How to Help a Child Stop Wetting the Bed


How to Help a Child Stop Wetting the Bed. When your child can’t control their bladder
at night, it’s frustrating for both of you. Here’s how to fix the problem. You will need Limited evening fluids Moisture
alarm Medical evaluation (optional) Stool softener (optional) and medication (optional). Step 1. Don’t be concerned if your child has an occasional
accident; most children do until they’re five or six years old. For three out of four kids, either a parent
or close relative also wet the bed in childhood. See a doctor if the bed-wetting started long
after toilet training or is accompanied by painful urination, unusual thirst, pink urine,
or snoring. Step 2. Limit evening fluids — particularly caffeinated
drinks, which cause increased urination. Eight ounces of liquid should be enough after
5 p.m., unless your child engages in sports or other activities that would require more
hydration. Speak to your doctor about what’s appropriate
for your child. Step 3. Try a moisture alarm — a small device that
connects to a moisture-sensitive pad on your child’s pajamas or bedding. When the pad senses moisture, the alarm goes
off, conditioning your child to wake up when they need to urinate. Allow three months or more for the alarm to
eliminate your child’s bed-wetting problem. For the alarm to be effective, parents have
to take an active role by waking up with their child — or waking their child up — when
the alarm goes off. Step 4. If your child doesn’t have regular bowel movements,
give them more high-fiber foods. Chronic constipation can contribute to bed-wetting
by reducing bladder capacity. If dietary changes don’t work, ask your doctor
about giving them an over-the-counter stool softener. Step 5. If the bed-wetting isn’t caused by a medical
condition and at-home efforts have failed, ask your doctor if medication is in order. There are drugs that can help reduce bed-wetting
by either increasing bladder capacity or limiting urine production at night. They all have side effects, however, and should
only be considered as a last resort. Did you know Bed-wetting is more common in
boys than girls.

  20. Oh my God this video reminds me of my brother can't stop peeing the bed then I told my mom we got bunk beds for me and my brother I told my mom first we need to potty train him if I get pee on my face I will literally move out

  21. I stopped at 6 When I was 5 I wet the bed so one night I sat on the toilet and fell asleep the next morning I DIDNโ€™T EVEN GET WET AND THE TOLET WAS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE TO SLEEP ON

  22. (Sometimes) I have to lay on a little blanket that my aunt made before I was born because that way I can't wet the bed I've never wetted the bed with that blanket but they only make those fluff inside it in China sorry parents

  23. I might invest in that moisture alarm. My little guy is 9 and I hate how embarrassed he gets when he wets the bed.

  24. I don't get why everybody is so serious, I did it until I was five and my mom didn't give any fricks about no medicine, I mean I get it if you're still doing over the age of 8 though

  25. my mom keeps being angry to me cos i made a bed wetting and i am 10 yrs old like what why pls if anyone can help me i would appreciate it —– i mean i know it already Its just because of medicines at nigt right??

  26. Speak to your doctor is an order! Keep it for yourself. Adults donโ€™t need orders just information. Plus U.S. doctors are so ignorant going to them is a waste of time and money.

  27. I donโ€™t pee myself but for some reason I canโ€™t go to sleep because Iโ€™m getting up to per every 3 minutes
