Bedwetting Underwear

They go by many names: nighttime underpants, bedwetting diapers, bedwetting underwear, nighttime underwear. Whatever you want to call them, the truth is simple — they are one the most reliable ways to prevent your child from waking up to wet sheets. Nighttime Underwear like Ninjamas are designed to look like the real thing to help kids feel more comfortable and reduce your child’s stress about waking up to a wet bed. Nighttime underpants aren’t a magical fix to your kid’s bladder control problems, but they do have several immediate physical benefits. Using bedwetting underwear helps keep your child’s skin and the sheets dry overnight. Clean-up is easier (music to your ears, we know) as each pair of bedwetting underwear can be thrown out after use, so you don’t have to worry about washing the sheets each morning. Nighttime underwear can also help you be the hero of your child’s next sleepover or trip to summer camp by giving your child a stealthy nighttime sidekick. Ninjamas aren’t visible under PJs and are easy to throw away discreetly. They are the ultimate secret weapon, and a way for your child to enjoy important childhood moments with confidence. Ninjamas Nighttime Underwear are available in boys’ and girls’ sizes S/M and L/XL. Before purchasing Ninjamas, make sure to check your kid’s weight. Size S/M fits children between 38-65 lbs, and size L/XL fits children between 64-125 lbs. For more Ninjamas information, check out our FAQs section.

Bedwetting Sheets & Pads

Ninjamas and other bedwetting underpants are an amazing wearable bedwetting solution, but there are other tools you can use at the same time to give your child even more comfort. Some of our favorite nighttime partners in wetness protection are bedwetting pads (also known as bedwetting mats) and sheets. You might remember these from your own childhood. They are waterproof and breathable covers that are placed over the mattress, either over or under the fitted sheet, to absorb accidents during the night. Bedwetting sheets create a reliable, reusable barrier for your child’s mattress, and disposable bedwetting pads are portable travel buddies for things like summer camp or a trip to grandma’s. None of these products stop or prevent bedwetting, but they can make the clean-up easier while protecting your child’s mattress (and the sanctity of your nighttime routine).

Bedwetting Alarms

Another great nighttime tool — bedwetting alarms. These nifty devices typically come in the form of pads that go under the fitted sheet or body-worn sensors that attach to your child’s clothes. At the first sign of wetness, they send a signal that wakes your child up. The goal is to help stop an accident in progress and prevent a stressful overnight clean-up operation. Bedwetting alarms are a nice bladder development coach too – they can help train the link between your child’s brain and bladder so they eventually wake up by themselves when they have an urge to pee.
