Because You Never Know!

This post is sponsored by Stayfree. Thank you for supporting SITC!

As women, our bodies are constantly going through changes. We grow, develop and finally settle in to the person we are. But then we have kids, and the body we thought we knew so well changes in ways we never thought imaginable. It is scary! From leaking boobs to bigger feet, our postpartum bodies are uncharted territory and we keep changing as we age, too! Yikes.

I remember thinking how strange it was when I heard my mom and her friends joke about laughing so hard that they peed. They would crack up about it and I thought it was totally gross. I was a teenager, what did I know? It wasn’t until I became a mom that I totally understood. The term for this is Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) and it is for real. Plenty of moms experience Light Bladder Leakage during normal daily activities.

As a working mom of three, I am constantly switching gears and experiencing the gamut of emotions and personalities on a daily basis. I can be hysterically laughing with my kids in the morning, then frantically running to and from school for drop-off or pick-up. On top of this, I have been trying to make time for regular workouts, and I really enjoy cycling classes—it gets my heart rate up and I love the energy! I don’t have time to deal with bladder issues, so I use a secret weapon to keep me dry! Stayfree Ultra Thin pad with All-In-One technology is my savior for occasional leakage situations.

The whole LBL thing can be a little embarrassing (let’s be honest) but it is mostly just uncomfortable. I use Stayfree pads for my regular cycle and recently started using Stayfree Ultra Thin pads with All-In-One technology for my occasional LBL. They are thin enough to forget about, and absorbent enough to prevent light leaks. I don’t even chance it, I just use them if I know I’ll be in workout mode!

My typical day can be unpredictable and since I am running all over the city, I never know what the world will throw at me! Everyone knows I like to be prepared at all times. For any situation, my bag is stocked with sunblock, snacks, smoothie squeezers and now Stayfree Ultra Thin pads because…you never know!

  1. IT’s great to have those on hand. Everyone deals with LBL at some point, it’s such a big issue. I am glad everyone is more open about it now.

    We have given up so many things in exchange for motherhood, but I have no regrets. I am proud of what my body can do – nurture a human life inside of me, not only once but three times! LBL is an issue that used to be taboo to even mention, but I am glad that now we can openly talk about it and exchange views on products that help address the issue.

  3. Yes, it’s a shame when something spoils a walk with children. Do not spoil your days off – the buddhas are always ready for not being pleasant. As your clean apartment to guests.
