Teens and Bed-Wetting : Dealing With Diapers and Plastic Pants

By Colin Ellison

Being a teenager can be a stressful time in life. There’s the pressure of fitting in,preparing to get into college,going to prom,learning to drive. Now imagine if you also had to tell someone of the opposite sex that you have to wear diapers and plastic pants because you still wet the bed?

Teenagers can be very cruel when it comes to people being different. I think it’s important for teenagers to be able to talk to other people with similar problems. There are many online support groups for various health problems and teenagers suffering from bed-wetting should take advantage of the many online health resources.

You can also start an online support group if you want. Many older children,adolescents,teenagers,and adults deal with bed-wetting every night so there are a lot of people who would be interested if you do decide to start a bed-wetting support group.

I think it would help if teenage celebrities(as well as adult celebrities) started talking about subjects such as bed-wetting-it would make it less taboo.

I also think it’s important to be able to confide in people about this problem-whether a family member or relative,a teacher,or friend. Sometimes talking to people helps a great deal.. It’s important to be able to gauge the depth and quality of a person’s friendship. There are some people who are real compassionate and understanding. These people are very accepting of other people’s problems and they’re easy to confide in. If you feel you have friends of this nature and if you’re having difficulty coming to terms with wearing diapers to bed then you might want to consider discussing this with them. It’s important to remember one thing-there are plenty of people of all ages who wet the bed so the next time you’re getting ready for bed and putting on your diapers and plastic pants keep this in mind!

    To Majory-My daughter is 15 and a bedwetter and we use regular cloth pin on diapers with adult size rubberpants on her at night.I use the Gerber flat cloth diapers with the gerber diaper pins and pin the diapers on her before bedtime then put the adult size rubberpants on over them.Now that the cold weather is here,she wears a footed blanket sleeper over the diapers and rubberpants and she looks so cute with the blanket sleeper on and the diapers and rubberpants bulging out underneat it! the rubberpants fit her blousy and crinkle under the sleeper.To my surprise,she actually admitted that she kind of likes feeling like a baby in the diapers,rubberpants and blanket sleeper!

      To marjory and clarice-We have a new adopted 14 year old daughter who we got the first part of december,2016 and she is in cloth diapers and rubberpants 24/7.she wanted to start over as a baby,so we put her into the cloth diapers and rubberpants instead of didposables.She wears tee shirts most of the time with her diapers and uses a pacifier and drinks from a bottle.
