It’s bad enough when bed wetting happens at home, but it just seems so much worse to my child to have an accident while traveling. There’s not much more embarrassing than admitting to a friend while on the road that your child accidentally wet the bed. Unless you happen to be the kid who wet the bed. And then it’s downright humiliating. L uckily, I don’t have this problem anymore, but I did. For several years. And since we travel a lot, I had to come up with a solution to keep the bed wetting accidents to a minimum.
Tips for Traveling with a Child Who Wets the Bed #ConquerBedWetting
Limit liquids after a certain time in the evening
I’ve found it’s possible to decrease bed wetting incidences by limiting food and water a couple hours before bed. My kids get plenty of food and drink throughout the day so I don’t think it’s bad for them to stop drinking a bit before bed. I do allow them to have a few sips if they want, but we try really hard to cut out big drinks or snacks that will make the kids thirsty before bed. Also, don’t forgot that one last potty trip right before bed! Sometimes we forget and that’s when the accidents are sure to happen!
Use helpful products like Pampers Underjams and chux pads or disposable bed pads.
I find Pampers Underjams to be very helpful, because they actually come in sizes large enough for my child who still wet the bed at a more advanced age. Plus, they don’t have the stigma like diapers do. Pampers Underjams are made from comfort wear quiet, cloth-like materials for privacy, have a low waist so only your child knows they are wearing them, and are available in sizes S/M and L/XL to fit children up to 85lbs.
