She makes cloth pads fit for everyone! What absorbency would you like your pad to be? She makes Light, Regular & Heavy. What sizes/length of pad? She offers 8″, 10″, 12″, 14″… the 12 & 14″ are mainly used for postpartum or EXTREMELY heavy flows. Not sure what size you need… Veronica’s hint is to measure the length of a disposable pad you use now it will give you a good idea of what you will like!
- Average life of a cloth pad is 6-7 years.
- Chemical FREE!
- Saves you money!
- Environmentally friendly!
Because I am new to cloth mama pads, I did have to ask Veronica how to wear the pads. I mean…the fabric is so pretty…is that the side that touches my body? She quickly responded with a quote from her post “How to use/How they feel: Simply wrap around your panties and snap underneath. The fleece (fuzzy) side goes next to your panties & the cotton or flannel side goes next to your skin. These are soft & much more breathable than disposables, no more sweaty feel or chafing!“ GOT IT! Okay…they are easy to use! Simply attach and go…just like a disposable pad. The only difference is that these don’t stick to your undies. I was going to take a photo…but thought that would be a little too personal…I’m not shy, just not crazy enough to take a photo of a very personal time of the month. Because these don’t stick to the undies, I was afraid they might move around too much…but they stayed put and I didn’t have any accidents! (Kind of feel like my kids saying yeah for me for no accidents!)
My next question for Veronica was how to clean/sanitize the pads??? “Simple Laundering Instructions/Sanitizing: You can soak your pads, but not necessary! Simply throw them in your laundry & wash on cold cycle (hot water will set in any stains, this is why I suggest cold). You can use your normal laundry soap brand, no special soap needed. Throw in the drier (heat can go up as high as 160 degrees before shrinkage will occur) and you are done. Simply launder and these will be sanitized & ready for wear.” Since I do cloth diaper with Kira, I just tossed them in with her diapers. I do have to admit that my husband thought it was gross to see my cloth pads hanging next to the diapers on the drying rack…but GET OVER IT!
These pads are well made…and will last forever (okay…6-7 years). I will continue to use the mama cloth pads…and probably buy some more…but I can’t lie I will still use my disposable pads too. If you are looking for mama cloth pads, then I would highly recommend buying them from Moms Crafts 4 U!
