Reusable Menstrual Pads
If anybody is interested..Here's a guide.
They really do, don't they? I know you understand this Christina because we have talked about it, but not being able to wear tampons limits your options. And pads are uncomfortable too, in my opinion. They are just the lesser of two evils.
My sister switched to Diva cup instead of tampons and loves it.
I was given some cloth post-partum pads and absolutely loved them. When I get my period back, I will probably be investing in a stash of mama cloth!
Ah.. great link.. I have never bit the bullet on these!
I found a pattern on Hillbilly Housewife and made my own light days. But having a serger and the right kind of fleece helps with absorbency so when I get the disposables gone in the closet (who knows when that will be) I plan on buying a stash..Even if it's just a few to see how they are made then attempt my own. the right kind of fleece and flannel is the key, I don't care what they look like as long as they do the job. Personally I don't think I would mind a diva cup, but thanks to a bartholyn cyst, I can't use tampons anymore so I'm guessing a diva cup would be the same. There's many ladies on Etsy who sell some so you could try it out by just getting a few to start with.
