did all family members know you wore diapers plasticpants for bedwetting

plasticpan Community Member January 09, 2008
  • did all your family members know you wet the bed and did they know you wore diapers plasticpants to bed.My immediate family knew as you dont or cant hide things like thatand i think it helps.You dont have to be secretive and hide plasticpants which at home is near impossible. Did anyone have problems with others like bros sisters teasing them for wearing diapers .Just wondered.I was not the only bedwetter in my family so it was not a problem as plasticpants were worn.

He didn't say anything because he didn't have to. He just looked at me and held back the laughing. Fortunately he never brought it up again. I was allowed to stop wearing the diapers when I turned 15 but then had to deal with the nightly flooded bed. It really sucked. Now that I'm older I really don't care about having to wear diapers to bed, it makes the issue much more controlled

My best friend knows about my bedwetting and that I have to wear nappies, so i often sleep over at his house.

    When using cloth diapers and plastic pants for an older bedwetter, it is absolutely necessary to tell the bedwetters siblings that teasing is absolutely out of the question.  While the bedwetters siblings will see the cloth diapers after they are washed and plastic pants hanging to dry, they must be taught to respectthe fact that the bedwetter needs to be able to get a good nights sleep just like them and so that is why diapers and plastic pants are worn to bed.  Really that simple.

    When I get my bedwetter ready for bed, it's a private time for the 2 of us as the diapers and plastic pants go on.

      Drs are more genned up on the subject However there are still a few parents whom feel it is lazyness and they do need to be educated to the fact that in 99.99.5% of the time it is NOT Lazyness  no-one is saying that on the very rare occasion you may get a child whom is seeking attention May do it on purpose! but that is Very Very Rare . so parents Please don't automatically assume it is Lazyness unless you have concrete evidence that it is it could be what is called Secondary Enuresis which means that through trauma the Child whom had previously been dry at night suddenly starts wetting the bed or his or her pants! then there is probably a medical reason have it checked out by your Physician.

    When my parents first put me back into diapers when I was 7 my little sister(5) and brother(2) were still in diapers at night. Until I was about 10 in the summer all I wore before bed was a diaper and a tshirt and my siblings wore thier underwear and tshirts. It was deffinately not a secret but it was a bit uncomfortable when I got to be 12 or 13.

    Wearing diapers for bedwetting is a lot more common then people may realize.  Families generally try to keep the issue quiet so as to help the bedwetter be as comfortable as possible.  Teasing and name calling are generally not permitted.  The diapers and plastic pants themselves are kept out of sight and in the morning when the plastic pants are rinsed and hung to dry they are hung inside the shower with the curtain closed or in the downstairs laundry room and once dry should be taken down and put away whenever possible.  I sat for 2 families that had bedwetters in 1 family there were 2 that wore diapers and plastic pants to bed, the other 2 children did not.  I was never aware of any teasing or anything like that.   The other family had 3 kids and 1 wore diapers and plastic pants in bed the other 2 supported the bedwetter all they could.

    To me common sense has to dictate in circumstances such as this.

      It was common knowledge in our home. Throughout the warmer seasons of the year our children whether they were trained or not trained, always ran around the house wearing nothing but rubber pants and diapers.

       

      Tormenting, teasing, snickering, or anything else along those lines was not tolerated on any level. I drew a hard stance over such a thing, and dealt with any offenders with a strict and heavy hand.

       

      It's not about embarrassment, shame, or humiliation, it's about helping to get a child through the night comfortably. I kept nothing hidden as far as the diapers went. Everything in the way of the diapers, the rubber pants, the pins, and even the diaper pail remained out in the open and in plain view for all to see, just as if we still had a baby wearing diapers in the home.

       

      Come night-time I quietly took the child or children to their rooms, undressed them, quickly changed them into diapers, and all was said and done. It was always done in a nonchalant manner.

       

      I believe the danger occurs when a mother or parent hides such attire from the child in question, or from other members in the family. This action promotes the belief that diapers are a no-no in a child's eyes, which in turn hightens a child's level of discomfort, creating problems such as withdrawl and acting out. Fits, tantrums, etc.

       

      Until next time, Barb.

      Also if they are running around the house wearing nothing but diapers and rubber pants, which I assume means they are not just diapered at bed time does that mean they sometimes have to get their diapers changed before they finally go to bed.

      Generally diapers and rubber pants go on about half hour before bedtime.  Once the kids have them on they are encouraged to play quietly or watch TV until it's time to get into bed.

      As for the diaperings, there are various ways it can be done.  With the child standing, fold the diapers they way you normally do pull them between the legs, pin them and help or have the child put the rubber pants on.  You may also have the child lie on the bed, lay the diapers out and have the child lay down on them, pin them and put the rubber pants on.  Using baby powder in all cases is up to the individual parents, some bedwetters need it for rash protection and that is usually cornstarch baby powder.

      Older bedwetters may want to do this for themselves and in private.  They can be shown how to fold and pin the diapers and then they put the rubber pants on and to make sure that the diapers are completely covered.  Othe bedwetters wear the diapers inside of their underpants and don't need pins, they take the folded diapers and put them in their underpants and they pull the rubber pants up over the underwear and diapers.

      Other kids in the family need to be told that they are not to tease the bedwetter and if they do there will be punishment.

My mother made sure the issue was well out in the open and that nothing ws ever made of it. I was very comfortable getting diapered wherever my mom chose to diaper me and would on every warm night just walk around in my diapers with a t-shirt on. By age 13-14 I started covering up more but never had any problems with family members as they all treated it as just a natural "health" challenge. I did not openly tell friends about it though even though 2 of my best friends knew because of nights they spent at my house. Never a big deal. I'm in my 40s now and have no trouble talking to anyone I know about why I wear diapers to bed.
