I have seen a few brands of modern mama cloth pads for that time of the month and was after true testimonies from different brands, wanting to know cost, absorbency/leakage, if there are any to steer away from, comfort, washing powder recommendations etc. Thanks

  • I’ve never heard of this so thanks for asking the question, I’m keep to follow the answers given

  • Fancy bringing these back! My mum and mother in law used to talk about cloth menstrual pads that required a strap to hold in place. Think I prefer the disposable ones

  • I remember my mum telling me about these from when she was younger but she came from a poor family so had to share with her sisters.

  • They are from the olden days when they didn’t have the adhesive strips. I’ve never seen them but it is pointless using them when you have convenience now .

  • Oh my god! Really?! I thought these went out when my mum was having periods! I gave never seen them on the shelves, anywhere, in any shop in Tasmania. I think it’s a bit gross actually, re usable period pads, don’t think I’ld buy them if I did see them

  • Good luck if you do use them. After hearing the experience of older generations that had to wash them and maintain them – I am thankful for disposable sanitary napkins!

  • Would never had thought off using them, thanks for giving the idea.

  • Omg I didn’t even know you could use cloth pads. When I use the normal pads I get iratation and its so annoying.

  • Not to sure but I hope other mums can help you with your question.

  • i have never used cloth before, but have always been a fan of libra disposible

  • I didn’t think they even got used anymore, goodluck in finding the right one

  • I admit that I had no idea that cloth pads were still in use. Not what I would choose to use them, but better for the environment, and possibly healthier for your body. It would remind me too much of washing out cloth nappies.

  • I am not sure, I am a fan of disposable so there is nothing around the home that is dirty

  • there are some good comments here

  • did you find anything :)
