I'm researching the options before having a shopping discussion with my 11 year old (who hasn't started her period, but I really want to be prepared). Right now, her reaction every time I try to discuss periods or bras is extreme denial. I won't force her to wear a bra, but obviously, you can't really avoid menstruation.
My first memories are cloudy, but I do remember my mother trying to explain how to use an OB tampon in a Kmart bathroom. I'd like to avoid that type of experience with my DD.
I have been using cloth since she was born, so it's really all my DD's know. I realize that disposables are much more common, but I'd like for her to at least TRY cloth.
Any recommendations? Ideas for saving money? I'm not going to make them - and I want her to have something she *wants*.
