Bedwetting FAQs Answered
Is bedwetting normal?
The first thing to realise about bedwetting is that you are not alone. In fact, parents are often very surprised when they hear how common it actually is. It is estimated that approximately 15 - 20% of 5 year olds wet the bed on a regular basis. So in a class of 20 kindergarten children, that is at least 3 children. This drops to around 10% by age 7.
What age should my child stop wetting the bed?
The time between achieving day time continence and night time dryness can vary from child-to-child and many children continue to wet the bed up to the age of 5 or 6.
Does deep sleep cause bedwetting?
While deep sleeping is not the cause of bedwetting, children who sleep very soundly do find it particularly difficult to respond and wake up to a full bladder. And therefore are slightly more likely to wet the bed.

DryNites are exactly that. They keep our little girl dry at night giving us DryNites. During the day she uses the toilet. The beauty about the DryNites is the pictures on the nappy and the clear wording that indicates that back of the nappy this give our little one some independence when after bath time and she is dressing her self. The DryNites are soft, well made, comfortable, breathable and leak proof. It’s worth every cent.
