I hate when people are so coy and call these items “feminine hygiene products”. Americans can be so Victorian about the weirdest things. Nevermind that there are tons of high school girls out there wearing short shorts that show their butt cheeks and skimpy little tank tops. But let’s not shock anyone by saying tampon. That would be so scandalous!
I don’t want to get too graphic but this is not the week to put off buying your preparedness items. I don’t want to imagine a scenario where I did not have a large supply of these items. Ew.
Think how many tampons and/or pads you’ll need for at least two cycles (3-4 months would be better, just in case). And keep in mind daughters too. Your little nine-year-old may need this stuff earlier than you think.
