Why hide the pads? Plus my recommended feminine hygiene product!
So your daughter has started her period and she is freaked out about bringing pads or tampons to school. Are you afraid of getting a panicked phone call in the middle of the day from the school nurse? I hear ya and I’ve been there too!
Back when I was in college, I used to go clubbing in Los Angeles with my friends. We wanted to wear cute clothes but being on your monthly was always a concern back in the day.
One time my monthly started when I was at the club. I went to the car to get a pad from the glove box. After the night was over, we saw a guy looking in my car window and then jump back. When we got to the car, we figured out why: the glovebox had popped open and bright pink pads had fallen over the seats and floor! Not only did the pads protect me while I was dancing, they functioned as “anti-theft devices for my car”. Go pads!
Here’s the thing – you don’t want your daughter’s pads exploding out of her purse in the middle of class, right?
No need for bulky pink pads anymore, thank goodness! I recommend U by Kotex CleanWear® by U Pads which come in pretty, slim packages, are easier to conceal, and have better technology to allow you to wear whatever clothes you want when you're on your cycle.
Did you know that some schools won't allow girls to bring their purse or backpack into the restroom with them?
That’s why I created this DIY period kit with a secret compartment for discreetly hiding feminine products. Avoid the embarrassment of being caught unprepared when Aunt Flo calls. This can be used as a clutch style planner/purse – there's a spot for money or a gift card, pens, and a notebook plus a secret compartment on the back for holding pads. Your daughter can easily slide the secret compartment open, slip out a pad and put it in her pocket without anyone knowing!
This hidden compartment notebook cover is much easier to make than it looks – you only need very basic sewing skills. Can you a sew a *mostly* straight line?
You can totally make this secret compartment notebook cover!
