Mama Cloth Review and Giveaway!


 
I am so excited to bring you this review and giveaway from Mama Cloth!  Meg is the WAHM behind Mama Cloth she is a Canadian and proudly supports hand made and made with love items!  She has personally picked out the materials for this review and I must say she did an excellent job! 

Just a little bit about her company from her website: 

Hi I'm Meg!

A Fashion Designer & Product Developer turned Stay-At-Home-Mama!  My educational background & previous work experience is in the Fashion Design/Production industry giving me the design, sewing experience & fabric knowledge to make your quality Mama Cloth!
How it began...
After cloth diapering my little one to save money & reduce our household paper products, I decided to make the switch to cloth myself. Immediately I loved it & I will never turn back! It was even easier than cloth diapering (to me) and made Aunt Flow that much more tolerable! Once you try cloth pads you will soon realize how soft and breathable they are compared to any disposable products. Shortly after starting my cloth journey I did some research, tested & gave out some samples & started up this business hoping I could encourage other women to make the switch themselves! It's important to me to spread the Good Word On Cloth for OUR health & the health of this planet for our future generations <3 

My Switch to Mama Cloth
I did a post on switching to Mama Cloth a while back when I first started blogging you can find it here.  It may seem a little gross at first the thought of switching but after trying it for a few months now I actually look forward to using my stash of cloth pads!  (I know it sounds weird:)


I LOVE Mama Cloth's Page on Why you should use Mama Cloth and I find it very helpful especially if you are just pondering the idea of it still!  You can find the page here!

If you are wondering more on how do you wash the cloth pads go here to their site and you can see how simple it is (and much less mess than cloth diapers)!


What I was sent: 
3pk Flannel/Terry Wipes or Wash Cloths (Owls with Lavender Terry)
2 Layer Wipes: 1 Layer Soft Cotton Flannel, 1 Layer Soft Terry
Very soft & very absorbent! Great for using in replacement of Baby Wipes, Tissue, Eye makeup remover pads, Washcloths, & Mess Cloths.

I love these and I am using them as Wipes for little girl!  The Flannel side is super soft against her bum.  And the print is super cute!

1 Long Flannel/Hemp AIO Pad in Black/White Polka Dots
This pad features:
-2 Layers of soft Cotton Flannel, 2 Layers of Hemp Fleece (for super absorbency)
-2 size KAM snap closure for an adjustable fit (great for plus size women too)  
-These pads measure approx 13 -13 1/2"& are good for Moderate-Heavy Flow.
-These pads are for Mamas looking for a bit more coverage & length than our standard pads.

These are Great for night time and the first two days that are heavy!  I love the extra length at night I just feel more secure sleeping.  I would even say these would be good for Post Partum!

1 Regular Length Organic Bamboo Velour, Hemp Insert, PUL Backed AIO Pad (Purple & Lavender)
This pad includes:
-4 Layer protection, waterproof backing, wings, & adjustable KAM Snap Closure! These pads are meant for years of use & many machine washes to come!
-Organic Bamboo Velour is the fabric touching the skin & is dyed with Eco Friendly Dyes
-Cotton Hemp Fleece layer for extra absorbency
-PUL waterproof breathable fabric on the back layer for leak protection! 
-Double KAM snap closure for an adjustable fit
-These pads measure approx 9 3/4" in length

I like the fit of this Regular size pad that they offer!  I especially like the double snap closure for an extra adjustable fit.  The length is just right for me (I know everyone is different in this area)!  I like the waterproof fabric especially if I am at work so these worked great for me.

1 PUL Pad Wrapper (Lavender)
The Pad Wrapper is great for on the go with Mama Cloth.  You can place your clean one inside then when you need to do a change just wrap your soiled one inside!


After seeing the great pack I was sent you can go and see for yourself the many other products that Mama Cloth offers HERE on their website!

Another great service Mama Cloth offers is Cloth Diaper Conversions (prices vary)!

You can also connect with Mama Cloth on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Oh my. According to her website, the average woman puts 300lbs of disposable feminine products in the landfill in her lifetime. That is very disturbing. I just wonder how long it takes for these products to disintegrate. Cloth is definitely a more eco-friendly option.

  2. I learned about how mama cloth is free of the harmful chemicals such as diooxin that is produced in the making of some pads and tampons. I also learned that "American woman spends $900-$1,200 on disposables or $80-160 on cloth over a six year period". I definitely want to switch to mama cloth.

  4. No chemicals in mama cloths and that the American woman spends a little more than 10x the amount on disposable pads than she would mama cloth over 6 years.

  5. I learned that she does snap conversions for CD and that it's OK to wash your mama cloth with your cloth diapers. I'd been wondering about the last one!

  15. With an average of 20-25 pads per cycle, this saves 8000-10,000 disposable pads over 33 years (an American women’s typical length of a menstrual cycle).

  16. I learned that they make two different kind of pads: pockets which you can add extra absorbency to and all in one (AIO).

  17. I learned that it's best to hang dry these pads so you don't shrink them or melt the PUL.

  19. I learned that 10-20 pads are recommended for those that want to go completely paperless. Guess I need to get some more! :)

  23. I learned that converting to cloth could help my sensitive skin. It could also help my son's sensitive skin to convert to cloth diapers. I just gotta do it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I was wondering how many pads I should try to have in my stash and they recommend 10-20. For me it would be more economical to buy a few at a time, so that is what I have been doing. I also didn't realize there were pocket and AIO pads! This seems unique to Mama Cloth because of the other brands I've found I've never come across it.
