- a level of tactile awareness - you need to be able to tell when you're sitting in a wet patch
- hormonal development - a full bladder creates a hormone message to the brain
- an understanding of what just happened or is about to happen (in the nappy area)
- a way to communicate their understanding by either words or actions
Plus I found out that night dryness is a completely different kettle of fish to day dryness - night wetting isn't considered a problem by the leading health officials until the child is between 5-7 years old. I'm not talking the occasional puddle in bed, I mean having to wear nappies every single night.
Am I the only one who had no idea?
I'd highly recommend checking out the remainder of the Baby Talk seminars (there is even one on sleeeeeeep!) or if that's not your sorta thing then UWA Extension have classes on everything from investing to beer tasting (Map Guy is interested in that one) and dancing.
If you think you need more than a two hour session you can contact Caroline's Angels directly through their website. In the fifteen minutes I was chatting with them after the seminar I got some fantastic tips to help Tricky sleep better and... THEY WORKED!
This is an unpaid review, however I did receive complimentary tickets to the Baby Talk series
