Free Bamboobies nursing pads for WBW!

My friend Amy alerted me to this deal for World Breastfeeding Week.

You can get FREE Bamboobies nursing pads all week in honor of WBW. You must pay only the shipping of $4.95 to thew U.S. or Canada.

International customers should email first to get a shipping quote, but they can order as well. This offer is good through August 7.

The regular price of Bamboobies is $8.50 plus s/h, so this is a nice way to try them out!

These breastfeeding pads are reportedly Amy's favorites. They're made of a super-soft bamboo velour and are guaranteed to be more discreet under clothing while remaining ultra-absorbent. I could use both features, for sure!

I much prefer reusable pads over disposables, but I have a heavy letdown and have had problems so far this newborn period with my WAHM-made assortment. I first was using a pair of fleece and flannel pads that got me through my leaking period with Mikko, but I kept soaking through them this time around. Just completely saturating them, and then my bra, cami, and shirt as well! Not pretty.

So I switched to my wool pair, and they've been workhorses in sopping up the liquid — but not so much in the streamlined department. I do not need to pad my bras, and unfortunately that's what this amounts to! With all the corresponding lumps and bumps and visible lines.

So, free Bamboobies, here I come. I'll let you know what I think!

In the meantime, a little breastfeeding-related news:
