Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GoodNites* TRU-FIT*. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
My oldest son was potty trained by age 2 and has never had an accident during the day. However, night is an entirely different ball game. My son has issues with wetting the bed during the night which is also known as nocturnal enuresis. While I have chatted with my son’s pediatrician and he has assured me it is quite normal at this age (my son is currently 4) especially for boys, I know it frustrates and embarrasses my son. My son is left wondering why he has to wear diapers or night time underwear like his baby brother and I know it really lowers his confidence and self-esteem of being a “big boy”. Well I think I have found a solution with GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear.
GoodNites* TRU-FIT* is machine-washable, real underwear with disposable, absorbent inserts that help keep sheets and PJs dry all night. Since they are underwear they look and feel just like regular underwear. The only difference is the small pocket on the inside to hold the absorbent insert in place during the night!
As parents we want what is best for children. Unfortunately, not many parents are aware that it isn’t the child’s fault and bedwetting is not something that we can train our kids not to do. It is a medical condition (and a fairly common one) that our children outgrow as they get older. So while we are waiting for them to outgrow it, we can help them gain confidence and participate in activities with peers (sleepovers, camping, etc.) without the fear of being embarrassed for wetting the bed.
Facts about Bedwetting:
- According to a GoodNites® brand study, it’s estimated that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from nocturnal enuresis, more commonly known as bedwetting
- Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that psychologically, children who wet the bed do not want to participate in fun activities, such as sleepovers, because of their fear and embarrassment
- Bedwetting is a fairly common condition that a child cannot control or be trained out of- this is important to remember!
- 43% of parents incorrectly believe that bedwetting can be “trained” out of a child
- 41% of parents of bedwetters describe it as frustrating
- 51% seek a better overall bedwetting product
- More than one-quarter express anxiety about their child spending the night somewhere and wetting the bed. I am sure the anxiety is even worse for the child involved.
As a mom I can tell you a product like this invaluable. I cannot wait to pick these up for my son so he can get his confidence back and feel like the big boy he is!
