Night toilet training….in times of pandemic lockdown

March 31, 2020 2 min read

Night toilet training with a bedwetting alarm involves disruption to usual night-time routines, so is it a good thing to embark upon during a pandemic lockdown, when family stress levels may be higher than normal?

Well, perhaps not at the outset when everyone is having to adjust to working and being schooled at home. But, when the family has this sorted, there are some real advantages to using a bedwetting alarm at this time:

  1. It provides a goal to aim for when other goals may have had to be put aside;
  2. There is no pressure on morning routines to get to school and work, and with travel time removed this may allow extra sleep time, if required, to catch up with lost sleep when responding to the alarm;
  3. The whole family is around to support and encourage the bedwetter;
  4. With less distraction from after-school activities, there may be more time for the bedwetter to really focus on this task, with Mum and Dad’s help;
  5. You can ensure your child is drinking enough, and regularly, during the day which helps with bladder stretching so they can hold more urine during the night;
  6. If you introduce a Reward Programme, this is something positive for your child to focus on during an adverse time.

If you are able to take the chance now and gain from the advantages above, it could make a big difference to your child’s success in overcoming their bedwetting. Every cloud has a silver lining….could this be your child’s?

Good luck and stay safe.
