Bedwetting plagues many children, yet, until my family experienced it I had no idea that 1 in 6 kids age 4-12 wet the bed once or more per week after potty training ends.
I rely on GoodNites to help keep my children’s pajamas and beds dry until they outgrow bedwetting.
Whether your child wets the bed frequently or rarely, the prospect of spending the night away from home can cause anxiety and fear. Today I’m sharing strategies that help my kids feel confident when sleeping away from home.
Make sure your child knows bedwetting is common and normal. It’s not something that they can control, but they will most likely out grow it. Remind your child that it’s just that sometimes her bladder doesn’t wake her brain in time to use the bathroom.
Do you know an adult who once dealt with bedwetting? How about an older friend or cousin. Sometimes knowing she isn’t the only one dealing with bedwetting can go a long way towards making a child feel better about bedwetting.
One of my child’s biggest worries is that someone will see her disposable bedwetting pants in the suitcase, or on the way to the bathroom to change into jammies. Creating a pouch to carry to the bathroom with a pair of bedwetting pants and a pair of jammies is a great way to make bedwetting more discrete for older children at bedtime. No more trying to make sure the GoodNites are tucked between a jammie shirt and pants, and no fear of dropping a pair of GoodNites on the way to the bathroom in front of friends. Plus this pouch is COOL! Keep reading to learn how to personalize an overnight pouch later in this post.
Make a plan for what to do if bedwetting happens away from home, so your child feels prepared. You can pack a plastic bag in her suitcase, so she can discretely pack away wet pajamas. Pack extra pajamas, so she can change without making a big fuss about it
Discretely talk to the adult at the overnight about ways to help your child with bedwetting, such as sending your child to the bathroom one more time late at night.
These tips should help your child feel more confident sleeping away from home in spite of bedwetting. Now, let me show you how to personalize a pouch so your child can discretely carry GoodNites and pajamas to the bathroom.
What you need:
- a large cosmetic pouch
