Is It Normal For A Teenage Girl To Wear A Diaper For Bedwetting?

If she is wetting the bed, then wearing a diaper is a sensible action to take to avoid mess. Whether it is 'normal' is obviously a subjective question. It is quite common for bedwetting to continue into the early teens. With older children, pull-ups or 'Goodnites' are the most common disposable night time garments because they are less likely to cause embarrassment since they look less like diapers. They are not necessarily entirely suitable if the child is having heavier bedwetting problems however, and so sometimes disposable diapers are the best option.

Maybe it is also worth looking in to the underlying reasons, if any, that are causing your child's bedtime incontinence. At the same time, you shouldn't let the stigma of diapers only being associated with babies cause a worse situation which would come about through not wearing them. The laundry required each day and emotional stress through loss of sleep to the child is far more damaging than sticking to an idea that the child is 'too old' or this is not 'normal'.

For older children, these garments are usually described differently to diapers, presumably because of the stigma mentioned above. They will be found in the store as disposable briefs, they have tabs for fastening with elastic leg straps to stop leakage.

Yes it is,I know of a few teen girls who are bedwetters and they all wear a diaper and plastic pants to bed every night.I have been told that it is more common and appropriate for teen girls to wear the cloth diapers and plastic pants for bedwetting than it is for boys.many parents of teen daughters require them to wear cloth diapers and plastic pants for bedwetting.

Bed-wetting is not uncommon and if a diaper is the most comfortable option then go for it!

If she has a problem with bed wetting, then it's a good management tool.  Let her do it and don't worry about it.

Most teenagers do not have bed wetting problems. My daughter is 16 and she still has a bed wetting problem. She doesnt wet every night, but she does ocasionally, we have taken her to the doctor she doesnt have a medical problem or a bladder infection. The doctor said she will probablly grow out of it, but that there is a slight chance she won't. She wears youth night time diapers. She has wet the bed for almost her whole life and she wore diapers until she was 10 and then she would just was her own sheets but she now has morning and after school activities and she doesnt have time to wash them so, after much disscusion my husband and I decided youth diapers are what she needs. She refused to wear them but I put them on for her and then she would do it themselves.

It was normal for me, and still is. I don't have to wear for bedwetting all the time now. But I got attached to wearing diapers as a little girl and developed a fetish for them.
