Mama Palooza- CozyPads Review and Giveaway


CLOSED
Congratulations! Winner  #17 Ms. M



Like disposable diapers, disposable pads are convenient to use, but they add to our landfills and can deplete our bank accounts. Reusable pads are a great way to save money and to reduce waste. This is a review of reusable pads from Tamarack Creations.

What I received: CozyPad Cloth Maxi in Turquoise and Lime Flowers and CozyPad Mini Green and Blue Dots. The pads I received have a plastic snap button on the wings of of the pad to allow for easy and quietly wrapping around the panties. Quietly is important to me because I feel it allows users to be discreet with usage. Disposable pads often have that noisy plastic/paper strip glued to the bottom of the pads and on the wings. When taken off it is loud and crinkly. Everyone near the bathroom door can hear who is on their period.

These reusable pads are also soft, thin and even lighter than I expected them to be and so they are comfortable to use. Reusable pads, depending on the type of pad (how they're made and who makes them) can be slightly heavier and thicker to wear than disposable pads. This can become uncomfortable.

I didn't feel either of these pads I tried are absorbent enough for heavy days. They would have to be changed out too often, in my opinion, but they are great for medium to lighter days. I haven't tried the JazzyPads available on the website, but I believe the JazzyPad line would be more suitable for heavy days.

Price comparison: Reusable pads tend to be more expensive than disposable pads initially, but over the long hall they are more affordable than disposable. Why? Because they can be reused over and over. Use them. Wash them and then use them over and over again. The environmental impact is great too. The entire pad is reusable. There is nothing to throw away, no pad wrapper, no pad, nothing. Even better, Tamarack Creations reusable pads   are more affordable than other reusable pads on the market today, cutting the cost even more.

Fun comparison: The design of both pads are very attractive. Taking a look at the website many of the pads on Tamarack Creations have fun and attractive designs to choose from.  When the time comes, I plan to introduce my daughters to disposable and reusable pads. I hope fun designs like this will help when them over. I'll make sure to let them know about the environmental and financial benefits of the reusable, of course.

Promo-code: INTRO10 for 10% a single order.

Giveaway: One winner can win a a CozyPad Cloth Maxi and a CozyPad Mini. Deadline: April 30, 2011. To ENTER [MANDATORY ENTRY (you must do this FIRST)] visit Tamarack Creations and tell me what design is your favorite.
