FAQs on Bedwetting


Bed wetting is a behavioural disorder which affects many children. Children are unable to realize the need to empty the bladder, as a result of which they wet the bed. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions on bed wetting.

I'm 'big' now. Why do I still wet the bed? 

We know that everyone has to urinate. Your urine is stored in a little bag in your body, which is called the bladder. When this bladder gets full, it has to be emptied so more urine can be stored. So, the bladder stretches and stretches till it is full, and then it sends a signal telling you to go to the bathroom. Sometimes, if you are fast asleep and having a nice dream, you might not hear your bladder calling you, and the bladder empties on its own. The result? You've wet the bed. 
 

Am I the only child my age who still wets the bed? 

No, you're certainly not alone. There are some children who still wet the bed, even at your age. In your classroom itself there must be at least 2 to 3 other children who wet their bed. But of course, they wont tell you. Just like you wouldn't like to tell anyone. 
 

What can I do about it? 

One of the easiest ways to stop bedwetting is to avoid drinking water at night, before going to sleep. Also, make sure you go to the bathroom and urinate before turning in. 

Don't feel embarrassed about speaking to your doctor about this. After all, he is there to help.  Don't try and hide the fact that you wet your bed from your parents. 
 

What can you, as a parent, do?

Keep a record of the number of times he wets his bed. 

Try and get your hands on a bedwetting alarm. This wakes up your child the minute he starts wetting his bed. Slowly, the child will get used to waking up every time he has to urinate. However, this method takes some time. 

Make sure he visits the bathroom before going to sleep.

We tried everything from bed wetting solutions to bed-wetting books.

Even signed up with an Enuresis clinic; but bedwetting always relapsed after the treatment was completed.

Luckily, I read about the Chummie Bedwetting Alarm online and gave it a try.

Its been 5 months since treatment is completed with the Chummie Bedwetting Alarm and my son has never wet the bed.

With no side effects at all, I'd recommend that every parent give this bed wetting alarm a try.

BTW, the company ships the product to India.

Note: The above stated view is my sole experience with the Chummie Bedwetting Alarm and the treatment that worked for my child.

Please visit www.chummie.com for more information.
