Essential Saltes Baby is all about gorgeous fabrics and custom orders, so you can’t really go wrong here! Want a trim pad, absorbent pad, AIO style or pocket? You choose your fabrics, style and length to fit your lifestyle. I was able to try the all-in-one style pads in three lengths/sizes and loved how beautiful the fabrics were. My samples were in a cute pink fabric with strawberries and another more modern pink pattern, but I would also love me some Amy Butler prints like the ones pictured above.
The all-in-one style pads will be a little bulkier as the number of layers of absorption you choose are sewn in to the wings as well. If this is not your style consider the pocket or custom style pad or ask her and I’m sure she has other options to balance trimness with absorption for her AIO style pads. The pocket and custom style pads will give you the ability to customize absorption on different days of your cycle and will dry quicker on the line or in the dryer.
These pads were very absorbent and adorable, and I would be curious to try some of her other styles and fabrics. I would love to try the microfleece top layer for a more stay dry feeling, the natural fiber fabric options and other styles of pads to reduce bulk in the wings. Check out my review of her fitted diapers as well and you will want to check out her newest quick-dry OS AIO diapers too!
