Like many mums, after having my baby I struggled with incontinence. It's not something we particularly enjoy talking about, but it's extremely common after pregnancy and giving birth. Our pelvic floor just isn't the same!
I've always hated wearing panty liners, but I was getting to the point where I had to consider something. My postpartum bleeding had stopped, so I didn't need a full pad anymore. Personally I have had issues with thrush when using other brands of panty liners, so needless to say I wasn't excited about having to use them.
While browsing the options at the supermarket, I stumbled across Bamboo Babe. An Australian company, all their products are made with 100% organic bamboo. Bamboo is fast becoming the sustainable wonder product we've all be looking for, so I thought I'd give them a go.
Well, wow! I tried the panty liners and they are the best liners I have ever worn. They are sticky all over, so they don't bunch or move around. They're big enough but not too big. But most of all they are COMFORTABLE. They stay super dry against the skin and they're very thin. You won't even notice you're wearing them.
Even better, all products come in compostable packaging! I have an at-home compost and I just biff the packaging in there. I'll update this post in a few months when I use the compost to let you know if they're still there!
The pads themselves are compostable too, but I haven't tried composting them. According to Bamboo Babe, in an ideal microbial environment they'll break down in 6 months or so. So innovative, and a more earth friendly option than most of the mainstream brands.
I still haven't had a period since having my babe so I can't review the other products on offer, but I'll certainly be giving these a go when it returns!
