As a mom of four kids, I changed diapers for TEN YEARS straight! Yes, ten years. And just recently our youngest son became fully potty-trained and it was seriously the best thing ever. I'm still on Cloud 9 every time I see him run to the restroom because he was a full six months younger than any of his older siblings (thanks to his amazing preschool teacher who I like to call the Potty Training Whisperer!)
But wait, why am I talking about diapers and potty training if we're done with that? Because although we are 100% trained during the day, our 4 year old is still wet when he wakes up almost every morning. And I'm 100% okay with that. Why?
Bedwetting is a fairly common, developmental condition that you can't "train" your child out of. According to a GoodNites® brand study, 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 experience bedwetting. We just happen to have one of those 1 in 6 children. He is 100% potty trained during the day and he has been for over a year and a half, but he very rarely wakes up dry. When his little brother was still wearing diapers I would just put a diaper on him at night time. But once we were done with diapers (his baby brother doesn't need one at night) I really wanted to not have to lay down our 4 year old to put on a diaper. I wanted him to feel like a big boy, and so we bought these...
GoodNites® Bedtime Underwear that he can wear to bed. And the best part?
Besides Spiderman, of course! Our 4 year old can get himself dressed for bed, including his GoodNites® Bedtime Underwear without any help at all. So there is never any unnecessary attention being drawn to him. Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that psychologically, children who wet the bed do not want to participate in fun activities, such as sleepovers, because of their fear and embarrassment. And we definitely don't want to make him feel bad for something that we know he will grow out of. He feels confident and happy, and I love waking up to his sweet hugs and clean sheets in the morning! He just pulls one out of the basket every night at bedtime, and tosses it out himself in the morning.
We picked up our GoodNites® Bedtime Underwear at Food 4 Less. They're priced right, and little brother sure was excited to see Spiderman too!
