Feminine product for tiny 13 year old advice needed!

I stopped using pads about 6 months after I started my period, so I have no clue about them. What brands are good for tiny girls? She got her first period at her grandma's house last night, and the ones grandma ran out and bought her are way too big. She is 5"2', 85lbs, with tiny bone structure. Still wears a kids size 10 to 12.

I had some Kotex U samples that are working better, just looking for more options.

I'd just buy her a few different kind of pads and give them all to her. I'd also get her some small tampons. I got my girls the slim kind and some other kind of teen tampon.

I should have thought to put this in the OP, sorry! Tampons are out of the question at the moment, she has a labial adhesion that didn't correct itself at puberty like the doctors assured us it would. Ironic thing is we saw a gyn to see about treatment because I was afraid this would happen, and I JUST picked up the estrogen cream yesterday after fighting with insurance to cover it.

oh no, sorry to hear that! I hope she can get the problem fixed without too much trouble...poor kid. Tampons were a necessity for my girls because of the sports they did....but obviously if she can't use them now, the pads will have to do. I'd get different sizes, and I'd get her the ultra thin kind.

I know this doesn't help immediately, but all the major brands will send out nice sized sample kits if you request one. I did that to figure out what brand I wanted to go with, and to try out new products without committing to a whole box.

ETA: Idk if they make an extra small size, but I always preferred Always Ultra Thin bc they really were ultra thin and comfortable.

I hated always. I just found them too plasticky, I prefer kotex or some other brand with cotton instead of plastic on the surface.

I just looked up kotex. There is something called a tween pad. I don't have any personal experience with them, but maybe they would work


U by Kotex Tween* Pads
Introducing new pads with heavy flow absorbency in a smaller size than our regular pads, for younger girls. U by Kotex Tween* pads come in vibrant colors and patterns, have a special cover to ensure they stay dry, plus an absorbent core to lock fluid away and help prevent leaks.

DD spots all the time since she is on blood thinners and these Tween pads are what she uses. I would highly recommend them.

Also, the Infinity pads are good - they're super thin but very absorbent. And they're "regular" size is pretty small...at least compared to a regular, thicker pad.
