Q.

wets bed everynight

My toddler is still in nappies (2 next month). We've moved into a big bed, no problems. But for a while now he has been weeing right through his nappy every single night! I have tried everything, every brand of nappy, even using a waterproof pants over the nappy and a nappy liner in the nappy. He sleeps from 8-5:30/6, quite long, is it just because he sleeps so long? I even stopped giving him any liquid after 6pm. What can I do? I have to wash and change bedding every single day. Luckily I have a water[roof matress protector. Does he have some sort of condition that he wees so much. Just at night, no problems in the day time.

He does seem to be passing excessive amounts of urine and it would be worthwhile just to ask your doctor to test his urine especially for sugar. Diabetes must be excluded here. Also at the same time your doctor will test his urine for any possible urine infection.

Hi

Have you tried taking her to the loo before you go to bed? she will go right back to sleep after. just do not make to mutch of a fuss and do it quiet. She is old enough to do this.

You will see. in no time at all you will not need the nappy eather.

My child had the same problem. I use the Huggies Gold and find they are very absorbent. I also change her nappy before I go to bed at night and she stays dry till morning.
