How to Help with Bedwetting

1. Encourage your child to go to the toilet regularly🚽

Make sure your child goes to the toilet 4-7 times a day, including right before bedtime.

2. Try to stop using pull-ups or nappies 🙀

Your child will think that it doesn't really matter if they pee in a nappy; it doesn't feel as wet as wet pyjamas. 


3. Use a washable bed pad 🛏

Choosing the right bedwetting mats is crucial. It's best to pick an allergy friendly, washable and comfortable one, like PeapodMats, so it doesn't disturb your little one's sleep. PeapodMats stay in place without straps and don't make rustling sounds, like some other brands on the market.

4. Be prepared 📋

Good preparation is key - lots of ready bed changes, washable bed pads and pyjamas.

5. Light the way to the toilet 💡

Make sure your child can get to the toilet by themselves at night. Night time potty training can take longer if your child is scared of the dark. Night-lights in their room, and on the way to the bathroom, can help.

6. Avoid drinks before bedtime 🥛

An empty bladder should help with a drier night.

7. Find out the reason for bedwetting

8. If bedwetting is caused by an anxiety, there are ways to help them. 

9. If bedwetting is associated with autism or Down Syndrome, it might take longer to get them dry through the night. 

How To Choose A Bedding Protection? 🛏

Glad you asked! There are a few things to consider:

1. Make sure it’s safe!

Many widely available mattress protectors/waterproof pads contain PVC which is linked to many serious illnesses, including asthma. PeapodMats don't! We use TPU which is a green alternative to PVC.

2. It has to be comfortable.

PVC mattress protectors are crinkly and uncomfortable. You need something that’s pleasant and soft to sleep on, especially because many children have very sensitive skin! PeapodMats are squishy soft and contain no annoying, rustly plastic.

3. It needs to stay in place all night.

To make sure your child is comfortable, and the bed is always protected, your mattress protector need to stay put, all night long. PeapodMats have a brushed polyester base which grabs on to your sheets and won't budge, even without straps!

4. It should be absorbent.

You need a product that absorbs wee fast! The last thing you want is your little one sitting in a puddle of wee. PeapodMats safely absorb over 1 litre/6 cups of liquid. To compare: the adult bladder can hold up to 2 cups of urine at one time.

5. It should be easy to change and quick drying.

PeapodMats are very easy to look after and they dry fast! It’s as easy as looking after a terry cotton towel but with all the above benefits!

I bought the large one for when my grandaughter came out of nappies, she is a fidgety sleeper and this has not move. I now have a second one for her little sister both are excellent. Saves my mattresses on new bed and stay in place for a comfortable sleep. Can’t Recommend enough. Brilliant!

Peapods are an absolute life saver. I have both the large and the medium.
With a urostomy it’s inevitable there will be leaks; just a fact of life.
Having one of these on the bed does away with the stress of airing the mattress etc when “a big one” happens.
It doesn’t feel clinical and thankfully doesn’t give that horrible sweaty feeling others do.
Amazing amazing amazing!

Hi GG, it's great to hear that you're happy with PeapodMats and that they take the stress away for you. Thank you for a great review. All the best, Team JOIZI

Absolutely incredible! We used to buy at least 2-3 new mattresses a year! This magical matt has saved us so much money. Never leaks and lovely soft towel texture. Highly recommend for mummy's or adults with incontinence issues.

Hi Aimee, thank you for your lovely review and recommending PeapodMats to others! It's great to hear that PeapodMat helped you save money on mattresses and you love its leakproof qualities! All the best, Team JOIZI

I purchased 2 of the medium sized Peapods (after a personal recommendation and then reading the excellent reviews) for my partners bed, she has incontinence due to early onset dementia. I am generally pleased with their performance and they have made life easier in this situation. However, usually a small amount of urine does pass through the Peapod with the result that I back it up with two layers of normal towels underneath to absorb this small excess. This system works well and the bed sheet always seems to be dry. It is for this reason that I have given 4 stars.
I would still say that they are worth the cost, obviously I alternate the two Peapods each night and am thinking of getting a third one as extra backup.

Hi David, thank you so much for your review and your lovely words about PeapodMats! Because PeapodMats are breathable (but leak proof) the water from urine may evaporate, causing the sheet underneath to feel cool to touch and giving it a damp feeling. Please also be advised that we generally recommend large size of PeapodMats for adults. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at hello@joizi.com.

After doing loads of research, we purchased a medium sized PeapodMat for my son who is still in pull-ups at night age 5 and a half! We're two nights in and there have been accidents both nights but the mat has worked - it didn't move around in the night and the sheet underneath remained dry so the matress is well-protected.

Hi Hannah, thank you for a great review. We're so happy to hear that PeapodMat has protected your little one's bed so well and stays in place all night. We wish you and your family all the best, Team JOIZI
