When I was a child, bedwetting was something I had issues with for quite some time. I slept so soundly that I just didn’t wake up if I needed to go to the washroom and even for the first few years of grade school I had occasional accidents. I remember once being invited on vacation with my babysitter, who was like a second mother to me, and being told that I wasn’t allowed to go because my mom didn’t want my sitter dealing with a possible accident. I still remember how hurt I was when that happened.
The advantage of having that experience as a child is that I am incredibly patient with my boys if they happen to have an accident at night. Zackary has really never had a problem with bedwetting but Benjamin has accidents every once in a while, especially if he’s in a strange place or has had any upheaval to his usual daily routine. That’s why I absolutely loved the idea behind GoodNites Bed Mats. I only wish there had been products like this when I was a child!
These clever disposable mats are perfect for children that have sporadic issues with bedwetting and are especially handy for travelling. The mats feature an adhesive strip around the edge so that a mat can be affixed to a mattress in just the right spot. Recently GoodNites sent me a bedroom makeover kit packed with fun accessories for Benjamin’s room and a package of GoodNites Bed Mats to review. While we had a great time setting up a constellation light, glowing sand art and mini nightlights in his room, it was the Bed Mats that I was most excited to test out. [Read more…]
