Re: Everything you need to know about mama cloth

I see many patterns in which the top cotton layer is part of the wing and therfore wraps around and ends up underneath the underwear. Is that okay? I would think it would allow fluid to end up on the outside of the underwear even though there is a waterproof layer. For a heavy bleeder, would this be a problem? I've never used mama cloth, but I am about to make some.

That was a problem for one of my testers so I ended up doing a poly print. But it's not attached to the soaker. If you get the soaker layer the right absorbancy it prob does not create a problem, but if you say underestimate your flow you could end up with it wicking to your pants.

ETA: Check out my link in my siggy and you're free to use the idea for yourself if it concerns you.

I have made some with just flannel top & bottom, with hidden PUL, with more or less no difficulty. But as soon as I try to add a minkee top into the mix, everything goes to pot. So I was thinking that maybe making the two parts of the bottom less slidy might help....

i dont think the pul would stick to the flannel. to keep everything from sliding use the clip snap barrettes (you know the metal ones where you just bend them to open or close) they hold better then pins

Oh, I bet those would work better. I was using large paper clip things (binder clips) that look like this

I have been making and selling cloth pads as part of my business since 2005. I make my pads with the top layer as part of the wing and I don't have complaints about them to date.
