It’s important to remember that bedwetting is a common condition, so remember, you’re not alone. However, if you have an upcoming school trip and are worried about wetting the bed, we’ve put together some tips to help make your trip as fun and worry-free as possible.
Tell a teacher
Teachers will be able to assist you if you wet the bed on a school trip in a discreet and helpful way. If you’re uncomfortable telling a teacher about your bedwetting, perhaps ask a parent or close friend to do it for you.
Tips to assist with bedwetting on school trips
Pack plastic bags to dispose of any night pants or, hygienically pack wet clothes into your bag to be washed when you return after the school trip.
- Pack a disposable bed mat to place under or on top of the bedsheet to add an extra layer of protection for up to 12 hours.
- Bring a few pairs of spare pyjamas.
- Always go to the toilet before getting into bed.
- Use a handy torch or nightlight during the night should you have a bedwetting incident in order to navigate your way around the bedroom and bathroom without causing too much disruption to the others.
- Try and sleep on a lower bunk or somewhere with easy access to the bathroom should you encounter a bedwetting incident during the school trip.
