Domino Cloth Pads Review

SewFatty: Review on the Amazing Domino Cloth Pads My addiction for cloth pads has grown. I want to try all the cloth pads out there. {he he} Seriously I wish I had done the switch way soon. I believe if you have the right cloth pads, it truly just makes everything so much easier. Karin owner of Domino Pads sent over her Variety Pack of Regular size pads. I fell in love the moment I touched them. They were so soft and the color swatches are just so beautiful. I still couldn’t believe I would actually use these as menstrual pads. I was beyond impressed. Let’s talk Domino Pads Fun Facts.

Absorbency: I used my Domino Pads right after having my son, so as many of you may know your period sometimes (not all the time) is heavy right after having a little one. In my case it was heavy. I used the heavy pad during day and night and it worked amazing, no leaks. The way it conforms to your body is amazing, the materials used I believe helps with that. The pad is very soft even though it is considered heavy, its not bulky, it’s actually quite thin. I used the heavy day pad for about 4-5 hours on one night without getting up and it lasted that long without any leaks. So in my book, that is pretty amazing !! The regular pad was also great, after my flow slowed down my experience with the pads where just as amazing, no leaks, no shifting no problems. The liner is my best friend these days since I do not have a period I use liners and these are just as great. I sometimes forget I have a pad on, that’s how great these are.

Workmanship : Domino pads are unlike any of the pads I have (don’t get me wrong, I love all my other pads) they are just hard to compare to. They are high quality pads in every way. How may you ask? Well the materials used are high quality, they have branding instructions, they are sealed and ready to go. They are the (store bought) kind, if that makes sense.

Style|Fit : The Domino Pad style has a flare in the front and back. The fit of these pads is great the flare of the pad makes it have the extra coverage which helps with nights and naps when our flow tends to rise up (if you know what I mean ?) So to have that extra coverage is awesome, prevents accidents. Also the materials against your skin are soft and not irritant.

My Stats:

25 years old| 160 lbs | 5’5

Heavy after postpartum.

Normally I am heavy first 2-3 days and after that it becomes lighter.

Overall: I love my Domino cloth pads I have these three in my stash and will be adding some more very soon. I am still waiting on my period to come to be able to enjoy these babies again. I am currently breastfeeding my son, so I guess when you breastfeed your period is non-exsistant 🙂 which I am totally okay with, I will have a period for the rest of my life, so I will definitely enjoy these months without it. Domino Pads are definitely on my “To Buy List”. The quality and workmanship of these pads are just flawless. You will not be disappointed. I used the Earth Mama Angel – Mama Balm and New Mama Bottom Spray with my pads and I experienced no build up nor stains on my pads. For future reference, if you need to use these balms for postpartum reason, like in my case episiotomy, the balm or spray will NOT harm your pads. Another feature I love is that they are not at all noticeable, they are comfy and conform to you body. These cloth pads are a little more on the higher priced pads but I believe you do get what you pay for making it worth the price. Domino pad topper fabrics are hand dye which makes a beautiful camouflage pattern for any stains if you you have any. Your package will come sealed with a care instructions. 

Care Instructions : (Recommended by Domino Pads)

Cold rinse before washing may keep stains from setting | wash on medium (105 degrees Fahrenheit/ 40 degrees Celsius) or below | Avoid fabric softeners | Do not use bleach | A detergent with less residue building ingredients will ensure maximum absorbency | Dry on low

You can purchase some of your own Domino Pads through their Website or on Amazon

Happy Little Llama – Nursing Pads Review

SewFatty: Happy Little Llama Reusable Nursing Pads Review.

As many of you may know I plan on breastfeeding my little Edward. I’ve learned from support groups I’m in that nursing pads are a MUST HAVE while breastfeeding. So can you say let the nursing pad stash begin 🙂

Holly the WAHM behind Happy Little Llama makes these super squishy nursing pads. They come in this cute mesh baggie with a care card attached.

Why I like Happy Little Llama Nursing Pads :  SewFatty: Happy Little Llama Reusable Nursing Pads Review.

  • 2 layers of organic bamboo fleece, topped with organic bamboo velour. — I love natural fibers
  • Super soft against your skin — who doesn’t love soft material on them 🙂
  • They are supposed to keep my shirts dry  — my boobs will be leaky, not wanting to have any accidents.

Overall I believe these nursing pad’s will do their job. They are nicely sewed or should I say serged, they are super comfortable. They are a bit noticeable, but if wearing a bra that has a bit of padding you wont really be able to notice. They wash well, I washed them to prep them so when baby comes they are all set to go. As far as absorbency I cant really say just yet, this is still so new to me, so I will update you on this one.

**Update**

Hey mamas so I now that I have my ittle Edward here with me. I had to update you all on these nursing pads. I’ve been a leaky mom these days. I am still loving these nursing pads they absorb well. The only thing I would change about them is I would love to have a waterproof barrier, there are some nights that I wake up to a drenched bra {no fun}. Other then that they are perfect I need to add some more to my stash. You can never have too many nursing pads 🙂

Gumstone Amber Workshop Review #MamasBabe

gumstonelogo

 

As you all may already know. My son Ashton wears a Baltic Amber necklace, because of this necklace is the reason why we now call him “bam bam”. My husband’s first comment on Ashton’s necklace was “he looks like bam bam from Flintstones”.  I truly believe in the Baltic Amber you can read my post about it on I Love Cloth Diapers Blog. Since the Amber necklace has worked amazing on my little bam bam I also wanted to try it on my little Edward and myself. Gumstone Amber Workshop sent me a mama and baby necklace set and I must say they’re gorgeous. Gumstone Amber is genuine and authentic the beads are nice and smooth, they are not sharp. They lay nicely on your skin, my necklace is so comfortable to wear I sometimes forget I have it on. I have not put the necklace on little edward yet since I don’t really want to put it around his neck just yet. I think I will double it around his ankle for now and as he gets a bit older put it on his neck. To have him ready for his teething days.

Here is a little background on Gumstone Amber Workshop.

We are from Lithuania, from the coast of Baltic Sea, home of amber, but we live in London at the moment. Since we are from this region, we decided to work with amber because it’s in our culture, and we know a lot about it. Our ancestors worked with amber for ages. They valued nature very much that’s why we show pictures of amber in its natural environment.

We’d like to present you our shop of authentic Baltic amber teething necklaces and bracelets for babies. Also we have some jewelry for women and maybe sometimes something will be interesting for men. Hope you’ll enjoy our products and find whatever you were looking for.

Size:

Length of mother necklace is 17 inches. Beads size: 11x10x7 millimeters
Length of baby necklace is 13 inches. Beads size: 9x7x6 millimeters

Why wear Amber ?

It helps with soothing and calming effects on children. Which is why amber necklaces are very popular to have on your children while teething, because it truly does help. For mothers and adults it can help sooth and calm areas in your body that ache. I wore my amber necklace while in labor, to help me with labor pains not sure if it worked but will say I withstood those pain till about 7cm without medication so I would say thats pretty darn good.

Here are some fun facts.

gumstonephotome

  • When amber is worn on the skin, the skin’s warmth releases minuscule amounts of healing oils from amber which are then absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. The other theory is based on
  • It has been scientifically proven that amber is electromagnetically alive and produces significant amounts of organic, purely natural energy.

Overall I love our mama and baby necklaces, I believe that every mom should totally have a set to match withtheir munchkins. I recommend Gumstone Amber Workshop great authentic quality and pricing. There are many stores that sell amber but they are not “the real deal” so please be careful.
