It's time for Mama Cloth

I've reached the point in my pregnancy where I can't go without a pantyliner because if I sneeze, there will be some leakage. I'm so tired of wearing disposable pantyliners though, both for the waste and feeling like I'm wearing a diaper because of the non-natural fibers.

What's your favorite (free) mama cloth pattern for liners, and what fabrics do you use? How do you do the laundry for it? I don't have CDs to throw them in with yet or that would be my easy solution.

For liners I like this one.

There is also a larger version of it.

Re: It's time for Mama Cloth

Thank you thank you! This pattern looks so easy! Is there any special way I should wash mama cloth, or just throw it in with my regular wash (until I have diapers to wash!). I haven't told DH I'm going this route yet because I don't want his resistance. He'll appreciate the reusable and economical aspect of it, but maybe not so much the gross factor. Too bad. He's not the one wearing them and peeing his pants every day. If this works out well for me I'd like to use mama cloth PP, and maybe for my regular cycles down the road.

I bet you'll never look back! I unexpectedly used pp mama cloth after ds's birth. I am allergic to disposable pads (they make me sooo itchy!) And have always used tampons. Well I couldn't take the itch anymore after ds was born and just pinned those funky gerber prefolds I had lying around from first ds into my undies. Even though they were bulky they were soooo much more comfortable that that plastic junk! I just washed them with towels......

I rinse mine out in the bathroom sink, then toss them in with my towels or regular laundry. BUT- I generally wash each person's clothing separately. Just one of my quirks. I don't like washing my husband's socks with anything that could touch my girly bits

Well, I'm loving my mama cloth now. But I did discover how much I hate sewing a curved line. Lol. That pattern is amazingly simple. Thank you! Now moving on to PP mama cloth.
