To start off my switching to reusable cloth pads rather than disposable journey I opted to try a night pad first. I thought this would be the best way to trial one without having to wear it out anywhere in case I didn’t get on with it.
Bluegrass organic cotton velour Night pad
I got this pad from the site Honour Your Flow. It costs £11.00.
My first thought on seeing the pad was Wooah that is HUGE and my second thought was I’m going to get far too hot wearing that at night. However once you put the pad in place you will find it is the perfect size and as for the being too hot scenario I wasn’t at all. In fact it felt lovely against my skin much nicer than the horrible plastic feeling from the disposable pads.
To give you an idea of size here’s the pad again next to a 20p piece. Big huh!
- Hand painted top layer in organic cotton velour
- Two inner layers of organic cotton fleece
- A layer of waterproof PUL
- Backed with sky blue polyester fleece.
- The double poppers prevent sideways movement.
- All machine washable up to 60′
Coral Reef organic cotton velour Night pad
I got on really well with this pad, so much so that I bought another one the very next day.
After using it I’d never go back to disposables at night time now. I would 100% recommend this reusable sanitary pad.
Honour Your Flow don’t just do night cloth pads they have a whole range of products to suit your needs including mini pads, regular pads and organic cloth tampons. Definitely worth taking a look at their site to see what they have got.
