Advice for Boys
Bedwetting tips for Boys
Boys are slightly more prone to bedwetting than girls, with boys making up 60% of cases in the younger age groups. Experts are not exactly sure why, but some studies suggest that girls tend to develop bladder control before boys. That’s why DryNites® design specific Pyjama Pants for boys.
Setting your expectations
Becoming dry at night takes a little longer to achieve for some children. Remind yourself that bedwetting is quite common, especially among boys. Even children who have mastered staying dry during the day can wet the bed at night for longer.
Feelings of worry, upset and being different from everyone else are common in boys who think they are alone with this problem. They may also want to hide the bedwetting from family members and friends. Showing your child that you understand what they're going through will help ward off feelings of guilt and reassure them that they are supported.
Night time accidents are bound to cause upset and worry. Your encouragement at this time will help to reassure your child and soothe any negative feelings. Helping them understand that it's not their fault is really important. Bedwetting is a common childhood issue for boys and a supportive parent is also key to helping children get over this hurdle.
