Mukilteo, WA (www.dotgirlproducts.com) February 1, 2013 – Dot Girl Products™ has provided first period kits to customers for many years and the addition of new features is a natural progression in helping to prepare girls for menstruation. Now, in addition to providing everything a girl needs to be ready for her first period, The Dot Girl First Period Kit® will also include a Period Diary to track periods over the first year and a sturdy neoprene bag to carry feminine hygiene supplies discretely.
“The Dot Girl First Period Kit® is an excellent tool for parents to help explain menstruation to their daughters,” said Kathy Pickus, owner and founder of Dot Girl Products™. “With the addition of the period diary to The Dot Girl Period Answer Book™, parents can now start educating their daughters on how to manage and track their menstrual cycles over a lifetime while using the supply bag to always be prepared.”
The Dot Girl First Period Kit® is stocked with The Dot Girl Period Answer Book™ – a 20-page question and answer booklet covering the basics about menstruation; My Period Diary™ – included with The Dot Girl Period Answer Book™, the diary allows girls to track their period over the first year; The Dot Girl Warm Pad™, a reusable gel heating pad for soothing cramps; five disposal bags; five feminine hygiene pads; and two hand wipes ensuring girls that they’ll be prepared in any situation.
The company has also taken the opportunity to redesign the packaging and supply bag in bright new colors to help girls lessen their anxiety about their first period and instead turn it into a positive experience. Early reviews have been positive with www.coolmompicks.com commenting: “The new and improved Dot Girl First Period Kit® still contains everything it had before that I appreciated, but now comes with a brighter, snazzier pouch, a year-long period diary, and a hook for hanging in the bathroom or in a school locker. It’s also got a larger heating pad and plastic bags (for disposal purposes), along with the other necessities I really liked in the first version.”
The new Dot Girl First Period Kit® offers a complete package designed to help parents start the conversation with their daughters about menstruation. With the addition of My Period Diary™ and the sturdy neoprene bag, Dot Girl Products™ continues to lead the market in providing tools for young girls to become comfortable about their periods.
