What is the difference between regular and overnight Bamboobies washable nursing pads?

Regular pads are heart-shaped and ultra-thin with a leak-proof backing. They are less visible under clothing and are ideal for when your milk supply is regulated or for daytime protection. The heart-shape acts as a dynamic dart and allows the pad to contour to the breast. Overnight pads are thicker with a leak-proof backing. They are ideal for the early days of newborn nursing and for heavy leakers. Because they are larger than our regular pads, they keep you protected from leaks while you sleep.

Both our regular and overnight pads are designed with super-soft velour made from renewable bamboo and are more comfortable than any other brand.

How do I use my Bamboobies washable nursing pads?

Wash pads before use for optimal absorption and comfort.

Bamboobies regular and overnight washable nursing pads have a super-soft rayon velour side and a colored leak-proof liner side. Wear the soft velour side against your breast. Every woman's breast is shaped differently, so position the pad in a way that works best for you - don't be afraid to be creative!

Be sure to change your washable pads frequently. This will help avoid saturation and side leakage and to keep your skin dry and healthy.

For best results, wash prior to initial use. Machine wash your regular and overnight washable pads on warm. Dry completely on medium heat. No fabric softeners (they can inhibit absorption). If you notice any discoloration or staining after using them, wash them in a mild bleach solution.

We realize that new moms are very busy with their babies, but it’s important to wash your used pads as soon as possible to keep them in optimal condition. Plus - the more you wash and dry our washable pads, the softer they will get!

If machine washing & drying is not an option, hand wash in hot soapy water, rinse well and be sure to air dry them completely in a dry, non-humid area before using. We recommend placing pads in direct sunlight with the velour side exposed until they are completely dry. Please note: if you use the hand wash/dry method, the pads may not appear the same or feel as soft as they would from a dryer.

Do Bamboobies washable pads show through shirts as much as other nursing pads?

Do Bamboobies washable pads cost more than other nursing pads?

How do I know how many washable pads I will need?

Every mom’s breastfeeding experience is unique and therefore her nursing pad needs will be different. Some moms leak every few hours and some moms leak every few minutes! A good place to start is figuring you will need 4 pairs during the day and 1-2 pairs during the night.

It is important to change your pads as soon as they get wet, so it is better to err on having extra pads (plus, less often to have to do laundry!)

Are the washable pads recyclable?

How do I use Bamboobies disposable nursing pads?

Open the individually wrapped disposable pads. Remove the tabs from the adhesive strips to secure the pad in your bra placing the soft top sheet side next to the breast.

Change your pads when wet to keep your skin healthy.

Please recycle the box. The wrappers may also be recycled after use. Please check with your local county or municipality to determine your recycling requirements.

How do I use and care for my Bamboobies soothing therapy pillows?

Our soothing therapy pillows can be used as warm or cool therapy for a variety of breast ailments. The pillows have thicker velour on one side and thinner jersey on the other side. This allows you to better regulate the temperature for the need. Both fabrics are made from renewable bamboo. The pillows are filled with a natural flaxseed which retains both heat and cold temperatures.

Therapy pillows are easy to use. To heat, remove from box and place in the microwave for 20-40 seconds. Be very careful to test the temperature before applying because microwave setting vary. To cool, place them in the freezer or refrigerator.

Our therapy pillows can be heated to stimulate let-down, relieve plugged ducts, and ease the discomfort of mastitis. They can be cooled to reduce swelling and tenderness associated with engorgement, soothe sore nipples, or discomfort from teething or weaning.

Plus, our therapy pillows can be used beyond the breastfeeding years for sore muscles, headache and toddler bumps and bruises.

Important: do not get the pillows wet! Because the pillows are filled with natural flax seed, they will sprout if they get wet.

If the pillows get dirty, gently spot clean with a slightly damp cloth, but do not immerse or saturate with water.

All therapy pillows come with a set of Bamboobies washable nursing pads. Every time you use the pillows, be sure to use the washable nursing pads as leak protection for the pillows.

What is Bamboobies nipple balm and how does it work?

Bamboobies nipple balm is a 100% organic, plant-based formula that provides soothing relief for nipples. It is made with simple ingredients, lanolin-free, and is non-toxic, so no need to wipe off before feeding your baby.

Pro tips:

  • Apply to nipples after nursing or as needed
  • Since we use only natural ingredients, the consistency of the product may vary
  • Due to the organic ingredients in our nipple balm, it has a limited shelf life. We recommend ordering close to when you intend to use it.
  • Natural oils can stain clothing, we recommend pairing with either our washable or disposable nursing pads.

What is  Bamboobies organic pumping lubricant and how does it work?

A pumping mom must-have, our organic pumping lubricant helps reduce friction to make pumping easier and more comfortable. Lactation consultants recommend a lubricant for easier pumping and ours is made with natural and organic ingredients (coconut oil base) and is lanolin free!

To use, simply put a small drop on your nipples or flange before pumping. Please note: due to the ingredients of this product, separation may occur and is natural. This may cause white specks to form in the lubricant; however, they will melt with use.

Because natural oils can stain, we recommend pairing with our washable or disposable pads.
