Booby Tubes® are clever little, gel-free breast packs made with an organic cotton shell and filled with fresh, pliable 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.
