Vinyl covers
If you want a cover that can simply be wiped clean, vinyl seems to have replaced rubber as a lightweight, inexpensive, effective mattress protection. Not only do these vinyl covers protect your bed from urine, but other fluid spills, dust mites and bed bugs. A fitted vinyl cover protects the top and sides, whereas a zippered cover protects all surfaces of the mattress and is necessary for dust and bed bug protection. It is also handy if you’re storing a mattress for any length of time.

A heavy duty 6G vinyl is worth a few more dollars because it is thicker, less apt to tear and will last longer. The disadvantage of using a rubber or vinyl cover is that it doesn’t allow the body heat to dissipate so some users report that they sweat more in the nighttime unless another absorbent mattress pad is used on top.

Polyurethane covers
A newer, more high-tech polyurethane mattress cover is breathable and more comfortable for sleeping. With a terry-cloth top bound to the waterproof polyurethane layer, this cover can even be slept on directly. Available in both a zippered and a fitted style, this lightweight and durable cover can be laundered in the same load as the sheets. Backed by an amazing 10-year warranty, these covers are designed to last!

Rubber and flannel protective sheet
Flannel fused to rubber makes these sheets soft and comfortable next to the skin, as well as less slippery on the sheets. This non-allergenic, synthetic rubber makes them perfect for those with latex allergies. Machine wash and air dry.

Anchor band mattress pad
This popular waterproof anchor band pad covers the entire top mattress surface and stays in place with an elastic anchor band in each corner. Easy to put on and take off, it fits any depth mattress, including sofa beds or irregular shaped beds. Another great option for protecting your mattress!

We won the Blades Award!

Last night, The Bedwetting Store won the 2014 Miva Merchant Blades Award for “Most Compelling Story”. We were nominated for “Most Compelling Story”, along with four other ecommerce companies, because of our unique story about selling online and how we have achieved excellence in ecommerce.

To qualify for “Most Compelling Story,” the store must have had a unique and compelling story about how they got their start, and the obstacles that they overcame to turn their entrepreneurial dreams into reality. Other awards were given for Best Website of 2013, Best Feature, and Most Innovative Product.

Our story included the fact that our company was founded when I (as a pediatric nurse practitioner) saw patients and their families struggle with bedwetting. I soon learned that bedwetting alarms were the most effective treatment but there were few resources in the U.S. for families to buy the best products. We developed our first BedwettingStore website in 2001 and have continued to grow from there. We are now the largest retailer of bedwetting supplies in the country.

When to Treat Bedwetting

The best time to treat bedwetting is when it starts to become an issue. The good news is that bedwetting alarms are such an effective, non-medicinal way to end bedwetting that no family has to “wait until they outgrow it”. Waiting and doing nothing is old-school advice. Every child is different, so there is no absolute right time for every child.

When deciding on the right time, ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS:

Is your child around 6 years old and wetting most nights?
Most children have developed the ability to stay dry all night by this age. Some 5 year-olds are motivated to become dry and some 7 year olds are not. Primary bedwetting means that it has always been present and in most cases, the bladder and kidneys are perfectly normal.

Does your child make comments about wanting to be dry and not wear pull-ups to bed?
Children begin to notice that others their age no longer wear pull-ups or that a younger sibling or cousin can stay dry.

Is this a calm time without a lot of family stressors?
Some times are better for learning new behaviors than others. New babies, job changes, moves and marriage troubles can be stressful for any family. Wait until these things have smoothed out before attempting to work on nighttime dryness.

Is your child beginning to get invitations for sleepovers and camps?
Social activities with peers are important for any school aged child. Some children are easy going and are fine with wearing a pull-up for overnight activities. Others turn down every invitation until they are consistently dry.

Is your child reliably dry during the day and having daily bowel movements?
Daytime wetting and constipation in school aged children should be evaluated by your health care provider. You can be assured that infection, diabetes, and constipation are not contributing to the nighttime wetting.

If the answers to these questions are mostly YES, this may be the right time to discuss using a bedwetting alarm to sense the wetting and help your child put together that important brain-bladder connection.
