Bedwetting in small kids are normal for we are all aware that once they get potty trained and when they age they will learn to make use the bathroom. But when older kids are still wetting their beds then it could be alarming. This may get parents confused and the kids may also feel embarrassed. In order to stop the said behavior, you must know what the causes of bed wetting are.
Nocturnal enuresis is the medical term for bedwetting. Compared to girls, boys are highly susceptible for this condition. There are many reasons why children wet their beds like small bladder or maturity of the bladder control mechanism. If these things are the reasons of your child’s behavior then his condition is called primary enuresis. But, if your child already stops peeing on his bed yet somehow began to pee again, then it is called secondary enuresis and is often caused by stress, juvenile diabetes and trauma.
One of the many ways to help your child stop from bedwetting is to prohibit him from taking in any fluid before he goes to bed. In this manner, he will sleep with fluid-free bladder.
Another means of helping your child stop bedwetting is to use bed wetting alarm system. This is a tool that detects moisture and is placed inside the child’s underwear. When the device starts to trace moisture, it will sound an alarm or vibrate which will wake up the child.
To deal with bedwetting, you can train your child to wake up sometime during the night to pee. To not create much inconvenience on his part, see to it that the distance of the bathroom and his room is not far and the hallways leading to it is illuminated so that he won’t feel scared.
These are some of the things you can do to address the problem of bedwetting. While doing these, do not expect the results to come out instantly. Also, avoid punishing your child when he wets his bed for it can damage his self-esteem.
