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!

    2 of ours wet the bed and I use cloth diapers and plastic pants on them. They are 9 and 7 years old and wet every night. I have found that it is much easier to use the cloth diaper plastic pants as it is very easy to add another diaper if they seem to need extra padding. When they wake up mornings the bed clothes are dry because the plastic pants have done their work.

    I am the mom of two beautiful daughters,ages 13 and 12,[yes,a year apart!] and i use cloth diapers and rubberpants on them for special occasions and holidays.For easter,i buy them cute poofy easter dresses with lace socks and white shoes and put the diapers and rubberpants on both of them when i dress them easter morning. For christmas,i dress them in their christmas dresses in the late afternoon on christmas eve and put white tights over their diapers and rubberpants.After late church service on christmas eve,i put fresh cloth diapers on them and they wear the diapers and rubberpants to bed,and then under their dresses christmas day.They both were flowergirls in two weddings this past summer and wore the diapers and rubberpants under their flowergirl dresses.

      Our daughter is 14 and will be finially making her First Communion on may 20th with the 2nd graders in the class of 2018.She all ready has her communion dress and veil with the lace anklets and the white shoes bought.Last week the husband and i informed her that she is going to wear a cloth diaper and rubberpants like the little girls do,under her dress with a tee shirt as her top.She was somewhat surprised,but accepted it.I now have the cloth diaper made and bought the diaper pins to pin it on her with and got the white adult size rubberpants from a website and her tee shirt from Target.The only other older girl in the class is 15 and the daughter and i were talking to her and her mom after class last week and her mom told us that she is doing the cloth diaper and rubberpants on her daughter also,so my daughter feels better knowing the other girl will be wearing them also.

    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.

        Yeah right never heard such nonsense in my life you adopted a 14 yr old and the child is perfectly
        Ok and you put her in diapers and plastic pants 24/7!
        Come off it if the child was mentally challenged and
        Or physically challenged I could understand it!.
        But you said you adopted a 14 yr old girl and put her in diapers 24/7
        That is unbelievable, why? Is she mentally challeged or physically challenged ?
        If not then perhaps you need a visit frop child protective services as that is a form of abuse
