Waiting for Baby Event... Bamboobies Review and Giveaway

Finding the right nursing pad is always difficult, especially for me. I prefer soft, thin pads and the majority of the ones on the market are thick and bulky. That's fine for overnight or at home but I don't want to look like I have a lumpy padded bra on when I leave the house!

Bamboobies has come to my rescue! Bamboobies are handmade in Colorado, using organic and sustainable fabrics (bamboo, organic cotton and hemp). Besides that, they're super soft! They're velour on the side that faces your skin, are waterproof, and absorb 4x more milk than cotton. Since bamboo is anti-microbial they may help prevent breast infection.

One of my favorite things about them (besides the softness) is the shape! They're heart shaped, so you can mold them to fit better than a "typical" round pad.


Bamboobies also sells an overnight pad, which also works well for the first weeks before your milk supply is regulated. The overnight pads are large (5 inches in diameter), thick and very soft.

Look at the size difference between Bamboobies Overnights and the Medela Cotton Nursing pads! You have so much more coverage (and the extra absorbency) that you won't have to worry about leaks at night!


Want to buy your own? Bamboobies is offering a 20% off coupon to my readers! Simply enter coupon code SAN20 in their store and enjoy the savings!

You can also win a set of either regular or overnight Bamboobies right here!

  34. no matter sneakers or slippers, we look beautiful either. Hogan Shoes We could be enthusiastic about shoes Ugg boots 5815 but not become a crazy fan about cheap nike shoes. Every month or week we get salary.
