my daughter is 12 and has urinary incontinence at night due to Diabetes. She has been invited to a sleepover with some of her friends, and is obviously worried about leaking. Do you have any tips on how I can help her stay discreet/avoid leakages?
I understand that this would be difficult for her, as leaks will likely make her self-conscious. There are, however, a number of things you can do to help her.
Ensure she brings her own sleeping bag, rather than use someone else’s. You can place a discreet bed pad or liner inside the sleeping bag for extra protection.
You can ask a Doctor about medication just for the sleepover. Ensure she takes this a few days before the sleepover to ensure there is no side effects.
Is she already sorted with a protective product? Let me know if you require any more tips.
