Reusable pads not only good for the earth; they are good for our health as well. No chemicals, bleaching, irritating paper burn, funky smell or embarrassing crinkly noises! Make the best of your monthly visit with a comfortable, discreet and toxin-free liner.
And, reusable pads are useful for more than Aunt Flo! Use them for the postpartum time after birth and incontinence as well.
Look, I know, a lot of people are probably reading this right now and thinking of some gross, horrible things. Maybe it takes a cloth diapering journey to be open to this idea. I was already using cloth for my babies, so the idea of using cloth on MY nethers sounded great. And it IS. I've been using cloth for me for about two years now and cannot rave enough about it! I've thrown out all decency of conversation hahaha.
Really, I wish all women would give it a chance. (And if liners/pads are not your thing, you can always consider tampon alternatives such as the Diva Cup or Seasponges.) At any rate, all of the strange assurances are true! Using cloth pads, I have experienced lighter flow, less cramping, no rashes, no burning, no infections and no odd scents. And NO yucky adhesive ruining my nice panties! I toss them in the cloth diaper load and rinse/wash with cloth diaper-safe detergent. No fuss.
So I was delighted to be given an opportunity to review a cloth pad sample set handmade by Sarah Beth Artel, owner of Baby Bleiu and Mama, Too. (Get it? Cloth for babies and women.)
I've tried a few WAHM versions, Treehugger, Party in My Pants, Luna Pads, etc. And like I said, I've been using cloth for about 2 years now, in various situations ranging from regular cycles, to pregnancy incontinence (sad face haha) to the postpartum lochia.
So, when I tried out this sample pack, I was quite the discerning cloth user. I knew what could make a pad uncomfortable or annoying, such as not being shaped correctly or having too much bulk.
|Here is the fun sample pack I received in the mail!|
That's when I was really, truly excited to find out that Sarah's pads rock my undies! I even made a status about moon walking. Ha, get it?
Things I loved:
- They had two snaps on the wings to adjust the sizing to fit all of your unmentionables.
- They had great absorbency without being squishy or bulky.
- They were smooth and rounded, a good shape to remain discreet even in my jogging clothes.
|Smooth, discreet, absorbent...and free of toxic chemicals and stinks!|
(And the cute print was definitely an added plus. Hey, I'll take anything positive about monthly menstrual cycles!)
|Really, the whimsy adds a lot!|
