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 was 13, my oldest ways 13, the other was 14. I gave my oldest the thinnest, but most absorbnet pad availabe. My youngest, I came home from work, she said "Mom, I got my period today, I used your last tampon, we need more". I guess she was more prepared than I thought,lol.

I was 11 and my daughter was 11.  I have always only used pads, but she prefers tampons (and no, i didnt teach her how to use them, so im assuming she read the directions!  LOL!).  I buy my daughter tampons, pads and liners and let her choose.  I buy the cheap stuff.
