This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of GoodNites®. A child who wets the bed may feel alone and embarrassed that this is happening during sleep time and it’s important to let your child know their not alone. Older children that are wetting the bed normally suffer from enuresis which is means their not able to control their urination during sleep. A few ways to help with bed wetting are limiting fluid intake before bedtime and limiting caffeine as it increases the amount of urine created by the kidneys. My son goes to bed at about 9 pm every night, so right around 7 pm I cut off all liquid consumption so that is a tip you could try, although it doesn’t always help. It’s so important to let your child know it’s not their fault and they shouldn’t be ashamed. My son seems disappointed when it happens and I always sit down with him letting him know it’s okay and he’s not alone. Did you know bed wetting could be a result of stress as well? A new baby, starting school, illness or bullying are a few stress factors that can contribute to bed wetting. A great resource for bed wetting is to be armed with a better simple night’s sleep kit which could include GoodNites® Bed Mats, blankets, night light and speaker for music to keep them comfortable.
GoodNites® Bed Mats are there when you need them the most. Their providing easy to use nighttime protection to keep your sheets dry and cut down on sheet changes which are the worst. There is nothing worse than waking up at 2 am to change sheets because your child has wet the bed. GoodNites® Bed Mats are soft, quiet and super absorbent and placement is a breeze. Each mat is 7.4 square feet and designed to fit twin beds but will work on any size bed as well. To use just place, peel (improved peel stripes to keep the Bed Mat in place) and protect. I love that when I placed the GoodNites® Bed Mats on my sons bed he didn’t even feel a difference between lying on this or on his sheet, their also super quiet as stated. I would love to hear what you do to help your child before bedtime and would love to hear words of encouragement you say to him/her after a bed wetting incident.
