Bumby Booby Backups
Bumby’s got your back, ok technically your front.
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. The softest Organic Cotton Interlock caresses the skin, absorbing quickly and drawing the moisture to the highly absorbent Organic Cotton Fleece core. These layers are backed with our famous breathe-able Bumby Wool Interlock, naturally blocking leaks.
This set includes 4 Standard 3 layer pads measuring approximately 5″ across in an organza satchel.
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! 😂
