Reusable pads?

Want to give these a go but don't know where to start!
I generally use a moon cup but tend to use a pad at the start of my period as I never seem to know when it will properly get going and again at the end to make sure I'm finished.
I'm not heavy at all so just need something light to medium but still leak proof just in case.
Just want to try out a couple to see how I get on and they fit well. Any recommendations?

I use the daily ones from Earthwise Girl. They're the smallest and thinnest; if you're trying to replicate a disposable pad they might be worth a shot?

I used mine with a mooncup or by themselves depending on where in cycle I was at, no problems.

They also have a deal where if you buy 3 in a pack, they'll donate the same to a young woman who needs some sanpro

I have used washable pad for about 10 years now, most of mine are fairy hammocks and some luna wolf both are available from Wee Notions. My preference is for the minkee topped fairy hammocks they are lovely to wear and don't stain smile

I use a Canadian make called Lunapads. With the mooncup but only on light flow days. They are great, super comfortable, I've had them for about a decade.

Thanks guys ☺ think the fairy hammock.ones look great, love the name too! Saying that they last a decade means I'll certainly get my use out of them, just need to decide on pattern now 😕

I've just started using reusables in the past couple of months and I love them. So fleecy and comfy and I haven't leaked out of them (yet!). Mine are sparkly with uniforms.

I have Charlie Banana ones which I love - they are so soft!
