I use it regularly and love it. Switched due to sensitivities to disposables that were getting worse over time. The Silver Liner is my absolute favorite, with Windpro fleece backing. It have used several different brands and materials. I have been considering trying Yurtcraft on etsy as they look similar to the shape I like. I am planning on adding a few postpartum and heavy to my stash for after baby.

DDC - if you need some, it's possible a lot of the WAHMs will be going out of business at the end of the year, so you may want to get some ASAP. Check out the FDA threads.

Re: mama cloth

Pampered Mama does Postpartum pads with ice packs in them for soothing.

My favorite full coverage pads are from Hello Aunt Flow. Her 15" pads are trim yet make me feel SO secure. I've never had leaks through the backing though it's not polar fleece or PUL.

I've had my eye on Neo Peasant Revolution's postpartum set, pretty sure they'll do customs.

For heavy daytime I like the 10" Trojacek Farms with bamboo velour.

If money were no object I'd get an enormous pile of Homestead Emporium.

Too many options? GAH! I LOVE MAMA CLOTH!!!!

Re: mama cloth

After my last baby, I started using cloth. I bought 18 premie sized prefolds and just trifold them. Someday, when I have a little more funds, I will probably upgrade to real mama cloth, but for now, the prefolds have worked well. I used them post baby and also after my period started up again.

I love pink lemonade's cloth! I switched over 3 or 4 years ago and it is still going strong.

Re: mama cloth

I use cloth liners as backup for a cup.

Re: mama cloth

I can't remember what the name of the ones I have are. I think I got them from Etsy or Hyenia cart. All of them are Organic Bamboo Velour (or "OBV" as they are usually titled for short) I actually get the postpartum size so I can wear them overnight on heavy days. They don't feel as bulky as some of the heavier disposable pads do. Then some regular size ones for day time.

I highly recommend getting ones with a OBV top though. They are so comfortable and breathable. You'll never want to wear a plastic & paper pad again after trying these!

Re: mama cloth

Thanks for all the input ladies! I'll check out all the brands, and definitely look into the OBV, we used some bamboo overnight fitteds with DD as I recall, and I was impressed at how thin and absorbent they were.

I have been using a diva cup for a couple years too, and was thinking some cloth liners might be nice. Plus a recent run in with a cold bug and the resulting emergency underwear changes were pretty motivational.
