I think one of the hardest things about parenting is potty training. I seriously dread it and put it off for as long as I can. I would love to send them away to Grandma's house for a week and then they magically be potty trained, seriously how awesome would that be? Or even just pay someone to do it, I would gladly do that. Potty training is hard enough, but when you have a kid that has been potty trained for 4 years and then all the sudden starts having accidents again, in the day and in the night it really can throw you off guard. That is what happened to us. And it's not fun. It's embarrassing for the kid but also hard for the parents. I came up with a few ideas to help make the situation better and easier on all of us because when it comes to using the bathroom, it's a very delicate matter.
GoodNites* has a newer product called GoodNites* TRU-FIT*. It is real underwear that you can put in a super absorbent liner in that helps with night time bed wetting. I picked up the GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear Starter Kit from Fred Meyer to help with my son's situation. I chose the TRU-FIT* because of the fact that they are real underwear and that if someone sees it, they don't have to know that it has a liner in it. It makes it easier for it to be a little secret between us and my son.
The GoodNites* TRU-FIT Underwear Starter Kit comes with two pairs of underwear and 5 disposable inserts that you put into the pocket. When they have them on, they look like normal underwear. Then when the child has an accident in the night, they can just go into the bathroom and remove the insert. It's actually pretty cool I think and I think that it will make the bedwetting problem easier for the kids. Studies have shown that 1 in 6 children between the ages 4-12 have problems with bedwetting. Kids with bedwetting problems struggle with wanting to participate in fun activities like sleep overs. There isn't a way to train your child out of bedwetting, so that why these products are so nice to have because it really helps with the situation. If you want more information about bedwetting, check out GoodNites* website and Facebook page. They even have a YouTube channel to help with it too.
I use the GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear for my son at night, but I actually use them in the day too. My son is very shy and he likes to hold his pee and by the time he needs to go, he can't hold it any longer. He is a very shy boy and has a hard time asking the teacher if he can go to the bathroom because he's afraid that he will get in trouble or he thinks that he's not allow to go during class time. So we talked to his teachers about it but I also made them a dryness chart to help me out. First off the chart reminds him to really try to remember to ask to go and not hold it. But also it rewards him for going and staying dry. You can get the printable here.
My favorite thing about the GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear is that you can't tell that they aren't regular underwear. Kids can be so mean and if they saw something that looked like a diaper, I guarantee that they would make fun of them. Even worse is when they have an accident. It just makes me so sad. These help because if he has an accident, people don't have to know. He can just go into the bathroom and throw away the liner.
