Re: FloCatcher reusable cloth tampons i made today!:)

Those look great! And such a great idea! They look like they would be MUCH more comfortable than a tampon, especially if you were a little "off" on the insertion - they would just bend with your body, wouldn't they?

Oh, I'm definitely going to have to make up some of these!

If you use a sponge, then wet it and then squeeze out the moisture before insertion. That would be much more comfortable than putting it in totally dry!

Re: FloCatcher reusable cloth tampons i made today!:)

I have a stash of cloth tampons from this mama and have to say I loved them ( right now ) I started out using mama cloth but I really am a thong and tampon girl and while thong liners are fine, there really is no way to use a heavy thong pad. I decided to try these out and mine are solid cotton and OBV (or OCV, I can't remember which ) The first time putting it in was a bit odd, I had to re-roll to get it tight enough, (TMI warning) but I kind of just put the tip in for a minute and let it get a little wet then was able to put the rest in easily. I was surprised that they don't bunch as they go in and they are very comfy. I never had a leak problem and really didn't feel *dryed out* like I have with disposable tampons, because I guess these don't suck up every last drop of moisture, but still absorb the flow. Its kind of hard to explain. I never had an experience with using them on light days, as those days I just used a thong liner.

I just wanted to offer my personal experience with them...I was a bit skeptical at first but I figured it was worth a try and I really like them for heavy and medium days.

Thanks!
