The Dot Girl's First Period Kit Review and Giveaway


THE REVIEW:

Do you remember the first time you got your period? I do. I knew what it was and it still freaked me out. And I hated using those huge pads that were my moms.

Recently in my web travels, I came across Dot Girl First Period Products. Dot Girl First Period Products was founded by Kathy Pinkus and her sister Terri Goodwin. They created the kit after many conversations reminiscing about how unprepared they were when they first started menstruating. Even though they had a loving and supportive mother, it was still a topic that was difficult to talk about.



One of my favorite items that is available for purchase is The Dot Girl's First Period Kits. This is something that I wish was around when I was younger and am so glad that it is around now.

The kit includes The Dot Girl's First Period Guide, which contains answers to common questions girls might have about their period; The Dot Girl's First Period Calendar, to help girl's track their period over a year; Scensibles Disposable bags; a Kotex product brochure; a coupon for free Kotex product; hand wipes, a reusable Dot Girl heating pad for cramps and samples of Kotex products.



Terri and Kathy also write articles under the "Dot Girl Moms" name for the Kotex website.

I like both the books, Before she gets her period and the Sex book.
Both would be very helpful. My son has custody of his daughter and these would help him when the time comes.

Amy said...

I love that period kit! What a wonderful idea.

Also- the seamless bra for girls looks like it would be a great product for a young girl just starting to wear bras. I've bookmarked the site for future use with my 11 year old.

Thank goodness for this blog! I've been trying to figure something out for my niece to explain the process, unfortunately, her mother is not around and my brother... well lets just say this makes him uncomfortable! I am going to order the Period. A girls guide so we can walk through it. This is a great site, thanks!

My 10 year old god-daughter lost her mother (my best friend) several years ago to breast cancer. Her father is wonderful - but there are certain things a little girls needs a mommy (or mommy-type figure) to talk about. Dot Girl's 1st Period Kit sounds perfect (great idea too - wish it was around when I was "coming of age!")

I also love the Seamless Pullover Day Bra - so much that I want one for myself too! Thanks for the great giveaway and for this wonderful "product/service."
