MomsCrafts4U - Mama Cloth {Review}

On to my second brand of Mama Cloth.

While snooping around on Etsy one day, I decided to type in 'Mama Cloth' to see what would pop up. I wanted to see some WAHM Mama Cloth. Boy am I glad I did!!

I stumbled upon MomsCrafts4U - A Canadian WAHM who makes some GORGEOUS looking Mama Cloth. She has some funky prints and I just HAD to try them out!

Veronica was on bored for a review, and I was thrilled to be able to test these babies out.

A little bit about MomsCrafts4U:

I am a Work-At-Home Mother of 2 & wanted a way to turn my hobby into something more, so MOMS CRAFTS 4 U is my store.

I have been a crafter for a good many years, so you can be rest assured that all of my items are QUALITY items. If you have any problems and/or questions, please contact me at momscrafts4u [!at] hotmail.com


I love to Sew, Craft and stitch to help support my family.

I was sent 2 - 8" pads in these beautiful prints. My first thought was "How pretty are these?" I showed my MIL and she agreed. I showed my sister... her response "Wow! I wouldn't want to ruin them!"

Such a pretty print. Reminds me of spring.

These pads are made of multiple layers of cotton and have a zorb inner and they are backed with fleece. They also snap with poly-resin snaps. The cotton top is very soft as is the fleece backing. These are super trim but are very absorbent!

I wore these on the 3 day of my cycle and they held up beautifully. I was not scared to go out of the house nor afraid of leaks. The fleece and snaps kept them in place. I could barely tell I was wearing them, since they are so trim.

Backed with super soft fleece.

 When it came to wash time, I rinsed in cold and then washed in warm and they came out like new. No stains or anything. They came out perfect.


A great feature of these pads is the number system. Veronica has made it very easy to identify the absorbency for your mama cloth.



"1" - Liner Thickness (Flannel inner layer)
"2" - Regular Thickness (ZORB inner layer)
"3" - Heavy Thickness (ZORB & PUL Inner layer)
"O" - Organic Inner Layer

How great is that??

Overall these pads were my go to after the first couple of days of my cycle. I bet the 10" heavy would be awesome for overnight use!

Veronica's prices are also great. An ultra thin liner goes for about $4.50 USD and her Postpartum/Heavy pads are $11.50 USD. Most of her 8" pads are between $6.50 and $7.50 which is pretty darn good. They come in a variety of prints and fabrics plus if you want, you can create your own customize pads. ie absorbency, print etc. All you have to do is contact her!

I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a wonderful handmade Mama Cloth. I love supporting a fellow Canadian!

Thank you Veronica for introducing me to your wonderful products!

Much love
