Bedwetting in kids: a condition that will most likely go away
Bedwetting is a common condition in kids although ninety percent of kids think theyre the only ones who wet the bed, which makes them feel even worse. Wet beds leave bad feelings all around. Frustrated parents sometimes conclude a child is wetting the bed out of laziness. Kids worry theres something wrong with them.
For some, bedwetting may be an inevitable part of growing up, but it doesnt have to be traumatic. Understanding bed-wettings causes is the first step to dealing with this common childhood problem.
The most important thing to remember is that no one wets the bed on purpose. It doesnt mean that a kid is lazy. For some reason, kids who wet the bed are not able to feel that their bladders are full and dont wake up to pee in the toilet.
Sometimes a kid who wets the bed will have a realistic dream that he or she is in the bathroom peeing — only to wake up later and discover he or she is all wet.
The good news is that almost all kids who wet the bed eventually stop. So if a kid wets every night, it doesnt mean it is not normal. Sleep wetting is not usually caused by a problem with its body or feelings.
Its likely that bedwetting will go away on its own. In fact, 15 out of 100 kids who wet the bed will stop every year without any treatment at all. But if you have this problem its still a good idea for parents to talk to the doctor about it.
Some things can be done so that your kid stays dry like not drinking anything after dinner and remembering to go to the bathroom before going to bed....
