I just spent 20+ minutes looking through old threads and links here on MDC.  I used to get the best pads ever from Karen's cloth.  AIO, snaps, very absorbant, waterproof back, etc.  I still use them many years later. 

 

But I need a lot of new ones (especially post partum pads), and that store doesn't exist anymore. :(  Anyone know where to find mama pads like the ones I'm describing?  Affordable would be a great bonus too. :)

 

Thanks

This shop on etsy has some nice pads, plus soap bits for cloth wipes and washable nursing pads: http://www.etsy.com/shop/WeeEssentials?ref=si_shop

Thank you!  Those are almost exactly like what I was talking about.  They're even cuter than my old ones.  And very affordable too. :)

The funny thing is, I just found that shop yesterday and I was thinking I should get some post-partum pads for when #2 arrives. I don't know much about mama cloth as I've never used it before, but I remember noting the snaps and waterproof backs. Then I just happened to see your post today!

I think most of the mama cloth out there is AIO with snaps, isn't it?  Here is the shop most of my postpartum stash came from, it worked very well for me.  She has two pages so I'll link them both, very affordable and if you really want to save money you can get one of her postpartum (or other sizes) "grab bag" which you won't get to choose exactly how they will look but they're cheaper.

I got a couple of the "deluxe started packs" plus some additional PP/overnight pads and extra liners.  The liners were awesome for pregnancy discharge too.

Not that I have found.  When searching for mama cloth I generally find the two piece pads with no wings (like glad rags).  Finding both AIO and snaps has been really difficult for me.  Thank you so much for the links though.  Those are some cute post partum pads for some great prices.

Ahh, I see, they are all I've used so maybe that's why I though that.  Well here are a couple more that I've tried and liked, these are more pricey though:

late to the party, but I wanted to add what I use

 

LisaJaney at TLC pads has custom hand-sewn me a bunch of different pads over the years - from the 2 part leopard and zebra-print pads for overnight/keeper backup nearly 10 years ago, up to the post-partum pads she JUST made me in 3 different styles - 2 part (with wing/snaps), AIO (with wing/snaps), and belted.  

I can't wait to have the baby so I can use them! (lol!)

 

The 2 part and AIO are described/shown on her website: http://tlc-pads.com/products.htm

the belted pads were a special order/custom item, but she's TOTALLY cool like that!

 

one warning: she is a busy mama, so make sure you plan ahead on your order!

These are the cheapest I could find. 5 for $36.99 for overnight or $31.99 for regular. They have 2 layers or terry, 4 layers of flannel and a flannel backed layer of PUL on the bottom.

I have tried a variety of etsy pads and they were all good. My all-time favorite is Party In My Pants, not on etsy, aka PIMPs

Go to Ebay and put in the search box "menstrual pads".  It will take you to tons of people selling the pads they make.  There is a company on Ebay called Little Bee Creations (I think that's the name of them) that makes AIO mama pads with snaps.  They are absolutely wonderful.  They come in 3 sizes and don't leak, from my experience.  She also sells them for a inexpensive price and combines shipping.  Hope this helps!

My vote is for GEM cloth as a pp mentioned! She does excellent custom work. I got everything i needed for postpartum from her and she was very helpful in customizing the package so I could afford it. I went with the topadz and it was all I used postpartum (well I stuffed with a prefold the first day).

This site has some neat looking pp pads w/ice packs... I haven't tried them, but I want to. http://hyenacart.com/stores/PamperedMama/

 

Thanks for the other links! I just got into MC, and then didn't get my period anymore..hehe! Can someone tell me how about their pp stash. What's a good number for washing every couple of days (both for pp and for periods later on)? I was in the process of searching the threads when I found this one, so I will keep looking!

So prior to my dd I used a keeper cup and had six pantyliners. So I too decided to use cloth PP. I got the twopadz from GEM cloth http://gemcloth.webs.com/ and they rocked. I ordered two extra large/postpartum pads (15in) with three inserts a piece, two heavy/overnight (12in) with three inserts each. and four regular/day (10 in) with three inserts a piece. So I guess that totals out to be 24 pads. The first day I just used prefolds! Then the next two days I used all six of the pp pads each day then gradually switched to the overnight then the regular ones. I washed the first three days every day then I washed every other day because that's when I was doing diapers anyways.

Instead of using ice packs I made a tea from pamperedmama that had comfry and ursa ursa (i think) and would soak a pad in it and use it hot for the first couple of days. Then I would freeze the pad with the tea on it and use that for two days, and didn't find a need for it after that. Also you can get a icepack and put it between the layers of the pad if you go with the twopads style of mamacloth.

Wow, I can't believe I just wrote that much about this! Cheers

I use the treehugger ones mentioned above by Ola. I absolutely love them. Never had leak problems, I have the minkee ones, so they don't stain, and they're very comfortable, and not bulky. She's good at customizing too. http://www.facebook.com/TreeHuggerCloth
