It's gonna be a wet one, folks! As unpleasant and frustrating as bed-wetting can be, it's not at all uncommon. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, 20 percent of 5-year-olds and 10 percent of 6-year-olds wet the bed. Most lil ones outgrow bed-wetting without medical intervention, but there are some great products available to make the process a little more manageable for parents and tots. Support and positive reinforcement is crucial when it comes to helping lil ones get past the bed-wetting phase, so the last thing you want is to make a tot sleep in a soggy bed or underpants. Keep reading for some helpful products to support lil ones on their quest for total potty domination.
Goodnight baby . . . maybe? Most parents say that sleep is one of the biggest hurdles that comes with having children, but every youngster has a different slumber cycle. From sleepwalking to bed wetting, many things can happen once a wee one hits the hay. Chime in with your own experience!
What are your suggestions or advice on how to get your child to stop bedwetting? Mine is seven and has done it ever since he was a toddler. I've taken him to the doctor several times and all they say is that it's normal, nothing to drink after a certain time, and no disciplining him (because he's not doing it on purpose). I don't get mad at him, because I myself remember being in elementary and having accidents awake or asleep every now and then until about 4th grade!
Is this hereditary? Should I take him to a specialist? I ask him why he does it and all he says is that he doesn't feel when he's going.
I'm not sure what to do anymore? Please help?
