Making the switch to reusable menstrual products!

You've made the switch to cloth diapers, so why not make the switch to a reusable product for yourself? While it may sound intimidating (and maybe a little gross), I promise once you make the switch, you'll be so thankful!

Reusable Menstrual Pads












These are sometimes referred to as "mama cloth". These cloth pads come in a variety of sizes and absorbency, as well as organic materials or synthetic for a stay dry feel. You can store your cloth in a small wet bag and just wash after each use.

Menstrual Cups


If you are already comfortable with using tampons, you should give the menstrual cup a try! These cups are made from medical grade silicone and will hold up to 12 hours of your flow before needing to be emptied! When properly using a cup, you may find you even forget you are on your period! Is there anything better than that?

By making the switch to one or both of these reusable products, you'll be avoiding harmful and harsh chemicals and will likely notice a difference in how you feel about your period!

I love my cloth pads and Diva Cup :)

I have used cloth pads for 3 years now and recently tried the Diva & Skoon cup...best products ever! So glad that I decided to try them!

My body yelled at me to make the switch a few years back, so I made my own cloth pads... then I broke down and bought a cup. Never going back to pads! I love my cup and would love to scream it those "happy period" people. I have three daughters who will know all the options before letting them decide what is right for them.
