I am starting to sew a stash of postpartum cloth pads. I am using an envelope/pocket design so that I can change the absorbancy. I have preemie prefolds that fit in well. I am following these directions but made a longer patter that fits my underwear. http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/sanitarypads.htm
1. Do I need to add a waterproof layer? If so, what is better, felted wool or PUL, I have both?
2. Is 12 a good number?
i just got 'into' making my own reusable menstrual pads ....(missed the boat for my own postpartum experience!) n I always think a layer of PUL is a good idea. I was actually shocked to hear that some pads are made without it. I think in the first 48 hours you would really need a waterproof layer -possibly not so much after that, also you will be up constantly and can change pads more often.
Sorry im not much help!
Happy at Home Mama to DD 4/95 DS 4/98 and DS#2 8/10
