Gift for my friend

Few months ago I read a book title: 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life. By Cami Walker. I read the Chinese translated version.
I like the idea of giving a gift to a person every day. He/she can be a friend, a stranger, family members it doesn’t matter. These practices will help to make ourselves giving more, rather than receive more.

My Experience with Cloth Liners

Have you ever heard about cloth pads? What is your first impression about cloth pads?

I first came across with cloth pads when I was surfing for info about cloth diapers that I am planning to use on my baby and I found this idea of replacing disposable pads with cloth pads. As I always have the concern of where and how the disposable pads going to dispose since there are plastic covers at the back and is very environmental unfriendly.

So I decided to give it a try.... on the cloth liners first as I can't use the pads until I deliver :P

The pads is nicely packed.

I have to admit besides the environmental friendly thingy, I bought the liners based on the nice outlook too. Those pads look really attractive don't they?

I bought in pairs. Those are not water resistance so they can only be used during normal days.

My experiance with the cloth liner:
First, it is very comfortable, because it is cloth and similar material with your panty. You wouldn't notice it much after wearing for sometimes.
The absorbance is ok, as I am wearing it during normal days, it is just normal discharge.
It will stay still on your panty you don't have to worry it will move around.

However, it is of course thicker than normal disaposable panty liner. :) Not much problem for me as long as it is cotton and breathable.

Do wear a fitting panty if you are wearing the cloth pads :)

So far I am quite satisfied with it, and I will sure try the cloth pads next time when I have the chance.

Note: You can find the pads here. I bought it from mama patch.
