|Adorable Gift Bag|
Making the choice:I then had a lengthy discussion with Robyn of It's a Girl Thing Period by Posh Pads. Robyn is just the sweetest person and she urged me to give them a try. In fact, she very generously sent me an entire stash so I could take part in the It's a Girl Thing Cloth Challenge to give their mama cloth a try for my next cycle. When I got the mail a few short days later I was shocked! I received an entire supply of mama cloth in several different pattern and sizes in an adorable gift box. The first thing I did was lay them all out on the counter and tell my husband how cute they all were. (Seeing any resemblance to a cloth diaper addiction here?) I promptly prepped all my goodies by washing them in Eco Sprout detergent and laid them out to dry.

The Fit:I had never been so excited to get my period before, lol :) So once the day came I just had to decide which pad to use. My first couple of days are the heaviest, so I really appreciated that some of the pads had a double heart sewn on them to indicate they were for a heavier flow. I have to admit, I did have some trouble and leaking in the beginning. I found that the pads moved around a lot, and I always seemed to leak at the top and the sides. After several mishaps, I decided I had to adjust the pad to lay more towards the front on me, because of this I really loved the extra long pad that was sent with my trial. I also discovered that tighter underwear made a big difference in the pad moving around. Once I figured this out, the rest of my days went really well. I especially liked the mini's. I found these were great for that last day - you know, the just when you thought you were finished type of day. I found the pads to be very soft and super comfortable - much more comfortable than a disposable maxi pad!

Overall:Mama cloth is really easy to use. I made sure to use them for two full cycles before writing the review. It definitely took some getting used to, especially for a previous Tampon user, but overall I really liked it. Because of my personal flow, during my second month of using mama cloth, I used a tampon for the first day, with a reusable pad for my back up (which I needed). After that first heavy day, I switched to all cloth and it worked great. I was very surprised at how much the pads absorbed and found that for my lighter days, one pad would last me a long time. They are super soft and really very comfortable to wear. If you already cloth diaper, you will find that this is very similar and just a small jump from doing what you already are.
