It seems only natural to those choosing cloth nappies to look at cloth menstrual wear too, since disposable pads and tampons create a significant volume of waste when viewed across a woman's fertile years. Many do not like what we hear about the content of disposable pads and there are concerns over the use of tampons too. In addition, disposable pads can be stiff and uncomfortable, and can cause problems with reactions and rashes too - hands up those who got severe 'nappy rash' with post partum loss? I did, I used disposable maternity ones in hospital after the birth of my daughter - couldn't wait to get home to my homemade cloth pads! We usually choose cotton underwear and clothing - why not for our delicate bits too.
We now stock the redesigned Lunapads range, both the Pads
and the slimmer Pantyliners
, in varying sizes to suit your flow..Pads
