Small or light: There are small tampons labeled as small, light, or beginners tampons. They will be more narrow and better for first tampon use.

Tampon: When you first start using tampons you may find it easier to insert a “slim” tampon with a smooth plastic applicator that has a rounded tip. Recommend that you avoid super tampons with cardboard applicators when you first start. There are may u tube videos that provide instruction on proper tampon insertion. Change tampons roughly every 4 to 6 hours. Moms can usually give advice about tampon use.
