Survive the season with U by Kotex

I’m a prepared mama that always places my family’s safety and security above all else.  We live in Florida and are getting prepared for hurricane season. This force of nature is something to be reckoned with and I intend to help my loved ones survive.  No doubt during hurricane season, my “season” will happen so I’m adding U by Kotex® Lightdays Liners and U by Kotex Curves® to our survival kit.

Sounds crazy, but as Floridians we accept the fact that we could have some really bad weather each summer and will need to stockpile emergency items.  It’s never fun to be caught in a storm without the necessary lifesaving items.

Check out what happened during this storm-see how dry you’ll stay?

We’ve been very lucky lately to not experience a dangerous hurricane; like the one we had in 2004 that damaged the floors of our home.  During that time, stores were out of supplies and many were closed due to lack of electricity.  Families that hadn’t prepared were out of water, food and essentials for quite a while.  We were without lights and a/c for several days.

Luckily for me and my family, we stay very familiar with the hurricane guides and recommendations for items to have in the house this time of year.  And since our household has several lovely ladies, a necessity is definitely feminine products such as U by Kotex® Lightdays Liners and U by Kotex Curves®. I don’t want to be caught without them so we create our own #CycleSurvivial kit that is included with our emergency supplies.

Storms can be scary for families, particularly if you have younger kids, so we came up with a fun way to get the kids (and parents) excited about the upcoming storm.  We throw a hurricane party!  Extended family will join us and we play games and have picnics by candlelight.  Even if the big storm never hits, it prepares us all for what could happen and we get comfortable with the process.

As Mom, it’s often my job to keep everyone occupied, comfortable and stress free.  If my period happens to be visiting at the same time, I need the confidence to keep the party moving.  Just like these other Moms that are a Cycle Survival inspiration; I don’t want it to stop me from caring for my family. I need to be able to jump around, act silly, chase the dog and keep that going for hours (yes hours) on end.  I love that U by Kotex® is a brand I can rely on.

I’m thrilled for the monthly reminder of the amazing woman that I am but I don’t need to remind everyone else (if you know what I mean).  PMS is never pretty and I avoid the embarrassing period stories by using U by Kotex® Lightdays Liners.  These panty liners keep me feeling fresh with their CleanWear® cover technology.  And for my heavier days, their products have new 3D Capture Core technology that provides a barrier to stop leaks immediately.  Now, if only I could use these to keep out the hurricane floods!
