DrammyDroopers DrammyPads - Thankful For Cloth Month WAHM Spotlight!

I am so glad I switched to mama cloth!  Mama cloth, in case you don't know, refers to cloth menstrual pads. Some of you may remember the review I did of DrammyDroopers' DrammyPads back in August.



As part of Thankful For Cloth Month at The Bee Hive Buzz, I wanted to feature DrammyDroopers as one my favorite WAHM made cloth pads, the DrammyPads!

DrammyDroopers DrammyPads were the first cloth pads I had ever tried!  They are what got me hooked on mama cloth!
 



DrammyDroopers says it perfectly on their Etsy shop listing for DrammyPads and I quote "if our babies can go eco-friendly with cloth, why cant we."  Well said DrammyDroopers and so true!  DrammyPads are handmade and great quality!  You can really see the care and love that goes into every DrammyDroopers product!

The prints are what hooked me to start.  They offer an assortment of bright and colorful patterns.  Then there's the fact that they fold up and snap to fit snug in a small pocket in my purse or in my diaper bag.


DrammyPads are washable and reusable so you can use them over and over again!  How green is that?!  You're doing something green and good for the environment by not throwing masses of disposable pads into our landfills plus, imagine how much money you'll save each month by not having to purchase disposable pads.  I hate the idea of just throwing money in the trash, literally!  

DrammyPads are constructed of a layer of super soft suedecloth, a layer of batting, 2 layers of flannel and one layer of fleece as a moisture barrier.  These are so incredibly soft and comfortable, there's just really nothing like it.  There's no chance you'll ever find a disposable pad that is as soft and cozy as these!  And they are not bulky either. So even though I am a cloth diaper addict, I don't have to look like I'm wearing one!


DrammyPads are designed for light to heavy flow so there is no need to go to the pharmacy and get a box of light pads and a box of heavy pads.  You've got everything you need all in one.  They have a special contoured shape for the prefect fit.  


They are 9 inches long with wings on each side that snap around your panties to hold them in place.  And just to let you know from my personal experience,  they do not budge!  They stay in place.  I wore them on very active days and never had a problem with them moving or bunching.  And if you have ever used disposable pads then you probably know that icky feeling of a waded bunched up pad in your pants.  Gross!  No thank you!  Well not anymore for this gal!  I'm sticking with cloth for sure.  Another plus for me was that they did not leak and because of the many layers that make it so absorbent, they always felt dry when I was wearing them!

And did I mention that DrammyPads are super easy to wash?  I suppose you can wash them multiple ways.  You could hand wash them by themselves if you want.  Or you could rinse them and throw them in with your regular laundry or throw them in with your diapers.  I'm throwing them in with my diapers when I can and then line drying them. 

I highly recommend you give DrammyPads a shot!  They are so soft and comfortable, they stay in place and don't bunch up, they are absorbent and didn't leak for me, they felt dry, they are eco-friendly and they're going to save our family a lot of money!  I'll never go back to disposables! I'm a 100% cloth mama for sure from now on!

  1. I had never heard of mama clothes until I started perusing Mama websites for cloth diapers. I like the idea of saving that money, and not throwing away all that trash.

  2. In theory I like these, but the thought of them makes me a little queasy somehow - I guess it's something you get used to!?

    1. It didnt take any getting used to for me! I loved them within 5 minutes. Honestly I never realized how gross disposable pads felt until I started wearing cloth pads. Cloth seems icky at first until you try it. Honestly it would take a lot more getting used to if I switched back to disposable pads. And I cant use tampons anymore after having my baby so pads are my only option.

  3. I think I'd be able to green my period more easily using these. Menstrual cups kinda gross me out, but I'm thinking about just trying it.
