Bed-wetting

Bed-wetting is very common in young children, and I am not afraid to admit I used to wet the bed too as a young child, as I would be often be too scared to go to the toilet on my own.

Now my son in experiencing the same, so I will go with him to help avoid the bed from getting wet.

Be patient with your child and remember it is just a phase that they will grow out of. If you feel there may be more of a problem to their bed-wetting then do seek medical support, as going from wearing nappies to not, can be a massive transition for your child especially at night time.

It has started to become less and less. There are bed mats you can buy to put on their bed, underneath their sheet to protect their mattress from getting wet. For us they have worked massively.

The ones we buy are from ASDA Little Angels, and are really good value for money.

Make sure you have spare bedding so you can easily change this over if wet. It may mean do a lot more washing of your bedding and bed clothes, but stick with it as now a few nights Henry, our son, hasn’t wet the bed at all, so do be persistent, and try the dream wee, so getting them up whilst a sleep and sitting them on a potty or toilet if not too far, and take them straight back to bed once they are done.

This has worked a treat, and try avoiding drinks an hour before bed time, but make sure they stay hydrated through out the daytime instead.

I hope you found this useful and if you have any questions then feel free to ask. You can comment below or fill out the form below, and remember to follow me on WordPress.com if you would like to read more of my blogs to come.

Many thanks for reading,
