We have been having some evaluations done with her, as there are some concerns she has autism like her brother, but it is such a vast spectrum, and no two cases are alike, it is very hard to be sure. I believe that she is even more upset my not having control over situations because of her possible autism. Seemingly minor problems seem to upset her quite a bit. It's really hard because I want to be able to make all her problems go away, and sometimes I just can't.
Most nights, she is dry as a bone and goes to the bathroom when she wakes up. However, she does not have the sensation to wake up and use the bathroom if needed, so she has accidents occasionally. That is totally normal. Bedwetting is fairly common and not something that can be controlled or trained away. 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from bedwetting(nocturnal enuresis), but to her it is awful.
The hardest part is since she is so independent, she does not want to wear a diaper or training pant(the same as a diaper in her mind) to bed. She has thrown truly huge tantrums in protest of such bed-wetting prevention products. I have tried letting her sleep with no protection, but then those times she does wet the bed, she feels even worse with her bed being wet and having to change pajamas and go through all that, which is also taking valuable sleep time away from her.
GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are REAL underwear that are coupled with absorbent disposable inserts. Now she can have the "big girl" underwear she is used to, while still having discreet but outstanding nighttime protection. The Absorbent Insert uses a 6-Layer Advanced Absorbent Technology to help lock in wetness.
Every night, you just use a clean pair of GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear and.new disposable insert. The next morning, you throw out the disposable insert and put the GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear in the hamper to be washed. They are real, high quality underwear, so they can be washed as often as needed, and will probably last even longer than your child's other underwear because of the quality.
GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear come in fun colors and patterns too, so there is no compromising style for protection. My daughter fancies herself a diva. She changes clothes 4-5 times a day, which drives me nuts, but makes her very happy. She loves fashion and will not allow her creativity to be hindered.
The fact that she can wear these amazing (real) underwear, makes her happy. It makes her okay with wearing them and keeps her confidence high, which is great because she never lacks confidence, except for her bedwetting is concealed. It made her very self-conscious. I am sure it still does a little bit, but having "invisible" protection is such a big help for her.
She has been wanting to stay over at her cousin's house, but did not want to go with training pants or risk and accident going unprotected. Now she is bugging me every other day to set a date, because she feels so much more confidant in her GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear.
I know that GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Underwear would be the perfect solution for children who feel ashamed by their bedwetting, and especially who feel embarrassed to be seen(at sleepovers, etc) in other protection products. Since GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are real underwear, if someone does see them, they would never even know.
