Finding Your Cure for Bedwetting


About Bedwetting

Bedwetting is also called nocturnal enuresis. It is experienced by tens of millions of children worldwide. Nearly 1 out of 4 five-year olds, 1 out of 5 seven-year olds, and 1 out of 20 children over the age of 10 have bedwetting problems.

Because millions of children have daytime urine control and still bed wet (nocturnal enuresis) it is a very common concern for parents. Bedwetting can adversely affect the child’s self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, quality of life, academic pursuits, and simple childhood activities, such as camps, sleepovers, etc. Most children will stop bedwetting after turning four or five, but it is really never too early to start helping a child master the skills of nighttime control. If your child is bedwetting, the time for action may be now. Certainly you can wait to see if the nighttime accidents decrease over time, since most children will eventually outgrow the problem. However, it is very difficult to predict when your child will master the art of nighttime urine control. PottyMD has excellent programs and ideas for overcoming bedwetting in children and adults.


The following are the more commonly used treatment options for bedwetting in children:

Waiting and outgrowing a bedwetting problem
Bedwetting alarm
Reward system
Waking the child to urinate
Limiting nighttime drinking
abnormal daytime bladder and bowel habits
Any combination of the above treatments
What Are The Best Treatments?

You Are NOT Alone

Parents should not feel responsible for their child’s bedwetting problem. Since we do not completely understand why some children wet and others do not, parents should be cautious when others make claims they can easily cure your child’s problem. Yes, there are good treatments available, but as a parent, you should understand all of the possible causes for why your child wets at night before pursuing potentially harmful and expensive treatments. Potty MD wishes to provide you with the education and tools that are needed to best treat your child’s bedwetting problem. Do not let others promise a “one treatment fits all” approach. Many times, children need different approaches to correct their bedwetting problem. If bed wetting were caused by the same problem in everyone, then only one treatment would be needed and everyone would be easily cured. Potty MD realizes that bedwetting is complex and difficult to treat in some children. We have developed different approaches and education to help correct most bed wetting problems.
