Regular Bedwetting

by | Kids and Teens Health, Videos


If regular bedwetting beyond the age of five is becoming an issue, there are a number of things you can try to help your child ease the problem.

You can use a nightlight to help your child find their way to the toilet. You should encourage them to have a wee before bed. Installing a moisture-sensitive alarm will wake your child when they start to wet themselves, this way, they can finish off in the toilet. Over time, this can lead to an awareness of a full bladder when sleeping and avoid bedwetting.

Keeping a record of dry nights is a good way to motivate your child too, especially if they come with rewards. Bedwetting is nobody’s fault. It’s a common condition that will usually go away by itself. Remember, your child wants to wake up dry just as much as you.
