Hi everyone. I am new here and looking for some advice or to hear from someone who may have been in a similar position.
We have a son who has just turned 8 and has never had a dry night. We have tied everything we can think of, doctors, alarms, lifting, reduction in fluid intake in the evening and nothing helps. The only thing we haven't done and am not comfortable with is the medication side.
The issue we have is that he is a very heavy sleeper and seems to have a very high urine output in the night so he soaks through his pull-ups every night. It's stressing us all out having to strip beds, change bedmats and wash pyjamas every day. I am exhausted! On top of that we are going away on holiday which always causes us added stress regarding wet hotel beds, etc.
Someone sent me a link to Eric and also to a company called everynappy who both seem to offer more absorbent and larger sized products. Which all sound great but they are more of a nappy than a pull-up. To be honest I am not completely sure that he doesn't just see the pull-ups as nappies anyway, so I am not sure how big of an issue it is.
So I feel like I don't know what I should do. On one hand I genuinely think that at the moment he probably does need them and I am a little ashamed to say I find the prospect of his bed and pyjamas staying dry to be so very appealing at the moment. But on the other hand I feel like a selfish and bad parent for putting him back in nappies.
So sorry to bore everyone but I am looking for any help or advice from anyone really. But also anyone who may have been in a similar situation.
