Lunapads are a big part of why I'm a Moonwise Woman. If you don't know what a Lunapad is, it's a reusuable cloth menstrual pad. That's right. Reusuable. You wash them instead of throwing them away. Really. Why would you want to do that? Simple. They are so soft, more comfortable, better for the environment, better for your body, come in fun prints and patterns (and in organic cotton, too) and actually, easy to use. I've been using mine for about five years, and I wish I'd switched earlier.
Switching was actually pretty easy, and since I'm fairly open about my moontime, fielding questions about what's in the pot in the bathroom isn't a big deal. Last year when I had my third baby, I ordered a Lunablanket, some pantyliners and some of their long pads (and extra liners) for postpartum. The blanket was fabulous! I was half expecting my waters to break in bed (they didn't), but I didn't want to worry about if they did. After my postpartum bleeding stopped, I used the blanket for diaper changes, so it's still being used all the time! When my moontime returns, I'm going to indulge in a custom made soaking pot if I can find one. I love my Lunapads, and I'm looking forward to cycling again with the moon.
