TOOTH PASTE, TOOTHBRUSH, DRYNITES – CHECK!
If you are going through a bedwetting phase at the moment, we understand why you might be a bit worried about a sleepover.
We can tell you a million times that you’re not alone (because, actually, a lot of teenagers wet the bed sometimes), but that’s hardly helpful right now. Not when the fear of wetting the bed at someone else’s house seems all too real. Here’s the good news, there are plenty of ways to avoid that ever happening – or to deal with it quickly and quietly, if it does.
How can I manage bedwetting and sleepovers?
One of the most common concerns for children and teenagers who wet the bed is attending events like sleepovers or school-camps, in fact many children just avoid these altogether.
DryNites® are the perfect solution for this as they are discrete and can be worn under pyjamas so there is really no need for anyone to even know.
It’s often helpful to talk to the parents where your child is staying and prearrange a place where they can discretely change their clothes and dispose of their DryNites®.
Sometimes it’s a good idea to have a practice run at home so that your child feels more confident when they are with their friends.
Bedwetting pants for extra protection. Pull them on and wear them all night, safe in the knowledge that no one can tell they are there except you. A sealable plastic bag in with your things is a great way to zip them up in the morning, ready for the trash. Once again, a supervising adult will be on hand to help out. Maybe you’ll even have a signal or password so they can let you know the coast is clear.
