Advice From Moms

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Poise, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #cleanandfreshswitch

Since becoming a mom almost a year ago I've learned that moms love to swap stories, both good and bad. I've been given so much advice from other moms that I've found invaluable, and others that I'm grateful that I know, but may have been TMI at the time. I'm not the shy type so hearing intimate pregnancy or birth stories don't gross me out. You never know when the information provided by experienced moms will come in handy.

Some of the better advice I've received was to get a sound machine and black out shades for our son's nursery. These have both helped tremendously in allowing him to sleep through the night and also to prevent disruptions due to noise or light. These were very good purchases and I would suggest them for any new mom or mom-to-be.

Another piece of wisdom that I've learned from moms is that everyone will tell you how they think you should be raising your kids, but ultimately you know what's best for your child or children. Some people don't believe in discipline, some do. Some won't feed their children sweets, others do. It's all depending on the parent and the child.

I also learned from moms of boys that boys are FULL OF ENERGY, and they weren't kidding! My son is not quite walking but crawling everywhere - full speed ahead. He loves to spend time jumping, bouncing, chasing our two cats or our dog, laughing, swinging, climbing the furniture and anything else he can grab ahold of. He is all boy! 

Some of the advice that is helpful for those who are physically having a child is that post pregnancy many women experience light bladder leaks from the body's stress from pregnancy and delivery.  This was one of the TMI stories I heard from other moms, but it's something many people don't talk about. Having adopted my son and not having gone through delivery, I did not have this issue, but I know many moms who did or still do. That's why it's great to know that there are products out there that help with this issue like Poise pads. 

Poise products were created especially for women who deal with light bladder leaks (LBL). Poise pads are different from period pads, offering all-day protection, comfort, and a variety of absorbency options. Poise pads quickly locks away wetness and absorbs odor. Poise allows women to go about their daily routine and activities without feeling worried or embarrassed about LBL. Poise pads are three times drier than the leading period-only liners, so why buy liners for a purpose they weren't intended for when you can get Poise made for LBL.

It's nice to be about to go out on family outings to fun places like Chick-Fil-A for a monster truck event, or for the husband and I to go to a friend's wedding and not have any worries about LBL.

Everyone knows moms are very busy people. They balance home, work, family, chores, errands and much much more. The last thing you want to think about when running around after little ones or running errands is bladder leakage. Poise helps relieve some of these worries, especially during the holidays when there's always more to do than there is time to do it in.

There are 5 different absorbencies available, so head on over to Walgreens and find one that is right for you!
