Overnight pads?

Customer review by Bewildered mom

by Bewildered mom

My daughter is 9 and a half and just got her period I got the tween pads for her and they work just fine but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do for her at night, regular pads are much too big for her and I'm doing laundry twice a day. Do you make overnight tween ones? She's so young what can I do to make her more comfortable and less leaky??

Comment from UBK Team - 7/17/2016

Thanks for the review and the inquiry. Unfortunately we currently do not have an overnight tween pad available. To be clear, the absorbency of the material inside the tween pad is greater than a regular pad to help manage unexpected flow for Tweens, who might be just starting their periods and not have regular cycles yet. If you haven't already tried using these pads for overnight, you may want to do so as they may fit your daughter's needs. Otherwise, the only option would be to use a regular overnight pad for now.

These pads are great! But could you maybe make a tween tampon? I am 14 and have had my period for a year now but still can never fill a regular.

These pads work really well for me, since I'm 13 and have a heavier flow, but the colors. They're very bright, and hard to conceal with toilet paper. I lI've with three males, and it's SUPER awkward when they find out I'm on my period. 4/5 stars.

I bought these because I am not a large woman that needs a pad long to enough to reach my finger tips to my elbow. This is the perfect size. It's extremely comfortable and have never had any accidents with them. I will buy these forever.

A Little Childish, But A Good Product

Customer review by TeenTitanCosplayer

4.0 stars 9/9/2014 by TeenTitanCosplayer
by TeenTitanCosplayer

I didn't feel confident, but I didn't feel that way in any of the brands or pads I tried from any company. The designs are a cute touch for the younger demographic, kids who start younger, but for me (13) it seemed a little childish as in 'it's not a color-by-number'. I wish it were a little more discreet in packaging, not in bright colors but that's not a thing with anything. Did like the advice and stuff on the pad and the packaging. I use it for overnight, as I am petite and with a light-ish flow. I switch between these and just a simple Dollar Store brand on days that are heavier rather than light. I like these, though they bunch a little when you first put them on. They were really good for a convention I went to in full cosplay, (Raven from Teen Titans), especially since that costume had me in tights and a dancer's leotard and it was good to have something thicker than I normally would wear on a light day because I knew I had a good chance of not leaking.

I purchased these for my 10 year old daughter who had her first experience today, and I was really impressed with the price and the design of them and that Kotex thought to make something for the size of our smaller and younger girls who are starting there periods. My daughter is super impressed with design and comfort, keep in mind this is her first experience wearing a pad and she said she feels good to move around and still play like usual. Overall we will DEFINITELY be recommending these to our tween friends and moms, I love love love that Kotex has made this line. Super cute, comfortable, my daughter is able to wear with confidence and affordable. I do have to say the cute design of the package is a great idea for girls not quite use to having to carry such items, in case of falling out of bags and purses not near as obvious what they are. WAY TO GO KOTEX!!! Would love to know if I can order the cute little "necessities bag" that is showed in the pamphlet.

Quantity is too few

Why do these only come in 16 count. Obviously, a tween with a heavier flow needing a smaller pads will use more than 16 pads during a cycle. I need to buy 3 boxes at a time. Please make a value size package of these pads. Thank you.

Comment from - 6/6/2016

Thanks for reaching out to us! You can purchase 2 packs of 16-count pads on Amazon. However, if you have a heavier flow, you might want to try a different pad. Have you tried our U by Kotex CleanWear Ultra Thin Heavy Flow Pads with Wings? They are specifically designed for heavy flow. You can view more information, or request a free sample, off of our website here: Thank you!

While Comfortable and super quick absorbing these we're terrible to use! Now they are to small so if your period is unpredictable and you bleed in the front or back these are a no go for you! unless your brain precisely knows where to bleed exactly in the middle, I DO NOT THINK THAT THESE WOULD BE GOOD FOR TWEENS.....Now They we're super soft and absolutely lovely, the designs are pretty cute. But it's like they just thought "tweens are small, so give em a small pad" Now Baby Girl, they focused more on the design rather than the pad itself, and they are overly expensive given the quantity of them. I recommend that next time you see these turn your head and move along. Dear Kotex, Give Tweens more pad less design, Less price, Seriously 5 dollars for 16 pads! Are you kidding me! When my little Sister started out she went through 30 in a week and those were 2 dollars. She had a really heavy flow. That was when she started out. You need to focus on more of the bleeding, sure add some design but the thing that must be focused on is LENGTH and COMFORT.

Comment from - 11/29/2015

We appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us. We apologize for the experience that you had, and we would like to help. The Tween Pads are designed smaller to fit the smaller bodies of tweens. If they are too small, we recommend trying the U by Kotex Cleanwear Pads, which are larger than the Tween Pads. You can view more information about them on our website here: We hope that this information helps. Thank you.

Ok, so no I am not a "tween" but I am a very petite lady, most pads do not fit me. I received a coupon in the mail for these and thought I would give them a shot. I have used other brands in the past and I am sorry to say but I will return to the previous brand once I finish this package. These are the things that I did not care for: first, yes the packaging and prints were fun but there was no way to "reseal" the package when I had to change pads, I like to try to be neat as well as most often the package ripped as I opened it. Second the thickness was significantly more than what I am used to, I could feel the pad chafing which brings me to my next point the CleanWear cover, the cover felt rough to me and my flow sat on top not soaking in for a less than dry feeling. Yes the sizing is much more comfortable than my old brand but with the other things I know I can handle it being a little big. Bottom line, looks fun and perfect size to fit my body but to bulky, messy and rough against my skin to use on a regular basis.

So my mom got these for me before I got my period and we just kept them in the bathroom. I had seen the colors and thought they looked so cool. When I finally got my first period (a year ago) I used these and I love them. I have tried almost every pad they sell at Walgreens and I love these so much. I'm actually wearing one right now. The only thing I would change is quieter packaging. I also think U by Kotex should make tween tampons. I only use U by Kotex now. I mostly use there Click regular tampons. I can never completely fill them. Kotex please make tween tampons! And I will completely recommend this product to anyone. It's amazing other than the loud wrapper.

Good for daytime wear

Customer review by Gemgirl

These pads are quite good daytime wear, they aren't too bulky for a pad designed for heavy flow, have a fairly comfortable fit, stay pretty dry without leaking. However, they don't protect the back enough for nighttime wear. The pad just isn't long enough for me around the back. I'd appreciate some recommendations for a better pad for nighttime wear. Thank you!

Comment from - 4/22/2016

We're happy to provide a recommendation for you! You're a gem for letting us know you like U by Kotex Tween Pads during the day! But we do want to help keep you feeling protected at night. You might want to give U by Kotex AllNighter Ultra Thin Pads. They are super thin and provide super coverage. You can find out more about them and compare them to our other U by Kotex products at Have an awesome day!

I am not a tween, but I have a very small frame & bought these at a friend's recommendation. They fit my body well, and I love the colours! I had never used liners before, but these are perfect for my lighter days. Thank you!!

Awesome! Liners are a great option for the beginning or end of Aunt Flo's visit. Thanks for taking a chance with our liners, and for taking a moment of your day to share your experience.

Still too wide

Customer review by Beebs

1.0 stars 2/18/2016 by Beebs
by Beebs

I have spent almost my whole life searching for a narrow pad because I can't use tampons for medical reasons and panty liners are too thin (regular pads are so wide and long... they bunch up or fold over between my thighs because they are much wider than my actual panties, creep up my bum crack, cause chafing, and I end up extremely uncomfortable and waddling around like a duck). While the tween pads are narrower than a typical pad, they are still WAY TOO WIDE. I am in my thirties, average weight, average height, so there must be other ladies who have this problem. Kotex, could you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make a pad that has the same width and length as your awesome panty lines, but just thicker and/or more absorbant? Thanks!!

Comment from - 2/18/2016

We'd be glad to help you find a pad that works for you! Have you tried our Lightdays Absorbent Liners? They are about an inch shorter and more narrow than our Tween pads, while still offering more absorbency than our Lightdays Regular Liners.

Okay so I am going to tell you my story of when i got my period. So basically I was at school and I was in the bathroom, then I looked down. Usually I would see nothing , but not this time. It was a big ugly stain. Can you guess what it was? No, okay, MY PERIOD!! So I was having so many emotions, like happiness,sadness,confusion,panic. So when I got home I went in the bathroom to check , there was an even BIGGER mess so I told my mom and she sounded concerned, and happy. When my dad got home he had bought me pads and liners (u by kotex tween pad and liner combo pack) IDK y he chose U by kotex, but I love him for doing it . After a few days I was ok,but mostly because I had U by kotex tween pads. Since then I have never had one leak in my pants. They are also coumfy and i have never had a time where they didnt work or stay. I always feel confident and protected while wearing these! THANK U, U by kotex tween!!
