Loving my Pink Lemonade Shop Cloth Pads #PLS

plsre

Sizes Available: 7 Sizes  

Topped: Organic Bamboo Velour | Minkee | Bamboo Fleece

Inner Core (absorbent layers):  layers are made of bamboo fleece

Backing (waterproof layer):  PLS pads are backed with water Resistant Windpro Fleece

Extras: All pads are wing style and are fastened with a quality poly-resin snap

Absorbency: I used my PLS pads after a month of not getting my period, due to still breastfeeding so my period was a bit heavier then other months. PLS had me covered I did not leak once. I did however change my cloth pad every time I went to the restroom. The flow went right down on the center of my pad, that just shows to prove its an awesome pad to me. I have a few other pads that the flow goes down to the wings, but that did not happen with my PLS. 

Workmanship : Sue uses nothing but the very best fabric materials for her pads. These pads are made with lots of love and attention to detail. They are high quality pads in every way. 

How may you ask? Fabric materials used are high quality (bamboo velour, bamboo fleece, minky, wind pro fleece), lots of LOVE!!! 

Style|Fit : Pink Lemonade cloth pads are rounded  front and back. The fit is great, after you figure out what size works best for you. I notice, I like longer pads I feel more covered that way. Really just depends on what you like and what fits your body frame. Also should I mention that I wore my pads with tight leggins and you could not notice them 🙂 

Still wondering how to wear cloth pads ?? Click here to read more..

My Stats:

26 years old| 160 lbs | 5’5

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

Overall: I am completely in love with my Pink Lemonade Pads. I currently have 7 of their pads, and cannot wait to add more to my stash. I am currently still breastfeeding my son, so there are some months I do not get my period, but when I do. I love using my PLS pads. The quality and workmanship of these pads is just amazing. Not to mention Sue whom is a sweetheart and her Assistant Alex. They offer such a great customer service, which to me, is key to a successful business. Sue offers an array of pattern choices, I think thats the hardest part in choosing 🙂 These pads are totally affordable, and Sue is always offering discounts on her pads. Making it easy for you to build a stash. You will not be disappointed.

Aunt Flow is Here ?!

Aunt Flow paid me a visit last night!! Say what?? I thought “they said” I wouldn’t get a period while breastfeeding? What’s wrong with this picture?? I was definitely enjoying not having a period. I mean I love my cloth pads and all, but ill have a period for the rest of life. So, to not have one right now was amazing.

This may be too much info for the average person. I’m sorry. Just thought I’d share my excitement. Not. Maybe It will only pay me a visit on some months and not all months. I have no idea seriously. Granted I’ve had some abdominal pain these last past weeks, this now explains why.

Well I guess I’ll be using some new pads I got a few weeks ago. Ill be showing you all my stash very soon. Stay tuned..

How long did it take to get your period after having baby and breastfeeding?

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.

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
