make the switch to cloth pads

The Switch To Reusables Made Easy!

Have you been giving your disposable pads & liners a second thought? Want to make the switch but not sure where to begin?

We were in the same place you are now, not long ago! We gave our products a second thought… then a third, and a fourth! We tried other options and decided to create the best alternative to disposable pads & liners that we possibly could!

In the Fall of 2016, my mom, my sister and I soft-launched Blushing Bluebird Essentials (AKA Bluebird Pads on social). We had created a complete line of reusable cotton pads & bags using exclusively organic cotton fabrics + an eco-friendly waterproof barrier.

Bluebird Pads are locally made (by yours truly + co), pretty, eco-friendly and OH-SO comfortable!

Ready?

We know that you will love
how comfortable and natural they feel
and how simple it is to use them!!!

Bluebird Pads come in 8 different sizes and shapes. This chart is an accurate representation of the variety and the info below lists how much they absorb and what products they are comparable to.  Switching made easy!

In other words

If you want to try Bluebird Pads as a daily liner, consider the Petites.

If you want protection for little leaks, try the Classics.

If you want them for menstrual use and have a light to regular period, try a Classic Starter Kit.

If you consider your period to be regular to heavy, go for the Super Starter Kit.

If your period is very heavy, definitely try the Optimal Starter Kit.
