I used to sleep like a college student on summer break. Nothing could wake me until my body was ready. Then, I became a mom. Now I sleep like a baby. Awake every two hours for no discernible reason. Some nights I wake up and cannot remember if The Boy used the bathroom prior to going to bed. You do it too, don’t you?
In the dark, I lay in my bed wondering if he is wet and cold. Although he’s been toilet trained since he was 2 1/2, there is still some nighttime bedwetting. I can hear his sound machine, the waves crashing on the beach and the buoy ringing out from time to time. Desperately, I try to convince myself that he is warm and dry. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. I rush into his room only to find him curled up, wet and cold.
He’s five now. And doesn’t want to wear “baby diapers” at night, especially as bedwetting isn’t an every night thing for him. I can’t say I blame him. We’ve talked so much about how turning five makes you a “big kid” because you get to go to Kindergarten. Why would you want to use something that was deemed babyish?
I was picking up his vitamins at my neighborhood pharmacy a few days ago and noticed GoodNites* TRU-FIT*. They looked so interesting. GoodNites* TRU-FIT* look and feel like regular underwear; the only difference is a disposable insert for leak-proof protection. I figured we would give it a try. Anything is better than sleepless nights and changing wet bedding at 2AM.
The starter kit includes 2 pairs of underwear and 5 disposable inserts. At night, you slip the insert into the pouch of the undies, then the kid into the undies. The inserts are very absorbent and we haven’t experienced any leaking. In the morning, you discard the insert and toss the undies into the laundry. Easy peasy.
I’m sleeping better knowing that The Boy is across the hall, warm and dry. Dreaming all sorts of dreams.
They’ve thought of everything – GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are available in two sizes, in both boy and girl color schemes, and they’re affordably priced, too. You can machine wash them up to 30 times before they need replacing.
What keeps you awake at night?
