I am interested in helping my 13yo dd switch to cloth pads but I don't know anything about them. I use a cup myself, and when my dd started her period I wanted everything to be as easy as possible so we have just used disposable pads for over a year. Our wastebasket gets stuffed with so much trash!
I wish we had started with cloth from the very beginning. Since then she hasn't been very interested when I suggested we try it but she shrugged it off. But I'd like to ask her to give it a try again and be ready to get everything she needs to be sure it will work for her. Does anyone make them especially for girls? Are they as reliable as disposables?
Also, I am trying to picture how my careless 13yo would do at carrying a little "wetbag" and having to remember to take care of it at home. Is that what we need? It seems overwhelming! How can we set this up so she will feel comfortable and find it easy to keep everything tidy and fresh? Any and all BTDT advice is welcome.
