As a brand spanking new mother, I was a mess. An absolute mess. No sleep, check. Uncomfortable to stand, sit, walk, sneeze, you name it, thanks to my 50 hour labor and having pushed an 8 pound bouncing baby boy out of my hoo-hah, CHECK! And to top it all off, I was using reusable nursing pads (that I'd received as a gift) and they were a freaking joke. A JOKE!! My mammaries must have thought they were trying to feed an entire village, and these nursing pads lasted all of 5 minutes before they were soaked through. And you know what? I thought this was normal. I thought this is the humiliating kind of thing breastfeeding moms have to deal with. I'll just have to stock up on a bunch of flowy black tops that won't show my milk stains quite so bad. I remember standing over my newborn baby at the changing table, as milk was literally dripping out of my soaked shirt, bra, and pads. Yuck. yuck. yuckkkkkkk...
I don't remember who enlightened me that there were other brands and types of breast pads out there. Even disposable ones! The second I bought a box at my local Rite Aid and stuffed a pair in my bra it was like a whole new world! Hoorah!!! No looking back now!!
Going through this inspired me to come up with Miny Moe, which sells variety packs of multiple brands of diapers and nursing pads. Also a huge inspiration was going through the equally terrible situation with my newborn son's diapers not containing his, how do I put this gently, digested breastmilk?
The problem I saw was that you can't buy an individual pair of nursing pads out there, not disposables or washables. And really, that's all it would take to figure out if you like the brand. Just a single pair! So, that's what Miny Moe gives you! Our Basic Mama Disposable Nursing Pad Sampler gives you a pair each from 3 top brands of disposable breast pads: Lansinoh, Johnson's, and Nuk. Our Green Mama Nursing Pad Sampler gives you a pair each of 3 top brands of washable breast pads: Bamboobies, Itzy Ritzy, and Philips Avent. And finally, our Mega Mama's Nursing Pad Sampler gives you a pair each from all 6 of those brands, both washable and disposable.
Miny Moe Diaper Samplers were born from the same problem: you can't just go to the store and get a few disposable diapers to try out. Oh no, you have to commit to a big ol' box of at least 50 diapers, but if you're trying to be economic you're looking at more like 150 diapers. I thought I was being smart by putting newborn diapers on my baby registry and stocking up before my munchkin even arrived! But nope, the brand I had randomly chosen did NOT fit my little guy's tooshie. We went through a couple more brands and failures before finding one we liked. With Miny Moe around, no parents should have to go through this kind of frustration! Miny Moe's Diaper Samplers come in a variety of packs including the top name brands (Huggies, Pampers, Luvs), generic store brands (Target Up & Up, Walmart Parent's Choice), and environmentally-friendly brands (The Honest Company, Seventh Generation, Earth's Best, Naty).
