I finally found a favorite
10 golden stars to New Moon Pads. They are easy, comfy, and even cute. Here is how to use them: you just put the fleece side down which naturally grabs on to your undies, and you snap it underneath. There are no cloth holders or inserts to worry about. If you can wash them mid-cycle you should only need 6 day time ones and 3 night time ones. You can start with the pad a little forward and inch it back a little from time to time until you need a new one. You can also double up on heavy days.

I feel a little sad for women who haven’t rediscovered cloth pads.They’re not only comfortable, they’re easy, healthy, cheap, and environmentally conservative.
Cloth menstrual pads are one of those things I’ve discovered, like home birth and home school, which make me so happy and almost no one else seems to know about, yet they were a part of everyone’s experience for most of history. You won’t be sorry if you order some New Moon Pads. My experience with cloth pads is that they will last for a decade or more. It certainly wouldn’t hurt to try them. If you know of other brands that rock, please let us all know!
