Menarche is a menstruator’s very first period. And a first period can start at any time! The Menarche Essentials kit ensures that your child is prepared whenever and wherever their first period arrives.
Getting your very first period while out and about can be a big struggle or source of anxiety for a young child. With a Menarche Essentials kit easily available when they are away from home, your child can be assured that they will be prepared with the essentials necessary to appropriately care for their body at this milestone. No need to improvise with toilet paper or ask a friend for period supplies; they'll be appropriately equipped wherever they are.
The Menarche Essentials kit is a compact and discreet bag your child can keep in a locker, backpack, sports bag, or other convenient place to access when their first period arrives. The Essentials kit includes enough period supplies to get them through the first day of their period:
- 2 organic pads
- 2 organic pantyliners
- 2 freshening wipes
- 1 pain-relief heat patch
- 1 wet bag to transport soiled underwear
- 1 How-To Guide to help them use their period products for the first time
- 1 Period Q&A to provide information about first period basics
When your Menarche Essentials kit arrives, you might take the chance to explore the Period Q&A with them. Make sure they include an extra set of clean underwear (not included) in their kit and help them decide the best place to keep it while they await their first period.
