If you’re a mom, chances are at some point you’ve been up all night changing diapers. Newborns can wet the bed frequently, and while it can be frustrating, there are things you can do to help reduce the number of times it happens. In this post, we’ll talk about a few methods that have been shown to be effective in reducing bedwetting in babies. So if you’re struggling with late-night diaper changes, read on for some tips that might help!
Understand why baby wet nights happen
It’s completely normal for your baby to have the odd wet night, even after they’ve been dry for a while. There are lots of reasons why baby wet nights happen. And it’s usually nothing to worry about. For example, your baby might be going through a growth spurt or teething, which can lead to increased urine production. Or if your baby has a cold or flu, this can also lead to more frequent wet nights as their little nose gets blocked and they can’t breathe properly during the night. Don’t worry if your baby has the odd wet night. It’s completely normal and usually nothing to worry about. Just make sure you’ve got plenty of clean diapers on hand so you’re prepared!
Identify the signs and take steps to help your baby stop wetting the bed
One of the main signs that your baby is wetting the bed is if they have diapers that are too small. This is because when babies grow, their diapers can’t hold all of the urine and it leaks out. If your baby’s diapers are constantly full or leaked, it’s a good idea to try a larger size. Another reason for that happening is if they’re drinking more fluids than usual. This could be milk, formula, juices or water. If you notice that your baby is having more fluids than usual, it’s a good idea to check their nappy regularly to see if it can hold for the night.
Wetting the bed is a common problem for babies. But it can be easily managed. By understanding why baby wet nights happen and identifying the signs that your baby is wetting the bed, you can take steps to help your little one have fewer leaks. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to your pediatrician.
