It's a bit late I know, but Happy New Year to all our customers and followers!
This year is going to be very exciting here at BoobBaby. We are planning on introduding lots of new products to the website. In January, we introduced some nursing necklaces and resuseable breastfeeding pads and over the next couple of months there will be lots of more exciting products hitting the website. For a full run down on the introduction of nursing necklaces and breastfeeding reminder bracelets from Babybeads-UK and on the introduction of reuseable bamboo nursing pads from Littlelamb, pop over the the blog. Where the is also a competition to win some Littlelamb nursing pads.
What is a Nursing Necklace
Many of us have been there, a distractible baby who finds everything else more interesting than having a feed. There have been several occasions when I’ve nearly had my nipple taken off as my son turned round when feeding to see what that interesting sound was (ouch)! A nursing necklace can help with these distractible phases by keeping your baby’s attention and prevent the fiddling and head turning that some breastfeeding mums experience. Babybeads-UK necklaces consist of brightly coloured, attractive acrylic beads. They are worn by mum whilst feeding to keep baby’s focus on the breast area, encouraging baby to explore the necklace rather than the distractions!
What is a Breastfeeding Reminder Bracelet
A breastfeeding reminder bracelet is simply a bracelet that helps you to remember whichside to feed from next. All you do is to simply change the wrist at the end of each feed, so that you are reminded of which breast you need to start with next time!

About Littlelamb Nappies Bamboo Breast Pads
These breast pads are made from double layered bamboo fleece which has a laminate backing to help prevent leaks. They are slim and as such offer discrete protection when tucked inside your bra. As they are made from bamboo, they are naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
The pads are available in two sizes, 11cm and 13cm (diameter). The 11cm pads are suitable for most breastfeeding mothers, but the 13cm hold and cover more. They are also available in two different colours, natural and black. The pads are sold in packs of 5 pairs which are tied with a ribbon to reduce packaging
Like bamboo nappies, they will need a few washes before they reach their full absorbency level. You should notice that with each wash they become more absorbent. We recommend that they are washed before their first use and that they are washed without fabric conditioner.
Bamboo is a super absorbent fibre with a luxuriously soft feel. It’s often quoted as 40% more absorbent than cotton, meaning that both nappies and breast pads made from bamboo are not only thirstier than cotton, but less bulky too.
All of the bamboo used by Littlelamb comes with the Oeko-tex100 certification, which is as close to organic as bamboo can get.
If there is any particular product that you think we should be stocking, please contact us, we would love to hear from you.
