bamboob-ease Soothing Therapy Pillow Review and Giveaway
Since the guest post for today was a tip on how to heal a cracked nipple…let’s keep the spirit of healing boobies alive with a review of the new bamboob-ease Soothing Therapy Pillows!! Because we all know…if the boobies aren’t happy…nobody is happy!!
Bamboobies is a company dedicated to finding organic items to aid in breastfeeding health and happiness. A few months ago, I reviewed their amazing nursing pads. I was thrilled when they agreed to sponsor this breastfeeding event as well! They are an amazing company, with amazing ideas and products to promote breastfeeding as well as breast health and happiness!
The new bamboob-ease Soothing Therapy Pillow is just one more of Bamboobies brilliant ideas! This pillow made amazingly soft organic cotton and bamboo is just what any mother in pain needs! The pillow is filled with flaxseeds. The wonderfulness of flaxseeds is that they can be warmed up for heat and can be cooled down for cold. So whatever your boobies need, this soft pillow can give you! It is so simple to use too! To warm up, simply toss it in the microwave for 20-40 seconds! To cool down, simply toss it in the freezer for a little bit! The flaxseeds also allow the pillow to conform to your breast and get to those ouchy spots better.
This is perfect for any breastfeeding mother. We all have those times when we need cool for the boobies (ie. Engorgement pain, nipple pain, teething pain) and we have those times when we need heat for the boobies (ie. Open a clogged duct, stimulate let down, ease mastitis). Rather than having an assortment of breastfeeding accessories, this is the all in one item that can cover all of these needs! Just like the name bamboob-ease implies, this product is meant to ease whatever problem your boobies are having!
I was surprised and amazed at the softness of this pillow. It is extremely soft and plush, perfect to put next to such a sensitive area! I was also surprised by the size of this pillow! It is a nice, generous size to fit any breast size and to cover a lot of boobie area! Many times pain from engorgement, clogged duct, etc is on the side of the breast closer to the arm pit. Generally, a compress could only be in that area. This pillow is generously sized to cover more of the breast in order to provide more relief! I am a D cup and it nicely covers almost my entire breast!
Looking for more reasons to buy these? Who doesn’t have a thousand uses for a heat/cold pack? These are also the perfect size to heat up for a little one with a belly ache. Or cool for those boo-boos! Since the pillow is so nice and soft, it is more comforting than other heat/cold packs for little children!
My one and only complaint about this item…it is not washable. You can wipe the pillow with a damp cloth and air dry…but you cannot get it wet or machine wash. Therefore, if you are leaking a ton or think you might leak, you may want to wrap a washcloth around this pillow. It really stinks to cover the plush soft fabric, but since it is not washable, you almost have to! Likewise, be careful when microwaving this item that there is no food residue in your microwave. I put the pillow on a clean plate when microwaving so as to not get it dirty. Yes, I looked pretty silly putting my boobie pillow on a plate and microwaving it!!! J
Overall, I absolutely love this soothing therapy pillow! It is a genius invention created by a mother with lots of experience! Only a mother could think of something this brilliant! I love that you can heat or cool this pillow depending on what your need is and I love that it is just the right size to fit most any breast! I do wish that the cover was removable and washable, maybe they will do that next time!
