I mentioned a few weeks ago that we have been using GoodNites Bed Mats with our 4 year old son who is having problems with bed wetting. I received quite a few encouraging emails and Facebook messages from parents whose children had dealt with the same issue. I was also educated on the difference between nighttime potty training and bed wetting.
I learned that potty training is the process of training a young child to use the toilet. Well, we’ve done that successfully! Our son doesn’t have any problems at all during the day using the toilet. Bed wetting, or nocturnal enuresis, is involuntary urination while asleep after the age at which bladder control usually occurs. That was kind of a wake up call for me. Our son is definitely dealing with nocturnal enuresis. One reader told me about her daughter who just slept so hard that she just couldn’t wake up when she had to go to the bathroom at night. I’m not sure what our son’s issue is, but I have been so encouraged hearing from other parents whose children have outgrown bed wetting. If you are in a similar situation and are frustrated – hang in there!
This infographic is pretty helpful in understanding bed wetting.

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of GoodNites. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.This article may contain affiliate links.
