i am wondering wether there is a disposable pant available for my son to go to school in and not be embarassed adn that will control the odour
Hi Leisa, the first thing you need to do is seek medical advice – any form of daytime incontinence after the age of 5 years needs to be investigated by a doctor. A common cause of daytime toileting difficulties is chronic constipation, a condition that is very treatable. You need to be careful about restricting drinks as this can cause constipation and will only exacerbate the wetting. Unless your daughter was previously dry, it would be very unusual for her to be wetting the bed on purpose. Bedwetting usually occurs when children are asleep so they do not have conscious control over their bladder. Coping with one child wetting the bed is difficult for any parent, so having two children would be particularly challenging, so it is important that you do not try and manage this on your own. The more support your receive from medical professionals at this time the easier the process will be. In the meantime your son can certainly wear his DryNites to school. He may want to wear his underpants over the top so that his friends cannot see them. You will also need to remind him that he needs to change them regularly (after each time he wees or has a bowel motion) to avoid leakage or odour.
