My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.
Last night while watching the FOX Sunday night lineup, I saw a commercial for Goodnites Diapers. These diapers were for 12 year old kids who wet the bed. The whole theme of the commercial was along the line of "Don't worry if you still wet the bed, just wear these diapers and you'll be fine!"
When a twelve year olf child still wets the bed, you need to fix the problem, not just slap a diaper on them! I have a particular interest in this as I was a bedwetter up until the age of 24. Okay, not 24, but 10 at least (I think). My point it, when I was wetting the bed, my biggest concern was how to stop, not how to sleep better through the night. I remember when I was finally able to STOP peeing while I slept, and it was a great day, much mo greater, I am sure, than having mom bring home a big fucking carton of teenager diapers!
Anyway, what ended up working for me was some electronics-laden jock-strap deally that would buzz real loud when pee closed the circuit between two electrodes. That woke my ass up when I started to pee, and within a week, I was cured. It was something like this, but a different brand.

I use something like that currently, but it's for a different type of fluid, and Kerri gets a remote control.

On a ridiculously serious note, this is a common problem that is often refractory to medical intervention. For a chronic bed-wetter, sleep-overs can be embarassing, these provide an alternative to Huggies (that don't fit). Most kids will "grow out" the problem, but can be pre-teens or teenagers before the flooding stops. I personally think this is God's way of getting even with all men for not having to have monthly cycles or give child birth.
