You're not alone. There. This answer ought to put to rest any panic or frustration you're experiencing. In fact, bedwetting is so common it happens in up to 15% of 5-year-old children in Canada.
Now that you can think straight, here's all of the important, practical stuff you need to know when considering the best solutions to help your child enjoy a good night's sleep.
"Why can't we just use a diaper or training pants?"
Simple. Daytime training pants are not designed to handle nighttime bedwetting, especially as children grow. Worse, the leaking, bunching and crinkling that ensues can affect your child's self-esteem.
"How do GoodNites® Underwear actually help?"
In addition to helping kids who wet the bed get a sound night's sleep, GoodNites® Underwear help kids maintain confidence until they outgrow bedwetting.
"Is there any latex or lotion in GoodNites® Underwear?"
Nope. They are latex-free and contain no lotions. Gender-specific, cloth-like outer covers look and feel like underwear. Inside there's a discreet absorbent pad that draws wetness in, away from skin. The stretchy sides offer a comfortable, snug fit, preventing leaks all night long.
"How do I choose the best size in bedwetting underwear?"
Use your child's clothing size. GoodNites® Underwear small/medium size is similar to clothing sizes 4 to 8; large/extra large is similar to 8 to 14.
"Can you wear underwear on top?"
Yes. That said, most kids wear GoodNites® Underwear as a replacement for underwear at night.
"Can I reuse the bed mat?"
If wet, the mat should be removed and thrown away when the child wakes up. If it is not wet, the mat can remain in place for a second night.
