1- Limit drinks three hours prior to bed. (This is a great tip for all ages… I suggest this in my night-time potty training post, too.) If he has to have a drink, I only allow milk, because it doesn’t seem to go through him as quickly. If your child is going to a sleepover, simply explain to your child why he should not have a drink before bed (increases chance of accident), even if everyone else has something. Tell him to simply say “No, thank you. I’m not thirsty.”
5- Pack extra clothing & a plastic bag, just in case. Tell them what to do (go to the bathroom, change, put your other clothes in the bag and stick them into your sleepover bag).
6- Have a code word. If your child does have an accident or gets nervous, give them a code word to use (I always had one). Let them call you or send you a text, if they have your phone or took an iPod, using the code word. This word would be discreetly used in a sentence like “It is looking very FOGGY mom.” You would hear that & know that your child was ready to be picked up ASAP.
