If she's comfortable with it that's fine. But I would be concerned whether or she had an accident and got embarrased about it. But that's for the 2 of you to decided. Goodluck

I used tampons with my first period as we had our school swimming carnival. I was 13 and it's fine as long as she's comfortable with using them.

I used tampons during my first period, I couldn't stand pads. Just buy the smallest ones you can find and let her decide for herself if she's comfortable. If not, move the swimming back until she's off, then she won't miss out.
