Going Green While Breastfeeding

Going green seems to be a big issue nowadays. If you are breastfeeding and are someone who is conscious about the conservation of our environment and want to do your part to take care of it then we have some suggestions for you.

There is nothing more natural than breastfeeding your baby. I understand that for some mums unfortunately this is not possible but if you can breast is best, both for your baby and the environment. Formula creates waste in terms of the packaging, as well as the energy spent to produce it, not to mention how expensive it is. By nursing your baby you have made a choice to go green already. Below are a couple more suggestions to go green a step further.

Nursing pads are necessary for every breastfeeding mother. Just imagine trying to survive without them. Your shirt would be soaking wet! You probably already know by now how important breastfeeding pads are, but did you know that there are different kinds of breastfeeding pads?

To begin with, the disposable pads are the worst. Not only are they expensive; but they also ruin our environment and create more waste. It would be a good idea to stay away from the disposable ones and settle for washable breast pads. Imagine how helpful washable breast pads are. No more buying boxes and boxes of disposable pads, because with your washable pads you just wash and reuse.

In addition to using washable pads, why not go one step further and use organic breastfeeding pads? These pads do not contain any harmful chemicals compared to using non-organic ones which are treated with toxic chemicals when manufacturing or processing the fabric. Furthermore, by using organic pads, such as bamboo breastfeeding pads, you reduce the risk of having sore or cracked nipples as organic breastfeeding pads have antibacterial properties thus protecting your breasts from any kind of infection.

Bambooby Buddies creates incredibly soft and absorbent Bamboo breast pads that will make your breastfeeding journey even more enjoyable. Check out our range and have a look at all the cute designs we currently offer!
