Sick of your milk letting down at inconvenient times? Then you may want to invest in getting some nursing pads. In today's article we are reviewing the Bamboobies Washable Reusable Nursing Pads with Leak-Proof Backing for Breastfeeding.
The Bamboobies Washable Reusable Nursing Pads with Leak-Proof Backing for Breastfeeding has three different layers.

The outer leak-proof layer, which is the last layer, is made from 100% Polyester with TPU Waterproofing.
In this package you will receive 3 pairs of ultra-thin regular pads, and one pair of thick overnight pads. All of the pads are reusable. The regular pads are heart shaped to prevent wrinkles.

I've read through the customer feedback, and then condensed the results into this review. I hope that this helps you when shopping for a nursing pad.
Customers have raved about the comfort of these nursing pads. Here is one of many comments,
"They are incredibly soft and shockingly absorbent. I have a generic set of pads that I use sometimes that are not nearly as soft and they are much thicker, but not even close to being as absorbent."
May Move Around
The shape and material that these pads are made from aren't the best for staying in place. Here is one of the comments on this issue of movement,
"They are cut to lay completely flat, not fitted to the curve of your breast at all, so they bunch and fold uncomfortably when actually worn. They also shift around a lot, as there's nothing to hold them in place, and end up in unfortunate places."
Cute Shape But Not Functional Shape
While these heart shaped pads are very cute, the majority of comments about the shape were that they were not functional. Here is one of the comments,
"The heart shaped pads are super annoying though, they look cute, but it never fails that they shift in your bra and the crook of the heart falls below your nipple and your bra gets wet when you leak/have let down on the side baby isn’t nursing."
These pads are very absorbent. The reason for nursing pads in the first place are for absorbency. These pads received good reviews for how well they absorbed milk that leaked out of the breasts. Many customers had similar experiences to share as this lady shared,
"Super absorbent and comfy to wear and while you can see them under your shirt if you're really really looking hopefully no one but the baby is that close to your nips at that point. I love that they were easy to wash and quick drying. And the night time ones are for sure workhorses. I once had an all day event where I couldn't pump for almost 7 hours - needless to say I was leaking like a faucet. Although the side closest to me was soaked my shirt was dry! Fantastic product. I now buy them for all of my expecting friends!"
Hefty Price Tag
Unfortunately, these nursing pads are expensive. I'm not sure why, but it may be the novelty of the heart shapes that makes the company want to ask for more than they are worth. But despite the high price, people do still buy them and many like these pads. A customer had this to share about the price,
"My only complaint is that the price prohibits me from buying as many as I would like so I can cut down on how often I have to launder them."
The Bamboobies Washable Reusable Nursing Pads with Leak-Proof Backing for Breastfeeding are a unique pad because they come in a cute heart shape. While the shape does nothing for the function and actually works against the shape of the human breast, some people still found them cute enough to buy. However, more complained about the heart shape than those who liked the shape. The best features of these pads are that they are absorbent and soft. They do carry an inflated price tag, though. I hope my review of the Bamboobies Washable Reusable Nursing Pads with Leak-Proof Backing for Breastfeeding can help you decide if you should try these nursing pads.
