|The gorgeous minky fabric.|
The pad has two snap settings for how snugly it will fit to your underwear. These are very helpful if you are a smaller or larger woman so you can make it the most comfortable fit for you.

The pad is 14 inches in length and made out of an upper of minky, two layers of zorb, and then backed in fleece. These are very absorbent.
If you have never used mama cloth before, it is a lot like cloth diapers in that you have to prep them. With my pad came a magnet telling me how to prep this pad. It states to wash 2-3 times to get the zorb at it's most absorbent point. I did the wash like I would a diaper. I washed first in hot water, and then did two rinses in cold. Allow to dry, and then repeat this process.
Once I was done prepping the diaper I wanted to see how much water it would hold. I know water and blood are not quite the same and the absorbency may vary with the different liquids, but I was very pleased to find that I did not encounter leaks from the pad until I had put 4 cups of water onto it! This is quite a lot! I would say that I personally change my pads every 3-4 hours and it is unlikely that it would become that soiled during this time which is wonderful! This means leaks are not very likely to happen.
This pad will make a wonderful addition to my mama cloth stash and specifically to my stash or post baby. When I'm not postpartum it will make an excellent overnight pad as well.

I love the colors on mine as well as the softness. This is a far cry better than most of my cloth pads which are flannel and PUL backed as it breathes so much better!
