I have found the most amazing product! You may not all know, but I do the cloth diaper thing...
One day I got to thinking how it isn't fair that all these babies get amazingly soft cloth on their bums and I have to use crunchy, stiff, yucky pads one week out of the month! Bleh!!
I started to look around on etsy for an alternative. I knew there were cloth pads out there, and heck if I had the time . . . I have the materials and I could make my own.... BUT.... no time to sew for myself!
In my looking though I was pretty picky. With my Cloth Diaper business I have a knowledge of fabrics and what works and what doesn't. I was looking for something with bamboo or hemp as an absorbent layer. I also wanted, no REQUIRED, a velour inner layer! That stuff is so super soft, and it is a great wicking fabric too.
In all my searching I only found one etsy shop that had everything I wanted in a pad.
Jami ROCKS! I love that she has fun prints too!
I follow Randumosity on FB now too to keep up with all the new stuff and current specials!
I bought my first set, and I jumped in with both feet. I bought a big ol' set. We don't do anything small around here! LOL!
Don't those look so soft? Well let me be the first to tell you THEY are! I LOVE them! Now that I have tried them... I doubt I will use anything else!
They are very absorbent even for my heavy days.
Jami offers pads with either velour or a soft flannel top.
The backs are flannel which is perfect for non-slippage (is that a word?)
Doesn't that velour look simply delicious? I love that it is turned and top stitched too. Nothing to poke or scratch. The snaps are set with a professional snap press and are through 2 layers of fabric for durability. I love resin snaps... they are my snap of choice.
Plus look at the super cute fabric choices. She has quite the selection. They are all fun and spunky... which I think helps get me though a little more cheerfully! The snaps all coordinate and the whole little thing is simply cute. They also fold up all nice so that if you pull this out of your purse no one will have any idea what it is.
I must add in here that my pre-teen has recently been visited by "aunt-flow". I actually had bought my first set of pads right before. I told her I would not MAKE her use the cloth pads if she didn't feel comfortable with it. She looked at me like I was crazy and was all like, "well why wouldn't I. . . they are softer and cuter!" Her only concern was what she would do with them during school. So we purchased a couple wet bags and showed her how to use them.
Did I mention that Randumosity makes fun little wetbags? Do you know what a wetbag is? They are bags with a waterproof layer in them that you can store your clean OR used pads in. Until you get home to wash them.
They are the perfect size to slip right into your purse for on the go!
Care of is easy-peasy! I have a cute little bucket thingy, and I fill it with cold water. Then I just put the used pads in until I am ready to wash a load of laundry. Wash in washing machine and then dry! Pretty easy huh?
If you feel my instructions are kinda vague... don't worry
Randumosity sends a card with care of instructions with each purchase.
Aside from them feeling a TON nicer...
They also save a TON of money!
And if you want to think a little bit "green". . .
think of all the trash you will NOT be making!
She also makes ouchie pads filled with flaxseed, reusable nursing pads for new mama's and also some flaxseed eye pads.
So I know that you are just dying to give them a try now right? Well you can . . .
