When I received the Booby Tubes for review I giggled at the name but wasn’t sure when I would need to use them. I didn’t get overly engorged this time so I didn’t have the need to freeze them and use them. I was sure I wouldn’t need them for any other reason but I was, unfortunately wrong.
I got mastitis the day before my daughters second birthday and I have never been so sick in my life. I was achy, had terrible chills and had a fever of 101.4. I couldn’t get out of bed and my mom and my husband had to care for my children (minus the breastfeedling). I remembered that I had received the Booby Tubes and asked my hubby to put them in the microwave. In just 30 seconds the tubes were hot and I applied one to my breast under my bra. That along with massage (and, unfortunately, antibiotics) my mastitis slowly went away. I continued to use the Booby Tubes even after the pain went away.
The only downside to these is that they have a natural fold in the middle and the beads inside go to both sides so the you have to move the beads back into the middle area so that the area is covered.
These were very comforting and definitely soothed my breast during mastitis. I would definitely recommend them to new moms- keep them in the cupboard just in case!
