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