Bamboobies protects clothing from leakage while soothing sore nipples. These washable bamboo nursing pads are free of Super Absorbent Polymer, SAP, common in throwaway pads and disposable diapers. The variety pack includes three pairs of ultra-thin, heart-shaped, daytime use pads and three sets of thick, circular pads for overnight use. However, if you are a heavy leaker, you may need to stock up on the thicker night pads for daytime use. Did we mention they are super soft? They are fabricated of bamboo rayon velour and have an inner absorbent cotton core. Wash with cold water and completely dry fabric with a low heat setting. Do not use fabric softeners as this can affect absorbency. If discoloration appears, Bamboobies recommends using a mild bleach solution.

This company used to make these nice products in Colorado. Now they are making these items in China. If you don't care about that the products will be fine for you, but I find this quite disappointing. :(

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.

Not as absorbent as a night pad. If you leak a lot I wouldn't suggest these. I would suggest a over night pad that holds more. It's overall an okay pad. Doesn't stick to the bra great moves around a lot.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.
