The occasional bed wetting accident is almost expected in younger children, but this doesn’t mean it’s any easier for the child to deal with. Both my girls were fully potty trained by 2, and my oldest didn’t have the need for extra night protection by age 3. Then something happened around age 4- she started sleeping heavier and longer, and would find herself awoken by wet clothing. It turns out, 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 suffer from bedwetting incidents. This was a little damaging to her self esteem. On those nights, she was quickly changed and either given fresh sheets or invited to sleep in my bed. In the morning she seemed stressed- confused by why she couldn’t wake herself up to go. My husband and I did all we could to reassure her- even I remember having accidents when I was her age. I don’t remember ever being so stressed about it, but I guess every child is different in regards to how they handle their emotions on such a delicate topic.
