    Default AF and bed wetting

    Hoping the wise ones of BH can help. I am asking on behalf of a friend....

    Her daughter is 11 and started her first AF today. Daughter is a bed wetter (wears pull ups at night. Yes they have sought medical advice and tried everything drs have suggested to help stop before anyone asks). She woke up this morning in a hell of a mess and my friend isn't sure what to do at night while daughter has AF.

    Can anyone offer advice if you have been through this?

    Maybe a super pad inside the pull up. Or even go up a size.

    Bed wetting for teenagers if freaking hard and there is not much Dr's can do.

    The blue disposable sheets you get place under you when you have a baby are ideal. As too are bamboo mattress protector (Kylie brand) they can go straight on top of the sheet.

    There isn't really anything other than protecting the bed that can be done really. I doubt at that she she would go into a dry night or adult version but that is an option as well

    Eta: Oops I see she already has dry nights

    Thanks ladies.
    I asked mum (she went through it with my sister) and she said pad in the pull up as well.

    She wears the dry nights already (we just call them pull ups). Will let my friend know about the disposable sheets as well.

    The blues are from the chemist but dry nights also sell the pads for the bed.

    Km art do a cheap bed protector but a bamboo one would be better as dss said.
