Earth Mama- Booby Tubes
- Calculated at Checkout
Ah, breastfeeding. Something so perfectly natural can be a pain in the breast! Once you get it down it'll all be worth it, but 'til then Mama made Booby Tubes® to help ease the discomforts of your mamariffic mammaries. Booby Tubes® are natural, safe, gel-free breast packs made with a organic cotton shell and filled with natural flax seed. Use warm or cold, depending on your nursing needs.
When heated, Booby Tubes® safely deliver warm, moist heat to tender breasts to encourage milk flow, help prevent clogged ducts, promote let-down and comfort the symptoms of infection. Mama's unique gel-free construction was designed with extra care to help reduce the risk of burns. Simply warm Booby Tubes® in your microwave for 20-40 seconds OR preheat your oven to the lowest setting and place them in an oven-safe dish for 10-15 minutes.
Store Booby Tubes® in the freezer and wear them inside your bra between feedings to help reduce the swelling and tenderness of engorgement and to comfort breasts during weaning.
Two Booby Tubes per box, one for each side!
How do I heat my Booby Tubes™ if I don't have a microwave?
One of our intrepid Mama's Helpers took Booby Tubes™ home for a little experiment. The results were terrific - as long as you don't forget to take the Booby Tubes out of the oven! Preheat your oven to the lowest setting (that was 170 degrees on Mama's Helper's oven), place your Booby Tubes in an oven-safe dish, away from the heating element, and heat them for 10-15 minutes. Mama's Helper says, “After 15 minutes they don't seem to get much warmer, so that seems to be all the time they need. Please set a timer and keep a very close eye on them while they are in the oven!”
How do I clean my Booby Tubes™?
Just wipe the organic cotton with a damp cloth. It is important that you don't submerge them in water or put them in a washing machine as they are filled with flax seeds and if they get wet, they may sprout (really!!).
What else do mamas use them for?
Use cooled to help reduce swelling of banged up toddling knees and elbows, and to help relieve tired, swollen mama feet and ankles!
Use warmed to help ease upset tummies, and to help relax sore necks and shoulders!
