Too Scared To Sneeze

Moms and women who have LBL, are you too scared to sneeze? Let Poise Liners make more moments in your life matter - and make them less scary!

Real talk: Having kids changes everything. But not just your life. They also change your lifestyle! Prior to having kids, I wouldn't have ever thought twice about sneezing. In fact, I *think* I remember liking the sensation. I mean, is there anything worse than having to sneeze but not being able to?! Sure there is. But not for the sake of this argument, ok? Anywhoo, I actually truly hadn't thought about sneezing this much at ALL before kids. And then I had Henry by c section and still didn't have to think about it. And then I had Otto via VBAC and you know what? I'm now too scared to let out a good sneeze!

This is a hilarious post! So true. Moms, read this!

It doesn't happen every time. It doesn't even happen most of the time. But sometimes, just sometimes, a sneeze comes out of left field. I don't have time to prepare myself for it. And by prepare myself, I mean tighten my kegal muscles. Mamas, I know you know exactly what I'm talking about! Ladies who are planning their families, look what you have to look forward to! This is your future, gals.

So that sneeze comes out of nowhere. And I pee myself a little. More class-ily, it's known as LBL or light bladder leakage. It wont ruin your day, but dang it's super annoying. The super quick fix is to throw on a liner and call it a day. But you know what? Panty liners weren't built for that. Poise liners were. I thought, "a liner is a liner." In fact, real talk version 2.0, it was a nurse at the hospital that told me to stock up on these, and handed me a few. If it hadn't been for her, I don't think I ever would have tried them! Low and behold, a liner is NOT just a liner. These are cotton-y and feel like your undies. Not a liner.

This post is so funny! Every mom can identify with it. Moms, check this out!

When it feels like you're just wearing your undies, you'll wear them everyday. When you're wearing them everyday, you'll be protected for that one-off, random sneeze. When you're protected against that one off, random sneeze you can enjoy your life without having to think about things. Like peeing your pants LBL. You following me? Good.

The best part for moms who are busy (is there a mom who isn't busy? If so, I want to meet her. And learn all her secrets) is that these liners are available at Walmart. So you can throw them in your cart when you're on your weekly shopping trip - no additional stops necessary! Get your diapers for your kid(s), get your liners for yourself, dry bums for all! Now if you live in a state where you can also pick up a bottle of a beverage that starts in a W and ends in an E and sounds a lot like whine, you're really winning the mom game.

Ladies, life is too short to be too scared to sneeze. You're missing out on the little moments that make motherhood worth it! Get yourself some Poise liners, see the difference, and start living life to the fullest again.

  3. LBL sucks. I had it when I was pregnant with EJ. I'm wondering if it's going to continue postpartum. I haven't sneezed yet so I'm still in the dark. :)

  4. Thank goodness for those nurses right? ;-) Filing this one away in the someday need to know. Thank you for being real as always :)

  5. Yep, LBL here too! I had it the worst with my first because of the insanely long labor and almost 4 hrs of pushing...yeah. Wore those suckers for a good 6 months postpartum and now I always wore them when I run too! Love how how you keep it real :)

  6. Definitely did NOT know about this when it came to motherhood... DEFINITELY filing this away much like, Amanda haha

  7. Dying to see this video but it's not working for me! Helllllllp. Luckily I haven't had the leakage sneeze scaring problem since Ginny, but I wouldn't put it past me after a (hopefully) future pregnancy and delivery!
