4 Tips to Get Beyond Bed-Wetting from a mom of three-boys. The last tip is a must-read!
Nighttime bed-wetting. Peeing in your pants in general. Not areas of focus on my blog. Not because they aren’t super hot parenting topics (trust me, every parent reads up on potty training at some point), but mostly because I don’t want my kids to hate me when they grow up. However, sometimes I have a few good tips that require sharing.
I did it when I discovered the Secret to Potty Training. If you missed it, hop on over for a quick little read. Totally worth it. And I’m doing it again. I figured out how to put an end to the problem of nighttime bed-wetting, and I want you to know about it.
At first we tried to just ignore the problem and put Will in disposable training pants. #Notsomuch. Will is adamant that he needs to be a big boy just like the brother he shares a room with. So…
We did all of the obvious things, and some of them helped.
We limit liquids at night. No more water bottles by the bedside. No more chugging a glass of water after brushing teeth. It’s a rule, and we’re strict about it.
We’ve developed a routine. Pajamas, brush teeth, go to the bathroom, story time. In that order. Every night.
We put a nightlight in the boys room. May as well make the bathroom easy to find in the dark. Plus, I keep hearing nightmares from other parents about kids peeing in the closet because they thought it was the bathroom. No thanks. We already get enough of that from the dog.
Sure, they helped. But at least twice a week we were changing sheets in the morning. Sweetly enough, the little guy was changing himself in the middle of the night and simply sleeping on the floor if he wet himself. But even just doing the laundry that often was getting to be a pain.
Then I discovered GoodNites TruFit. I picked up a starter pack at CVS, and we’re now using them at night. At least until he’s got a week of dry undies.
We’re still incorporating all of our other Night-time Best Practices, but now no more wet sheets plus, he gets to wear big boy underwear. #Colormeimpressed.
The GoodNites TruFit starter pack comes with two pair of cotton underwear. Insert an absorption pad into the underwear and nighttime bed-wetting becomes no big deal. When he does have a night time accident, we simply throw out the wet absorption pad and wash the underwear. Then it’s ready for another use.
