I bought this for myself just before I had my second baby. It's a great set for any expecting or new mom! The tea is pretty good, though I had to add Splenda to mine. I went back online and ordered several boxes of it after I tried it in this set. The Booby Tubes are great! They were very comfortable and don't give you that bulky feel that regular gel pads have. I used them not only for me before and after nursing, but also on my little one's belly when he got a tummy ache. I have now stopped breast feeding, but still use these for (warm) upset bellies and (cold) on foreheads for fevers, etc. The Bosom Buddies herbal compress, I am not a big fan of, but I think that is just me personally. I tried it twice and could never really get the hang of it. (I think I was "over thinking" it.) Now the Nipple Butter I am an absolute fan of!!! I love, love, love this stuff! I put it on before (lightly) and after (heavier) breast feeding. I even put some on my chapped lips after noticing how soft and smooth it made my finger tips after applying it. It is totally safe for both you and baby, which is a must! I ordered a large jar of this after I used up my small jar that came with this set! I highly recommend this product!
The kit is nice. I bought it for myself as a nursing aid. The tea is tasty, the compress herbs smell warm and earthy...but don't have much of an effect, and the warmers are very soothing. Just dont forget the warmers in your bra when you sleep...the pressure may cause ductal plugs. I found the nipple balm to be a little oily...plain lanolin works better.
I bought everything from this company thinking it would be great and ended up throwing it all away. The booby tubes and tea bags were a waste, what worked was getting in a hot shower and using a thick, wide toothed comb and raking my breast under the hot water. The nipple butter did nothing for me at all, what worked was Peter Rabbits Organics baby oil, it's all natural and organic and safe enough to eat but this oil was a miracle worker when my nipples would be sore this oil would heal them between feedings. I call it my miracle oil because it worked miracles on my baby as well.
I used the Booby Tubes and the Nipple Butter in the first couple months of breastfeeding and they were life-savers! You can heat up the Booby Tubes and wear them before you feed your baby and it helps soothe your breasts and bring the milk down. I kept them in the freezer most of the time to soothe my sore nipples. Use the Nipple Butter too, it's natural and very moisturizing. Great products!
This was given to me as a gift by my MIL and I am so grateful for it. The nipple butter is amazing and has kept me from being sore. The booby tubes are so comforting, especially when you are engorged. I would highly recommend this product to all new moms.
