I don't know why I never thought of it before...I mean, I use cloth diapers, and these are basically the same idea...just for mama's instead. I'm talking about cloth pads. I sure wish I'd have discovered these YEARS ago!! They are incredible. Honestly. And not gross at all! Effie the Pixie sent out a few cloth pads to try out - a 10" Micro Fleece topped pad, an 8.5" bamboo velour topped pad, and a few 7" flannel topped panty liners. I loved every one of them. They are 100% for sure the most comfortable and best fitting pads that I have ever used. I love cloth! No wonder babies/kids like cloth diapers better than disposables! :) Oh yeah, and like I said - they weren't gross at all. In fact, I had WAY less leaking issues with these cloth pads, and they were very easy to take care of...basically just rinse them out a bit and throw them in wth your laundry. The cloth pads I received from Effie the Pixie were VERY absorbant as well. I used FAR less of them than I would've normally used if I had disposable pads. Plus, her designs are wonderful. They pads fit extrememly well, and even look pretty! ;) So, my take on my first try with cloth mama pads? LOVE IT!! They save money, save the environment, are WAY more comfortable, and let's just say that I'd recommend them to any mama and would say that cloth pads are definitely worth the investment!
