We’re DryNites® Ambassadors

It’s been just over a year since we started our potty training with Olly. It was a slow start but by Christmas 2015, he was dry throughout the day with only the occasional accident to contend with. We were really pleased with how well he handled it and he’s been wearing big boy pants ever since.

Night times however are a different story and it’s now time to tackle keeping Olly dry throughout the night. Luckily for us, DryNites® are giving us a helping hand and over the next six months we’ll be working with them as their ambassadors to build Olly’s confidence and help him overcome the bedwetting stage.


Like potty training, the bedwetting phase can be quite daunting for first time parents like me. However, bedwetting is all part of growing up and it’s estimated that it affects more than 900,000 children and young people in the UK. Did you know that one in four children wet the bed at the age of four? Olly is only three so there’s still plenty of time for us to tackle this phase and with DryNites® tools and knowledge hopefully we’ll be able to raise Olly’s confidence and overcome it.

Over the next few months we’ll be using the ConfidentNites® guide (available at www.drynites.co.uk) for helpful advice and we’ll be using DryNites® pyjama pants at bedtimes. The DryNites® pyjama pants are really absorbent and with their stretchy sides, they’re easy for children to take them on and off like they do with their underwear. Olly thinks they’re really cool and is loving the Marvel graphics on the front. Whereas from a practical Mum point of view, I’m loving the discreet protection that lets Olly feel all grown up and like a big boy as he goes to sleep.

Follow our journey over the next few months as we prepare to tackle the bedwetting phase head on. We’ll also be vlogging our journey too (which is both scary and exciting for me) but as ever, we’ll be keeping it real and hopefully we’ll be having dry nights soon!

    Oh that must be a really difficult thing to work through, I hope you get on well with it and it’s soon sorted. Three seems very young to have to hold themselves all night doesn’t it? It was a bit different for us, because we used cloth nappies and I’ve heard potty training and night-time training is a bit easier with those, because they feel the wet rather than it being removed straight away by the disposable ones. We just took the nappy away at night when my eldest was always clean in the morning. I wont be in a rush to train my youngest either, they’ll get there in their own time.

    Harry took a while to potty train too but I am so glad we are now passed that stage, here’s to the next journey together.

I'd love to hear from you
