My friend's asked me to ask if anyone has 10/11 yos who have started their periods - what sanitary pads do they use? She's been looking for something for her dd who is just starting, but is small and skinny and everything seems far too big and bulky and uncomfortable.
Any advice? Can't see any brands at all on boots or superdrug websites.

Boots sell some specifically aimed at teens called "Ultra teen". They are slightly smaller than adult ones. Here is a link
