You should know that I’m sharing TMI about LBL with you here today as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars and Poise Microliner. As always, all opinions and ideas are entirely my own. #PoisewithSAM
Usually, when I talk about being a mom, it’s with much pride and joy. Most of the time, I really enjoy being a mom. I guess that’s why I have six kids. But sometimes, motherhood isn’t always easy. You see, I have problems. There’s the screaming and fighting (OH.EM.GEE…the fighting) that I deal with on a daily basis. There’s the constant dealing with issues like “I’m hungry” or “I’m bored”, especially during the summer months. And there are those things, those amazingly ridiculous things, that my children did to my body during pregnancy. That’s the ugly side of motherhood and it’s a fact of life. I’m talking about disappearing boobs, belly issues (like, holy crap, where did that extra skin come from?), and piddle problems stemming from light bladder leakage (LBL). But I don’t look like I have those problems, right?
Motherhood is rough, y’all. I want to keep up with my active lifestyle. I want to be able to play with my kids. I want to be able to giggle snort at will. I want to work out, whenever I want to work out. I want to ride bikes. I want to walk on the Seawall. I want to do all of this without fear of peeing in my pants. And I sure as heck don’t want to wear diapers to avoid the inevitable. I deal with life’s little challenges as they come along in any manner I see fit.
When my boobs disappeared after baby #2, I bought new ones. Problem solved.
When my belly sag got the best of me after baby #4, I began a daily workout routine and bought clothes to camouflage the body part I had grown to despise. Problem partially solved, but I’m still working on that.
But when I started piddling in my pants just because I giggle snorted, or waited too long, or exercised, or played too hard, I just did the walk of shame to my bedroom and changed my panties. I’m not talking full-on pee here, I’m talking piddle. Something had to be done! LBL is a common problem among women, especially moms, so there had to be SOMETHING out there to help a mom out that wasn’t a stupid adult diaper. I’m too young for that (really, I am, shush your pie hole).
Enter Poise Microliners to the rescue. No more walks of shame for me this summer. I’m going to have fun in the sun without fear of embarrassment. I’m ready, are you?
This summer, when I head out to sit by the pool and watch the babies splash, go play at the park, go out on a ka-zillion mile bike ride (seriously B, those bike rides do NOT have to be that long), or just head out anywhere for a day of fun, I bring along all of the essentials and I don’t have to worry about a thing!
With enough sun block (and a few shots in my face), some strategically worn clothing, and a Poise Microliner in my panties (or a couple of the tiny, individually wrapped liners in my purse), no one will know I have any problems at all and I can enjoy my summer however I’d like, where ever I’d like. Comfortable and carefree! Wanna know how these super absorbent microliners work?
Well, to start, they’re super thin as you can plainly see so they’re incredibly discreet and comfortable. No one will know it’s there. You might even forget until the LBL monster attacks. But you know what? This little tiny thing can hold a LOT of liquid and still go unnoticed.
Don’t believe me? Proof is in the picture. I decided to SHOW you instead of just tell you so I did a little test. That’s a lot of liquid in that tiny microliner. Wait. Don’t go. That’s NOT pee (seriously, I wouldn’t do that to you, that’s just gross). I did my test with beer to prove my point. It seemed fitting since drinking alcohol (which often makes you giggle snort) is an LBL trigger for many. I poured half a can on this microliner!
And it’s still THAT thin! Six ounces of fluid and still that thin. Amazeballs, right? If you deal with LBL on a daily basis, you’re not alone. One in three women experience light bladder leakage so there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Plus, no one has to know. No more walks of shame, no more embarrassing piddle problems. If my little experiment wasn’t enough to convince you, be sure to get your free sample and try them out yourself.
Enjoy your summer without worry this year. No more piddle problems, no more walks of shame. I’m totally ready for summer, are you?
