I love the idea! So nice to make the transition that can be so tough a little more gentle!
I would include a hot pad (hot water bottle or rice bag or such) as I got terrible cramps right from day one. Maybe some soothing tea or eo to go along?
I agree with pp that although you may prefer she used the cloth pads she may find it embarassing or uncomfortable to be doing something so different from most of her friends. Maybe let her try a couple different things - cloth at home, unbleached disposable at school, sea sponges, etc. It took all of us awhile to find what worked best for each of us & I know I went through a fair bit of trial & error first.
