|Notice the ric-rac bands to hold the liners in place.|
Soon after, I was able to switch to the maxi pad. What I loved right away was the comfort of this pad. It was very thin. Plus, I could wear the pad with one liner, then switch liners, and then with no liners before washing. If you need a little more absorbency, you can use both liners. I found this to be a great feature of the Lunapads - the ability to change the absorbency to meet your needs on a daily basis without having to go to the store and buy many different pads.
The biggest downfall to the Lunapads that I received was that the ric-rac bands tend to get blood on them, so while you can change the liners, the base pad still has a bit of blood on the bands. I did have some pilling on the liners and pads, but that doesn't effect the absorbency. I washed my pads with my cloth diapers, rinsing them first in cold water. They did not come out of the wash cycles completely stain free, but on their care page of the website, they have some recommendations for getting out the stains.
|The pilling that did occur.|
The postpartum pad is 14 " long, and after the initial wash and dry, shrunk down to 12" long. This pad sells for $26.99 with the base pad and the trifold liner. The wing liner I received can be purchased for $12.99 for a set of 2.
The maxi pad is 10" long and shrunk down to 9". This pad sells for $16.99 and additional inserts can be purchased for $5.99 in sets of 2.
Plus....right now there is free shipping on orders over $75.00
All of the pads come in a variety of patterns and colors with many options for colors of inserts as well. I am so glad that I was able to try these out. While I am sure it will be awhile before I need them again because I am breastfeeding, I will definitely be using them when it's time.
