Ok, I bought one of your overnight/postpartem pads and I love it!!!!! I wore it last night, knowing that the first day of my cycle is not too heavy BUT the night of, it kicks it up and I bleed like a severed artery. I was so glad I was wearing your pad! I still got a couple of marks on my underwear... I guess that show how bad I bleed... lol but if I wasn't wearing your pad, it would have been a LOT worse. Oh and the marks were NOT from leakage... gotta put that. I had no leaks..... I must have had the pad up a little too far and not back far enough. The marks were from it going to the back and eventually it ran out of pad ;) Hope thats not TMI. Just wanted to testify to the quality and great functionality of these pads :)

Oh yay! I've been waiting for a review on the overnights! Thanks for your feedback. :D I know how the regulars and petites work, my flow isn't heavy enough for the overnights though. So happy they work for you! Were they comfy?

well I was asleep ;) But thinking about how fluffy and not very fun to wear the paper overnights are, yes, this one was WAY MORE comfy than the others. I put it on and felt like "eh this is like a diaper, oh well" Just because of the extra large size and everything... but man, it sure saved my sheets and undies lol And I'm sure my husband and son are thankful because they could have woken up drenched lol That's gross but its true :)

Oh and I also have to say.... I really like cloth pads for a certain reason. I was unsure how to say it at first... but I think I figured it out... Yes it shortens my cycle and that's AMAZING. Reason enough for me lol But also, I have a pet peeve with paper pads that doesn't happen with cloth. When you use a paper pad, the blood saturates the pad and eventually the pad will not soak up any more fluid in that area.... so that area becomes "dead" and unusable. This pisses me off because I hate throwing away barely used pads. You know, its red in a couple spots and the rest is white. But I have this thing, I can't rotate pads the way I want because my butt touches some part of it and it seems gross and unsanitary to move the pad so that my vagina is touching the part that touched my butt. But I would move it to fully use my pad. Well, I don't have to do that with cloth!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The cloth is so fluid friendly that if it finds an area that it can't soak up in, it moves until it finds a spot that it can be soaked in. A lot of my cloth pads, I end up changing when they have lots of red all over. Not in one certain spot. And that makes me happy. It might not bother other people, what I talked about, but it sure annoyed me. I love cloth pads ;)

Oh I know what you mean! I bled daily for about 3 years straight, so I felt bad wasting a disposable pad, because there wasn't much on it, but it started leaking. The other awesome thing about cloth is, the more you use and wash them, the better they absorb! Just like cloth diapers. :wink: I wash the pads twice before I put the snaps on, before sending out.

This is a little sad but I'll try to keep emotions out of it. I believe I'm currently having an early miscarriage/ chemical pregnancy..... And the cloth pads are amazing in this instance. I'm going through a few because its heavy, even on the 3rd day of it, but no leaks and I'm comfortable.
