Those are kind of interesting – I’ve actually never heard of such a thing before.

They definitely look way more comfortable than regular pads.  I’m a tampon girl myself but a couple of these might be nice for those really heavy days were you still get some leakage or for right at the end when it is really light.

I’ve never heard of these, but have you ever seen this?  A couple of my hippy mom friends swear by it!

I haven’t heard of these before. I might consider trying it if I was also doing cloth diapers.  I don’t do laundry that often, I would think I would have to do laundry more often if I did use these.  I will have to try to remember looking into this when I have kids.

I do use the diva cup and I do swear by it.

Hmmm, now that I’m thinking about, maybe I should give these a try.

They have really cute designs, though.

 A few of my friends use cloth pads, not that brand though. They all love them. I’m still on the fence about them, but in theory I like them. It’s just the “yuck-factor” that I can’t get over.

I’m leaning towards the Diva Cup though. It just sounds so easy and comfortable.

That’s really interesting. I think it’s an interesting idea but I don’t think I’d use them, I prefer tampons. Because of the issues that you have with regular ones though you should give them a try!

i don’t really like any sort of pad. makes me feel yucky=/ i tried the instead cup years ago, and wasn’t a big fan. i’d try the diva cup though. when i’m not on birth control, i hardly every get a period on my own, and on birth control they’re not very heavy, so i guess i might not be the best person to give an opinion. i use always long liners at the beginning/end when i don’t need a tampon, i like the top layer on them. i feel like it keeps a barrier between me and any yuck=) my only concern with the cloth ones would be what you do when you’re away from home??

I use them! I have an IUD so I don’t really need them anymore, but I loveddd them! I really don’t think it was gross at all, I mean its just blood…big whoop. I had a moderate flow and could wear one all day. I also bought thin ones for pantyliners for my light days. I could go a whole day just wearing one. I did have a wet bag too just in case. When it was time to switch, I would just rinse it out and then put it in a little pot I kept in the bathroom until I did laundry. I just kept the pot full of cold water with a spoonful of oxyclean. You have to dump and refill the water everyday or it does get pretty nasty. I bought a cute little pot like the one below (just tell your Fiance not to look!!) and then I got most of my pads from here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/shabbychichippie  I would recommend getting darker colored ones since they tend to hide the stains better.
