We are very open about it in our home. When Alex was 3, she walked in on me changing a tampon and was very concerned that I was going to die. We had "the talk" in 3yo terms. The next week, she went to preschool, used the teachers' bathroom, found tampons and came out holding the box over her head yelling "MY MOMMY USES THESE!!!"

She's very comfortable with the changes she's having but she's still confused. I bought her the book "Care and Keeping of You" by American Girl. Its her bible.. I kid you not. That child reads that book non-stop. I'm a nurse but there are some things that she just isn't comfortable saying to me and that book tells her its okay to tell me cuz I'm a girl too.

I really recommend that book, Kitt. We got it at Meijer for like $8. No matter how open you are with your daughter, she's still going to have questions that she's not comfortable asking and the answers to those questions are in that book.

I bought my dd the same book (I got it at Wal_mart for around $6) and she loves it too. It shows them a lot of things. There is even a place that shows them how to put in a tampon. I didn't know how to do that until I read the package.

Anytime she has a question she asks me. As hard as it is I would much rather talk to her about it and her have info and not have her start the changes and freak out cuz she knew nothing.

I couldn't use a tampon until after I gave birth. You should check out that book because it gives them reasons for why their body changes. I think it explains it better than me just saying "because that is a part of puberty"
