After 2 weeks of having these booby tubes, the beads started falling out. :(. ------------------------------------------------- Earth Mama HQ response: We’re sorry to hear that your pair of Booby Tubes seem to have sprung a leak.

Booby Tubes® are clever little natural, gel-free breast packs made with a 100% organic cotton shell and filled with all-natural flax seed. Use warm or cold, depending on your nursing needs. When heated, Booby Tubes® deliver warm, moist heat to tender breasts; when stored in the freezer they offer cooling comfort. Traditionally used to help ease breastfeeding discomfort, heat can help encourage milk flow, avoid clogged ducts, promote let-down and comfort the symptoms of infection, and cold is used to help reduce the swelling and tenderness of engorgement and weaning.
Earth Mama's unique gel-free construction was designed with extra care to help reduce the risk of burns. Two Booby Tubes® per box, one for each…well, boob.
A QUICK HOW-TO
Warm Booby Tubes® in your microwave for 20-40 seconds, and apply as necessary. Or store in the freezer and wear them inside your bra between feedings. Pair with mindful breathing as needed (because ladies: the breastfeeding struggle is real).
How do I clean my Booby Tubes®?
Wipe the organic cotton with a damp cloth. Don't submerge them in water or put them in a washing machine — the flax seeds may sprout (seriously)!
A little bird told us mamas use them for:
- A cool pack to comfort bumps and bruises, ballooning feet and ankles.
- A warm pack to comfort upset tummies, tired muscles, and fussy, tugged-at ears.

This product truly is amazing! I was a little skeptical at first, because I always struggled with pumping, but after my c-section my daughter stayed a few days in the nicu, and I had to pump to feed her, the booby tubes help relieve some of the discomfort I was feeling and it worked great!
This booby tubes were life savers when I had my baby. My boobs were in so much pain that i couldn't even breastfeed, after buying them and using them I was in so much relief. I just loved loved them. 10-14-2015
I love these. Before getting these I was using a heating pad and ice pack. Booby Tubes are SO much better. The best thing about these is the size. I love that they go exactly where they need too and small enough to fit in your bra. Second best thing is that they double as a heating pad/ice pack! I have recommended these to all of my new mommy friends. 4-27-2015
Booby Tubes were really helpful after my mastectomy, both cool (and they were able to work around the uncomfortable drain tubes) and warm when I was having nerve pain. 3-4-2015
Love how soft organic it is but wasn't as great add everyone says especially for the price too expensive. 1-16-2014
5 stars plus. I loved them while nursing and now I keep them in the freezer and they are an awesome gentle ice pack alternative. My son likes it so much that he asks for his 'white ouchie fixer' when ever he gets a bump or bruise. 4-18-2014
It helps so much when your milk comes in and thinks your feeding a baby army! Plus it goes way beyond that! You can use it to sooth tummy aches and ear aches. You can use it in a cooler. Sore muscles... the list goes on and on! 4-18-2014
As a first-time mom, breastfeeding has been quite a challenge. I don't know if I could have felt as supported without my Booby Tubes! They have offered me relief before and after so many feedings. Not only was the cold or the hot a relief, but the smell was so comforting. I am planning to send all of my girlfriends a set when I find out they are pregnant. Thank you so much for a wonderful product! 7-17-2009
I have Raynaud's and found Booby Tubes at Whole Foods - I can't tell you how much you saved the day. Nursing my 10 week old hurt so much that I was going to give up! I filled a sock with rice and heated it up and placed it in my bra but it was too big and smelled bad. With Raynaud's smaller arteries that supply blood to my skin narrow, limiting blood circulation to my nipples, so my poor nipples hurt like heck when my baby would nurse. I've had the tubes for a week or so now and the nursing doesn't hurt and my nipples are now able to heal!! Thanks so much. 3-7-2010
