Sorry for the long wait in between these posts. The combination of being out-of-town for the 4th of July, being otherwise busy, and not hitting any big milestones has led me to kind of put this blog off to the side for nearly the last month. Over this time, I can’t say I’ve been the best at keeping up with my training. While I have worn to bed every-night (save one), I haven really been setting my alarms on any sort of regular basis. I’ve probably been setting my alarm about once every two days which is, well, bad. Good news is that I’m still waking up in the middle of the night more often than I did before, but not setting the alarm is quite a dangerous precedent to set.
Other than that, this last month has given me my first few tastes of one downside of bedwetting – leaks. It’s actually kind of funny. After going a full month with no issues, it seems like at least once each of the past few weeks I’ve had at least one not-insignificant leaks. I can’t pretend that some of these weren’t my fault. At least twice, I leaked because I had already wet a few times, and I should have changed before bed. Some other times were just unfortunate, like leaking out the top/side of a new(ish) diaper while laying on my back, or somehow getting a tiny hole in the front plastic of my diaper and leaking straight out of it on the first wetting (I seriously have no idea how this one happened). Perhaps the worst leak I had was the first time I used my cloth diapers. I used a night-time terry cloth diaper with a cloth stuffer, and just leaked everywhere out the legband of my plastic pants on the first wetting. I’m guessing this is an issue with my plastic pants being too loose, or me not using the best fold for night-time protection, but if anyone has any suggestions on how to mitigate these issues, please share. Luckily, my bed pad did help contain these leaks, so my mattress is still pretty clean, but they are something I will have to grow somewhat accustomed to.
Anyway, hopefully just writing this blog post helps reinvigorate my will to train. Hopefully I can reach some sort of milestone before the next update. Until then, as always, please feel free to leave a comment here or through the header at the top of the page, and as always, stay padded.
