Bedwetting tips for Girls
Although boys are slightly more prone to bedwetting than girls, night time accidents can cause emotional upset for girls too.
DryNites® Pyjama Pants for Girls
Experts are not exactly sure why, but some studies suggest that girls tend to develop bladder control a little earlier than boys. This is why DryNites® specifically design different Pyjama Pants for boys and girls. Specially designed to look just like normal underwear, DryNites® Pyjama Pants are discreet and highly absorbent, helping your child get a restful night's sleep.
Preparing for sleepovers
While the first sleepover might seem like a daunting prospect if your child wets the bed, there's no reason why they shouldn't enjoy nights away, provided you make the right preparations. If your child is nervous, give them plenty of encouragement and explain that with your help they’ll be able to join in the fun.
As well as remembering to pack DryNites® Pyjama Pants, there are a number of steps your child can take to protect against accidents while away. Remind them to cut back on drinks an hour or two before bed and to have a last wee before lights out. And encouraging your child to get a good night's rest before the sleepover is also a good idea, as children often don’t sleep as well when away from home.
Practice makes perfect
You can practise all these steps at home before the sleepover to help your child feel more confident about managing while they're away. With your child's permission, it's also a good idea to talk to the adult wherever your child is staying about your child's bedwetting so that they can offer support in your absence.
If your child is really worried about spending the night away, suggest that they invite friends to a sleepover at home as a first step.
