Bed Wetting

Post by Tanja on Tue 14 May 2013 - 12:07

Please can you mommies give me some advise as D is still wetting the bed.

Waking her up during the night is not an option as she gets upset for being waken up during the night.
We have bought her that Nutera bed wetting drops and that is also not helping.

Took her to the paediatric as well and her says it is normal for a girl her age to still wet the bed as girls still wet beds at the age of 5 and boys age of 7.
We can start with medication from next year the paediatric says but after that it is not a guarantee that she will stop wetting the bed.

Any advise would help. :Anyone??:

How much liquid does she take in the afternoon? Say after 17h00? What I have done with MissK I have cut out liquids after 18h00 and before she goes to bed I take her to the bathroom to pee. That has seemed to helped so far

I cut her fluids at 18:30 and she goes to the loo before bed.
If she goes to bed lets say +/- 10 or 11 o'clock, the next morning she did not wet the bed. But if she goes to bed earlier the next morning the bed is wet.

I have consider to put a nappy on for her again for the night and maybe she will feel uncomfortable with it and that maybe it would help her to get up and go to the loo.

We are at a stage where everyone is talking about taking their kids of night nappies...but mine is nowhere near ready, so I've decided to leave it.

If there are all psychological and physiological factors have been ruled out, then maybe she is just not ready. Is it every night or once in a while?

I've decided to leave Zander on night nappies. He isnt ready, and no one knows except us. The time or two we tried leaving night nappies was very embarrasing for him and it makes him very anxious. For me thats much worse than the fact that he is wearing night nappies, I couldnt bear to see little face when he wakes up with wet pj's.

It is every night that she wets the bed.
I'm so "moedeloos" about it as I have to change her bedding everyday.
I really don't know what to do anymore.

J was wearing a night nappy until well after 4 years old. Like Honey said, he just wasn't ready.

I did get the occasional stink eye because "HOW CAN HE STILL BE ON A NIGHT NAPPY???!", but you know what? I didn't care. We did try everything, no fluids after 6 then no fluids after 5, didn't work. We tried waking him up, didn't work. We tried going to the loo 2 - 3 times before bed, didn't work. So I gave up and put him on a night nappy again. Once he was dry for 2 weeks, I took away the night nappy and we have since had 1 or 2 glipsies.

On another note, I was a bedwetter until the later years of primary school. (Not nice to talk about it, I was always extremely embarrassed). My parents took me to loads of doctors and specialists, turned out that I had an underdeveloped bladder. Nothing anyone could do but wait it out. Eventually it did come right, but to this day I am still scared and embarrassed about it.

Hi Tanja

I feel for you as I am in the same boat as you. Wade has the same problem and is four next month!!! :affraid

i stop liquids from the moment we get home from school. He has a wee and before bed at 7:30pm he has another wee.

I wake him at 10pm and at 3:00am or else we have a wet bed. I stopped the nappies from Feb.

No problem with Erin she has had two accidents since March last year when she started wearing panties.

I spoke to my GP and she said I must bring Wade in for tests as it is not normal. Unfortunately just before I wanted to take him in I fell and fractured my right wrist so have not been driving now for close on six weeks.

My GP said that there are meds for them.

But yes, I am frustrated and have also thought about the nappies but fearful it makes him lazy so for now I get up. Luckily my body clock reminds me and then I also potty at the same time Laughing

I woke up 2-3 time during the night, but problem is if you wake Denique to get up she will get upset and will start a tantrum will wake daddy and I don't want that.

luckily Wade does not make a fuss. He is "half deur die blare" but I take him. He knows the drill and I have asked him to call me but nope. I was even putting black bags down in Summer so he could sleep on those to save on the linen.

I am afraid to just ignore it. My GP is a female and has kids so I am trusting her on this one. She said we need to do tests to make sure there is no underlying cause for it, if not, she will prescribe meds.

she may just not be ready.

I didn't wait for the 2 weeks of a dry nappy with D, one day, about a week after he turned 4, he said to me "I don't want these nappies anymore" and point blank refused to wear them... bear in mind he hadn't had a dry nappy in the morning - not one single dry one - the first night I got up about 6 times to check his bed to see if he wet it and he hadn't.

I would put nappies back on her - don't make a big fuss of it and try again in a month or if she asks before then to have them off.

Zeke decided himself that he no longer wants to wear nappies.. However we have to wake up twice a night (we take turns) to take Z to the loo. If we dont, then he wets his bed.

Last night we took him only once, I didnt wake up (Ooops). So this morning at 6am I had to bath Zeke as he was soaking wet.

We also limit his liquid intake. Even during the day. Z is due to go for tests for diabetes. He drinks constantly. And the dr said we should bring him. Will be taking him on 27 May.

I agree with Chantelle and Hazel, put her back on night nappies. Zander's paed has assured me over and over that I only should start worrying when he is closer to SEVEN. And he agrees with me about the psychological scarring from embarrasment is much worse than wearing a nappy at night until you are six.

I tried the no liquids or less liquids thing but I can't expect Zander to have his last drink at 17:00 and the next only 12 hours later, considering he is a child that easily drinks 500 ml of water throughout the day over and above his coffee in the morning. He only wants water not cooldrink.

We also tried waking Zander up, if he doesn't throw a humoungous tantrum, then he is wide awake and wont go back to sleep. I'm leaving it until he is leaving it.

Maybe I must try the Nappy thing again and see how it goes.
She's got one of those toddler beds and is growing out of it now and want to move her into a single bed, but I'm so scared to move her in the single bed as she still wets the bed.

Tanya, I just googled the issue and it is really nothing to worry about. They say don't punish your child as he or she has no control over their bladder when they sleep. Some children sleep much deeper than others. Up to the age of 5 it is normal.

I still worry cause there are kids that is younger then she is and they don't wet the bed. It just bothers me a lot cause it is every night. There is maybe 2 or 3 night a month that she doesn't wet the bed.

HI

I am so glad to see this topic we took the boys off night nappies earlier this year and they wee bofore bed and at 10:30 most nights they wee in thier sleep almost but I have a problem with Kian who still regularly wets the bed after that!

I didnt realise it could be a problem, Connor has accidents once in a while but otherwise is dry. But Kian is a problem. It is worse when he is ill then he wees 4/5 times in one night. I have not really limited what they drink before bed I think I must give that a try, I just dont know how you do it I get tantrums if I try suggest they are not thirsty in the evening.

@home is selling nice breathable bed protectors I bought one for our bed and now I must just get one for thier bed.

Kerry - Erin is not a problem. Wade is fine witn not drinking and some mornings wont even drink. Luckily he is used to been woken up twice a night and I tell him when I put him to bed I am going to wake him. I put on his bedroom light walk him to the toilet. He lifts the seat does his thing, hands everything and off he does to bed. He literally falls asleep as soon as he puts his head down.

I will have him tested just to make sure but as the other mommies have said each to his own or her own time. At least we have one out of two - could have been both!!! I will keep you all updated once I have been to the doctor. Just waiting to hear if my cast comes off on Monday then I will be able to drive again soon Very Happy
