Does your child wet the bed?

You’re not alone. Many kids wet the bed every night.   My son has an issue wetting the bed… and he likely inherited that trait from me.

Bedwetting happens when a child urinates during his sleep without knowing it (enuresis).

The most important thing to keep in mind that your child doesn’t wet the bed on purpose. They really can’t help it – they may be deep sleepers who can’t feel that their bladders are full and aren’t able to wake up during the night to use the bathroom.

I’m one of those parents who will often be washing sheets and disinfecting the mattress in the middle of the night.  But since trying the Oops! Sheet, my mattress has been saved.

The Oops! Sheet is a wonderful waterproof yet breathable fitted cotton bed sheet designed to keep parents sane and kid’s beds dry.   It’s soft and plushy and beats any other mattress protector I’ve tried.

The good news is that almost all kids who wet the bed eventually stop.  If your child wets the bed, try not to have them drink anything after dinner and remind them to go to the bathroom before going to bed.

Winner!  Congrats to Jessica of Brampton, ON!

  1. Does the Oops sheet come in a variety of sizes? Our”leaky” DD sleeps on a Queen sized mattress. We’ve been looking for a better waterproof sheet, but most are really plasticky and HOT.
