I’ve always wanted to get into trying cloth menstrual pads. I looked into it from major retailers but YIKES! Have you seen the prices on them? Seeing as I’ve had 6 periods in 5 years (I love being pregnant & nursing), I’ve never bothered with the investment. I have noticed one thing that is very different since I gave birth though. I may not have a period but my daily discharges are much heavier and quickly make my undies look pretty sorry unless I take measures to protect them.
A better pantyliner solution was needed. I recently discovered MotherMoon Pads. Denelle makes all her own pads, including pantyliners. You can get a variety of fabrics, lengths & styles to find what works best for you.
She sent me 3 pantyliners to try:
- 10″ hand dyed cotton velour pantyliner
- 8″ minky pantyliner (with wings)
- 8″ wingless knit topped pantyliner
I was really impressed with several things about MotherMoon Pads. First, they were VERY soft. Second, they were very well made. And third, they were better than I had hoped in many ways.
I thought they would give me wedgies, but they were a better than the disposable kind. They didn’t spin around and on the occasions that they did shift, at least no hair was pulled :). I also thought they might be annoying due to their thickness; they weren’t. I completely forgot they were there. And lastly, I thought they would be hot. I wore the MotherMoon pads during the hottest weeks of summer and I was actually drier!
The only con for me was that I didn’t like the wingless style. I often lost it when I used the ahem…facilities. With little kids I often only have one hand available and you need two hands to properly put it back on. Additionally, I would stick with the normal length. I love long pads but the 10″ is a bit too long, even for me.
You can buy MotherMoon pads at her HyenaCart storefront.
