Did any of you snag the Bamboobies deal of a trial pair for a penny plus shipping? Shipping was $3.95, so I looked at it as paying $4 for the pair, rather than getting a “free” pair, but it was still a pretty good deal considering that 2-packs retail for $16.99.
The regular Bamboobies have a super soft layer of bamboo velour touching your skin, an absorbent hemp core, and a moisture resistant outer layer. (3 layers of material, two of which are absorbent – Bamboo velour layer is 70% bamboo rayon, 28% OCIA certified organic cotton and 2% polyester, hemp layer is 55% hemp/45% organic cotton, waterproof layer is polyester with urethane waterproofing.) They are heart shaped to fit you without wrinkling, and are appropriate for light/daytime leaking. Bamboobies also makes overnight pads that have 3 layers of absorbency: outer layers are 80% Rayon from Bamboo – fiber Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified – 20% Recycled Polyester, inner layer is 55% Hemp, 45% un-bleached GOTS Certified Organic Cotton. These breast pads to not have a waterproof layer, are round, and retail for $16.99 per pack of 2 pairs.
The only other reusable nursing pads I’ve used are the Geffen Baby hemp nursing pads. They are more comparable to the Bamboobies overnights since they are 3 absorbent layers of 60% hemp/40% organic cotton (no waterproof layer) and are round. Those are available in hemp jersey ($7.99/3 pair) or hemp fleece ($8.99/3 pair.) You can purchase directly from the company, The Cloth Nook or from my affiliate, Dearest Diapers.
I rarely use nursing pads since I’m not a huge leaker anymore. Both pads absorbed 1 tsp of water with no trouble and without leaking through to the other side. Hemp does continue to gain absorbency through up to 8-12 washes, and absorbs better/more quickly with pressure (like in your bra) vs just pouring water on it like I did. Both brands are made in the U.S.A.
Have you used reusable nursing pads?
