Our Analysis

These reusable, all-natural soothing pillows for painful and tired boobies provide two different levels of healing and temperatures; one side is made of very soft 100% bamboo rayon fleece while the other side is made of very soft bamboo rayon and organic cotton jersey. Inside the therapy pillows are flax seeds that retain heat from microwaving or coolness from freezing. The warmth opens up clogged ducts, increasing milk supply, while the cooling comforts sore breasts and nipples from engorgement. Handmade in Colorado, these gel-free pillows are large enough for all breast sizes and help new moms adjust to and continue breastfeeding.

It's important to remember, however, that Boob-ease Soothing Therapy Pillows should only be wiped clean with a damp cloth and air-dried, and should never get wet, machine-washed or -dried.
