A few words from Dr Penny Dobson MBE, DryNites expert and founder of ERIC
From my 21 years as founder and former director of the children's charity ERIC (Education and Resources for Improving Childhood Continence), I fully understand the worry and the sense of isolation and shame that bedwetting can bring. Many parents feel they are "the only ones in the world" whose child is late in becoming dry at night - it is not something that is easily shared. Yet this problem is almost as common as asthma or eczema. All too often parents worry that it is somehow their fault - although there is no evidence to support this.
The positive message is that help is available. The DryNites website has plenty of supportive and up to date information, with tips on what parents can do and details of where to go for further advice. DryNites sleepwear offer the absorbency needed for nightlong protection and give children - and parents - the chance to break the cycle of worry and anxiety.
