First, when did you start your period? Has your daughter started yet, and if she has, did she start at the same age you did?

I started when I was 11. DD is 11 and she's been getting into those moods lately. I know she's going to start soon :-(

Also, what kind of pads do you buy for your DD? I only use pantyliners with a tampon the first couple of days and overnights at night, so I'm pretty clueless when it comes to daytime pads. I want her to be comfortable.

I started when I was 12.  My dd started right after her 9th birthday.  I don't have a specific brand of pads I buy for her, I just buy whatever type she needs (liners, overnights, med flow) and whatever is on sale.

I was 11. Our Daughter will be 9 on the 28th and so far she hasn't started.

I don't use Tampons myself, just Pads. So, when she does start, I'll get her Always (with the Wings, of course).

I was 11 when I started. My DD is only 7, so we aren't there yet.

I got mine when I was 11, my daughter hasn't gotten here's yet and she probably won't for a while considering she's five! But I always bought Always brand pads and Always night time pads!

 I was 13. DD is 10 but very moody and I wouldn't be surprised if she starts soon.

I started when I was 13.  We just talked about this in the American Book the other day.  I think she wants to wear pads.  She read about the tampons and doesn't seem to like the idea of it right now.

I'm hoping she gets hers later like I did.

I was 10 when iI had mine. I used maxis with wings. It will be awhile before my daughter had hers. She is only 17 months.
