About Child Bedwetting

Bed-wetting is common in children under the age of six. Bed-wetting usually affects more boys than girls. In fact, twice as many boys are affected by bed-wetting than girls are. It can cause severe embarrassment to the child and can also be a source of stress for the child and their families.

What causes bed-wetting?
Experts suspect that some children may take longer to learn to control their bladders. Medical problems are rarely the cause of bed-wetting. Genetic factors play a more significant role than medical factors do.

What can be done?
Babies certainly aren’t born with the ability to control their bladders. As children get older, they begin to recognize when their bladder feels full. Usually, children learn to control their bladders during the day by the time they are 3 years old. Most times, children are also dry at night by the time they go to school. If isn’t considered abnormal if your child isn’t dry every night until they are about 5 years old.

Experts recommend that you seek help if your child is still wetting the bed after the age of seven or eight. If your child wets the bed often before this age, you might also want to seek help. You will also want to see a medical professional if your child has been regularly dry at night and then starts to wet the bed. If wetting the bed is causing you or your child (or any other member of your family) distress, you need to seek help.

Bed-wetting is a problem that can be taken care of with the proper help. For instance, my little sister wet the bed until she was quite old. When my parents finally took her to the doctor, they discovered that she had a medical condition that prevented her from waking up when she had to go to the bathroom. This condition was easily treated with medication. The medication was such an easy fix for a problem that had caused my sister and my parents so much grief.

There is a wide array of bed-wetting treatments. Bladder training programs have proven to be successful. These programs are supervised by a doctor and teach the child good bladder habits. These programs also “train” the bladder to hold more urine. Bed-wetting alarms are placed in the child’s bed or under the child. As soon as the alarm is triggered by urine, it wakes the child up. Behavioral techniques have also been successful. These techniques encourage the child to stay dry by offereing rewards or treats. Medication is sometimes used to help prevent bedwetting. These medications need to be prescribed by your doctor. You can also try other home and herbal bed wetting remedies.
