Always maxi with wings.  Make sure you get the wings.  It took my dd a couple cycles to get everything figured out.  She just started in October.

I bought her the colorful kotex ones. 

no tampons though. I wouldn't even consider them until she's older.

I got my daughter a variety of different pads/brands for her to try and find which ones she liked.  She liked the thinner ones and needs maxi pads because she has a heavy flow due to a bleeding disorder.

I use the kind with wings at night and tampons during the day.... but that's for me. I don't know how it would different for a young girl.

I don't remember what i used. Something with wings. Never get anything without wings lol. I like the infinity pads though. They hold a lot and are thin and comfortable. The colorful kotex ones aren't bad.

Back when I first started, I used maxi with wings just incase there was a leak, then went to tampax tampons
