Did you know that over 5 million children ages 5-12 struggle with bed-wetting?!
While bed-wetting has not been a major issue for us, thankfully, I do have a few friends that have gone through bed-wetting and have shared their struggles with me.
So for today’s post I asked around to gather some helpful tips.
Cut down on drinks after dinner.
Establish a bedtime routine that includes a potty break.
Light a path to the bathroom. We have a little motion detector light for our hallway to help make trips to the bathroom a bit easier.
Encouragement and positive words get more results than anger and frustration. I get that it’s a VERY frustrating situation to deal with, (this coming from the lady that once woke up at 3 in the morning while 8 months pregnant to scrub diarrhea from up and down the hallway after my poor baby lady had an accident on her way to the potty. (This is also why I HIGHLY suggest a hallway light of some sort) but reacting with anger and frustration will just encourage your child to have the same reaction.
