Our Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pad starter kits contain:

Optional: Add extra pads, some reusable intimate wipes or a mucky box to soak your dirty pads 

Bamboo & Minky pad kits contain 5 pads in different colours.

Care Instructions:  Wash at 20c or 30c, warm washing sets blood stains and can damage your pads.  Line dry, reshape whilst damp.

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! If you're new to all this (or just new to Cheeky Mama's) then read our top tips on how to use Cheeky Mama Cloth Pads, plus how to care for your Cheeky Mama Cloth Pads - it couldn't be easier!

Life changing
Monday, 27 March 2017  | 

The have literally been a god send for me, I've had issues with menstrual bleeding for the pads few years and have bled almost everyday for the past 2 years, for the first time in those two years I have had a break of 2 weeks on not bleeding, I believe these are the only thing that have helped with this change as I feel the products in the usual pads had an effect on my body and were playing with my hormones a lot. These are life changing for me thankyou

Great little kit
Friday, 17 March 2017  | 

It's great little kit, that came really quickly. Like some other reviews I'm still getting the hang of the right way round to put it so it doesn't slip. But looking forward to trying it out some more when I need to.

Response:

Thanks for reviewing the kit Anna. Just a couple of ideas for you to stop the slipping - the underside fabric (the minky side) can be brushed in 2 different directions. If you are finding the pad slipping a little, try turning it 180 degrees so what was at the front is now at the back - this sounds odd but if the fabric is going in the other direction it grips better on your underwear and stays put! We also recommend wearing a tighter pant with a high percentage of lycra in, this also helps keep them in place.

Converted!

Very comfortable, much more absorbant than disposable, no odour. The double popper is very useful in ensuring the pads don't wander whichever knickers you choose. I bought two sets, one with the add on of extra day pads and one with the add on of extra night pads which when mixed up have made two perfect kits! As a household we cannot live without the wires every single day and the travel bags with waterproof section for used pads are beautiful and just the right size for out and about.

sanitary pad kit
Friday, 9 December 2016  | 

I bought this kit as after having my third child I have experienced difficulties using my normal female hygiene products.

I was a bit dubious I have to say, but I use re-usable nappies and reusable wipes on my baby, so whats good enough for him is good enough for me. I was really surprised as to how much the pads absorb, and I don't get that horrible sweaty feeling I get from disposable pads (sorry if TMI). Anyway I found them absorbent and comfortable. Only minor disadvantages (and I emphasis minor) is rinsing and then soaking them whilst I wait to do a coloured wash... I have a very nosy 8 year old who wants an explanation for everything, And I think as other people have mentioned -- pad slippage. I think non slippage placement of the pads may come with practice

So all in all I am happy with my purchase and will probably purchase more of them as I only got the starter kit. Thumbs up from me.

Be brave - you won't regret it!
Thursday, 19 May 2016  | 

I was initially rather squeamish about trying these but I always find that disposables cause irritation, so eventually decided to take the plunge. I am so glad I did!

They do feel a little bulky at first, compared to disposables but within about 10 minutes of putting the first one in, I had forgotten I was wearing one. At first, I was going off to the toilet to "check" but soon grew to accept that yes, they really DO work, nothing was leaking and the pad doesn't slip (just remember to follow the advice about having the nap of the fabric in the correct direction).

I chose the black topped ones and you really can't see anything, so much nicer than a disposable! The only thing is, you have no idea how much blood they have absorbed - I was quite shocked (in a good way), when I washed the first one out, as they arrived on day 2 of a heavy period. The fact that I have the black topped pads meant that I didn't see anything other than diluted blood during washing.

Cleaning was far less scary than I had anticipated - a few minutes soaking in a small bucket of cold water, then several rinses until the water ran clear. Then soak in water with tea tree oil until ready to wash in cool soapy water for reuse (obviously, if I had more I probably wouldn't need to wash/reuse). At the end of the period, chuck them all in the washing machine to make sure they're all thoroughly sanitised.

I won't be going back to disposables and have ordered a full kit to complement this starter kit. I will be definitely be recommending to all my friends!

Absorbent, but the smaller ones can be prone to moving
Friday, 13 May 2016  | 

The panty liner size moves around a lot, a very tight pair of knickers is required. the regular size are good though, they don't move too much. I was a little self conscious using these for the first time as they are thick but they are very absorbent and feel much nicer than disposables.

Fantastic

Light and easy to wear. You don't notice you are wearing a pad at all. They don't leak like commercial plastic sanitary pads or give you the waddle. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative product to plastic products.

Great for beginners
Thursday, 28 April 2016  | 

Loved the minky style pads. soft even after a few washes. I am new to cloth pads so this was great for me as a beginner. Only thing I'd say is the regular for me some up short as I like more coverage towards the back but that is just personal preference. would use again with menstrual cup as back up.

Just right for getting started
Friday, 8 April 2016  | 

I was really pleased with this kit when it arrived last week. It was delivered promptly on schedule and had I loved the way everything smelled faintly of essential oil.
The bag is a little bigger than expected but so soft it will roll up to fit whatever handbag I'm using. At present I've got it hanging on the bathroom door as it holds all 5 of the pads very comfortably in one pocket. In fact, when I go for the full set I'm thinking of getting a large version to keep them all in while I use the small one for out and about.
The wipes were unexpectedly useful - I haven't needed them for their intended use yet but I ran out of cotton wool pads (for face cleansing and make-up removal) and grabbed a wipe as a substitute - no going back now as I'm more than happy with the results and it's another thing not to be constantly throwing away! I've left a separate review of the wipes.
The pads themselves are great. I really wanted to like them and was nervous that they wouldn't live up to their promise in case it meant I had to rethink my decision to switch, but my fears were unfounded! I didn't manage to use them on my absolute heaviest day as I was away overnight and haven't quite worked out what I'm going to do when staying away from home - I'd be interested to hear how other people manage it? - but they have seemed to be really absorbent and so comfy. Obviously they're a little thicker than disposable ultra pads but I quickly adjusted to the feel and they can't be seen through clothes, including skinny jeans. I haven't had any problems with them moving about either, even at night. The first time I washed them there were a couple of marks left on the surface but when I re-read the instructions on the website I realised I had put them on a fast wash so hopefully that issue will be remedied by a longer wash and the addition of some stain remover spray.
I'm definitely converted now and will shortly be ordering my full kit! Re-usable living is addictive though and I now keep thinking of other disposable items we could replace!!!

Excellent product with mooncup
Friday, 8 April 2016  | 

All the pads are very absorbant, so a great product as such. like other reviewers I found the pads moved about a bit and this did create some leaks - hence the four stars. I suppose this is inevitable unless the material is changed. However, I had absolutely no problems using them in tandem with a mooncup. This was a great combination with no use of disposable products. The other reason for four stars is that more grown up, discreet colour ways for the double wet bag would be appreciated for discreetness. Even just for home use I don't want my kids rifling in the attractive, very bright bag!

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!
Thursday, 23 February 2017  |  Fflur

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!

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.

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.

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 😍

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.
