My daughter will be 14 yrs old in October and very small for her age, just got her first period over the weekend. Mind you we were camping, so I feel so bad for her. I happened to have 2 pads in the camper for some odd reason (I use tampons). We went to the store and I couldn't believe the selection they had for pads. We stood there for what seemed to be forever.
My sister has 2 daughters that have also gotten theirs, so I called her. They both just said to make sure the pad had wings... Needless to say, she realized this when we were going to head to the pool, she didn't get to swim all weekend.
We ended up getting the Walmart brand ones with wings, but I don't know how much they will hold. However, the next size up looked too thick.
What kind do your or did your daughters use when they first got their periods. My daughter is still in size 12 / 14 in girls clothing..
edit: She does not want to use Tampons and I will not force it on her as I didn't start using them until I had her (I was 19). Although I think they are much easier to use, I will leave it up to her). Thankfully I will only have to go through this 1 more time (in 10yrs as my youngest is only 3 and the my other kid is a boy)..Answer Question
