Mama Cloth Buying Guide:

Congratulations on the decision to try out, or make the switch to mama cloth! It is a decision that your body and pocketbook will thank you for over time. Our quality, handmade reusable cloth menstrual pads are designed to last you for years to come!

What length should I choose?

MotherMoonPads reusable cloth menstrual pads come in lengths from 6 inches to 14 inches. Most women prefer 8 and 10 inch pads, but this is truly personal preference. The best way to figure out what length of reusable cloth menstrual pad you will need is to measure the disposable pads that you currently own.

When in doubt, it's best to get out a ruler. 6 inches is short, and 14 inches is long to some.

What absorbency should I choose?

MotherMoonPads come in a variety of absorbencies to meet your needs.

Pantyliners are made from just 2 layers of fabric. These are best used for every day discharge, or for on very light days such as spotting.

Normal flow pads have soakers made from Zorb* These are best used for most normal days of your menstrual cycle.

Heavy flow pads have soakers made from one layer of Zorb and one layer of bamboo fleece or cotton french terry. These are best used for most heavy days.

Postpartum pads have soakers made from two layers of Zorb. While these are meant for women to use after they give birth, many women also like to use these if they have really heavy cycles.

MotherMoonPads™ are topped with cotton velour, hand dyed organic bamboo velour, and high quality minky.

How many do I need?

How many you will need will vary from woman to woman. Each woman's flow is different. What I suggest doing is counting (or estimating) the number of disposable pads you go through each day, and add a few to use while you are doing the wash. There is no set rule for how many to buy. Most women go through 4-6 each day though.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to send me an email at mothermoonpads [!at] or convo me

*What is Zorb? Here is Wazoodle's definition:

"Zorb contains only tangled cellulose fibers from bamboo/cotton/viscose and poly micro fiber, the same fibers found in virtually every AIO diaper on the market – nothing else. These non-allergenic fibers are non-allergenic, durable and easy to sanitize We manufacture Zorb in the USA and Canadian in modern facilities that are safe & friendly for workers.

Washing Instructions

Machine wash warm, tumble dry low
Do not use the sanitary cycle on your washing machine
Tumble Dry low or hang to dry
Do not use fabric softener or bleach
If you are concerned with staining, consider rinsing your pads after use prior to putting them in the wetbag, or use a wet pail.
If you have a yeast infection, you will need to sanitize your pads by sunning them to dry or using Bac-out.
If you have any questions at all, please contact me directly
