Switching to Bluebird Pads is easy! It isn’t ‘just another thing’ to add to your to-do list.  Instead of taking out the trash daily, throw your pads in the wash.  Instead of buying pads on a monthly basis, buy Bluebird Pads once and use for years!  Just choose, use, wash & repeat.

How Do I Know What I Need?

To help you decide what products are suitable for you, our pads come in absorbency levels indicated by feathers on the description and on their attached product labels.

1 feather = very light, non-flow (liner)
2 feather = light to regular
3 feather = regular to heavy
4 feather = very heavy

How Many Do I Need?

How many you will need is dependent on your personal period, preferences and laundry habits. As a general guideline, we recommend changing your pad every 3-4 hours during the day and putting a fresh one on when you go to bed at night.  At that rate, a full day’s supply is 5 or 6 pads. Our Kits are a great starting point. If you are uncertain, start there and add to your stash as needed.

How Do They Work?

Simple!

For best fit ensure your panties are snug fitting so they will hold your Bluebird Pad close to your body and in place.

Choose the absorbency level you need (pad absorbency level indicated on back of product label with a feather rating of between 1 and 4)
Place print side down with label towards the back in your underwear.
Fold wings under and snap in place.
Adjust placement if needed.
Wash & repeat!
