Having a school-aged child that has a medical condition that causes her to wet the bed has been a challenging parenting task. When Zoe was diagnosed with vesicoureteral reflux in 2010 her bedwetting got worse. She was diagnosed not long after becoming potty trained but has rarely woken up dry in the evenings. When speaking to her doctor we were told wetting the bed is very common and would occur until she was fully cured.
As a mom, I do whatever I can to help ease her symptoms as she is on a daily antibiotic which has her drinking tons of water to help flush out all her urine, as her urine flows abnormally. Instead of flowing out like it should, her urine flows back to her bladder and into her kidney’s, causing urine to never fully release. Since Zoe is six, she gets disappointed she wets the bed, but I assure her that this will go away and soon. In the last three months she has woken many mornings dry, which makes her ecstatic, but until she is fully cured, we rely on GoodNites to absorb any urine that happens while she is sleeping.
GoodNites Underwear are made for boys and girls age 4 and up and are absorbent, not to mention comfortable. They don’t have a feel of “diapers” so big kids don’t have to feel ashamed about their bedwetting, which is a common developmental condition anyways. No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to train your child not to wet the bed, and trying to can cause stress on you as a parent and your child, impacting your child’s self-esteem. Did you know 43% of parents incorrectly believe they can train their kids out of bedwetting?
Zoe really likes the design and quilt like feel of GoodNites constantly telling me they are not tight, she can easily move and they don’t have a diaper padding feel to them. In my opinion they are bigger than other nighttime pants which makes them more comfortable in the evenings.
On mornings Zoe wakes and does wet the bed, she never leaks through her GoodNites. They provide excellent absorption, keeping her clothing and bed dry. This is excellent, since no child wants to wake up in a pool of urine. She also loves that they have her friends, the Disney Fairies on them and not a “baby” design, perfect for our older children.
GoodNites wants to educate parents on the important differences between potty training and bedwetting so they will know if their child is experiencing the condition and can provide them with the best solution to keep them dry, comfortable and confident.
