I’ve been an Ambassador for Goodnites for a few weeks now and I was supplied with a bag of Goodnites Disposable Bed Mats to test out and give you my opinion on how they worked out. If you watched my video in my previous post then you would know that I’ve been using Goodnites for about a year now and my husband and I swear by them. We’ve run the gambit on all the steps parents can take on easing nighttime bedwetting, but accidents happen. The nice thing is, with the bed mats, accidents won’t ruin your mattress (especially if you are a co-sleeper!).
I had a reader ask me how old was too old for bedwetting and at what age should they be concerned. You know, I had this same question many years ago with my first child and as my youngest is my husband’s first child, he had these same questions too. It wouldn’t surprise me if every parent wondered this at one point. So you aren’t alone. Many of us feel an odd sense of shame when it comes to our children’s bedwetting, as if it had something to do with what we were not doing.
Bedwetting is completely natural. The process of Potty Training a child doesn’t have anything to do with Bedwetting. It is a condition called Enuresis that a child cannot be trained out of. Children will outgrow it in time naturally, as we all have. Some will stop earlier than others, just as any other milestone is different for children. This is not to say that it will occur every single night, but there will be accidents sometimes and that’s okay. That’s why we have products like Goodnites to help out.
Goodnites also has The Better Night Network with expert support to help you with any questions you might have about bedwetting, videos and also a place with other Moms that have the same questions we all have. Sometimes it is really nice to have support.
Goodnites Disposable Bed Mats actually won the 2013 Product of the Year Contest. Which doesn’t really surprise me in the least! They are very easy to put on, they’re soft to sleep on and are capable of absorbing in a way that pulls the wetness away from the child. As a parent who had once-upon-a-time went through multiple mattresses, these have been a super mattress-saver!
We noticed a big difference with my son after a few weeks of using these. His confidence became stronger and he had a bit more pride in himself in the morning; especially if he made it through the night without an accident. They certainly allow him better rest and that (for me) is the most valuable thing that Goodnites offers, a little peace of mind.
