5 Tips to better Manage Bedwetting - One Stop Bedwetting

5 Tips to Manage Bed-Wetting

Parents always have their child’s best interest at heart. So when it comes to bed-wetting, parents are often confused and stressed out about how to deal with the problem. Here are five tips to help you deal with your child’s bed-wetting in a positive and constructive way.

1. Creating a Don’t Ask,Don’t Tell Situation. Parents should always protect their child’s feelings. Don’t discuss your child’s bed-wetting with his or her peers or their parents or with close relatives. But its a good idea for them to help if need be. If you think speaking to a pediatrician or an uncle or aunt who was a bedwetter in their childhood might help, don’t hesitate. Make sure your child understands that it’s important to seek help.

2. Help your Child Wake Up. Many children dealing with bed-wetting are deep sleepers and don’t recognize the need to empty the bladder at night during sleep. Usually parents wake up their child to help them void at night. By doing this, it’s the parent who assumes the primary responsibility of waking up not the child. To stop bed-wetting it is important that your child recognizes a full bladder and wakes up on their own at night. Bed-wetting alarms can establish the connection between the brain and the bladder in your child .

3. Waiting for your Child to Outgrow Bed-wetting. Yes, it’s true that most children outgrow bed-wetting after a certain age, but bed-wetting is stressful and embarrassing. Also, many parents and children don’t want to wait endlessly. If your child is over 6 years of age and still wets the bed couple times of a week, it’s time to find out the cause of bed-wetting and get the right treatment.

4. Comparing with Other Siblings. It’s possible you never had bed-wetting issues with your older children and/or a child younger to your bedwetter is already dry. But drawing comparison with other children in the household will not help. It will only increase your child’s feeling of shame and guilt which can lead to prolonged bed-wetting.

5. Making Lifestyle Choices. Simple every day choices such as limiting your child’s fluid-intake, not consuming caffeinated drinks and food or wearing pull ups can make a difference. Limiting fluid in-take without making your child uncomfortably thirsty and restricting tea, coffee, colas or chocolate before bedtime might help.

Remember that it is not not a full bladder that causes bedwetting. It is your child’s inability to wake up to empty the bladder that causes bed-wetting. Help your child recognize the need to wake up. And one of helping them is letting them sleep in the underwear instead of the pull up with a bedwetting alarm till bed-wetting stops.

Special Needs Alarms - One Stop Bedwetting

Bed-Wetting in Special Needs Children

Bed-wetting in  special needs children is very stressful and challenging for both parents and children. Did you know that bed-wetting is a very common problem impacting millions of children and one that is also treatable? There are many bed-wetting solutions and treatment options that can help a special needs child to overcome the problem quickly and effectively.

One of the best and proven ways to stop bed-wetting in special needs children is to use  a bed-wetting alarm at night. These bed-wetting alarms use moisture detecting sensor that trigger the alarm and wakes up a sleeping child when bed-wetting occurs. Most modern day alarms come  with a vibrating feature that can alert children with  hearing or visual disabilities.

Bed-wetting alarms usually have loud tones to wake up a deep sleeper, however, sometimes children do not respond to the alarm initially. If your child doesn’t respond to the alarm in first few weeks, help him wake up. In the case of a child with special needs it is a good idea for the parent or a caretaker to sleep in the same room as the child to help him or her wake up and use the bathroom at night. Overtime, the child will  become conditioned to wake up and use  the bathroom independently.

Training a bed-wetting child with special needs to go to the bathroom independently is centered on communication. So, before beginning the treatment explain to them how the alarm works with pictures, videos or hand signals or any other cues that you think works best for your child.

While you and your child gets use to the treatment process with a bed-wetting alarm, it is a good idea to keep a few waterproof bedding overlay protectors handy. Waterproof overlays can prevent urine, sweat or other unwanted liquid spills to seep into your bedding.

Motivating a special needs child to achieve bowel and bladder control will allow the child to be more independent and confident. So, don’t ridicule or punish them if they have setbacks or take time to respond to the treatment.
