Breastfeeding is not easy. Whoever said it is, is just trying to spare you! Haha. But seriously, whether you are a first time mom or a seasoned vet, nursing your baby can definitely have its ups and downs – although I believe that it is always worth it in the end! With that said, it’s nice to be able to find products that help make the whole experience easier and more enjoyable – and the products by Bamboobies definitely help to accomplish that!

FOR MOMS and MOMS-TO-BE
Based on a personal mission to provide natural, comfortable higher-quality and more modern breastfeeding support products for new moms everywhere – thanks to the founder’s own breastfeeding “issues” – Bamboobies is now a line of more than 10 award-winning breastfeeding support products, all of which have the comfort and health of both mom and baby in mind!
What began as a singular idea (of nursing pads made of bamboo materials), has now grown into a company that offers a whole line of products, including such things as: EcoPure® Bamboo Disposable Nursing Pads, boob-ease® 100% Organic Nipple Balm, nursing bras and tanks, as well as the Chic Nursing Shawl and other accessories.
Here’s some more info about some of Bamboobies’ best sellers:
Bamboobies Washable Nursing Pads: Made of ultra-soft and soothing bamboo rayon velour, an absorbent inner layer, and an outer milk-proof™ liner to help prevent embarrassing leaks, Bamboobies are available in two absorbencies – ultra-thin, heart-shaped regular nursing pads for light leaking and round-shaped overnight nursing pads for heavy leaking and newborn nursing. And while not completely invisible, they are much less obvious than other washable nursing pads thanks to the fine stitching on their edges.
Boob-ease® 100% Organic Nipple Balm: 100% Organic and lanolin-free, this nipple balm helps new moms who suffer from sore and cracked nipples in the first few weeks of baby’s life. Completely non-toxic, all ingredients are safe for ingestion by your breastfeeding baby, unlike the other creams that must be wiped off before feedings.
Bamboobies® Chic Nursing Shawl: This versatile shawl is not only essential for nursing, but is stylish and discreet so no one will know it’s a nursing cover – and can therefore be worn both before and after your baby arrives.
Bamboobies® Nursing Brahhh: This wire-free bra combines super-soft rayon from bamboo with your typical seamless nursing bra style to give you both comfort and soft support that is more breathable, softer and eco-friendly than cotton or nylon.
Kerry Gilmartin, founder and creator of Bamboobies, is a mom of three young children (ages 10 and under), who came up with the idea after needing a solution to her “leaking problem” and for finding a pad that wouldn’t show through her shirt. After turning a square of bamboo velour fabric into a makeshift pad, she knew she was on to something. Realizing that eco-friendly bamboo fabric provided a luxurious feel and incredible functionality, Gilmartin launched bamboobies to address the need for comfortable, eco-friendly nursing pads that really work.
Now, nearly 10 years later, and thanks to Kerry’s background in business, her initial idea of original and overnight Bamboobies nursing pads has blossomed into a whole line of products to help address women’s pregnancy and new mother challenges. And with a mission to “ensure that new mothers and babies are happier and healthier and so is their world”, Bamboobies is doing just that!
Starting at $14.99 for a pack of 2, Bamboobies actually cost less over the typical length of time that a nursing mother would generally use disposable breast pads. In fact, they are actually only about 1/10th of the cost! Check out their website (linked below), for prices on additional items.

WHERE TO BUY:
As a Mom of 2, and with #3 on the way, I know how important and beautiful breastfeeding is…. although I admit it’s not always easy! From waking up with a soaking wet shirt or “leaking” out in public, to having cracked nipples that are so painful you can’t imagine feeding your baby until they are completely healed – but you of course do the next time she cries – there are definitely ups and downs in nursing.
With that said, the end result is the most rewarding thing you can imagine – whether you can only make it for a couple weeks or are able to nurse your baby for a couple years! And with Bamboobies, you don’t have to go at it alone!
Bamboobies was founded by a Mom who has been in your shoes and who came up with the original idea of bamboo-based nursing pads because she was having issues too. Now, with a full line of products for pregnant and nursing moms, Bamboobies is here to help make your breastfeeding journey as effortless and enjoyable as possible.
Try any or all of Bamboobies products today and remember to take note that they have multiple hospital bag must-haves for the next time you plan on bringing another beautiful bundle into this world!
