Mama cloth - tell me what you have, what you love and what you hate! *Spam welcome*

I just got some PP and I want to buy a few mama pads, I only use a few pads a month b/c I use a Diva Cup, but I am down to like four disposable pads in the house and I refuse to buy more!

Tell me what you use and where you got it!

Well, I've fallen in love with this stuff, but I haven't actually used it yet. lol My sampler set is beautiful and on it's way! The site is a little odd to navagate but totally worth it, imo.

I've also been drooling over Homestead Emporium at HC.

I just ordered a starter set from GEM cloth last night! Can't wait to get it.

By the way, how do you like the DIVA cup? That is something else I've been wanting to try.

My favorite is Homestead Emporium. I need longer pads and they just work so well for me. I also love the 12 inch Zen Moon pads, All Things Cloth postpartum pads, cowbell boutique(I just have 1 of these and it's one of my favs), blossom pads, and some pantyliners from Tree Hugger that are my favorite. I haven't tried her regular pads, though. The only pads I have found that don't work well for me are pink lemonade. They are absolutely gorgeous but are a bit too narrow for me for some reason and they leak out the sides, no matter what length they are. Oh, and I just got a pad from Heart from Bliss congo and I loved it. It fit great.

I have a bunch of pads in-stock with same day shipping right now. I use Zorb in my pads which is my personal favorite because they stay so soft. I also have some from Homestead Emporium and Cow Belle that I love as well. I really prefer minkee or bamboo velour tops (minkee doesn't stain).

I just ordered my stash and don't have any in hand now (other than the small bags from Tree Hugger and they are great!). But these are the following mamas Ive dealt with and so far they have all been fantastic!!

Tree Hugger (ships insanely fast!!) http://hyenacart.com/TreeHugger/
Talulah Bean http://www.talulahbean.com/
GEM http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...d.php?t=718550
Pink Lemonade (getting these through a coop but have heard great things) http://www.etsy.com/shop/pinklemonadeshop

No experience with the actual products yet but I do look forward to it lol

Thanks guys! I found a super cute three piece at GEM for a really good price, I figure it will be a nice way to test out MC and see if it is really something I can live with.

As for the Diva Cup, I love it. I have had mine for five years and only had one or two leaks in the very start (and I have a HEAVY flow), once I got the hang of it I never had a problem. It has been well worth the cost!
