Personal experience has taught me that your daughter’s first pad may or may not suit her. She may find it too long or too thick. So give it a few months. We want her to be comfortable and not dread it right? I would also suggest you have a talk with your daughter about puberty once you notice physical body developments in your daughter. They normally start around age 11-12 years, but it could b earlier for some. We need them to be prepared fr what is to come.  

A few things to remember

  • Pads come in different sizes for heavier and lighter periods. So figure what your daughter needs in the initial months. It could change as her periods become more regular.
  • They also come in deodorant varieties, but these can irritate the vagina. Simply changing pads often can cut down on any odour.
  • It’s a good idea to change pads at least every 3 or 4 hours even if you’re not menstruating much.
