Moms of teens

Got a lot on your mind?

This might be the most stressful stage of life for a woman – your kids have entered an incredibly difficult phase (for them and you) and you’re trying to be a role model, your career is probably still in full swing, and you’re starting to worry about funding tertiary education. Not to mention trying to find the time and energy for your own hobbies and interests!

With so much on your mind and plate, let Lil-lets take all the management and hassle out of your period – and your daughter’s. One brand with a full range of formats and absorbencies, that’s available in all local supermarkets and pharmacies – and because you need your sleep more than ever, our trusted protection lets you rest easy without worrying about leakage.

Guiding your daughter into womanhood

This is also when you will be guiding your own daughter through the emotional and complicated process of puberty, including starting her period. lil-lets is here to offer the advice and resources you may need to navigate having those conversations with her, and hopefully remove the stress involved.

One way to help your daughter figure out which product she likes is to write to us for her FREE Teen Kit! She’ll get a range of products to try out at home in her own time. Please remember that you need to send us copies of your daughter’s ID book to claim her kit.

Still concerned about tampons?

It’s possible that you might be averse to tampons for various reasons – however, one thing that shouldn’t stop you from using them is fear. If your tampon is inserted correctly and you change it every 4 to 8 hours, then you shouldn’t even feel it and there’s no chance of discomfort, infection or any other problem. A tampon is the ultimate form of protection because you won’t even know it’s there.

If you are still uncomfortable with them, that isn’t a problem. Lil-lets has both Ultra thin and Maxi thick pads, available in a range of absorbencies, scented and unscented options, both with a cotton-soft topsheet for optimum comfort.
