Help your child who suffers from bedwetting have a good N.I.G.H.T. - Tips and tricks!

For children, and parents of children, who struggle with nocturnal enuresis (more commonly known as “Bedwetting”), every night can seem like a battle to stay dry, and to keep sheets clean.

Despite popular belief, research shows that nocturnal enuresis is not a condition that children have control over or that they can be “trained out of”. Even still, it is a condition that can bring the child great embarrassment and anxiety, especially when spending the night away from home. For this reason, nocturnal enuresis should be treated with a great deal of love, understanding and patience.

If your child suffers from nocturnal enuresis here are a few tips to help him or her overcome bedwetting and have a successful night, as well as how to ease their anxiety on the “not so successful” nights.

Tips to help your child have a good N.I.G.H.T.

N- no drinks after 8pm: It is
easier for children who suffer from
nocturnal enuresis to have a successful night when their bladders are not full. You may also want to eliminate sugary drinks and caffeinated drinks for the entire evening time.

I- independence: For a child who struggles with nocturnal enuresis (especially an older child) waking up wet in the night can feel embarrassing and leave them feeling powerless. Help them to overcome this feeling by teaching them where to find clean sheets, and where to put soiled clothes and bedding. Having these skills will help your child feel as though they have some control over the situation.

G- GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear: New from GoodNites® brand is a completely new kind of bedtime protection, GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear. GoodNites* TRU-FIT* is machine-washable, real underwear with disposable, absorbent inserts that keeps nighttime mishaps locked away, and keep bedding and clothing dry at night. The great thing about these is that they look and feel just like ordinary underwear, helping children feel secure without feeling embarrassed. The absorbent insert simply sits inside of a plastic liner inside of the underwear, so if accidents do happen, the insert can simply be removed and a new one can be put in. GoodNites* TRU-FIT* is available now at select national retailers for purchase for boys and girls in sizes S/M and L/XL with colors and patterns for each size. You can also visit their website to grab a coupon for $3 off.

H- Have a nighttime routine: having a bathroom routine help children with nocturnal enuresis get into a successful pattern. Be sure to have your child use the bathroom before bed and consider waking him or her up a few times during the night for a bathroom break. For older children, you may want to set an alarm clock, to let them take some control over waking themselves up for a bathroom break.

T- Talk: Talk to your child about nocturnal enuresis. Be sure to let them know that this is an actual medical condition, and not something that is their fault. Also ease their embarrassment over the situation by letting them know that it is very common among children their age (It is estimated that in the US 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4 and 12 struggle with this problem.)

Taking the time to make sure your child has a good N.I.G.H.T. will help to ease their anxiety over going to sleep each night, and will help you both feel as though you are taking some control over the situation. For more tips and advice follow GoodNites on Facebook and Twitter.

  • My biggest struggle is with a heavy sleeper. So even when he does have an accident, he doesn’t always wake up right away. 🙁 another struggle is getting his doc to do some testing. They keep pushing it aside like it’s no big deal.

  • My child wet until age 7. At her well check, the pediatrician told us about bedwettingstore.com. we got a Malem alarm and it went off the first 5 nights…ever since the 6th night, she has been dry for the past year and a half. Wish I had known about them sooner. Might be cheaper on Amazon.

  • My biggest frustration other than washing sheets ifbi don’t wake my son (9yrs) up nightly is his being so disappointed when he wets himself. Exactly 3 hours after bedtime I wake him up and he goes then he’s good till I wake him for school but the weekend he can’t sleep in a bit because if it’s over 6 hours from the time I woke him at night he wets. So weekends are pretty much the same as weekdays but we do have the occasional accident. Thanks for the vent and the chance at winning;)

  • my daughter holds her pee so long and gets distracted she will run to the bathroom and can’t get her pants and underwear down in time and ends up peeing all over the floor. its happened about 5 times in the last week.

  • My 5 year old still wets the bed at night. I know he is very frustrated and we are to. We love these underwear for him her can do it himself

  • Biggest frustration is soiling the mattresses or the furniture because he is such a heavy sleeper he doesn’t wake up to go. So I have to not let him fall asleep on the couches.

  • My son is scared of the potty! The doctor recommended we have him practice sitting on the potty fully clothed, so he can get used to it. I think we are in for a long process with him!!

  • Right now, I’m having a hard time getting my son to even go to the toilet to pee. It’s like he’s scared to use the potty.

  • My biggest frustration is that my son is a very deep sleeper and doesn’t wake up when he pees in the bed. 🙁 That and the constant sheets washing…

  • My biggest frustration is having to wash sheets all the time after bedwetting.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • My biggest frustration is accidents. I know my daughter isn’t doing it intentionally, but she seems to always have them next to our heating vents which are on the floor. Not fun to clean. On another note, I think this product is a great idea.

  • ive only experienced issues when babysitting, I don’t have children of my own. At that point I just try and be gracious and get them cleaned up and comfy again.

  • I didn’t have too many problems night training my “day-trained” kids. We incorporated several of these rules when we started potty training (no liquids after 8pm, etc.) so it made the transition easier. I never used pull-ups, just went straight to regular underwear. I had one heavier sleeper and she would sometimes have an accident if she were over tired but we never made a big deal about it. Just changed everything and went back to bed.

  • I think the hardest is when I forget to remind him to go before bed, or give to much liquids before bedtime. He is day trained, but is wet everynight. We always use the regular Goodnights, but I think he would love these so much better!
