Depending on the pad they tend to be a little too narrow for a hammock. Usually they are about 20 inches wide. Since hammocks wrap around your shoulders and hips, a pad that can encompass your shoulders and hips is optimum. I used to use my CCF pad, but I actually cut it in half and turned the two pieces 90 degrees to normal and then duct taped the two halves together along what used to be the side edge. Effectively I made a wider but shorter pad. I used a scrap piece of CCF for my lower legs and feet, but also have used my pack or extra clothes. If you are petite the 20 inch width may work without any cutting and taping. I didn't have much trouble with sliding of the pad, once I was on it. Make sure you pitch the foot end a little higher than the head end of the hammock. That will tend to make the lay flatter with less slide.
