Ah, the delights of brand-new postpartum boobs.
We all know how demanding breastfeeding is. Sometimes we need a little help, whether it be from a lactation consultant, supportive family/friends, supplementing… Each mama and baby are on their own journey and we support and respect the decisions you make. But one thing we all have in common is this: when that milk comes in…. yowza, engorgement city!
So that said: how are your boobs feeling?
We’ve got ya covered with Booby Tubes®! Made with organic cotton and filled with fresh, pliable flax seed, they’re a gel-free hot or cold pack in a clever spiral design to fit with wherever your breasts end up on the spectrum of size.
And while they were created as a key part of your breastfeeding toolkit, they’re great for anywhere you need a little extra warmth or cooling — especially for postpartum or period cramps. They can also be used for little ones with earaches, infants with tummy discomfort, as an ice pack for boo-boos … they’re multi-functional!
When warmed, they help encourage milk flow, avoid clogged ducts, promote let-down and comfort the symptoms of infection. Simply heat in the microwave for 20-40 seconds.
When used cold, they help reduce the swelling and tenderness of engorgement and weaning. Just store in the freezer for cooling comfort.
Or feel free to tuck them into your bra for relief as often as needed.
Wipe clean with a damp cloth. Do not submerge in water, or put them in the washing machine — the flax seeds may sprout!
You’re doing amazing work making that milk. Please know we’re cheering you on each step (or latch) of the way!
