Lunapads Postpartum Pad & Insert - Organic
Includes 1 Postpartum Pad & Insert.
The Postpartum Pad + Trifold Insert set is suitable for heavy/overnight menstrual flow, postpartum flow or incontinence. Postpartum Pads are compatible with insertable Heavy Wing Liners and Trifold Liners to provide increased absorbency.
Postpartum Pad & Trifold Liner Insert are each 14" (35.5cm) long and approximately 3" (7.5cm) wide when snapped.
Pad Base: 2 Layer, 100% cotton flannel base topped with an absorbent panel made of 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece, and 1 layer of ultra-thin nylon to minimize soaking through. Nickel-free, Silver-plated brass single snap fastening.
Liner Insert: 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece.
A single Pad will get you through an entire day of your cycle; just change your Liner as needed. Liners will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Unlike most disposable pads, Lunapads do not contain any added chemicals, gels, or super absorbent polymers. Given this, Lunapads users need to be mindful of changing the Liner insert as frequently as their flow dictates in order to prevent soaking through the Pad. Frequent changing of the Liners significantly enhances the comfort and performance of the Pad.
Lunapads will last upwards of 5 years with recommended usage and care. Many of our customers report they still own some Lunapads from 10 years ago!
Wash & Care
Liners can be washed by hand or machine in any temperature with your regular detergent. Pre-soaking or rinsing in cold water prior to washing is recommended, but not always necessary, particularly if the pads are not heavily saturated. Please note that if pads are being soaked, soaking water must be changed daily.
Heavily stained liners may also occasionally benefit from machine wash and dry in hot settings.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners to clean Liners.
How to Use
Liners can be added as desired by inserting the ends under the ric-rac bands on a Pad. Wing Liners rest comfortably against the inner thigh, providing added lateral (side-to-side) protection. Multiple Liner Inserts may be inserted for increased absorbency. Pads can be refreshed throughout the day or night as desired by removing and replacing the Liners. Please note that Liner Inserts are not intended to be worn without a Pad.
