Advice on my 9-year-old starting her period?

Help! I think my 9 year old is starting her period. What should I get her? Do they make products that small? I am not ready for this as I didn’t start until I was 13.

They make pads to fit pretty much anyone. She’s too young for tampons

I would buy her pads. In my opinion too young for a tampon especially she dont know how heavy she will be and how often she will need to change

What do you mean ‘products that small’ she would use the same size everyone else uses. I started mine around that age . I used pads , all you can really do is talk to her about it and help her gain an understanding about It. Because all women go thru it.

I would recommend pads, heat pack, chemist grade pain relief for periods. Chocolate and a big cuddle. Everything will be ok.

Several companies makes teen and preteen products. They’re smaller. I would start with pads. Extra undies in her bookbag things like that.

I was 9 u can buy always pads there small and panty liners wen starting at her age.make sure u tell her is all ok and talk with her

Always makes sizes 1 and up. I want to say U by kotex makes teen sizes. The best thing I can think of is pads, dark chocolate, midol, and lots of talking and just show her you are there for her anytime and answer all questions. My mom didn’t have the talk, I found out everything from school and like you didn’t start until I was 12
