SOMETHING TO CARRY EVERYTHING
To DIY a period to-go kit, start out with a cute bag, like this one.
As much as we can help them feel like it’s no big deal, teens and tweens are still wondering…
Where can I hide my pads at school?
I LOVE this reader suggestion to use a pencil case made for binders to keep it less obvious and always with you.
THE RIGHT FEMININE PROTECTION PRODUCT FOR YOUR TEEN
Add pantiliners, tampons, and pads…my daughter likes these pads for tween girls.
It’s everything a girl could want in a self-care box, delivered to your door. And it’s customizable.
You can purchase items individually like face wash deodorant, PMS oil, blemish treatment and 100% organic pads and tampons.
But with the build your own box feature starting with a low entry price point, you can design your shipment.
You start off by choosing how many pads and or tampons you need each month.
From there you can add the self-care bundle that includes the face wash, the deodorant, and the blemish treatment.
Additional add-ons include the PMS bundle, the treat yourself bundle and a surprise of something new. Each of these add-ons can be monthly or quarterly.
Blume features products that aren’t a threat to your body or the environment.
In an industry where brands aren’t required to disclose their product’s ingredients, we’ll tell you the truth about ours.
Their tampons & pads are 100% organic cotton, “giving you inner peace for your inner lining.”
A pain reliever for those first day cramps and headaches is a must.
But how does your teen deal with cramps and headaches when they aren’t allowed to get meds without the nurse?
What can you do when you have leaks at school?
Be prepared because chances are period leaks will happen.
Whether you miscalculated your period start date, have an irregular period which is common especially for tweens and teens, or you just had a leak, don’t panic.
Unfortunately, it happens to all women regardless of age so just realize it’s something to take in stride and be ready just in case.
A CHANGE OF CLOTHES FOR EMERGENCY MISHAPS
A fresh pair of panties and a baggie for bringing home the stained pair or a washable wet bag like the kind you put wet bathing suits in.
How about these for avoiding those leaks in the first place.
CLEAN UP SUPPLIES
No kit is complete without a quick spot remover in case it goes onto pants.
Or how about hydrogen peroxide in a travel-sized spray bottle.
Be sure to offer clear instructions on this one, LOL.
Having flashbacks to my favorite jeans vs. bleach incident of 1984. Then again, we were just entering the acid wash faze, so with a little more creative work I was able to still be able to wear them.
Some of my readers suggested I add feminine wipes to this list. And while I agree with the idea, in theory, some things are better left untouched.
And for many women, me included, using any type of wipes causes discomfort. Even if they are designed for women or fragrance-free, my body says “no way”.
A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR SOOTHING THE BEAST
Say what you will about cliches and stereotypes but they aren’t called raging hormones for nothing.
A piece of chocolate, because, who doesn’t feel better after chocolate. 🍫 Maybe it’s salty that satisfies. Maybe it’s both.
And a lip gloss because feeling pretty can’t hurt. 💋
So much more comes along with dealing with periods and tween/teen issues.
