Bumby Booby Backup’s are designed to catch leaks while breastfeeding. The rounded triangle shape contours to your body and mimics the shape of your bra. They are antibaterial which means they clean very easily and smell fresh.
Many find that wool helps reduce the symptoms that many moms face with lactation such as Mastitis, Thrush and Raynaud’s syndrome
Easy care: Hand or machine wash in lukewarm water on gentle with mild detergent. Do not use fabric softener other than Unicorn soft as it will cause repelling issues. Air dry is best. They are preshrunk so shrinking is not an issue however the fibers prefer air-drying.

Some notes from Stephanie - founder and maker of these amazing pads:
6. I remember being a total zombie and losing stuff when my kids were young, fumbling in the dark looking for things. Glow in the dark, so you know what side to go away from the breast and maybe more easily find it on the table, floor, under the bed or wherever. It had to be small so you couldn't see it through the bras. (Reflecting on my 20 year old self with fake nails in the club waving my hands around like a princess). it has to be cute, so thought hearts. but not too cutesy or babyish, because you are a queen now and we deserve sophisicated hearts. Then we (naomi) came up with the idea for a heart like a B for bumby but still a heart shape. boom perfect.
When I asked Clothe In Love for recommendations on nursing pads, I was pointed to the Bumby Booby Backups that were originally hidden on the site. I've used them for nearly 3 weeks now and am happy to post my honest review 😄
Disclaimer: Before using them, I was using disposable nursing pads, so I have no basis of comparison between reusables. But am happy with my experience anyway!
At $27.50 for a set of 4/2 pairs, this isn't the cheapest option for nursing pads. But, you'll be getting bang for your buck since they are so luxe and comfortable! The inner layer (that goes against your skin) is cotton, while the outer layer is merino wool. This makes it super absorbent and breathable at the same time, with the cotton working to soak up all the excess letdown, while the wool allows your skin to breathe, even when the pads are worn for an entire day. What a world of difference from the disposable nursing pads I'd been using - I tried at least 3 brands of disposables and all made me itch non-stop!
I described nursing to a non-mummy friend as "incontinence from your boobs" 😭 But with these Booby Backups, I don't feel the leaks at allI! In fact, wearing them is even more comfortable than going bra-less as I don't have to deal with soppy shirts anymore. The only danger is not knowing when I have letdown, so my milk is somewhat "wasted", so you are warned! 😂
