Bamboobies Cloth Nursing Pads Giveaway!

“Like a cashmere sweater for my boobies.” Best. Testimonial. Ever.

POPflyer5X7

I think I might need to rename September “The Month of Awesome, Green Mama Businesses.” Bamboobies, cloth nursing pads, were created by a mother of two in Boulder and are handmade in Colorado of organic and sustainable fabrics.

Exasperated with disposable nursing pads, Kerry Gilmartin had a “make do” moment” that turned into a thriving home business. She shares:

“After breastfeeding for a few months, I was still leaking sometimes… I even leaked through the thick washable cotton pads. I was tired of looking like I had round targets on my chest where the pads showed through my shirt. Disposables also showed wrinkles and made crinkly diaper noises when I moved my arms.

So one day I decided, just because it was handy, to stuff a washable diaper wipe into my bra – it felt great, but it looked funny and was far from perfect. It was made of organic bamboo velour so it was deliciously soft and absorbed like a great pad should. I’d never felt anything so soft!

A year into product development and prototyping with different fabrics and designs, we have settled on a unique breast pad design that mothers and lactation consultants love.”

Bamboobies is offering 3 sets of organic cotton, hemp and bamboo nursing pads to three different winners! Choose between:

1. regular ultra-thin pads for when your milk supply is regulated, but you still have minor leaking, or

2. ultra-thick Overnights for the early days of nursing and heavy leaking or overnight leaking.

I wish these were around when I was nursing. I remember waking up with a soaked nightgown–and having to change my baby boy out of a milk-drenched pajama at 2am was not fun : )

Please visit www.buybamboobies.com for more info. Kerry has provided A la Mama readers with a special 20% off coupon code: MOM20.

  1. Overnight! These look great. I haven’t found any pads I love. Especially overnight, I’d soak through a pad in no time! And disposable pads just feel gross.

  2. I love the origin story! Not to mention the comfy, sustainable fabric choices. A nursing momma can never have too many boobie pads – especially ones that won’t run the risk of the milk “target”!

    I would love to win the regular ones!!

  3. The owners story about leaking through the cotton ones, is so true. It reminded me of when I had to use 2 pads. Anyway, love the heart shape ones and probably would love the overnight ones.

  4. I’d love to try the regular ones. I agree, the round-target-on-my-breast look is better than leaking in public, but it’s not a fun look.

  5. I want to try these! I have hated washables in the past, only because they seem to soak threw way too fast! But, you are RIGHT the crinkling and wrinkles with disposables are AWFUL! I am due in 2 days and have just resigned to the fact that I will wake up milk drenched, having to explain to my husband that no, I did not pee the bed. So… overnights might be my answer to saving me from a lot of embarrassment! :)

  6. I would love to try the overnight ones. I had some others that I used successfully during the day, but overnight is tough. Due w/ my second in the spring!

  7. Oh! Overnight please! I soak through nursing pads like nothing else (and it’s been four months already!). Maybe these things can help keep me leak-free lol

  8. The overnights would be great! We are expecting our 2nd child in March. I dislike the disposables… what a waste of money! Thank you :)

  9. The Overnight pads would be lovely.

    I used to have such a problem with heavy leaking when I first started BFing [but later on regulated].

    These would be amazing to use with our next baby. : )

  10. The overnights would be great! I am due in 3 1/2

    weeks. I’ve been leaking for about 5 months already – but very little. Have been able to make due with thinner pads, but I imagine when my milk comes in, I’ll need something a lot more substantial!

  11. Fantastic! I would love the overnights. Expecting baby #2 in Feb and I remember leaking non-stop with my son for several months. What a wonderful product/idea! (And yes, the disposables are terrible!!!)

  12. Would love either though prefer overnights. These are so cute and look wonderfully soft! Thank you for making such a wonderful product!

  13. Great giveaway, and thanks to Kerry for the coupon code! I, like most of these mamas, would be especially delighted to win the overnights.

  14. These look great! I have lilypadz, but they are really not great for the onset of nursing as they just collect the leak then it pour out all over…and the disposables are awful!! I nursed my DD for 2 1/2 years and am now starting fresh with my now 3 week old son! Overnights please!!!

  15. Would love to win some overnights! I’ve been leaking for a bit over a month, and I’m only 28 weeks pregnant…makes me wonder what will happen after baby boy arrives in December!

  16. in the early days, i would’ve needed about 5 overnights on each boob. but today, 9.5 months later, i think the regulars’ll be sufficient. fellow superleakers, never fear. your supply will be regulated someday! :)

  17. I wish I had these the past few weeks. I would love the regular, although Ill be ordering some of both to get me through till I’m not spewing milk everywhere!

  18. Wow-I SOO needed these when nursing my second child!! I would love to have the overnights for when my third child is born in just a few months!

  19. I’ve been wanting to try these! Last time I used disposable pads, since the few cheap cotton ones I tried were awful. Have heard so many great things about Bamboobies though… would love to try the regular ones! =)
    .-= Marcy´s last blog ..for shame =-.

  20. I could have used the overnight ones when my baby was first born but the regular ones would be great now. I have yet to find a breast pad that doesn’t leak!

  21. I am getting ready to start nursing when our third son is born (the end of November)! I would love the overnight… or the regular…. doesn’t matter! :-)

  22. I wish I would have known about these about 3 months ago when my little Pickle was born… I am most assuredly a “super leaker” :) I think regular would be great now though. What a wonderful idea!

  23. I have a 3 week old and would love to try the overnight pads. We have Been cloth diapering and love being “green” love the heart design!

  24. I’m 28 weeks pg with my first child and don’t have any nursing pads yet, so either would be great! Perhaps the overnight would be best to start with?
