Bed Wetting:

If your child wets the bed on a regular basis, it is important to first find out if your child has any type of medical condition that is responsible for it. Most of the time, it isn't a medical problem, though. Instead it is something simple, such as your child sleeps too hard or drinks too much before bedtime. You can try to eliminate the occurrence of your child wetting the bed by doing the following:

• Have your child go to the restroom just before bedtime—many times it is simply that the child forgot to go before they went to sleep.

• Don't let your child drink anything near bedtime—sometimes a bedwetter simply drinks liquid too close to bedtime and ends up wetting the bed.

• Set a timer to wake them up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

Changing your child's habits with these three things can often have excellent results, and your child may wet the bed much less often. It is possible, though, that they won't have much of an effect, or possibly none at all. If you have completely revamped your child's routine, and they still wet the bed on a regular basis, there are a few things you can do that can either help your child try harder to stop, or make things a little easier for you while they are still doing it.

• Make them help you clean up the mess—this is an excellent way to show them why it is important to try their hardest to not wet the bed.

• Offer rewards for dry nights—this may work well on some children, and it may not work at all on others. If the reward is something that they really want, it is possible that they will sleep lightly enough to be able to wake up.

• Use a water-proof mattress pad for under their sheet. This won't help them grow out of bedwetting any faster, but it will at least save the mattress.

• Let your child wear night time diapers. Even for older children, there are the some night time diapers that are thin and resemble underwear. This may not help in any way to prevent your child from wetting the bed, but it will help there not be as big of a mess.

If you have tried everything, and your child still wets the bed on a regular basis, you may want to take them to the doctor. There is very possibly nothing wrong with your child, and it may be something they just need to grow out of. But sometimes there are medical issues going on that you may be unaware of, such as a sleep disorder or a bladder problem. Your doctor will also be able to provide you with ideas as to how to help your child overcome this, even when there isn't a medical condition. If it is medical, they can possibly prescribe medication to help your child.

If your child is normally dry every night, and suddenly starts wetting the bed on a regular basis, you should take them to the doctor as well. There may be something going on that is causing this big change, and a trip to the doctor is the first step to finding out what that problem is.

No matter what the situation or what is causing your child to wet the bed, it is very important to not make them feel bad about it. More than likely, they dislike waking up in wet sheets even more than you dislike having to wash the wet sheets. If they could control it, they probably would, and since they can't, if you make them feel bad for it, it will only make the situation worse.

You should never punish your child for wetting the bed, and you should try to do everything in your power to help them with the problem.
