Menstrual Pads - Knickernappies Stackable Pads ()
A unique menstrual pad system...two pads snap together on the shell...use one for light days, the other for regular days, and both together for heavy days. No need to have several sizes of shells! Soft velour and waterproof fleece. Now available in a hemp option!
So I hesitantly made the switch to mommy cloth because after having my first child, the usual feminine products were uncomfortable. I found this pad at a local retailer (Go Baby Go) and I could not be more pleased. The velour top is incredible! and I absolutely love the stackable option.
Just a tip to prevent staining- your own saliva will get rid of the stain. I know it sounds totally weird, but try it. You will see the blood disappear right before your eyes. I also rinsed in cold and if I get a stain, I plan on sunning, just like my baby's cloth diapers.
You will not regret getting this product. I purchased the microfiber, only because hemp was not available, but it is great!
Thank you for making such comfy mama cloth! I had my fourth child just 2 weeks ago and they have made postpartum healing so much better!
Love the Soft Pads
I just love the soft pads making me feel so comfy wearing it during the menstrual cycle. The absorbency is good as well lasting me for 4 hours during the heavy flow.
I was skeptical about the idea of reusable pads, mostly because I was afraid they would leak. I spent a lot of time researching and choosing, and gave knickernappies a try. I''ve been using the pads for about 6 months now and I only go back to disposable pads when I run out of fresh reusables, so now I am purchasing a couple extra sets to completely forget about disposables - now in hemp.
Something you need to consider: these are not going to stay stain-free, alas. They are not going to look discreet enough for you to want anyone else to ever see them. So, plan your strategy: where do you plan to soak it, where do you launder it so that your husband or kids or mother-in-law don''t come across, you know what I mean. And goes without saying, you cannot just dump a used pad in your laundry load with your clothes, you have to soak them first. They are more environmentally-friendly than disposables, without a doubt, but you will spend lots of water laundering them every month, so the ecology should not be your number 1 reason to get these. Because they take time to get washed and dry, you may need a set of 4 or so for your special time of the month.
Taking the mentioned concerns into considerations, the advantages are: the fleece surface feels sooo comfortable; the shell is absolutely leak-proof, this is some modern nano- mega- science technology fabric that does not soak; disposable pads have a tendency to irritate my skin - knickernappies feel pretty much like another pair of panties, very natural. In the bottomline, I love them and am very happy that I ventured to try them out.
