A few weeks ago I received a very interesting press drop relating to World Bed wetting day which was on 29 May. Although none of kids are currently going through it at this moment, I do have loads of experience dealing with it. Oh how I wish that I could’ve received the Huggies Drynites pants a few years ago. I would’ve saved me so much sleepless night and many loads of laundry!
Bed wetting, also known as Nocturnal Enuresis, is quite common and sometimes up until the age of 15 years but often not spoken about. And who would? It can be quite embarrassing if you ask me. But, did you know there are many explanations as to why this can happen to your child.
Azaria wet the bed up until almost 8 years old and it was terrible to experience. We tried everything from not giving her liquids after 6pm, setting our alarm for every 2 hours to take her to the loo and using black bags to cover the mattress but it didn’t make our job any easier. We still had to wash the bedding and soaking wet pj’s and we were tired to the bone most days. We never let her sleep over at family because we were always afraid of her wetting the bed.
There are many reasons why children wet the bed and in Azaria’s case, she was a deep sleeper. Constipation, hormones, the inability to recognize when the bladder is full and a small bladder can be some of the other reasons why bedwetting occurs.
DryNites® Pyjama Pants are available for boys and girls and come in two different sizes; 4-7 years and 8-15 years. These age appropriate disposable pyjama pants are super absorbent and comfortable like real underwear. They are thin enough so that children can discreetly wear them underneath their pyjamas, which will make your child feel more comfortable when going to bed. This in turn will also build their confidence and self-esteem.
