Bedwetting: Most kids just outgrow the fairly common problem

Apr 14, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Asheville Citizen-Times

“But a lot of insurance companies won't cover the bladder alarms, and they can be expensive,'' Bernstein said. "It's cheaper to just wake them up, and eventually their own body will get used to doing that.”

Bedwetting is embarrassing for kids and frustrating for parents. The good news is there are ways to treat the problem, and most children outgrow it on their own as their bladder capacities increase. via Asheville Citizen-Times

Helping a bedwetter be comfortable is a huge part of helping the child to adjust to being a bedwetter. No child wants to wet the bed and most will usually agree quickly to the wearing of protection so that although they are wet their bed stays dry. Protection can take many forms and it is up to the parents to help the child choose something to wear that everyone is in agreement with. For older bedwetters there are cloth pullup style pants that offer padding that is adjustable to meet the absorbancy needs. Snap Eze is one Happy Heiny's is another, Motherease and Mother of Eden and Nikky's also make bedwetters pants that will help the child feel comfortable and not look like a diaper when they are being worn. Not being diapered or looking like their in diapers is necessary to the childs self esteem and does help them feel more comfortable about wetting the bed.
Sometimes it happens every night and others maybe 3 or more nights a week.
Regardless if you as a parent decide to use the pants they should be worn every night just in case.
I know we have 3 bedwetters in our house and they wear bedwetting pants to bed under the pj's which generally keep the beds dry and help with the laundry.
My advice is keep you chin up, make sure that the doctor sees the child to make sure there are no urinary infections or the like.
Once this has been determined then between parents and child a choice of what to wear should be made. Today there are a lot of pants to choose from.

OK Holly, buy some vinyl pants to wear over your disposable, that stops leaks. But wear a pair of briefs between the disp and the vinyl
pants to soak up the leaks.

I need a new pair as my old ones are beginning to crack - but they are silent.

Try ebay....

And what have you done? What *Constructive* advice have you given to this site. Feel free to quote it, but I guarantee it will be scrutinized and proven to be a false entry. You have done nothing to help people with their problems. All you do is post fetish posts and yell at other people. You're a worthless scum not worth the dirt I wipe off my shoes at the end of the day. The whole world, not just this site, would be better off without your existence, and if you ever think about coming to me to make a visit, I will make sure it will be your last thought. Go somewhere else and leave this site so that people can get the help they need.

Listen a88hole. I work with children and in the UK we need a police check to do that. If you want, give me an email address and I'll send you a digital copy of my police check.
Grow up fool!

Most kids do grow out of bedwetting, some take longer than others and some people will always be bedwetters. I honestly do not see why people get so hung up about it. I am middle aged and have always been a bedwetter and apart from that I lead a perfectly normal life. My advice to anyone who is struggling with this "problem" is not to worry about it. Sheets wash you have a shower and away you go. Parents don't punish your kids for it. They will either grow out of it or they won't. I never did and stil wake up wet most mornings but I can think of a lot worse things.
