    What pattern did you use to make your cloth pads?
    How do you clean them and get the clean after use??

    Thanks so much,

    I made my own pattern- I used to use always pads, and still had some handy, I basically used that as a guide.

    I rinsed in cold and washed like I wash everything else. Extra rinse though.

    I drafted my own pattern also. home (shewhorunsintheforest) has some good ones though.

    I throw them in with the diaper laundry.

    I can't sew so I bought cloth pads.

    Right now for cleaning since I use cloth diapers as well I just toss them in with the diapers. Once he's out of diapers I will most likely rinse them out and toss them in with darks or something.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    My friend and I discussed velcro but I vetoed it when I realized it might be to noisy when out in public.

    I cut out one yesterday, ironed and pinned it. I just need to sew it together.
