Gadget for breastfeeding with big breasts
The Booby Booster is a breastfeeding aid for women with large breasts. A hammock. A platform. A breast nest. A bada-bing sling.
The big idea of this invention is that if you have big boobs, it’s a pain in the wrist to hold those things for so long so frequently throughout the day every day for a year (or hopefully longer).
The booster is billed as attaching to any breastfeeding bra, designed to hold the breast higher during feeding with no slippage. Your babe just lies there sucking away in bliss.
Boy, I wish I had this when I was nursing my two kids. I’d unhook my nursing bra, and my whole boob would come cascading out. They’d get their faces squished because my boobs were sloshing over on them. Oh, no, wait, that’s my wife. I’m a guy. I wear an under-the-butt nut hut.
Disclaimer: I’m supposed to be the wordsmith in the family, but my wife is teaching me all sorts of new phrases today.
Anyhow, my nurse-wife tells nursing mothers to just tuck a rolled towel underneath their boob, but if you’re a gadget gal, here you go.
The sling is made of polyester quilting with a cotton exterior.It comes in sizes from Small to XXX large (16B to J through K cup sizes).
As with all innovative products, it seems, this one isn’t made in America. But for a change, the Aussie inventor will ship anywhere in the world, although the website could use some work. It seems you e-mail the inventor to arrange payment.
Booby Booster retails for AUD $30 (USD $27 at today’s conversion rate) and shipping is just AUD $6 to North America.
So, whathca think — would you use a rolled towel or a boobie gadget?
