While I’m not currently having any “punctuation,” due to ecological breastfeeding, the flip side of that is that I do have pretty intense discharge. Or maybe that’s just what happens after you have two kids.
Either way, one of the things I do to keep my underclothes looking new without using disposable pads is to use reusuable ones. It saves me time in that I never run out & have to go to the store and I think I will be able to use them for a REALLY long time, which means I can probably at least break even. Better than either of those, though, it saves my sanity — I don’t have all those scary chemicals so close to my body! In fact I bought 2 of each of several kinds and will be doing a series on which I liked best and why in November as part of The Green File.
If you’d like a sneak peek, you can check out this post I did at Simply Stacie’s place.
Do you use reusable pads?
