Re: Tips for using mama cloth?

I use a diva cup with Homestead Emporium pads. I love her pads, they are awesome! If you are getting shifting, try snugger undies. I have lost a bit of weight since I stopped nursing in August and my old undies (ie, the bigger ones) are useless if I'm using MC, my newer better fitting undies work like magic.
And about the cups, if you still have one, I've heard that you can turn them inside out to make them shorter if that is the problem. I love mine...never leaks, and super comfy.

Good point! All of my underwear are stretched out from the weight I gained while pregnant and now are baggy from weight loss.

Thanks for all the thoughts everyone! I think I'm going to look into some of these brands and order the heavy flow options.

It is hard to transition from tampons to pads! Make sure you are wearing snug-fitting undies and a heavy enough (and long enough) pad, and that you are changing often enough. That will clear up most problems.

What brands/sizes of cups have you tried and when did you try them? Sometimes it is hard to get the hang of cups but I always tell people to stick with it because you'll get it sooner or later and will most likely love them! That's what happened with me. My favorite brands are Lunette, LadyCup, and Meluna, and definitely get the size for after giving birth.

I think that you need to make sure that you are getting a good fit. Not using a pad bigger than you need.

I am a newer cloth pad maker....older WAHM though, just rebranding.

Shifting pads make me wonder if you maybe need new underwear. Snug/properly fitting underwear is one of the main factors for pads fitting properly and not shifting.

ETA: Sorry I only read the first post when responding, I see others suggested it
