Have you ever seen that commercial that depicts a child laying on the floor wrapped in a blanket because they wet the bed? That commercial never fails to put a lump in my throat because that was me thirty years ago. Thanks to GoodNites underwear, that is not my child.
Bed wetting affects many children and is in some part genetic. If one parent was a bed wetter when they were a child, their child is more likely to be a bed wetter. Unfortunately, my older daughter has inherited this from me. In the seventies, there were no such products available like GoodNites. I slept on a plastic sheet for many years and unfortunately spent many nights just like that child on the commercial. Although my parents never shamed me and were very understanding to my situation, there was always an underlying sense of embarrassment and a desire not to disturb my mother in the middle of the night when I had one of my accidents.
Fortunately, times have changed and my daughter simply puts on a pair of GoodNites underwear under her pajamas before bedtime and there are no uncomfortable sleep interrupted nights. We have chosen not to place my daughter on any medication although there are some available. We have also decided not to use the alarm system after having it explained to us by her pediatrician. My husband and I have always treated her bed wetting very low key and do not call great attention to it. We feel that having a blaring alarm go off in the middle of the night and rousing her in that way when an accident occurs would be a direct contradiction to the attitude we have and have tried to instill in her as well. We treat it as a minor inconvenience that will resolve itself on it’s own. GoodNites allows us to let nature take it’s course. I outgrew my bed wetting by the age of ten and have complete confidence that she will as well. I do not judge any parent’s decision to take the medication or alarm system route, as I have read the literature and know that some families find great success with these measures. They simply weren’t right for us.
GoodNites feel and look similar to underwear, as opposed to looking like a diaper. They are not bulky or become droopy when wet which provides my daughter the privacy she deserves. She has even worn them on sleepovers with other children and no one has been the wiser! Discretion is crucial to the bed wetting child, especially when they get a little older and most if not all of their friends has long outgrown this habit. GoodNites have stretchy sides which provides all night comfort for children. All other pull ups we have tried can not make the same claims. No more red and itchy waists in the morning.
GoodNites are available for children weighing thirty eight to one hundred and twenty five pounds. This large variance of weight grants me peace of mind that GoodNites will be available to my child for as long as she needs it.
GoodNites are pricier than other brands. For a package of seventeen underpants, you will pay anywhere from eleven to thirteen dollars. The quality and convenience of the product has me a dedicated consumer. I wouldn’t purchase any other product for my daughter.
