Belle... Great products, very nicely made. I ended up getting some flannel pj's from the local donation thrift store on my military installation where you can go once a week and get two grocery bags of free items and one large carry out free. I got two pair of flannel pj's nicely worn and soft and a pair of flannel pillow cases and a flannel backed water proof crib pad, the kind that does not have plastic the old thick flanel ones and I made some great pads for myself. My daughter who is about to be 13 is not so inclined to give mine a try so I think I will purchase your set for her to try. The more professional sewing job and less "homemade" look to them will hopefully appeal more to her. I have found that the home made pads absorb so much better and are more comforatble. I actually have combined the use of them with the diva cup and only wear the two layer panty liner most of the time. I have now used cloth pads and the diva cup for two cycles and will never never go back. Thanks again!

Your daughter might like something called the diva cup. it is reusable, washes with soap and water. It is sort of like a diaphragm. now the diva cup is a name brand item, but you can find the same thing cheaper at Walgreen's
