Best Maxi Pad~!!! ?

Silly question -
but my daughter & I struggle over this all the time~

With a zillion kinds on the market - WHICH do most teens think are the best?

and my dd has HEAVY ones - ALWAYS seems to mess up her undies & sheets!

My daughter hates WINGS --- too labor intensive!!!

I prefer the kind that are 1 step - pad directly attached to the outer plastic -- no extra strip to peel off!

Votes? Recs?

Infinity by Always Overnight pads -- they DO have wings but wings are very different than those on many others.


How long has she had her period?

I hate wings myself because I think they chafe, but if you have a heavy period, you really don't have a choice but to wear them (with a tampon for extra protection if needed)

May have to try that Kotex ---- have hardly EVER worn that brand...usually only Stayfree or Always.

I agree - Playtex is one o the best tampies.

Thanks for your thoughts -
Yeah - it cracks me up to see THONG pads!!!! WHAT BUSINESS DOES ANYONE HAVE W/WEARING A THONG DURING A PERIOD!!!

This might sound odd but dd wears Depends to bed during her period. She had a terrible time with pads leaking but has found the Depends work really well.
