I ordered 3 of the 6-inch moderate pads. *Also pictured is an 8-inch that I purchased after this post was written.
I paid (before shipping) $10.65. I did use a coupon code that I found on the Instagram account. Be sure to follow The Wittle Whale for your code! The cost of the pads ranges from $3.95 for a 6 inch light pad to $9.95 for a 12-inch moderate pad.
Don’t forget, if you go through Ebates on your Etsy purchases, you receive 1% cash back plus, new customers get $10 cash back!
Variety of Styles & Sizes:
There are several different size options from 6 inches to 11 inches. There’s not a huge variety of styles. I like the one she uses but if you have a certain shape you like, you might want to check if you can get a custom order done.
Variety of Prints:
There is a few different prints listed but not a huge variety.
These pads are VERY comfy. I really don’t notice them when I wear them. The fabric is all very soft and doesn’t seem to shift, even with a lot of activity.
What I Didn’t Like:
I wish there were some more options listed in the shop.
Customer service was excellent. The owner included a handwritten note on my order form and she also included in some freebies with my order! Everyone always loves freebies! I had a question on one the freebies and she responded very quickly. Shipping was very fast. I got my order days before I expected it.
Moderate 6 Inch Pad
I honestly didn’t expect this little pad to be able to hold much liquid. Thankfully, I was wrong. After 10 minutes, this pad had not leaked through at all. The top layer of the pad was still wet to the touch which is not an issue for me as I prefer to change it multiple times in one day. Even after soaking up the water, the pad was not too heavy or “diaperish” feeling. I added another 1/4 oz of water to this pad and waited 10 more minutes. I was happy to find that this pad still was not leaking or feeling too heavy. The dampness on the top was still there as I expected.
If you aren’t picky about a giant variety of prints, you should like this shop. The pads are all nicely made. I like that the owner embroiders a letter on the side of the pad by the snap to tell you the absorbency (m for moderate). That is very helpful when you are pulling one out. The only issue I had was one of the snaps came loose during the wash cycle. This isn’t an issue with the pad itself, rather, it’s an issue with the snaps. I’ve had the same thing happen with other ones (different companies). I might be pulling too hard when I snap/unsnap so make sure you do it gently. The Wittle Whale has other items available than just pads. If you are in the market for baby wipes, burp cloths or bibs, check them out! I plan on purchasing more from this shop. In fact, I have a shopping cart of items ready to go as I type this.
