What is Bedwetting?

Bedwetting or nocturnal enuresis is unintentional, passage of urine during sleep at night after the age when a child should have the ability to control his/her bladder when it is full. Bedwetting is a common problem in children, especially those less than 6 years old. About 13% of 6 year old children wet the bed while about 5% of 10 year old still wet the bed.

 

Types of Bedwetting

There are two types of Bedwetting; Primary and secondary.

Primary Bedwetting is the type that is going on with the child since early childhood without a break, where the child has never been dry at night for any significant period of time.

Secondary bedwetting is when child starts wetting again after he they have been dry at night for a long period of time or at least 6 months.

 

Primary Bedwetting?

Studies show that as many as 5-7 million children in the U.S suffer from Bedwetting. The cause is likely due to one or combinations of any of the factors listed below.

  • The child has no control on his full bladder and can’t hold urine for the entire night.
  • The child is a deep sleeper and does not get up even his/her bladder is full.
  • The child produces a large amount of urine during the night and evening hours.
  • The child has poor daytime toilet habit. Many children who have primary bedwetting ignore the urge to urinate and put off urinating for a very long time.

 

Secondary Bedwetting?

A child with secondary bedwetting is much more likely to have other symptoms like daytime bedwetting. Some causes for secondary bedwetting are as follows.

  • Urinary tract infection. Check if the child has urinary tract infection. This can be other reason when body increase urine output as a consequences of excessive blood glucose level.
  • Emotional problems. A stressful environment at home or school sometimes causes children to wet the bed.
  • Sleep apnea. Sleep pattern like can be associated with secondary bedwetting.
  • Excessive fluid intake. Consuming large amounts of fluids especially before going to bed could result in secondary bedwetting.
  • Hereditary. Bedwetting tends to runs in families, chances your child would be a bedwetter if either of the parent is wetting the bed.

 

Impact of Bedwetting on Children

Bedwetting can have impacts which can be short or long term. This can be stressful for both children and parents. Studies prove that bedwetting children have lower self esteem and live in fear of being discovered by their peers and feel of getting bullied and teased at home and school. Overall their social environment and school performance becomes weak.

The impact of bedwetting can increase if they don’t get parental support that leads them to refuse to interact and be social in most situations. Parents support is very essential; they must make them feel that they are not alone. Sharing bedwetting stories can make them feel better. The child might feel that something is wrong with them but to see positive results educate yourself and your child about bedwetting and help them to overcome bedwetting sooner.
