I purchased the pads for this review as testers from Janine’s Place.
I’ve been a customer of Janine since she first starting out doing upcycled woolies. I’ve watched her WAHM business expand to include adorable teethers, doll diapers and now carefully designed and tested cloth pads.
Janine was cheering me on and offering tips as I waited for the return of my cycle (ostensibly because she wanted me to be able to get pregnant, really so I could try out her creations). She was one of the first to know when I was ready to hop on the reusable cloth train!
When I spotted her offer of her new, gorgeous overnight pads for a low, tester price, I couldn’t resist. I’ve tested a variety of WAHM products, and even other reusable pads from big brands, and they’ve generally needed some significant improvements before being marketed. My overnight pads from Janine’s Place just needed her newly designed labels and they were ready for her Etsy storefront.
Janine’s overnight pads are 13″ long, just like the overnight disposable pads I used to use back in the pre-green-period days. They’re soft and comfortable, but not inconspicuous! Just like I’m not wearing my PJs out of the house, I’m definitely not wearing an overnight pad (disposable or reusable) out of the house. Comfy enough for snoozing? Absolutely. Absorbent enough for overnight? Yes, Mama! For my moderate flow, I had no leaks whatsoever.
Bonus points go to Janine’s pads for being really, really pretty. I never thought that I would actually be excited about using any kind of menstrual product… but pretty pads make the whole predicament so much more… pleasant!
Janine’s pads are made with one layer of fleece on the back (this is what makes it leak proof), layers of bamboo fleece in the core, an additional layer of bamboo fleece that extends fully into the wings, and topped with organic jersey. The double snaps allow you to customize the fit.
You can purchase yours at Janine’s Place on Etsy!
