Being a parent is an ever-changing experience and preparing for each change is something I don’t like to do. For me, I don’t like the thought of my kids growing up and seeing their changes. It reminds me that I have to face the fact they are growing up. With that comes conversations about their body changes and I’ve starting the process already. My daughter is only nine and I don’t think she’ll actually have her first period until she is 12, but kids are having them earlier and earlier and I don’t want her to be surprised. But at her age she’s more like, mom that’s enough we can talk about this later. I don’t remember my mom talking to me about it, which I think is one of the reasons why I want her to know what’s going on with her body.
Right now we home school, which means I’m responsible for all of the “sex ed” which I remember having in fourth or fifth grade. In my day and age, it was really just a video about entering puberty. I have no idea what it’s like now. All I do know is it’s the time for her body to start changing and how to be prepared. One way I told her was that when she goes back to school. if she doesn’t have any pads with her, go to the gym and ask the gym teacher or go to the nurse and ask for something there. I had an accident in school once and there was blood all over my skirt. All I knew to do was wrap my sweatshirt around me and I was so embarrassed and worried that everyone would see what happened to me. I never want that to happen to her.
We’re working with Always and are happy to share with you guys how Always Infinity FlexFoam is a great choice in pads for girls to have on hand. Always is my brand and has been for many years. I love how slim they are and how well they work. The Always Infinity pads are made with a super absorbent material called FlexFoam™ that can absorb 10x its weight, Always Infinity offers amazing protection like never before. FlexFoam™ is an innovative foam material, 20 years in the making, which absorbs 10 times its weight, yet feels like nothing. This allows for more flexibility and more comfort while in use. While other pads are made of cotton fluff, Always Infinity gives women remarkable protection in an incredibly resilient pad that is 3 millimeters thin (approximately as thin as a nail file). This advanced technology draws fluid away from the skin and distributes it to the bottom layer of the pad that provides women with a dry fit that molds to the body. Another way Always Infinity gives women more comfort: the pad provides a 3-D body fit for maximum comfort, designed to mold into each woman’s unique shape without bunching. Finally, the pad’s form fitting channels make the pad flexible and more comfortable.
