Still Bedwetting? It's Time to Get Control!
Here are some quick facts about children and bed wetting:
- In most cases, the cause of bedwetting is not known. However, such factors include bladder size, stressful emotional situations at home or school, your child sleeps so deeply, they don't wake, and more.
- Approximately 16% of 6 year olds struggle with bed wetting.
- Many times, bed wetting runs in families. If both parents struggled with bedwetting as children, it's 30% more likely their children will have the same problems.
- It's not your child's fault. Children don't want to wet the bed on purpose.
What Can I Do to End My Child's Bedwetting?
The Leading Solution for Bedwetting in Children
- Treatment Clinics - These can be effective, but take time and a lot of commitment. They can also be costly.
- Medication - Medication is a hit or miss solution, depending on the underlying cause of your child's bedwetting. We don't like medication because we don't like putting drugs in our kids.
- Diapers/Plastic Bed Covers - These are like a band-aid that doesn't actually solve the problem. Plus, we find that most children don't like wearing diapers when they are 5+ years old.
- Restricting Fluids - This method is only about 15% effective. Most of the time fluid consumption is not at the root of the problem.
- Punishment - Because your child has no control over their bedwetting punishing them will most likely lead to poor self esteem and increased anxiety over their bedwetting problem. This will likely make the problem worse.
- Setting an alarm at a specific time - Because the alarm needs to sound at the exact moment that bedwetting occurs, setting an alarm and waking the child up without having an episode will not result in lasting effects.
- Bedwetting Alarms - We have found, through numerous studies, that the Nytone bedwetting alarm has been the #1 way for ending bedwetting in more children.
How It Works
The simple Nytone bedwetting alarm is the WORLD'S SMALLEST bedwetting alarm making it easy to use and unobtrusive to your child's restful sleep. It simply attaches to your child's arm, much like a sports band for your phone or mp3 player.
The Nytone alarm uses proprietary circuitry to detect moisture before other alarms. This means your child is warned earlier than the competition, resulting in greater confidence and better results.
What Else Can I Do?
In addition to using the leading Nytone bedwetting alarm, parents have the best results when they do the following:
- Positive reinforcement every night your child doesn't wet the bed can go a long ways to a success.
- Minimize the amount of fluids your child drinks prior to bed time, instead it is a good idea to move overall fluid intake to earlier in the day.
- Especially avoid drinks with caffeine, as caffeine speeds up urine production.
- Whenever your child wets the bed, don't make them feel worse than they already do. Encourage them and be supportive.
