Bedwetting isn't a problem our family has been exempt from. After potty training 3 kids, we've had our share of middle of the night bedding changes. It's a hard transition for kids (and parents) especially during the first few weeks.
For our youngest daughter who just turned four, we've mastered the day time transition to underwear but nighttime has been a little more difficult. As our last child transitioning to big girl underwear, we've been working on getting her 100% potty trained with tips and experiences from our older children.
Tips for Avoiding Bedwetting
- Establish a Liquid-Free Bedtime Routine – We helped each of our kids avoid bedwetting by reducing water at night. No more cups of water in the 2 hours before bedtime. Every night they put on their pajamas, brush their teeth and use the restroom. After storytime, it's one more trip to the restroom.
- Make the Bathroom Accessable – Even with less water at nightime, your child may still need a middle of the night potty break. Waking up alone at night can be scary! Make the bathroom easy to find and less scary with nightlights creating a path to bathroom.
- Start with Support – Bedwetting is embarrassing and in the beginning can be hard to control. Offer support for little ones with GoodNites. These underwear offer nighttime protection from wetting the bed while being discreet, just like real underwear.
For the past few weeks we've been using the GoodNite Underwear at night and our daughter absolutely loves them. I can tell she feels more confident in the morning when she's gone a whole night without wetting. Miss Emma also loves the girly prints on them!
As a parent, I really love the design of GoodNites. They're thin, but absorbant with great coverage so there's no leakage on the bed sheets. They have an underwear-like fit and feel so Emma can pull them up and down easily for middle of the night potty breaks.
