Children do not wet the bed because they are lazy.
I mean, who would want to lay in their own pee?
My kids HATE waking up wet, in fact my son to this way will flip out if his blankets are wet from sweat alone.
So they certainly wouldn’t not get up. intentionally, in the middle if the night if they had to pee.
Parents need to be patient with their kids, not punish them, and provide them with the confidence they need to not be embarrassed if they don’t experience a dry night.
Bedwetting is a common problem and instead of accepting it as a normal part of childhood, people treat it as a secret which only causes children more stress. They feel like they are the only ones, when in reality 5-7 million children struggle with bedwetting.
According to WebMD there are a lot of different reason kids wet the bed – and none of them can be blamed on the child.
- Children who wet the bed are more likely to have parents who wet the bed when they were young.
- Some kids seem to experience a delay in the way the brain communicates with the bladder. It just takes their brains longer to catch on to the signals or the brain might be telling the bladder it is full when it isn’t which causes the bladder to empty prematurely. Their also may be a lower level of the hormone that tells the body to make less urine, which means their kidneys are making extra urine at night.
Sleeping to deeply
- Some kids just sleep do deep that their brain never gets the signal that the bladder is full in order to help wake them up.
Just as kids won’t want to feel wet in the middle of the night, parents don’t want to have to be changing sheets in the middle of the laundry. Midnight laundry is just not fun. And just because bedwetting is beyond our control, doesn’t mean there aren’t solutions that can help your child feel more confident and comfortable and alleviate your middle-of-the-night laundry sessions.

What’s great about GoodNites Underwear is that they are discrete and keep my daughter’s jammies and her bed dry, even if she doesn’t. They are cute and discrete, so she doesn’t mind wearing them and doesn’t have to feel like she is wearing a bulky diaper.
