5 tips for managing wet nights
Bedwetting can be stressful for the whole family. Not only is there concern over the wetting itself, but increased laundry loads and tiredness can become a burden. Here are some tips to make wet nights that bit easier…
1. USE A WATERPROOF BEDSHEET
The last thing you want is to have wet stains on your mattress. Use a waterproof bedsheet to protect the bed from the wet sheets.
2. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CLEANER TO HAND
No one wants a bedroom smelling of urine. An odour eliminator spray helps to keep the room feeling fresh and gets rid of any unpleasant smells.
3. MAKE THE BED TWICE
If you’re fed up of changing the sheets in the middle of the night, this is a brilliant hack! Put two layers of sheets on the bed, with a waterproof one in between. Then when wetting occurs you can simply whip off the top layer and the bed is ready made!
4. GET YOUR CHILD TO HELP
It’s important that your child takes responsibility with their bedwetting treatment, so getting them to help clean up is a great way to get them involved. Get them to help strip the bed and put their bedding in the wash.
5. SOLVE THEIR BEDWETTING
Ultimately, the best way to deal with wet nights is to put a stop to them. Take action against their wetting by using a bedwetting alarm to speed up the natural developmental link between your child’s brain and bladder to achieve long-term dryness.
