Since she spends most of the day at school, your daughter may need a different kind of pad than ones adults use. Work with your daughter to choose feminine hygiene products that are best suited to her lifestyle and preference.
Choose pads that are most suitable for your daughter!
Today there are so many different kinds of pads to choose from!
There is a much bigger variety of pads today than there was decades ago. More than 100 kinds of pads are now available on the market. They are all different in terms of functionality, feel to the touch, size, thickness, design, and more. There are so many even adults don't know which one to pick. Each type has its own unique features. If your daughter uses the right one, she will be more comfortable during her period.
It's important to choose the right pad according to how much she is bleeding or her plan for the day, like pads for heavy flow days or pads to use when she has gym class, etc. Also teach her how to use pads so she'll know exactly what to do when her period comes.
Three keys to choosing the right pads
Choose pads according to her lifestyle, like using winged slim pads when she has gym class or extra-absorbent pads when she has an extracurricular activity and will not be able to change her pad for a long time.
Menstrual flow is generally the heaviest on the second day. If that's the case for your daughter, you can tell her to use pads for heavy flow. You can ask her about her flow condition and pick the right pad according to how much she is bleeding.
Your daughter may prefer pads with a cute design or pads that are gentle on her skin. Ask her about her preference when choosing pads.
