Tampon trouble?

I just managed to apply a tampon for the first time.. before I left the bathroom took a couple of steps and found that I couldn't feel it, so I assumed it was in properly.

About ten minutes later I checked that I could still reach the string (I get a little paranoid) and found that the string had started to soak with blood.

I've now noticed that when i sit down I can slightly feel it, when i asked my mother about it she said that I didn't put it in far enough.

I don't want to remove the tampon while it's not completely soaked so i can avoid the pain, will it be okay to keep it in and wear a liner until it's absorbed some blood?

It's not very uncomfortable when I feel it, I know I can put up with it for a couple of hours so comfort is not a problem.

    it can either be is not far enough which is fine just push it with your finger or it can be the angle that you put it in

    Just push it up manually with your finger until it is far enough in.
