One of the unintentional side effects of cloth diapering your baby is that you are suddenly aware of the yucky chemicals inside of all disposable hygiene. Tampons and pads are not immune to those ingredients and now you are wondering how to avoid the same things! For some a menstrual cup is a good plan but not everyone is comfortable with using them. For those moms reusable mama cloth (reusable menstrual pads, you don’t HAVE to be a mom to use them!) can be the answer.
You may be wondering how all this works… like cloth diapers, you will need to wash your mama cloth items. Pink Lemonade conveniently sells reusable zippered wet bags from Planet Wise to store your dirties in between wash days and Femme Rock, a detergent designed for washing mama cloth. You can carry a small dual zippered bag to hold clean and dirty pads for traveling too.
Pink Lemonade specializes in luxury mama cloth. The luxury comes from their soft fabrics and boutique designs. They have created a large variety of menstrual pads with sizes that will work for teens all the way up to their larger and more absorbent post partum pads. I am asked often about safe options for after childbirth since menstrual cups are not an option so I love that they have created post-partum mama cloth. If you are traditionally a menstrual cup user but still have light leakage on heavy days or just like that protected feeling they offer liners too. Fabric choices like minky, bamboo velour, and fleece are very familiar to cloth diapering moms.
Eventually cloth diapering comes to an end, perhaps a mama cloth stash is your next addiction? Like cloth diapers you can find them in designer prints and really amazing tie-dyes in vibrant hues. I can help get you started!
