and 1 night time. I’m not typically a heavy leaker, I just wear nursing pads because there’s no sense in putting on a bra for the first several months at least. :)

    I LOVE my Bamboobies and I think all new moms should have some. I would use it to buy some of my expectant friends a “starter set” also known as a multipak. I’ve used mine for 5+ months and they still feel great!

    I would buy some Bamboobies breast pads… they’re so much cuter than others I’ve found! I’d also love to try a Moby; I love babywearing & am expecting our 3rd baby, so this would come in handy for our new baby!

  29. M. Sun Says:

    I would get the bamboob-ease and/or the regular bamboobies. I love the overnight ones I have, but I have plenty especially since I don’t really leak anymore. I still wear nursing pads because they add a enough padding to my nursing tanks, so my nipples don’t show and I don’t have to wear a regular bra.

    I need the Bamboobies Multi-pack!

    I wanna try the bamboobies regulars! I’m not a heavy leaker, but still want the security while out and about!!

    I’d buy wooden teething toys.

    i wish there was an alternative to plastic milk trays or milk storage system. Can you freeze in glass?

  34. Stephanie Says:

    I would love to try Bamboobies. I have not had any luck with cloth breast pads. The ones I have always leak, and I have gone back to disposables because I never have a leakage problem with them. I would really like to go back to cloth though.

    I would pick the overnight pads. I’m currently going through at least two disposable pads a night and would love a better product!
