Growing up I definitely had my fair share of embarrassing moments. One embarrassing moment, or moments rather, was the fact that I wet the bed. It’s not a subject that most people want to talk about but it’s a reality for many, many kids. As I grew up and became a mom of my own, I was sad to see that my kids would experience the same nighttime wetting issues as I did. But thankfully since I had gone through it myself, I sympathized with my kids and helped them to know that this wasn’t something they could control and it certainly wasn’t anything to be embarrassed about.
Bedwetting is a common occurrence. In fact 1 out of every 6 4-12 year old, wets the bed. There are things that you can do to help prevent bedwetting or make it a little bit easier on both kids and parents. From experience, here are 5 tips to prevent bedwetting that have helped our family and hopefully will help your’s too.
5 Tips To Prevent Bedwetting
- Limit the amount of fluids your child has at night. Certainly let your child have water if they are thirsty but limit this to small amounts. More water means more accidents.
- Wear “Nighttime underwear”. This is what we call our Disposable GoodNites® Bedtime Pants. GoodNites® is the #1 Nighttime Protection Brand. They offer 5 layer protection and are more absorbent vs the leading training pant. And because all kids are shaped differently these GoodNites® Bedtime Pants are made with super stretchy sides.
- Make sure your child is having consistent bowl movements. This is a biggie! If your child is constipated it may push on the bladder making them have more accidents especially at night when they are more relaxed. If your child is having trouble with constipation be sure to talk with your pediatrician.
- Use the restroom right before bed and then once again in the middle of the night. This tip really helped my kids. I know that it is hard to get them up in the middle of their sleep but it really helps them to stay dry longer. Most of the time my kids would walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night (with my help) and then go right back to sleep not remembering a thing.
- Be patient. Bedwetting is common and sometimes not matter how much you try to prevent it, bedwetting is still going to happen. I know as a parent it can be frustrating having to wash the sheets every night but this is one of the main reasons I recommend GoodNites® Bedtime Pants. They look and feel like real underwear but they offer protection where boys or girls need it most
