Some kids ace the nighttime part of potty-training right away, while others can take anywhere from a few days to a few years to stay dry all night. Waking up cold, wet and alone is enough to put a damper on any kid's life. Here are a few bedwetting aids that'll help pave a path towards dry, comfortable nights and happier days.
Prince Bravery & Grace: Attack of the Wet Knights Bedwetting can really take a toll on a kid's self esteem. Gail Ann Gross's metaphorical bedtime storybook, Prince Bravery & Grace: Attack of the Wet Knights, can help boost your child's confidence, giving him the motivation to end his bedwetting behavior. In the tale, young Prince Bravery struggles with "the Wet Knights," eventually defeating them by using an alarm.
Sleeping Bag Liner Keep your child's bedwetting under wraps at the next slumber party with this absorbent, waterproof sleeping bag liner. Tuck the cotton twill liner into the bag and nighttime accidents will be hidden discreetly, keeping embarrassment at bay.
Malem Alarm If you want to try an electronic solution, invest in the easy-to-use Malem bedwetting alarm. When the alarm's sensor detects the first drop of moisture, it sounds. The noise will alert your child. The system is designed to eventually condition him to respond to the feeling of a full bladder -- and eventually get to the bathroom before the alarm goes off.
Nikky All Night Pants Tired of buying expensive, disposable nighttime pull-ups? If so, try the economical, eco-friendly Nikky All Night Pants as an alternative. Made of 100 percent cotton padding and water repellent poly, these double-duty cloth underpants can absorb 1 cup of liquid. Toss them in the washing machine in the morning and re-use them at night.
Waterproof Blanket Disguised as a super-soft patterned blanket, this waterproof pad can keep any sleeping spot dry. Big enough to cover a twin bed, it's cozy protection that looks good and can go anywhere.
Disposable Bed Mats Bedwetting can happen in a hotel where there's no laundry available too, so make your trip easier by packing one of these mats you can just throw it away in the morning.
