Breastfeeding is a beautiful and natural thing, but let’s face it: It’s not always easy. It can be difficult and downright painful at times. As a mother of three, I’ve been there.
I founded SOFT Style Inc. to help make breastfeeding a more comfortable, enjoyable experience for other new mothers. When I discovered the amazing softness and absorption of bamboo fabric, I created bamboobies — washable bamboo fiber nursing pads — as a softer, less visible and leak-proof solution for leaky new moms. From there came the inspiration to design a nipple balm made with 100 percent organic ingredients, and to incorporate bamboo and organic cotton fiber into nursing clothing and accessories.
As women go through the process of pregnancy and breastfeeding, we think about natural products in a new way; we seek out products that keep our babies, our own bodies and the environment from harm. We also crave comfort and convenience. Sometimes, the make-it-or-break-it moments in breastfeeding come down to finding products that help soothe chafed nipples or mastitis, protect against leaking and make breastfeeding a more comfortable and achievable experience.
I believe bamboobiestm provide new moms with a simple, well-deserved luxury. Moms work hard to provide their new babies with as much comfort and love as possible. My job is to provide moms with ways to take care of themselves and nurture their own bodies, too.
