Postpartum mama cloth?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am new to the Mama cloth. I want to use cloth for Postpartum but cant make up my mind. I have one panty liner from Luna Panties and Luna undies. I love them both. I know there are TONS of options out there and Luna products are nice but pricy....
Also the bigger the better for PP 13"-14" long ive seen some 10-11" long pads and that is too small I know already.

What have you ladies used? What did you love?

Keep in mind that I haven't used cloth for postpartum, but I'm shopping for mine too and here are the places that I'll most likely get my stash from. I like each for different reasons so I will probably get a variety.
- http://hyenacart.com/HomesteadEmporium/ Lovely and very comfy pads, lots of different styles and sizes. I'd love to get in on a co-op to make the prices a bit lower though.
- http://hyenacart.com/TreeHugger/ Very pretty pads and I love that the minkee ones don't stain (one less thing to worry about with a new babe in the house, right?). They are a hair more bulky than the HE, at least the liners that I've tried so far.
- http://gemcloth.webs.com/ Very economical pads and I've heard good feedback about this mama. I've got a few liners on the way to check them out before getting any PP pads.

All of these mamas have been good at answering questions via email and I believe all are willing to do custom sizes so you could get a longer pad if they don't offer quite the size you want. Hope that helps!

Infant prefolds. They are cheap and absorb a lot. If you need longer try the next size up. These are the best for the first few days because you will be going through lots of them. Once the bleeding slows down then I switch to my regular pads. I think all of mine were made by momma's out of business now though so no recommendations there.

I made my own, but infant prefolds seem like a really good idea!!!!! Definitely going to try that next time. Thank you fruitfulmomma!

I used Yurt craft for postpartum. They worked great. I still use them as an overnight pad. On the first day of my period, I will also use them, only while at home. They are large enough that you can tell that I am wearing a pad, so I don't wear them out of the house.
