Regular Bedwetting

Bedwetting is nobody’s fault. It’s a common condition which will usually go away by itself. Remember, your child wants to wake up dry just as much as you

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.
