With bedwetting there are theories that work, and some ideas that go on and on and don’t. However, you don’t want to miss ones that usually work and get at the real problem. Bedwetting with some kids may be in part a result of excessively deep sleep, but the real problem may need addressed about how a bedwetter has response to a training alarm ringing, when the bladder signals are ignored by the bedwetting child in this program. Temporary corrected conduct is not what we want. We want a helpful oriented correction that makes kids want to and can sleep dry permanently.
When you look at the many false ideas about what causes bedwetting (enuresis), and what doesn’t, ask yourself if you have heard some of these ideas, and which apply to your child.
1. Kids will outgrow bedwetting. – Yes, but some go till their teens and adults need to help with a program earlier than that. The best data shows only about 14% outgrow this problem each year.
2 .Stopping liquids before bedtime. Water actually is not the problem, though too much makes kids wet the bed more at first. The problem is even worse for the deep sleeper who tries to wake up to the bladder signals at first, while wearing an alarm. So go easy on the water, but not stop it.
3. Is the child’s bladder too small? See you doctor. Most children simply have to learn to get up during the night. Even with a small bladder they will respond to our alarm, and cause the bedwetting to stop.
4. Medication for bedwetting may even help at first. Yes, but they do not correct the underlying deep sleep problems and they don’t train. Wetness is back later, and there can be many side effects. Our Sleepdry bedwetting alarm is best at sensing moisture and giving parents some of the many theories and facts that work for enuresis, which is bedwetting. See your physician.
5. Don’t think it’s some emotional problem that’s causing your child’s bedwetting. Solve any emotional problems, by themselves, for they do no cause bedwetting. Emotional problems get better, however, when the bedwetting does not continue but is solved.
6. Punishment is always wrong for bedwetting because the enuretic needs positive methods to motivate them. Even the deepest sleeper can learn to wake up to bladder signals if they wet the bed. Alarms work.
Let’s look at some of these many ideas in detail.
1. When will they outgrow the problem? As you probably know, people should see their doctor. His or her analysis of the enuresis problem will tell you when the bedwetting should be treated. Don’t wait to stop it until they are older children, or teens. Even a few adults still suffer from enuresis unless they can get the correct answer. Self image is best corrected early at a low age for the bedwetting problem. 5 to 10 is best if possible. The supposed best bedwetting advice is wrong if they say to wait to outgrow bedwetting, and kids are wanting to end it now! It is very easy to let time go by.
2. Stopping Liquids – It seems to be the most sense. Cutting down liquids, equals no more bedwetting problem. This idea ignores the filling up that the person has from salt and fluid retention from the day. How can they be able to make if through the night- if this extra fluid leaves them having to urinate? Solving the problem doesn’t work if you just do one thing. It’s difficult to ask someone not to drink water, especially if they’ve had salty pizza, and they are thirsty at bedtime. Most of the food we eat besides is too salty and turn into liquid craving through the digestive system. So for the bedwetting problem, have the deep sleeper restricted mostly for salt. Then during sleep, liquid craving passes.As far as the bedwetting problem is concerned, liquid intake is ok if the enuretic will only drink a very small glass of water at bedtime with our program.
3. Tests show my child has a small bladder. The cause of bedwetting is not that the bladder is too small. Because of this idea, parents too quickly in the moment think the bladder is too small giving the result of wetness. The problem is that the person does not wake up and use the restroom. The problem is not that the bedwetter doesn’t ever wakeup. Signals happen once or many times when not in deep sleep. They will not wet the bed if you teach and require a person to get up and to use the toilet more. The size of the bladder does not matter. Neither does deep sleep. One cause of bedwetting is not letting the bladder signals wake up the deep sleeper, instead of beginning to urinate in their sleep.
4. Medication for bedwetting can help temporarily. Ask your doctor if they should be prescribed. For bedwetting some are done orally, and some are nasal sprays. Medicines can show some improvement at first. Medicines have some side effects, and there are different medicines for treating the problem. If they must be stopped, then started all over again, treating the problem can be expensive. Remember, in the end, the problem must be addressed to stop bedwetting. The deep sleep pattern must be helped with an alarm program that helps the enuretic not just wake up to their own bladder signals, but treat them in a friendly way.
5. Parents by now have largely done their own research and know myth from fact. The wetting the bed can be in control and the bed wetter can awake from their sleep. The sleep patterns in enuresis are not a problem with emotions. However, emotional problems, and allowing bedwetting to continue is not the way to deal with the problem. Waking up every morning with a wet bed is a problem emotionally. Imagine the enurectic having the guilt feeling from wetting the bed. They feel the wet bed does not please the parents. The bedwetting will not easily stop unless there is an alarm working, then the emotional elements go away, and they can feel better about themselves. They can then go to a sleep over or camp having discovered bedwetting can go away with the Sleep Dry alarm.
6. How much work is there getting up in the night? As the alarm works, the parent must help the child get up at night, and out to the bathroom. After the bathroom, before you take them back to bed, hook up the alarm again! This is in case the child does wet the bed again. The reason for this is kids usually wet twofold times at first. No one knows why, but the bladder sometimes is going to send signals to the enuretic two times to go to the restroom. The parent doesn’t have to be guessing, the Sleepdry alarm will catch the child and in time actually prevent wetting. The deep sleeper child will eventually sleep right through the night some too, once they learn the whole routine. The child may sleep right through everything at first, but as the parent walks them a little and takes them to the bathroom, they learn to wake from deep sleep. Have them talk to the parent and count their fingers. Give them a word they will remember the next morning for a prize. In the night keep more lights on. The parent doing this can help the bedwetting problem not only not get worse, but help the enuretic be doing what we want them to do. They stop urinating in their sleep, and the parent will train and help the enuretic stay dry.
7. Rewards. Parents who have tried rewards and discipline realize their effort is not at all a bribe. To motivate an enuretic child to stop bedwetting helps the enuretic believe in themselves, and control, and cease bedwetting. The enuretic who practices, including using rewards, will avoid having to fail which can cause enormous discouragement. When the parent practices this motivation message, the rewards focuses that the message is important. They start trying hard to stop wetting the bed. The enuretic child can be taught to wake up to the bladder signals. No matter what kind deep sleep they are in, rewards encourage them to not wet the bed. They are more alert because they are getting motivated.
8. Bedwetting alarms. Besides being moisture sensing, our alarm device gives all a good price. The Sleepdry devices price ranges around $50, with battery. As your household gets plugged into how the systems operated, there will be no shock how successful our current system is. We suggest that the very best and safest alarm is our moisture sensor. If hearing of the Sleepdry Alarm, rings a bell, it is because our system has long been used by doctors who hold that our system for a very long time has been a system that does not fail.
When a person buys our Sleepdry alarm system, the concept to remember is that the problem enuretic will have an instructional program that will center on a positive system. Parents know how good incentive can properly correct their child’s behavior. Our alarm system sounds loud enough to wake up to and learn to be able to have correct response. Our techniques give you the needed information to establish a program that will not fail. The bedwetting alarm is one part of the system, but the pattern of fun motivation is needed also.
