For most women like me, one of the worse challenges we face when getting our periods is to be able to sleep for more than 2 hours without having to get up and go to the bathroom, or check on our messy flow. Thus far, I have been preventing this, by purchasing the expensive brand of pads, which claims that it will keep me dry for up to 10 hours; however, the heavy flow size is unavailable most of the time, which it is really inconvenient. Until now, I didn’t know or noticed that equate had an Overnight Extra-Heavy Flow Maxi Pads with Wings, like the expensive brand that I usually buy; so I was very excited to try these pads, which I couldn’t help, but compare it with my usual ones. In the picture bellow, you can see them both side by side, which clearly shows that, the posterior side of the equate pad is thicker for extra protection, which makes it feel heavier than most pads, but in my case, it is really a relief.
My daughter and me, both, had the opportunity to try these pads overnight; my daughter slept through the night, waking up the next day, without a mess; meanwhile, I only got up twice, just because of habit, and I felt dry. I only wish that Walmart would keep these pads on their shelves.
