Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pads are an eco-friendly, healthier, more cost effective alternative to disposable pads. For those new to cloth sanitary pads (csp) the concept can be a little “Ew!” but to be honest using cloth as opposed to disposables is more comfortable. Because they are so much more absorbent, moisture is drawn into the pad, leaving you feeling fresher for longer.

Disposables have to contain lots of nasty toxic chemicals, dioxins and gels to enable them to be absorbent, which can lead to sensitive skin, irritation and thrush. Bamboo however, has a natural antibacterial quality and because it allows your skin to breath, can potentially reduce the risk of yeast infections and discomfort.

Of course it goes without saying that cloth pads will cost a fraction of what you would be spending on disposables each month which just end up sitting in landfill!

Please note that this listing is for a SINGLE pad, multipacks are available separately.

Why not add some of our reusable intimate wipes to your order and / or a wetbag for carrying clean and dirty pads / wipes? You can also buy the pads in packs of 5 or 10 , alternatively take a look at our Cheeky Mama Sanitary Pad kits and SAVE money!

Day pads - wish I'd tried these years ago! Perfect.
Tuesday, 20 September 2016  | 

Like a lot of ladies, I came around to the idea of cloth sanitary pads after having great success cloth nappying my baby. I only wish I'd tried these years ago - they are superior to disposable pads in just about every way!

Since having a baby I've found tampons very uncomfortable so I started using pads much more, but couldn't stand throwing so much rubbish in the bin. As well as saving on waste, there are several other nice features:
1) Comfortable... They are not just 'okay', these pads are actively much more pleasant to wear than disposables. Soft and comforting! No more scratchy crinkly plasticky feeling.
2) Absorption... They absorb much faster and basically better than disposables.
3) Exercise... They stay put (for moderate levels of exercise), and don't get sticky/gross or disintegrate like disposables.
4) Fit... Although they are bulkier than disposables, it doesn't make any more difference to what I can wear.
5) Look nice... I got the purple minky and they are very pretty

The only downside is of course the washing procedure: you have to be more careful than with cloth nappies because hot treatment (and some chemicals) will permanently set blood so you can't just chuck them in with your normal laundry. I've been hand washing them and trying different soaps, funnily enough a normal bar of Simple soap worked better than either bio or non-bio laundry liquid for me.

I'll be recommending them to anyone who will listen!

I love the texture of the pads. It feels so soft and warm but doesn't make me sweat. Very easy to wash clean. Doesn't slip.

Give it a go – you might surprise yourself
Monday, 11 April 2016  | 

"When I first researched cloth nappies – before the birth of my first baby – I did happen upon the subject of cloth sanitary wear… and I was (to be quite honest) completely shocked and quite scared by the concept. Cloth nappies, I was completely on board with – I knew I would make those happen – I was completely, and totally committed to avoiding landfill and reducing the impact of my procreation on the planet in this way. But cloth sanitary towels…? Sponge tampons…? No way! Some people just take this eco thing too far!

So I cloth-bummed my first… then discovered used reusable wipes… then I cloth-bummed my second. Then one day I watched a friend use a whole roll of kitchen towel to (kindly!) mop up a tub of yogurt I’d dropped and was weeping over in my newborn-owner-wretched state – and I thought to myself what a waste! That was the last roll I bought. So, you see, I gradually slipped into a more reusable lifestyle.

When introduction of solids was underway enough with my second for my periods to return I was suddenly conscious of the waste and the chemicals. Did I really want my bits (bits which brought my beloved babies into this world after all) to be in such very close contact with plastic and goodness- knows-what? My wolf-pack of mamas had whispered about moon-cups – but I wasn’t ready for that. Then the subject of CSP came up again. And this time I was ok with it. Not completely ok – the thought of soaking and rinsing make me feel squeamish – but okay enough to try it.

What a revelation! All this time I’d been buying into products that promised to be ‘cotton fresh’ or to contain ‘extract of silk’… it seems like such a no-brainer now – why not just cut out the middleman and actually have fabric next to your skin instead of plastic profit pushing products posing as such! I’m not joking. ALL the things you don’t like about sanitary towels – the sweat, the less-than-fresh smell that makes you want to shower every two seconds – the itchy feelings – even the visual horror of seeing your own blood on a bleached white paper – they’re not products of your period – they are products of your products! And they make you want to change pad quicker… Now why might a giant moneymaking industry want to make you do that?

With cloth I feel safer – it’s very reassuring to have something a bit more noticeable down there. They are not so bulky that you’d notice them though – or that I’d change my outfit to accommodate them. The charcoal top of my chosen pads mean that primal alarm bells are not set off when I catch sight of it when I pop to the loo, causing me to change it every single visit, regardless of time used. And the feeling of the product – they are so soft! They feel like a luxury. The colours are really gorgeous.

With cloth I own my period – it does not own me. I get to use these lovely pads and I am self-sufficient. I never again will have to drag myself off to the shop, cramps impeding my journey, to hand over my vaguely embarrassing purchase to the spotty Saturday boy to scan before I can carry on with my day. I thought reducing environmental impact would be my main motivation here – but it’s not – it’s much more than that. I am a complete cloth convert (and a bit of a bore if you get me on the subject!) Give it a go – you might surprise yourself. Thanks Cheeky Wipes!"

Great product and service.

I normally use a mooncup for my monthly period which has severved me very well but I sometimes suffer from random bleeds so permanently wear sanitary pads which is just so wasteful. I was recommended Cheeky Mama's by a friend and am so impressed. The pad is soft, comfortable, slim and very absorbant. I had no leaks even after going horse riding and the pad didn't scrunch up or move. I'm definitely going to buy more and recommend them to friends.

Ideal size good value.
Monday, 29 February 2016  | 

I misread the amount of sanitary pads and thought my parcel would contain more than one sanitary pad as illustrated in the accompanying photo to my order. The pad that came is well made and very soft, but alas, felt to uncomfortable to wear and slipped backwards and scrunched up in the middle. I think the pads are a wonderful idea, but not for me.

Soft and bright colours
Monday, 15 February 2016  | 

Love using these pads- so much more comfortable than scratchy disposables and lovely to think you're helping reduce landfill as well. They're possibly bulkier than most people might be used to, but once they're on you don't feel it. No slipping issues here- you just need to make sure you've got the nap of the fabric facing the right way and wear fitted underwear. Give them a go- they also wash really well- soak in cold water then wash on a cool cycle- very clean and not at all horrid to deal with.

Great for heavy days but get the charcoal
Friday, 12 February 2016  | 

I got a couple of these to try as i'm brand new to cloth pads. I got a regular and nightime size. They're brilliant for absorbing and even wore one on a heavy day when i went on a 3 hour hike and it was perfect. The only problem is i have quite clotty thick periods around the middle of my cycle (sorry if thats TMI!) and the daytime pad has stained really badly as i got the white bamboo terry top. It looks prettier but if you have similar issues to me or can't stand staining id say go for the charcoal top. I would definitely buy more of these but would go for a couple of charcoal ones.

Amazing products

I must admit to being a tad sceptical about using these as I have never been a pad fan but these are fantastic, they are so much more comfortable than disposable ones and I felt so much more protected and strangely warmer while using these.

The best ever!
Tuesday, 29 September 2015  | 

I bought the charcoal bamboo maternity/night and day pads for myself and my sisters. I was quite nervous to use it 1st time and wore a black dress to work worried about leakage. But they are amazing! They hold so much that you can only know when you actually hand wash them. I do not need more than 2 on the heavy flow days.I have now encouraged my other friends to try them. Also, in terms of washing, all you need to do is soak in cold water and detergent and then wash it off! Thats it! My only request is to add more dark colors to the kit such as maroon or all black for many women who initially fear of the staining , although there is none.

Amazing Pads!
Thursday, 23 February 2017  |  Rachel

These CSP are amazing. They are so absorbent and soft, so much better than plasticky irritating ones. If you're in any doubt whether or not to try them, you should do it. I just rinse them and put them in a normal wash and they're as good as new.

Wish I'd got them sooner!

I've been wasting money on non-eco friendly baby wipes as a make-up remover and never thought of investing into an alternative. Cheeky wipes are great. Teamed with coconut oil (as they recommended for make up removing) it is simple, cheap and best of all eco friendly! Thanks Cheeky wipes!

Prompt delivery and excellent product
Thursday, 23 February 2017  |  Victoria

Use a cheeky wipe at every meal sitting. Much better than using wipes and kinder to little boys face! in can see us using them for a long time !

Excellent wipes
Wednesday, 22 February 2017  |  Rachael

I've been using these on my baby for nearly 2 months now and love them. I've sometimes used disposables when out and about but find these reusable wipes much better. I can feel confident that they're not getting nasty fragrances and other stuff on her sensitive skin but also I find the clean is better and quicker. I only need one wipe for a good thorough clean and it feels less slimy than a disposable. The box system is very simple to use, though I will look into getting a second mesh bag so there's always a clean one available when I've got a wash on. I highly recommend this product.

So easy to use!
Monday, 20 February 2017  |  Emma

I was a bit sceptical but I love them. One wipe really does do the job! They smell amazing, wash nicely and I'm doing my little bit for the environment.

Quick delivery and great service.

Thank you!

Best baby buy
Saturday, 18 February 2017  |  Sophie

This is the best baby item I've bought. Absolutely love my wipes. Recommend them to everyone and will be what I get my friends for baby showers!!

Truly fantastic wipes!!!
Thursday, 16 February 2017  |  Naomi

I wish I'd tried these years ago! I not only would have saved money on wipes but also nappy cream as these are so gentle on baby's bum I've not used any cream since I started using them!!
Wash so well and the whole kit is everything you need! Even down to the travel bags to use out and about they really have thought of everything! Already recommended to my friend who will be ordering soon, and anyone else who asks when they see me using them! And to think I'm doing my bit towards the environment is just the icing on the cake. Love them 😍

Great product

Soft, easily washable, dries quick and looks great!!!!

Perfect changing mat
Monday, 30 January 2017  |  Daisy

Had the perfect situation where I needed this today... changing in a place with no baby change station... it's big enough so she couldn't touch the floor even if she rolled and when she weed on it it didn't soak through so I was able to roll it up and put it in my bag without soiling everything else... also its super soft . What more could you want

Exceeds expectations
Saturday, 28 January 2017  |  Marie

We absolutely love these wipes. The whole system is so easy to use at home and when out and about. They do a really good job of cleaning our babies bottom with just one wipe and are more gentle on the skin than disposable wipes. We have used these in combination with eco disposable nappies from birth and have never had nappy rash. They have the added benefit of being better for the environment.
