Bed wetting is a fairly common condition that a child cannot control or be trained out of, and can be caused by a number of things from drinking too much before bed time, a medical condition, sleeping too soundly at night, even surprisingly – genetics.
According to a GoodNites® brand study, it’s estimated that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from bed wetting or the medical term – nocturnal enuresis.
It can be a difficult feat for both parents and kids, but there are ways that you can help your child with bed wetting.
* Don’t belittle, embarrass, yell, punish, etc. your child for bed wetting. It is quite common and is already embarrassing and uncomfortable enough for your kiddo.
Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that psychologically, children who wet the bed do not want to participate in fun activities, such as sleepovers, because of their fear and embarrassment.
* Make sure the child doesn’t have anything to drink 2 hours before bed time.
* Be sure the child uses the restroom before crawling into bed.
* Use a night light in the bathroom so that the child is comfortable going to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
* Use GoodNites* TRU-FIT*
GoodNites* TRU-FIT* is machine-washable, real underwear with disposable, absorbent inserts that help keep sheets and PJs dry all night and best of all, they are discreet, eliminating any embarrassment at sleepovers!
GoodNites* TRU-FIT* come in boy or girl colors and are real underwear from the outside with a soft ‘plastic’ type covering – but not that crinkling plastic I remember wearing over your underwear when you would bed wet growing up in my time (does that make me old?)
Inside the plastic covering (used to keep the fabric dry) are two little pockets in the front and in the back that hold an absorbent, disposable insert that can just be tossed away in case of bed wetting.
It keeps the underwear dry, the PJs dry, the bed dry and the child happy!
They really are a neat little thing that is sure to allow your child to feel comfortable sleeping at home or at a friend’s without fearing embarrassment of wetting the bed.
