Bah, stupid phone.



Anyway, things are changing for wahm carriers. Some have shut diwn selling in the US becausr they can't afford the current regulations. A lot are worried now because standards are changing (for the good imo) and the testing they'll have to send them through isn't cheap.
It's a lot easier for them to get away with being non-compliant. After this goes into affect punishment can include fines or jail time.

Quoting Moses.:" *jots down pads* I have been wanting to get some cloth liners. And a cup. But I don't want to buy MeLuna's cause they test on animals. But they are the only one that I have seen does co ops :("


Etsy and HC cart are my favorite place to buy pads :wink: Or PIMP pads are pretty nice too, but pricey. Are you gonna have your daughter use cloth when she starts her period? Sorry if that's weird...but I always wonder this since I have a girl :oops:

I bet if I cracked down and devoted some time to learn to use my sewing machine, I could make some unpaper towels that are prettier than what we're using now :lol: I already have snaps and pliers and tooonnnns of fabric.

I've thought about switching to cloth pads, even though I said I never would. But I don't get periods right now.



I have a girl too, and I'll let her use whatever she wants, be it cloth pads or disposable tampons. I think that's a personal choice.

You should :P It saves money and is more comfortable IMO.
I think I'd tell B all the benefits of cloth then let her decide, but I don't think I'd buy disposables for her :P I'm a mean, cheap mommy haha

I'd buy them for DD just because I know how embarrassing it would be to use cloth pads in high school. Where are you supposed to keep the used one? What happens if you have a used pad in your purse and it falls out? I would die.

Oh...true :P I think with school it would be kind of awkward for them, but it can work if they're open to it. But then again I have been considering home school sooooo who knows lol.

I think there would still be issues IMO. Sure, it could work without a problem. But I personally wouldn't do it. I had such a hard time in high school that I was suicidal, I can only imagine the things people would have said if they had found out I used cloth pads.

Seriously. I had a hard time because my best friend was bisexual, so OMG that must mean I'm a lesbian and am going to pounce on the next vagina I see :roll: Once a certain group of girls hates you, it's all downhill from there. I'll be so scared for DD when she hits high school :( Maybe I'll homeschool

Ugh same. Stupid people don't like one thing and end up making everyone dislike you or pick on you.
