Randomly chosen Mini Maxi Pad

100% Cotton Cloth Menstrual Pads

This NEW SIZE is perfect for teens, tweens, petite ladies, and those who want moderate protection without a lot of bulk. I often get custom requests for sets for younger girls. These help to reduce bulk as they do NOT have the folding soaker portion, yet they hold nearly as much liquid as my light/medium pads (about twice as much as my dailywear pads). Instead of a folding soaker portion there is a hidden, sewn in double layer of natural undyed cotton felting. As with nearly all my pads there is no plastic-y waterproof layer to insure optimal feminine breathability and health. This means you can wear the pad any-way-up and it works just as well.

Mini- Maxis are excellent for everyday use, internal device backup, or for light days. When snapped in position for use the center is 2 layers of soft, absorbent 100% cotton flannel and 2 layers of undyed natural cotton felt. The pads are approx. 7.5" long and 2.5" wide when folded. They can be used with either side next to your body or your undergarment.

NOTE: You will not get the exact items pictured as this is an old stock photo. I go through my collection of flannels very quickly so patterns are always changing. If you would like to make a general request such as "dark colors" or "no cutesy figures" I will do my best to accommodate.

**NOTE** I occasionally get comments in feedback about someone preferring the pads could be chosen and not random. Please note there are quite a few pad sellers out there who will let you choose your patterns - and charge you a premium for it. They have to! It costs extra money to invest in enough of 1 fabric to guarantee a print, extra time to take pictures, extra expense to list individually, and extra hassle and cost if you get stuck with a pattern that isn't popular. My goal is to keep prices as LOW as possible so that EVERYONE can afford to switch to cloth. That being said I try very hard to choose fabulous, beautiful, and adorable prints and colors for my pads so that you will love them and also attempt to accommodate special general requests to avoid certain colors and/or designs.

There are a number of beautiful cloth menstrual products available on the market, what makes MamaBear products unique is that I've tried to address the 3 following issues I encountered when I began using cloth products:

1) COST: Many products are gorgeous and nearly all will save you money over disposables as they last YEARS, but the initial investment can be high. I want you to be able to use cloth products without breaking the bank! You can get FOUR MamaBear pads for the same price as ONE of some other pads!

2) BREATHABILITY: I choose not to use PUL in my LadyWear products. While I do use this in diapers this is because of the sheer volume of liquid one has to retain! During the entire menstrual cycle only a few OUNCES of fluid is expelled. I've found that if you size the product properly to your flow there is no need for waterproof layers. At most a breathable, thin layer of fleece might be used in overnight/heavy pads. This means greater airflow, less bacterial growth and less odor (a common problem with disposable pads). Unlined pads are more comfortable for most women. If you have particularly heavy flow you might want to consider a feminine cup (internal product) with a cloth pad back up.

3) DOWN-TIME: This is the amount of time your pad is NOT usable. If you have to wait until you accumulate enough to wash as a separate load it's likely that means each pad only gets used once/cycle. If you wash your pads with your regular laundry or by hand you may find that they are not clean or dry completely through. MamaBear pads are Quick-Dry! The layers that provide protection fold out completely to allow the entire pad to dry quickly, even if you hand-washed and hung them! You can use each pad every day of your period meaning you have to purchase fewer pads! Also, because they fold out it is easier to get all of the layers COMPLETELY clean and rinsed meaning less irritation and more hygenic periods!

All MamaBear Products come with Care Instructions!NOTE: Due to the very personal nature of these items and for hygienic reasons I CANNOT accept returns on cloth hygiene products.
