Bedwetting Kids

Some things you should know about Bedwetting Kids.

It is true, the majority of kids are trained to go to the bathroom when they are three or four years old. However, even though most of these children are potty trained, many of them wet the bed at night. This is medically referred to as nocturnal enuresis.

Kids can be Cruel. Bed wetting cruelty is very stressful for children. So it’s very important to be kind and encourage your child to work as a team to beat enuresis.

Bedwetting is very difficult and embarrassing for your son or daughter. Many school children don’t understand the problem fully and can be quite cruel to your child. We as parents need to show our children kindness and support to beat this problem together.

How common is it to wet the bed?
Even when these kids reach the age of six or eight years old, about 8 percent still have bedwetting problems. Research shows that enuresis affects boys more than girls. Also, there is some proof of genetic transfer since it is more likely for the child to wet the bed if one or both parents were bedwetters.

Why does my child wet their bed?
Different things cause enuresis. It could be a physical problem such as a small bladder. So the child cannot hold their urine during sleep and end up urinating in the bed. Studies show that at times of stress, people are more prone to wetting their bed.
Contrary to belief, it is very rarely caused by a disease (which is actually good news because that means that enuresis is easier to treat.)

Are there levels of bedwetters?
Yes, they are categorized as primary or secondary. Primary are children who always wet the bed and never have dry nights. Secondary are bedwetting kids who are currently wetting, but had been dry in the past 3 to 6 months.

Is there a solution?
Yes. One of the most successful treatments is the use of a bed wetting alarm. They have an overall success rate of over 70%.
So that is the first place to start for the majority of families.
