first of all, dont be mean to the boys who peek in here. they should be applauded for their bravery in a world that stigmatizes them knowing about women's bodies. most are never exposed to sch information, and never bother to look for themselves.
i just started to make a trial set of Mama cloths. im planning on getting a Diva cup too, but i wanted to have pads on hand because i am SO SICK of buying manufactured products.
so rather than pull-ups that continue the consumption, try reusable. i have heard such great things im taking the plunge. i use cloth instead of TP too, its SOOOO nice. if homemade pads are at all similar it will be awesome. i'll let you know how it goes
