Hi there! Thanks for checking out the about Bambooby Buddies story.
My name is Tina and I live in Melbourne with my husband Mark and my two beautiful kids, Olivia and Cooper. When I was a new mum with Olivia I used disposable breast pads not realising that there was any other option, but when Cooper came along I thought there must be something better than this.
After doing a bit or research I decided to have a go at making washable breast pads. At first I made them out of some old fleece I had lying around. They were much better than the disposable ones but not quite absorbent enough. So I did some more research and decided that Bamboo fabric was the best option.
Not only is bamboo fabric super absorbent, it is also good for the environment as it doesn’t require pesticides to grow and it is 100% bio-degradable. Bamboo fabric also has antibacterial qualities, which is maintained through multiple washes, which helps to reduce bacteria and un-pleasant odours.
After many trial runs and testing through friends Bambooby Buddies was born.
I hope you like them and that they help you with your breastfeeding journey.
