Exactly what I've been looking for!
These are so great- they have great coverage for heavy-flow nights or long days when I know I won't have the change to change my pads as frequently as I might like. I've switched from period panties (which just weren't feeling really clean to me) to these and have been really pleased!
misleading, poor design, not suitable for night
I've been using cloth pads for almost 20 years now. The overnight pad was a gift from my midwife. I was excited to see a long supposedly overnight shape with flared ends and wings, for I have always had a heavy flow, and additionally like this shape for postpartum as well. HOWEVER- the material is only 2 layers of cloth plus the 2 tiny inserts which are the same exact sized insert as Glad Rags standard day pad inserts! there is no way to add absorbency beyond that small area of insert, thus the the blood just wicks up and seeps through the long flared ends. You can feel how thin the bulk of the pad is. The shape and length of it is great it's just not thick or absorbent enough to handle a heavy flow much less overnight use. I read all these other reviews and am shocked that others think this pad is sooo great, unless I'm really the only one who's tried this with a heavy flow. I am super disappointed and will be looking elsewhere for a thick overnight long pad w/wings that is not disposable.
Hi Eleanor, I'm sorry to hear that the Night Pad didn't work out for you :( It sounds like you might prefer our Night Pad Plus (https://gladrags.com/collections/night-pads/products/color-night-pads-plus), which has inserts that span the full length of the holder!
Love the overnight pad
Love the overnight long pad. You can,add extra absorbent with inserts so its customizable. Ideal for overnight no,matter how heavy your period, and no leaks. So,comfy, feels like wearing nothing. Comes in great patterns and colors. Definitely a MUST have
Perfect for the nights
I used to dread sleeping with a napkin during the night worried about staining my bedsheets. This night is amazing! It’s comfortable and secure and not once have I had an issue. It’s also easy to add more layers for that extra peace of mind
why would you use a single use pad ever again
I've been using GladRags pads for a few years now and I keep adding to my collection. As someone who wants to create as less waste as possible and can't always wear a menstrual cup, these reusable pads have been my life savers. I love the night pads because when I'm sleeping is when I have the least control and these things have great coverage. My favorite part is the wings because that's always what I preferred even before switching. The always changing fun designs and colors are just the best bonus and they're so soft to sleep in! I tell everyone I can about them!
