    During the last year my son has been infatuated with his Willy ! This does not bother me as he usually plays with it whilst in bed. What is getting me (and him ) down , is that this process includes pushing his pad lower at the front and making his pad useless during the night. Every morning he and his bed are soaked. I have to wash him and his bedding every day. 
    Any ideas ? Have tried man size popper vests but they don't stop the fiddling / leaking.  Help. It,s getting me down

    Hi Itzyglitzy,

    Have you seen the community tips about toileting? There's some good ideas and solutions provided by parents and carers.

    You can also get some advice from ERIC The Children's Bowel and Bladder charity. http://www.eric.org.uk/

    I hope this helps and hopefully some of our community members will be able to join in with this post and share some ideas with you.

    Best wishes
    Debbie
