Teens, Play On with Playtex Sports & WIN Big! Moms, Survive Their First Period & Beyond! #PlayOnCA


Play On with Playtex Sports.

I have a tween that is an unstoppable force. She is a budding track star, basketball fiend and soccer lover. That means she is always on the move. When the time comes, I know she will not let her period slow her down and she will play on no matter what!





Being a mom of 2 girls, this is a subject that often crosses my mind. I want them to be educated, prepared so that they don’t run into embarrassing moments for lack of not knowing.

Luckily Playtex® Sport® has launched a NEW product that offers girls the ability to try different products all in the convenience of one box. Perfect for those just getting their periods and those that are looking for a little more variety.


Sport Combo.

For those girls that are just starting their periods, I think the liner will work just fine until their flow increases. I love the fact that you get more than one product in a box! That’s already a huge plus for me. The pads are much more absorbent than the liners and I showed Gabs all of the options she has. The combo pack comes with pads and tampons.


“The Talk” Made Easy.

The older that Gabs gets, the more that we discuss body changes and what being a girl is all about. When she eventually grew curious when she saw my feminine products, she wanted to know why I used them and what the purpose was. She was in for a surprise but, since she was really little I didn’t go into much detail.

Now that she has grown up and is getting closer to the age I was when I got my period, I thought it’d be the perfect time to let her in on all the details and leave room for discussion if she had any questions.

I showed her the variety of products that she will use, explained to her that her period is the shedding of the uterine wall and all that jazz. Many giggles ensued with the use of V-word and she was satisfied with the answers and kinda grossed out all at once. Which is understandable! 


Period Survival Kit.

This kit is not sold in stores but, you can definitely make your own and add more things that your teen or tween will like. I think this kit is perfect for all the growing pains that periods bring. Why not make it the most comfortable you can for them?

Kit Includes:
  • Playtex® Sport® Liners
  • Playtex® Sport® Sports Combo
  • Playtex® Sport® Pads
  • GL Magazine
  • iTunes Gift Card
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Nail Polish
  • Lip Butter
  • Magic Bag
  • Super Soft Tee


Keep Moving!

I know that when the time comes, she will not let anything slow her down. Playtex® Sport® are products that will keep up with her. From tween to teen and eventually a young lady. I am glad she will be prepared and so am I!
