How I went from “Ewww” to Proud

As a young girl I saw my aunt using cloth diapers, long enough ago I don’t even remember what style she used but I can only assume that she used flats and plastic pants. My reaction then to cloth diapers was an emphatic “eww, no way I’m EVER doing that!” (Never mind that I have literally been facefirst in… “mud” and jumped back up laughing to continue chasing the cow I was after! ) So, how did I go from “never ever” to #MakeClothMainstream ? It was a journey that actually started with mommycloth! In the year before I got married I started seeing more and more information about the chemicals in disposable pads and tampons. I also saw a blog post (don’t ask me now which blog) where she talked about having a lighter flow after switching to cloth because her body wasn’t being irritated by the chemicals! Well after getting married I finally made the leap. I grabbed some of Cowboy’s cotton work socks out of the mending bag and made myself some mommycloth!

How do I travel with it? Over time, however, the menstrual cup has continued to crop up in cloth diapering groups. It seems that, once you try one, you can’t help but tell everyone else about it! I would read about how menstrual cups were more comfortable, less wasteful, cost saving, and better experience each month and my curiosity grew. I took a leap of faith a few months back and decided to try a menstrual cup for myself. My experience? I’ll never go back to traditional tampons again. I’ve become one of those menstrual cup evangelists, telling my sisters to try one, bringing it up with friends, even mentioning them at parties. When I talk with women about the cup, two of the most persistent questions and biggest hurdles are how do I clean a menstrual cup and how do I travel with it?  How …
