A Good and Effective Solutions for Bedwetting
Bedwetting is also commonly known as night-time enuresis. It can be a very annoying and upsetting problem both for children and parents. Most children would stop bedwetting on their own if they could, but generally need the help of their parents and even doctor. It’s significant to approach the situation coolly, keeping in mind what is developmentally suitable for your child’s age, as well as ruling out any medical causes for bedwetting. Below are certain methods that are useful in stopping bedwetting habits of your child.
Bedwetting often runs in families Most kids who wet the bed have a relative that did it, too. If both parents wet the bed when they were young, it’s very likely that their child will as well. Generally, bed-wetting before age 6 or 7 isn’t cause for concern. At this age, nighttime bladder control simply may not be established.
A bedwetting alarm has a moisture sensor that attaches to your child’s pajamas. When it senses wetness a small alarm will sound alerting the child (and parents) that he or she has wet. If the child hasn’t completely emptied their bladder, this may help train them to use the toilet during the night. When you first start using the alarm, someone will need to be there when the child wets to walk him to the bathroom and empty his or her bladder while the alarm is still going off.
Bedwetting alarms are now available at leading pharmacies in India too, and over a period of around 3 months they are very useful in decreasing/ stopping bedwetting altogether. For quicker relief these may be combined with DDAVP. Imipramine tablets are a cheaper treatment option however these have significant side-effects like nervousness, tiredness and intestinal problems. Remember for most kids bedwetting is nothing more than an inconvenience or at worse a social problem.
A tea infusion concocted from equal parts of St. John’s Wort, Lemon Balm and Cornsilk serves as an instant home remedy for bed wetting in children. Meanwhile, medicinal extracts of the herb Equisetum is popularly used in traditional Chinese medicine as homeopathic treatment for bed wetting. Equisetum (6cH) is purported to naturally ease the bladders, restore healthy functioning and relieve nocturnal enuresis within a span of few weeks while relieving anxious behaviors in children on the sidelines.
Since some bedwetting is caused by undiagnosed medical conditions such as diabetes or allergies, it makes sense to take your child to a doctor to be checked out. If there is a doctor in your area who is known for treating children with Enuresis, so much the better. In either case, ruling out medical problems can be a big relief. If a medical problem is causing your child to wet the bed, coping with the problem will also generally resolve the Enuresis.
