Cheeky Mama Ultrapads - Luxury Cloth Cotton Sanitary Pads from Cheeky Wipes - for heavy flow

Size:        30cm x 7 cm (approx.) - suitable for heavy days of your period, overnight use or severe incontinence.

Consists of 4 layers:

  • Leakproof printed cotton outer layer (laminated),
  • Two absorbent cotton/organic cotton layers,
  • Inner layer cotton / organic cotton
  • No fluorescence, bleaching, formaldehyde, dioxins or any harmful chemicals that cause rash, irritation and itching.

What's the difference between these and the bamboo minky pads? The ultrapads are made of cotton which is a natural material rather than minky which is manmade. As such it tends to be cooler to wear. They are also thinner, so if you prefer a thinner more discreet pad or if you're buying for a teenager, these are perfect for you. They are also less likely to move around as the cotton fabric will stay in place better. The downside of being thinner is that they are less absorbent, so if your periods are on the heavy side, we'd recommend the bamboo minky instead.

Please note that the price quoted is for s SINGLE pad, multipacks are available separately.

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!

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!

Works well.
Sunday, 11 August 2019  | 

Does what it says on the tin. I haven't been able to make these stain free, even when soaking in cold water, and putting it on a cold rinse/ wash, it must be the material. These cotton ones are much less sweaty than the bamboo minky ones, so I find them much better even though they stain. The buttons do dig in when I cycle so it is not completely comfortable, but it is great to not be using disposables and it is one of the cheapest reusable pads on the market.

Love these!
Monday, 29 July 2019  | 

These are the best cloth san pro I've tried - cotton ones are thin and super comfy and ultra absorbent, they wash well, don't slip around or encourage thrush and don't smell at all - that awful 'period' smell I've hated all my life...turns out it was the awful plastic pads I was using not me! Never going back. I use the 'maternity' size which is a bit alarming but I obvs have a heavy flow and they aren't bulky at all. On really really heavy days and overnight I use the Minky bamboo ones which absorb a ridiculous amount but are a bit bulky for everyday wear for me. Cheeky wipes prices are unbeatable and the quality is fantastic. Wish I'd had these 25 years ago!!

Great size but disappointed with thickness
Thursday, 4 July 2019  | 

This towel is a good size but we were disappointed with the thickness. For a maternity/night pad it's very thin. Love some of the others on here though

Work overnight and for medium flow
Tuesday, 28 August 2018  | 

I've been using these post partum as maternity pads once my main bleeding had stopped. Found them comfy and absorbent, although don't know what they would be like if I was back to my normal period flow. They come out reasonably well in the wash but find it's best if you pre-soak them first.

This is my first time going down the reusable route and I am pleasantly surprised. Once you get over the rinsing straight after and putting in to soak rather than binning itís a breeze. Glad I made the change and will be buying more so I can use all the time rather than just when at home

Disappointed
Friday, 19 January 2018  | 

Was very disappointed - was comfortable but the stains would not come out even though I followed care instructions to the letter. I'll just stick with bamboo/minkee - definitely prefer those

Response:

Thanks for taking the time to review the pads. I find that giving them a spray with some stain remover before they go in the machine does the job. I wash them on 30 or 40 on a longer wash - a quick wash wont give them long enough to move about in the machine!

Thin and comfortable

Deceptively thin pad that stays in place well. Softens after a couple of washes. Not as soft as the bamboo and minky cloth but very comfortable and cool to wear.

Not worth the money unless improvements are made
Friday, 13 October 2017  | 

These pads are very thin and discreet and would offer excellent protection if they would stay in place. I've used mine only a handful of times between the both of them because I'm just not protected. The pads constantly slide up the back of my underwear, leaving me prone to leaking as there is no coverage at the front and I can't very well keep pulling the pad back to the front every 10 minutes. Very disappointing considering how much each pad cost, not ideal for nighttime or postpartum as they aren't long enough. The minky pads, on the other hand, although thicker, are amazing, stay in place and are a great length.

I ordered my cheeky wipes full kit (organic cotton rainbow) just before my baby was born, I kept looking on the website, reading reviews and all the faq's, I really liked the idea of these but wasnt sure I'd cope with the dirty wipes but I wanted to reduce our carbon footprint. I am so, so glad I bought these and made the switch from disposable plastic to reuseable cloth! I have used these for 3 months now and absolutly love them, they are just as easy as using disposable, infact they are better, especially when it comes to poo explosions from a newborn baby, have you tried using disposable wipes for that?! You would need at least 5 or 6 but with cloth wipes you only need 2 max, they wipe up poo so much better! Once you use the wipes you just chuck them in your mucky box with the net bag so when it comes to washing you don't have to touch the dirty wipes, you just throw the whole bag I'm the machine! So easy! I was concerned about my baby's skin before he was born as I suffered with really bad eczema so was worried he would be the same ( so far he has beautiful skin) so that was another reason for trying out these wipes, they are so gentle on babys skin and you only use water and essential oils, no nasties! My boy has never had nappy rash yet, fingers crossed that continues and I truly believe it is from using these gentle wipes! These wipes also wash really well, I love seeing them all hanging on the washing line in the sunshine! ( these are the sad things I get excited about since becoming a mum!) Cheeky wipes customer service is also amazing! I recommend these wipes to everyone I speak to now! And I am so chuffed that the 2 big boxes of disposable wipes i was gifted before having my baby are still sitting in the bottom of the wardrobe untouched! I cant wait to buy more cheeky wipes for mucky hands and faces when we start weaning! My next mission is to make the switch to reuseable sanitary products, which I will definitely order from cheeky wipes too! Such a wonderful company! Thank you so much

Cheeky wipes are very well made. It has been straightforward and simple change. The tea tree essential oil smells amazing and masks any bad smells. The mesh bag that lives in the mucky box is so easy to clip on/off and put straight into the wash. My little girl is now keen to help with her nappy change and wipes herself with the colourful wipes. I would definitely recommend, a superior product to any other wipe.

Friday, 23 August 2019  |  Steph

Just a few days after I received my bundle I started my period. Was very surprised by how long I could wear them and how much they held. The only problem I had was one of the poppers rubbed against my leg and caused me a lot of pain but I believe that was just a result of the pad moving s tiny bit. I wish I had found these years ago as I struggle a lot with certain pads and allergies, these are so soft and donít even smell after a few hours. Love these so much will be buying more stuff in the future.

I hate wearing pads, but because of my insomnia I can't wear tampons at night as I have irregular sleep times.

I bought a pair last month to try and ended up washing every day and wearing the entire period. I have ordered 3 more now! So comfy for nighttime when you need to relax.

So simple, could have used from birth
Friday, 2 August 2019  |  Roisin

I waited until my baby was 10 weeks before ordering these, thinking that they'd be too tricky for the crazy early weeks. It took me all of 2 minutes to set up and we haven't used a wet wipe since. If anything this is easier than wet wipes - just a trip to the washing machine between sets, rather than the shop. I'd highly recommend this to everyone from birth: cheeky wipes take out all the headaches for a pleasant, fragrant, quick and eco change.
