Re: Mama Cloth and Cup help....

I have had the diva cup for a number of years... the first 6 cycles were rocky... but it really does get better. That being said it still leaks. I am planning on buying a different brand since the cup is better than any other option.
I looked at lots and lots of mama cloth and was just so overwhelmed. On a whim I got some China cheap PUL pads on Amazon.... well now I know that it wasn't a good choice. And having used some I'm more aware of preferences. So I would recommend buying just a few and seeing how you like them. Then getting more or trying something else.

Re: Mama Cloth and Cup help....

I've been using cups for close to 25 years. I bought a Keeper as a teenager, that lasted many years until I accidentally put it through the washing machine and killed it. After babies I got a Diva that I'm still using, have had it probably about 8 years now. They work about the same.

They pretty much always leak for me on heavy days even with frequent emptying, so I use a cloth pad as backup for about 3 days per month. It's not a lot of blood, the cloth pad is just to keep my underwear from staining, so I only change them in the morning and evening, no need to carry a bag around with me. I throw the used pads in with the cloth diapers and wash them all with OxyClean.

My youngest just recently potty trained so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with 5-6 cloth pads though, it's not enough to run the washer and I don't have anything else I use OxyClean on.
