Washable large size minky and bamboo sanitary pad.

Large reusable pad

Perfect for overnight or postpartum use, our large minky and bamboo sanitary pads are comfortable and absorbent. Topped with dark grey bamboo charcoal fabric and backed with PUL coated minky fabric. The minky fabric is available in five colours; red, blue, pink, green and cow print.

Nighttime bamboo sanitary pad

The grey bamboo charcoal fabric is soft against your skin, which is ideal for a good nights sleep, or when feeling a little tender after giving birth. The dark colour also means that stains are unlikely to show, which many people prefer in a washable pad.

Machine washable menstrual pad

Fully machine washable, in cold water to prevent stains from setting and to help remove blood. The layer of microfibre in the core of the pad is fast drying but highly absorbent. The bamboo in the sanitary pad is highly absorbent. Although there is no need to soak these pads, some people prefer to put them in cold water before washing to help with the process. You can also add salt or a small amount of washing powder when soaking, although we wouldn’t recommend doing this for more than a day before washing.

Waterproof protection

Backed with a waterproof, pul backed minky, these bamboo pads are not too thick and unlikely to slip in your underwear. The minky fabric tends not to move around too much whilst you are wearing them and the snap fastenings will hold them in place. We will usually send a random selection of colours unless you request a specific one.

These pads are approximately 34 cm long by 15 cm at the widest point at the back of the pad and 10 cm at the front. (Not including wings.) We have smaller regular and petite pads also available. These have the same fabric layers as these larger pads.

    At first I was very septic to try these pads, it took me months to decided but finally I ordered them and no regret I should of done it sooner, I tried a very expensive american company for the same products and my budget just couldn’t order that many, so I saw this company on line , the price was right so why not, I just feel in love , no more scratching or pulling it drove me crazy almost no leaks still adapting, they are very absorbant if not more then store brands, I recommand to at least try and I notice the difference immediately, mother nature will thank you
    and so will you’r body.

    As someone who has always had heavy periods I was nervous about switching from my “Overnight” (I wish) throwaways.
    I’m not going back. These are more comfortable, do the job better and I’ll never need to shove toilet paper into place and run to the shops ever again.

    Have used both minky and regular reusable pads from nappyneedz – have not leaked one bit! They’re really comfortable to use, but I do agree with one of the comments that the darker (minky) ones are much nicer to wash but apart from that, brilliant. Also, one of the cheapest sold in NZ in my opinion and of really good quality too. Highly recommended.

    The comfort and absorption ofthis product is amazing. Love them. However they do tend to slide backwards in mv knickers due to the slinky outer material and end up out of place, even with the snaps done up. Not sure what to do about that.

    These are great, however the minky fabric means they don’t stay in place as well as the other pads nappyneedz sells. I have supremely heavy periods so I use these with a menstrual cup and they work well together. The dark surface is nice in regards to stains

    Hello, i would like to say that these are a fabulous product and although you sell them as a sanitary pad, I have used them in a different context.
    My Mum (82) is bed bound and has to wear incontinence pads that chaff her badly and she wears these as a soft, absorbent pad! to stop the breakdown in her skin, which has been a real help in easing her discomfort, so thank you.
    my 27 year old daughter has tried a couple of them buy has very heavy periods and if you are able to maybe make them a lot more absorbent that would be excellent!

    These pads are perfect! They don’t get too hot and they don’t leak. I also have quite a heavy flow, and these re-useable pads are much more superior to the disposable ones which always leaked, got hot and heavy! I got 6 which was enough to get through, by rotating 2 in the wash, 2 to wear and 2 for tomorrow. I totally recommend if you’re okay with washing out your own …. fluids…. 🙂

    I should really have read the description of the product more carefully; I would have preferred brushed cotton, NZ-made products like I’ve bought in the past, but didn’t really think about this when I bought these. They work well so far. However, they are fully synthetic fabric, a bit bulky and uncomfortable, and the big ‘Made in China’ tag on the front is a bit off-putting and gets in the way.

    I love these pads 🙂 I first found nappyneedz 5 or so years ago, when I was struggling with endometriosis. I had (and still have) horrifically heavy periods, I was going through a tampon every 45mins, and was using those plastic pads from the supermarket. It was an overwhelming amount of waste! And then I found the overnight sanitary pads here (nighttime washable sanitary pads for $3.50) and they genuinely changed my life. I had tried a reusable pad before but the material was scratchy and the shape made it bulge out my backside. The pads from nappyneedz had no such issues! Big enough that I could wear them overnight without worrying (a rare feat when you have a super heavy period), they are very soft and comfortable and last a really long time. I just yesterday ordered my first new pads in 5 years, and I’m so glad I found this same company again! My pads arrived today (very fast shipping) and I had upgraded to these minky bamboo pads and I love them already! I’m really happy to see 100’s of reviews, when I first found the site I legit thought it may have been a scam as all the other pads I was looking at were atleast $20 per pad. Thank you very much for my pads, I will treasure these new ones for the next 5 years! (ps. I feel like I sound like a paid review but I’m not, I am autistic so I sometimes come off robotic and I wanted to gush about finding my favourite pads again after 5 years)

    These are fantastic! I bought them in April and wanted to wait a few months to give a review. At the time, I got 4 large and 2 petite (regular were out of stock but glad they were). The not-reusable pads I used to use were nights one, so these large are perfect for heavy flow days/nights, great coverage. I combine with a cup on heavy days but just use the petite pads on lighter days/nights. I found the petite size perfect for first day/just as flow is starting, and for light days at the end. I’ve just ordered 3 more petite because they really are little, I don’t know they’re there. Re the slippage, I noticed there are some of my underwear that do this, with both the large and the petite (so it’s not the size of the pad) and some don’t so I’ve just figured out which ones not to wear at that time of them month. Love the charcoal coloured lining with these ones! Love that the pads just go straight in the wash!! Overall, I am delighted and wished I made the change earlier.
