Hiya, I'm a 28 y/o with two kids, aged 4 and 19 months. I've posted yesterday about the incontinence episodes I have been having.
One issue is that at the moment I'm wetting the bed almost every night and, although I'm trying to get an appt with my GP, I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for the meantime on how to cope with it. I'm using a mattress pad and I'm wearing a Tena Ladies Maxi Night pad to bed.
This is last night, which is typical for me over the last month or so.
- 11pm: went to the loo and went to bed, having drunk half a glass of still water about an hour before.
- 2am: set the alarm so that I could go to the loo, woke up already wet through. Changed. Set alarm for 5am.
- 4.45am: woke up needing to pee. Got to the loo in time.
- 6.15am: woke up needing to pee, couldn't hold it in till I got to the loo.
Is there a better routine I could try? Any products that might work better than what I'm using? I'm absolutely knackered from lack of sleep due to this and my two kids' various needs during the night! I just feel a bit pathetic that my 4 y/o can have a dry night but I can't!
