New Moon Pads – Reusable Cloth Menstrual Pads

New Moon Pads didn’t make our top 10 list of reusable pads because there are very few customer reviews available for them, pretty much only the testimonials on their official website. But that said, almost all of the reviews I could find are raving (in a good way) about these pads.

These pads come to us from British Columbia, Canada, by a work-at-home mom who describes herself as a cloth pad artisan. New Moon Pad’s motto is, “Simple…easy…back to basics.” Although the concept of cloth pads may be simple and back to basics, New Moon Pads offers a staggering array of colors, patterns and options for customization. With over 80 prints in stock, you’re bound to find something you love.


Special Features

New Moon Pads come in five sizes to cover the entire menstrual cycle. After choosing based on desired flow coverage, you can get a custom fit by selecting your specific body style: petite, average or tall/fluffy. Wings with snaps are optional. Their pads are:

  • Made from new, premium quality fabrics.
  • Available in a choice of soft cotton flannel or regular cotton.
  • Backed by Malden Mills Sherpa fleece for leak resistance
  • Available in over 80 prints.
  • Guaranteed for quality and workmanship.


Benefits & Positive Feedbacks:

These pads come in a fantastic assortment of colors and sizes. Also, this is one of the only reusable pad makers that gives a choice of winged or wingless pads. Customers also appreciate the breathability of this product.

New Moon Pads:

  • Come in a large selection of prints.
  • Are extremely customizable.
  • Don’t slide the way pads with plastic backing tend to do.
  • Are machine washable and dryer safe.

“The customer service is very personal and prompt, and the pads are flawlessly made.” (

“I have had fewer cramps, decreased flow and I have also found that the vaginal irritation that I was constantly dealing with is gone. (”



Downsides & Negative Feedbacks:

New Moon Pads aren’t available on Amazon, which is usually the best place to find unbiased reviews. I wasn’t able to find any negative reviews on these pads after searching high and low online. After a little digging, I’ve found this one complaint about the wingless version of the pads:

“The pad falls into the toilet EVERY time I go to the bathroom. Every. Single. Time.” (

    I used this site to search all different kinds of cloth pads, and New Moon was the only one that sounded just right — fuzzy non-slippery back, good fit, great reviews and absorption, not crazy expensive, lots of options — and they are just as described. Plus the vendor replies instantly to any inquiries, great customer service, prompt delivery. I’m so glad I found these.

    Very impressed with New Moon pads.

    + PROS: I ordered the reusable menstral pads from for an Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoebox. These pads will go to a girl age 10 - 14 in Africa. The proprietor of New Moon Pads was very helpful and quickly responded to my many email questions. Since I do not know the exact age and size of the recipient I ordered 3 small pads with wings and 3 medium pads with wings. The wings are snapped together around the gusset of the underwear to keep the pad in place and provide extra absorbency. The pads come in a big variety of prints to choose from. They are well made and shipping is free with an order over $ 69.00. I like the pads so much that I ordered a second set from New Moon Pads.

    I originally purchased these for my daughter, who has had the unfortunate luck of starting her periods stupid early (age 10). She has worn the pads to school and dance, as well as horseback riding and hiking. Her periods are typically very heavy and protracted. After some testing to rule out medical issues, we’ve basically come to the conclusion that she’s just got to deal with it and hopefully will outgrow it. In the meantime, she uses the pads, as well as disposables. She finds these to be comfortable and stay in place well (even for horseback riding). I think we should have gotten a higher absorbency, but I borrowed her pads and, for my light periods, they are more than enough. I actually ordered myself a set. I normally hate pads, but my cup just doesn’t sit correctly as often as it used to as I get older so I needed another option. The company was easy to work with and the owner seems super nice. I used my set of pads backpacking and it was really convenient… at least, as far as having my period in the back country can be. My daughter used hers earlier on the same vacation when we were just doing day hikes and was comfortable. Overall, I’m quite pleased with these pads! (For reference, we have ultra maidens and ultra supreme maidens, moon lights, plus a liner. I really like the pads with rails, especially overnight and my daughter likes the ones that are a little wider for overnight.)

  5. I have been using New Moon pads for a little over a year and I love them! I have some in each size which covers my range of needs throughout my period and for nighttime also. There are lots of patterns to choose from but I prefer the dark solid colors. They have held up great to the washer and dryer. I use only the ones with wings and they stay in place well, and are comfortable. I highly recommend them!

    Switching to cloth pads was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a woman. It is honestly the first time in my life I feel comfortable during my period. They fit nicely, absorb very well and do not irritate. I’m never going back!

    + PROS: Excellent absorbency, comfortable, a vide variety of designs, quick delivery

    I have been using New Moon pads for about a year and I love them! I find them more comfortable than tampons. They are very absorbent. I like the selection of sizes and patterns.

    • I just wanted to add that I use the ones with the snaps to hold them in place, so for me there is not an issue with them falling into the toilet.

    I bought these pads a few weeks ago and I love them. They are comfy, don’t leak and wash up nicely. Shipping was fast. I would recommend this company to anyone.

    I have used these for years and they are fantastic. Never dropped one in the toilet. Especially not a winged one. Not exactly sure how that could even happen. Even after years of washing/drying multiple times a month, they are in great shape.

    I love New Moon Pads. They only fall in the toilet if you forget you are wearing one, and even then it’s only ever happened to me with liners.
