Periods (especially the first one!) can be hard to predict at first, so have plenty of pads or tampons at the ready. We recommend filling a small pouch with her favorite product, a couple of panty liners, and a feminine wipe or two. (Our First Period Kit
is a great place to start!) If your daughter has a locker, send this with her on the first day of school and make sure it remains stocked. Or, toss it in her backpack to keep with her at all times. The pouch makes it easy to grab on the way to the restroom, and it keeps things simple and discreet. If she doesn’t have a locker or a backpack, try tucking a few products in the pocket of a folder or a binder. In the case of any leaking, an extra pair of underwear or pants is another great thing to keep on hand.
