Did you know that 1 in 6 kids from the ages of 4-12 will wet the bed, at least once a week, after potty training ends? At night, a child’s bladder does not wake up their brain in time to make it to the bathroom. Children can’t control it, but they do, eventually, grow out of it. There are a lot of helpful tips out there. One of the things that has helped us in the past and now, is setting up a bedtime routine that the child can be involved in and incorporating products like GoodNites.
We are currently transitioning between the GoodNites Bedtime Pants and the GoodNites TruFit Underwear.
GoodNites Bedtime Pants feel and look more like real underwear and are made for children 4 and older. They are also more absorbent and zoned for protection where boys and girls need it the most.
GoodNites TruFit Underwear look, feel and wear like real underwear! They also come in cool colors and patterns for boys and girls. They are machine washable and come with absorbent inserts that keep their clothes and sheets dry.
I found both of these while shopping at my local Walmart and right now, while supplies last, you can get a coupon for $2.00 off of your GoodNites Purchase! (If the coupon isn’t available, keep checking back for more chances to get one!)
Making your own, kid-involved bedtime routine is easy.
Step 1: Make a list of everything you and your child do to get ready for bed.
Step 2: Break it down into smaller steps, so that the child only has one thing to do at a time.
Step 3: Make it visual. Create a list with words and pictures that show the child what is involved in each step. For example, a picture of a toothbrush and toothpaste next to the brushing teeth step.
Step 4: Make sure that you give them something to look forward to after they complete a step. We have our bedtime routine laminated and our daughter checks the steps off as she does them.
Step 5: Make sure that everything needed for the bedtime routine is easily accessible for your child. It will give them so much more confidence and a sense of accomplishment when they can do things for themselves.
Feel free to make your own bedtime routine, but if you need some ideas or assistance, I have made this one as a free, downloadable printable for you.
We think that GoodNites lead to great mornings and I think our daughter does as well.
