Inside Boob Box: Our Products
You may be wondering, "what do I do with all of the products that come packed in my Boob Box?" And we get it. A box packed to the brim with breastfeeding essentials arrives at your door and you're expected to know what each item is for and how to best use it.
We're here to clear things up. Let's take a look at all of the products we carry and what purpose each serves.
Haakaa Silicone Pumps
Ask any breastfeeding mom what product she finds most useful — the Haakaa is sure to be her answer.
The Haakaa uses negative pressure suction to help pull and catch milk from your letdown that would otherwise be lost to your shirt. Nursing your baby on the right breast first? Fold the pump flange back, squeeze the base of the pump and suction to the left breast with the nipple centered. The Haakaa will gently pull and catch milk as it's let down.
The Haakaa can also be used as a manual hand pump for quick, on-the-go relief. Just suction to the breast and apply compression to the base of the pump for stimulation.
Haakaa Silicone Milk Storage Bags
Giving you a place to store the milk you save from your Haakaa pumps, hand pump or electric pump! The Haakaa silicone breast milk storage bags are perfect for on-the-go milk storage or long-term freezer storage. They are reusable, durable and can hold up to 9 ounces.
Heading back to work? Leaving for a quick day trip? Need to store some milk for future use? Get your hands on a pair of the Haakaa bags — the ultimate momcessory.
Earth Mama Organics Booby Tubes
The Earth Mama Organics Booby Tubes are designed to work double time — made with organic cotton shells and filled with flax seed, these hot + cold packs are your breast care besties. Heat Booby Tubes up in the microwave to comfort pains, promote milk letdown and avoid clogged ducts, or throw them in the freezer for a cold compress on tender, engorged breasts.
As milk production kicks into gear just days after giving birth, breast tenderness, engorgement and the need for relief all may increase. Keeping Booby Tubes on-hand to either heat tit up or cool tit down can help alleviate that discomfort.
Need a little help promoting milk letdown? Use Booby Tubes day, months, even years into your breastfeeding journey and watch the magic happen.
Double duty for double relief.
Earth Mama Organics Nipple Butter
Nipple care is so important in the early breastfeeding days and beyond. From day one postpartum, your nipples are adjusting to the norm of nursing a newborn — and they require a lot of TLC. Making sure they stay hydrated before and after nursing sessions will help alleviate discomfort from cracking and soreness.
Earth Mama Organics Nipple Butter is made with clean, organic ingredients that are all safe for baby to ingest so there's no need to wipe it off before a nursing session.
Cracked, sore nipples? Lather on the nipple butter before and after feedings. That hydration will help bring your nipples back to life.
Pain while pumping? You can use nipple butter on your nipples and pump flanges to keep everything running smoothly.
A deep latch and nipple butter. Just what the doctor ordered to be sure your nipples stay intact.
*P.S. — keep nipple butter on-hand. When baby starts teething, you'll be breaking this jar back out for added protection from those emerging fangs.
KeaBabies Nursing Pads
As the body's milk making process begins in the early days following birth, you may find that your breasts leak at the slightest sound of baby crying. Or even at the thought of baby crying.
The KeaBabies Nursing Pads are here to save the day. Made with organic bamboo cotton materials, these nursing pads are comfortable enough for all-day wear. Plus, our boxes come packed with 7 sets of these machine-washable pads so you have a set for every day of the week.
Pro tip — keep a set of nursing pads in your diaper bag in case of an emergency. You never know when the leakage will begin.
Copper Pearl Burp Cloths
When it comes to burp cloths, you can never have enough.
The Copper Pearl burp cloth sets that we carry are not only cute, but are also designed to lighten your laundry load. They are made in an oversized design, providing more shoulder coverage to avoid that line of spit up. They are durable, comfortable — for both mom and baby — and super high quality.
Our boxes come packed with a set of 3 burp cloths that are so cute, you'll be matching baby's outfit to the day's burp selection.
Lumipets LED Bear Night Light
This little bear night light provides just enough low light to help you navigate overnight nursing sessions. Don't disturb baby's sleep — or yours, for that matter — by turning bright, overhead lights on.
This light is portable and USB rechargeable for easy light in any room. Plus, it features 9 light color choices, 2 slow fade options, 3 sleep timer settings and a remote to manage it all.
Useful for mom for night nursing. Fun for baby when it's time to play.
