Bosom Buddies Breastfeeding Oils Reviews

Product Tested By Rafia Mohammed – Halima 3 Months

Rafia Awarded The Bosom Buddies Breastfeeding Oils 5/5

I was quite surprised by how small they were. I thought it wouldn’t be enough but I was very wrong. Only a few drops are needed and they go a long way. These oils do exactly as they are advertised.  Instructions were clear and easy to follow.  Found these all very easy to apply. The ‘Ouch’ oil I found this to be effective and I absolutely loved the fragrance it left. To be honest I did still feel tired but that’s down to waking up at night. So I didn’t feel that this oil helped with relaxing my mind. Although using this oil was soothing and I felt nourished. I loved the aroma. When massaging the ‘Ooh!’ oil on my breasts it felt soothing and it really helped. I felt that with the use of this oil and massaging, I was able to help release milk which resulted in my breasts no longer being engorged. I didn’t think this oil uplifted my exhaustion. But to use this oil it had a lovely fragrance. The ‘Aah!’ oil was very effective in helping with milk production and flow. I did feel this to helped a little with my anxiety. I really liked the aroma too. Totally confident using these oils as natural and safe. I would use these religiously every day. In relation to improving soreness I noticed improvement after using for a day or two. Helping with anxiety and stress again after a few uses. But they didn’t specifically help with my anxiety or stress. It was just nice to use. I think I am an over stressed and anxious person. I do agree these help with your breastfeeding journey  because the use of the different fragrances/ ingredients are fairly nice to use. And it’s quite nice for a new mum to be able to pamper herself. Running around looking after children and then a newborn can be extremely exhausting. Getting in a little pamper session is lovely. My child didn’t seem to be bothered at all by these oils. She only 3 months bless her.  The quality of these oils is excellent.  Great value because although the bottles may look tiny you only need a small amount for the massage and area for usage. I would purchase these again once I have run out and this would make an amazing little gift for any new mum. I would recommend for the same reason.  I really enjoyed using these oils and would definitely use them again and gift them for a new mum about to embark on their breastfeeding journey.

I thought they looked nice, I like the packaging. I was surprised the box was so tiny but realised why when I opened it’s because the product is sold as essential oils not a ready to use product. I liked the idea of it and wished I had had a box to try at the beginning when my nipples were sore and before my supply stabilised. Instructions are easy to follow. But do not advise how much water to put the drops in. When your extremely busy with house, school run, dogs etc. The whole thing of having to mix it and then get wet cloths and cover your breast for half an hour and then then wash. My baby feeds often so that is even more of a Faf. If it could be made in to a lotion that could be rubbed in it would be a lot easier. I did find the ‘Ouch’ oil worked well. Although my baby was 4 months when I started using this so my breasts had already got to the not often sore stage it worked well. I applied after Aurelia had been feeding half the night and firstly the scent was wonderful and I found it calming. The cool water with the oils made my breast feel soothed and refreshed me for the next feed. I definitely felt more relaxed and calmer. It helped me to take five minutes out and have a little me time. I would think it would be nice in a defuser to relax with. I loved the slightly masculine scent of the oil. It’s very pleasant.  I tried the ‘Ooh!’ oil a few times when my breasts were engorged and found it definitely eased the pressure and feeling of being too full. I have not thankfully had mastitis to try it out on though. I will definitely be keeping it in the cupboard for when I give up feeding to help with the pressure. I don’t think it affected my mood at all. The aroma is not unpleasant but I did not like it. I found after using the ‘Aah!’ oil a lot one day it seemed to help up supply a little along with keep putting baby to breast a lot. I did find it relieved stress and help to relax me. I found the aroma to be pleasant but not as nice as ouch. I was not concerned about using essential oils on myself, it’s all natural products. I tried the Aah on and off over a couple of days to see if it would do its job. I tried the ouch twice as I  don’t get sore breasts much to need to use. Ooh was used to relieve engorged breasts when I was waiting for my baby to wake to feed and worked well. In relation to helping soreness it relieved them instantly upon laying the soaked cloth on the breast but once the baby was feeding again it helped a little but not a huge amount. I am not an anxious worried person but while I could smell it I felt relaxed but after it made no difference. I found instant relief from ouch, they are relaxing too. If you have the ability to sit at home all day doing nothing it would enable you to use them more and probably then be more effective.  My daughter liked having a nicely scented mummy that was relaxed.  The  quality of the product is very good. I have not seen others on the market to put it against. These are good value as not expensive for three bottles of essential oils that will help your feeding journey. Personally I would not buy these  because my life is too busy for soaking cloths and waiting half an hour etc. If it was a rub in lotion I would buy it. I would recommend as I they worked and were helpful. It does work but not fantastically so and the more difficult way to use it knocks a mark off. I found it a nice little box with 3 products inside that would all be useful to a new mum who’s trying to establish breastfeeding her baby. It’s not as useful a few months down the line but I would use it to help with engorgement when giving up or if baby is feeding a lot with a growth spurt to assist in upping supply. The product would be one hell of a lot easier if it was a lotion and you just rubbed it in and then wet wiped your breast before feeding. Victoria Hannant – Aurelia 5 Months

This was smaller than I expected, nothing wrong with that I just had it in my mind they would be like baby oils rather than essential oils.  I like the colour used in the branding. I like the concept of using them with warm flannels as this is already such an effective way of soothing sore or engorged breasts. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. I found these easy to apply to warm flannels. With the ‘Ouch’ I felt some improvement but not completely. However my baby has a tongue tie so have additional cause for sore nipples not just the “usual” amount. I’ve never found essential oils to be relaxing for me, that’s not a downfall of the product, just isn’t something I do not respond to.  I did like the aroma of the ’Ouch’ oil. The ‘Ooh!’ oil I did feel slightly less tender when engorged however as my supply has settled I didn’t get to use this one as much. I did like the aroma of this one.  The ‘Aah!’ oil states it helps support milk production and flow. I didn’t notice any difference when using this oil. I did not find this helped relieve anxiety or stress.  However the aroma of this one was my favourite on out of all of them. I do agree these are safe to use while breastfeeding as they are natural.  However with me it was always washed off before feeding. I didn’t use the one for full breasts much, the one for sore nipples I used maybe 10 times since receiving them and the one for supporting supply I used daily for a week to see if there was a difference. In relation to helping with sore nipples I would say after a couple of uses there was an improvement. I did not really notice these having any effect with keeping me calm, stress or anxiety. Although they did offer some relief for sore nipples I wouldn’t say the use of these oils would be the make or break factor if I was struggling to continue my breast feeding journey.  These oils seem good quality oils compared to oils I’ve used before. These are good value as price is on par with the cost of other essential oils on the market. I personally would not buy these as I did not find the benefits as big as I would hope if I was to purchase these. I would not recommend purely based on my experience, however other people may have different experiences with them. They smell lovely and are easy to use. They offer some comfort and relief but not a huge amount hence the middle of the road rating. Overall it was a good experience they are easy to use and smell nice. Rachel Gilliland – Arthur 7 Weeks
