January 30, 6 min read. However, how would you know? Our first child had no issues and he was dry at night by 3. Our second child, dry both day and night from 2 months after her 2nd birthday. Easy Peasy, this stuff! She was our good sleeper, in fact people used to ask if we even had a third baby! Roll onto our fourth child and yes dry again by the age of 2, both night and day. Suddenly, our fourth child was out of nappies and had overtaken No 3 child to dry nights.
It was disheartening for No 3 but we stayed positive, thinking it will be a matter of time. We tried no nappies and some nights I would be up 3 times a night changing bed sheets. I recall being in a bank one day and overhearing two bank tellers discussing their year-old son with a bed wetting problem.
Suddenly my 8-year-old was nervous about buying nappies when we had guests, having sleepovers or Bed wetting stories her wet nappies in the morning without all members of the family seeing. She was anxious about other stuff too and that was getting worse and although I have no direct proof that it was related to her bed wetting, I felt in myself that it could have been.
The timing! Quite obviously sent to save the day for our third child and I immediately asked if we could trial. Jacob Sagie, Ph. They have created program called TheraPee.
What we love about this concept is that it does not require your child to go to embarrassing Doctors appointments to discuss their bedwetting. The plan includes a bed wetting alarm and an online component which is truly what made our little one engage with the program. I sat down and talked to No 3 about the program and weirdly she was adamant, that she was NOT going to give it a go. No 3 loved hearing Dr Sagie tell her how well she had done!
We watched the video for a second time and discussed the reward chart.
She saved it to my favourites, and we set her bed up with the alarm pad. She chose the volume and the tune she wanted. She understood clearly about visiting the toilet if she wet the bed, regardless of whether she had finished or not.
The alarm pad was not attached to our child like a lot are which turned out to be a life saver when we traveled and it allowed our 3 some privacy about the matter with her younger sibling who shared a room with her. The mat was simply placed under her bottom sheet. Day 1 I heard her get up at 1. She had got up and gone to the toilet. She was dry and the alarm had not sounded.
She woke up 4 hours later, still dry. It was the first time in more than a year that she had gone to bed with no nappy and on the occasions that she had, she Bed wetting stories always woken wet. I checked her at 1am and she was still dry. She did not get up to go to the toilet and woke up dry. She told me that although she had slept differently on the first night, she had her normal sleep on Night 2. Two blue stars on the Chart! Day 3 Our Saturday movie night and a 9. Maybe too tired and the alarm sounded at 2. She was grumpy but knew she had to take herself off to the toilet.
Changing was easy. As suggested, I had sheets by the bed ready. I took the bottom sheet off and wiped the pad over with the dry part of the sheet the pad was washed fully over the edge of the bath the next morning which was very easy too. Pulled the top sheet over, using it as the bottom sheet and placed a new top sheet.
She changed herself and plopped back into bed. The whole change took 5 minutes. She was still happy to fill out the chart the next morning and discussed when she could next get her red star, you need 3 blue stars to get one red star.
A big red star, may I add. We continued for several weeks, with more and more dry nights than wet. We are now 4 months on and 3 is dry! Yes, it is quite expensive but not compared to face to face appointments with Doctors and Specialists and that money is well and truely well spent for my little girl to have her confidence back.Bed wetting stories
