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

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 : )
