Really Useful Tips

I really do understand it means more washing, BUT please use a mattress protector instead of protective pants. It�s absolutely crucial for your child�s body to learn the difference between wet and dry

If they�re wearing snug protection they won�t be aware when the bladder first starts to release and they won't learn to be able to control it at the stage they need to

Check that they aren�t constipated, since a full bowel can press on the bladder and increase the urge to urinate

Check that they drink plenty of water during the day and restrict fluids after their evening meal. Offer just sips of water if they are still thirsty

Over-concentrated urine can stimulate the bladder; another reason to drink in the daytime

Avoid caffeine-containing drinks such as tea, coffee or fizzy drinks

Ensure that your child goes to the bathroom very last thing before sleep. Sometimes they might go to bed early and read but encourage them to go just before they settle down for sleep

Leave a light on if there is the slightest anxiety concerning the dark so that they can get up and walk to the bathroom easily during the night. (Remember that your child may sometimes deny they are scared of the dark just to save face)

Encourage them to help with changing the sheets to the degree that this is suitable for their age and capabilities BUT DO NOT MAKE IT SEEM LIKE A PUNISHMENT. They will feel more involved in trying to help with the problem and be less likely to think that you are annoyed with them because of all the extra work they are causing you

Listen to a short extract from CONTROL YOUR BLADDER-Good Morning

Listen to a short extract from I'M DRY AT NIGHT



Why is this happening?

Whatever the original cause, believing they can�t control it, getting into the habit of ignoring signals from the bladder, expecting and worrying about wetting all add up to a wet bed

Some children�s systems are just slower than others at developing; they may not yet produce enough of the hormone that allows less urine to be produced overnight

Boys are usually slower than girls

This slow development can be hereditary so often a parent also had the problem, often the father. If both parents had the problem, the more likely it is that the child will have it too

They might have an �over active� bladder

They are probably deep sleepers and don�t notice the signals from the bladder

Bedwetting can occasionally be a sign of an underlying medical problem, such as a urinary infection, diabetes or kidney problems. If so, you might often, although not always, expect to find daytime urgency and frequency as well. Other symptoms of Diabetes are Acetone breath, constant thirst and very frequent passing of large amounts of urine

Because of possible medical problems it is a good idea to check things out with your medical practitioner in order to rule out physical problems

Where children have been dry at night for some time and there is sudden onset of bedwetting, there is almost always some underlying physical cause or emotional stress or anxiety. Very common background issues can be: a new baby, problems at school, upset in a friendship, bullying, family difficulties, death of a family member or friend or even a pet, a house or school move. In fact anything which upsets the child's emotional stability can be the cause or can make it worse

What can you do?

Play detective: try to discover a pattern that might not seem obvious at first. Are there more or fewer wet beds if there�s been a problem at school, or if one parent rather than another puts them to bed, if they go to bed earlier or later, if they wet at night or in the early morning, for example. The more information you have, the easier to know the next step

Try not to make an issue of it, since your child is not doing it on purpose and will be at least as upset by it inside as you are, (even though in some cases they may not seem to be bothered)

Follow the Really Useful Tips above

Let them listen to the CDs and downloads regularly and for several weeks (some kids need two or three months) while following the tips

Understand that by getting angry, shouting or complaining or suggesting that they do it on purpose will only make matters worse because they will become more anxious

Certainly, NEVER punish them or make fun of them. It is not their fault!

What options are there?

Hypnotherapy is good at helping to break unwanted habits and it helps relieve the stress and anxiety that is almost always felt when children wet the bed. There are suggestions in the recordings to boost self-esteem, confidence and belief that they can take control even when they are asleep. Also, suggestions to notice the physical signals in the body and wake up if they need to use the bathroom.

I specialise in working with kids but I always recommend trying the CDs / downloads first because a remarkable number of children respond to them brilliantly.  Remember that children�s maturity varies tremendously, so check the descriptions of the CDs / downloads to choose the right one for your child. The advantage of this method is that they are completely natural and safe, no drugs are involved and most children enjoy listening to them as they drift off to sleep

An enuresis alarm which makes a noise and wakes the child as soon as they start to wet the bed. The most commonly used type has a sensor that is placed between the bottom sheet and the mattress. Success rates vary wildly with these. While it works well for some children, I am frequently told how the child seems to sleep through it but the rest of the household is woken up!

Medication Desmopressin is a drug which can be given to children aged five or over as a tablet or in the form of Desmomelts which dissolve under the tongue. This acts by reducing the amount of urine that is produced overnight. This has a success rate of around 70%, and works pretty immediately if it's going to work at all. Treatment is usually continued for three months, and then is stopped to see if the problem has resolved. There are possible side-effects (headache, stomach ache and feeling sick) but they are not usually severe

There are other drugs for example, Imipramine (Tofranil) and Oxybutynin used for specific problems such as an over active bladder. NB All drugs may carry side effects in their users
