I have a 4 yr old, she only wets the bed at my house. she can go to her dads and to her grandma's house and NOT wet the bed, WHY does she only do it at my house? I don't give her nothing to drink after 7 pm and her bed time is 9 pm. Please, help me and I don't know what to do any more.
Hi! I'm Dawn Meehan with the GoodNites NiteLite® Panel. I understand how frustrated you must feel, but let me first assure you that you aren't doing anything wrong. It’s possible she’s more comfortable at your house (especially if she spends most of her time there) and thus sleeps more deeply when she’s there, not waking up when she needs to urinate. She might be more afraid of having an accident at other houses and that nervousness may keep her from sleeping too soundly. Whatever the cause is, know that it’s very, very common for a 4-year-old to wet the bed. As her body matures a little more, she’s sure to outgrow the bed wetting altogether. In the meantime, don’t make a big deal over nighttime accidents. They’re a common part of growing up. Keep her dry and comfortable with GoodNites® Underwear so she can get a good night’s rest. And don’t take it personally that she only seems to have bedwetting accidents at your house.
