Light Bladder Leakage is a problem affecting so many women; 1 in 3 women to be exact,. After being pregnant twice, my bladder isn’t as solid as it used to be. Soon after giving birth to Ryan, I finally visited my local pharmacy and picked up Poise pads. What a difference the right pad makes.
The Poise® Thin-Shape pads absorb leaks well and keep you dry, unlike with maxi pads. After trying them out, I learned quickly why the two products shouldn’t be used interchangeably.
Since those period pads are now useless, I had to find something new to do with them. While they aren’t a very practical solution for LBL, maxi pads make excellent makeshift kneepads.
We are now entering the season of outdoor activities like skating, bicycling, and good old fashioned hide and seek. With all of the fun to be had, there are bound to be some scraped knees around here, so why not help protect those little elbows and knees? And yes, we own actual kneepads; I’m having a little fun with this campaign. ;)
Emma got a kick out of my idea, but heck, these things aren’t too shabby. They work pretty darn well when you’re in a pinch or want some extra protection. Against cuts and bruises that is. Just use the maxi pad as a wrap and secure with an elastic band, and vióla!
I think I may just do this myself while cleaning out my gardening bed.
Did you put pads on your childs kneecaps!! I am crying laughing that is hilarious way to recycle them this is a funny campaign indeed!

I got tired of pads very early on, and haven’t looked back, outside of post childbirth.

I feel like I haven’t used a pad in a few years. I have to say that my pads have always treated me very well. I will keep Poise in mind.
