If you haven’t noticed, there are no potty-training tips on our blog. Charlie is potty-trained and has been for almost a year I think. Honestly, I have no idea when he was actually potty-trained, but I know it was an impossible nightmare to get to that point. Something just clicked inside of him and it happened overnight. I do hope that we have an easier time potty-training Owen, but I’m not looking forward to that.
I’ve recently learned that just because Charlie is potty-trained, doesn’t mean we’re done with wet beds. Charlie just turned 4, but 15% of children still wet the bed at age 5. In a house of boys, bed wetting is going to be more common for us than a house of girls would experience.
We’re sharing 5 Tips to help you Conquer Bed Wetting!
1. Limit Liquids Before Bed
This is a tough one for us. Charlie loves his “good night milk”, but we’re going to work on making it earlier in the evening instead of right before bed.
2. Meet Sal
Here’s a fun book you can read with your child, so they know they’re not alone.
And what kid doesn’t like to color? You can bring Sal the Sasquatch into your daytime routine with these coloring pages:
3. Be Informed

4. Use Pampers UnderJams
Pampers Underjams are a great way to provide night time leakage protection, featuring a NightLock ultra-absorbent core. They have ComfortWear quiet, cloth-like materials for privacy (none of those crinkle sounds that diapers make) and they’re low-waisted, so no one will know they are wearing them!
5. Stay Calm
The last, and probably the most important, tip I’m sharing is to try and stay calm. I can only imagine how frustrating it is to be woken up in the middle of night to have to change sheets and get a kid back to sleep. Just try to reassure them that it’s okay.
I love that should the need arise with either of our boys, Pampers makes a product that is perfect to conquer bed wetting.
