Create a Period Kit for Your Child’s School Bag With These Essentials

Create a Period Kit for Your Child’s School Bag With These Essentials

As the beginning of another new year of school draws near, it becomes important to ensure our children start off with everything they need to succeed. This includes being prepared for everything, including getting their period for the first time.

Spending so much time at school increases the chances that your child might be away from the familiarity and security of their home when they realise that they’ve started their period. We can make this uncertain time easier on our children by preparing a period kit for them to keep in their school bags just in case they need it.

You can create a simple but discreet period kit for your child with these essential items.

Firstly, you’ll need a cute pencil case or a purpose made bag big enough to hold everything your child might need in a pinch, but discreet enough that it looks like ordinary school stationery.

This Waterproof Bag is ideal to carry a spare pair of period pants when you need to change during the day or to store wet swimmers. Discreetly sized to slide into your handbag, school bag or backpack.

Next, you’ll need to stock it with period supplies.

  • a small packet of wet wipes
  • some small disposable bags
  • a change of underwear
  • a couple of spare pads
  • some ibuprofen if your school allows

You could also bypass the pads and change of underwear completely and purchase some period underwear from Modibodi. They have made all the difference for my young teen when she gets her period at school.

Modibodi have the cutest prints and styles designed to suit children as young as 10, with sizes ranging through to adult.

The Modibodi Teen Hipster Bikini is one of the most-loved teen styles, and the perfect way to start any Modibodi journey.
The Teen Hipster Boyshort is the perfect period protection to wear under uniforms, skirts, dresses, or sports kits and offers full coverage. An everyday staple for those with packed schedules and no time (or desire) to deal with disposables, leaks, or messy sheets.

There are also products that help your teen stay active during their period without fear of any embarrassing leaks.

The Teen Hipster School Short sits on the hip with a low leg cut for a safe, snug fit. Modibodi fits and feels like regular underwear and features their patented 3mm Modifier Technology to absorb your period, while leaving you feeling fresh, dry and helping to control odour.
The Teen Bikini Brief absorbs 1-2 tampons like magic and gives teens extra confidence in the water. Time for a fun-filled swim season with no period leaks, and no worries.
Don’t let leaks keep you from the pool or the beach. The Teen Swimwear Racerback One Piece is perfect worn solo or under competition swimwear for leak-proof lessons, carnivals, beach days, race meets, or pool parties without fear of leaks.

Seeing my child handle her period in these makes me wish that they were available when I was a teen! Gosh, they would have made my life so much easier. I’d never have to worry if anyone could tell that I had started my period and it would have been so much more convenient than trying to change a pad in the school bathrooms. My confidence would have been through the roof in these bad boys!

Pick up a couple of pairs for your child’s period kit and make this transition through puberty as easy as can be.

Modibodi are 100% Australian owned & designed and offer free shipping on orders over $100.
