As some of you know, I cloth diaper. My son has been potty trained & in underwear since before he turned 2, but at 5 he is still wet on occasion at night, because he is a deep sleeper like I was. I wet the bed when I was a girl too... until I was 12. Even though folks don't talk much about it, bed wetting is more common than you think, and is nothing to be ashamed of. I was made to feel ashamed as a child, but all that did was make me feel terrible for something that was beyond my control. Did you know that...
- 15% of children still wet the bed at age 5 (that's one out of every 7 kindergartners!)
- 7 to 10% of children still wet the bed at age 7 (that's one out of every 10 2nd graders!)
- 3% of boys and 2% of girls still wet the bed at age 10
That is why I want to sing the praises of Daniel Creations! Karen custom made some cloth pull ups for me, and they are above and beyond what I wanted! The fabrics & quality are fantastic, and the measurements are exactly what I asked for (thanks, Karen!), and they are so soft. She even made them like a pocket diaper, with thick & absorbent inserts. My son would only need the smaller of the 2, but they snap together & would be enough absorbency for the even the heaviest of night wetters.
She makes all kinds of cloth diapers, baby accessories, and even reusable sandwich wraps, so I highly recommend checking out her Artfire shop!
