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.*
You'll be as pleased as Mama is to know they are made in the USA in a fair trade factory.
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!

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

I woke up yesterday with a case of mastitis. I suppose I slept on my side funny? I friend gave me her Booby Tubes to use. I could feel a major difference by bed time. Now I can continue nursing my 14 month old daughter with out so much pain. WONDERFUL PRODUCT. 3-29-2010

I got a call from my daughter's preschool this morning saying she was having another case of painful constipation. After taking her to the chiropractor (screaming and hunched over with gas pain), we got home and I heated up the Booby Tubes in the microwave. As it turns out, if you unfold them, they are the exact shape and size of a four year old's abdomen. With the warmth, she went to sleep almost instantly. And, she wouldn't go to bed without her tummy circles. Only, she wanted the temperature 'just right' which took a little figuring out (30 seconds of heating, no more, no less). I had to share! 12-22-2009

One of my friends got me the Breastfeeding Support Kit and it was WONDERFUL. I still use the Booby Tubes if I get a headache and I've used them on at least one occasion in my lunchbag to help keep things cool! 7-17-2009

These were the best things ever! Never too hot or cold. They are the perfect size too. I left one on the couch and my dog ate it, and the other one was washed with the laundry. Apparently flax sprouts after it is soaked in the wash. I will have to get a second set. 2-14-2014

Oh my gosh - if I didn't have the Natural Nipple Butter and the Booby Tube I would have given up on breastfeeding. Can we say OWWWWWW? My little precious girl thanks you SOOO much for those amazing products. ' XO 7-17-2009
