Synonymous with the everyday expression “bedwetting,” this medical term refers to the fact of unconsciously and involuntarily passing urine during sleep. This form of incontinence mainly affects young children, but can persist right up to adolescence.
More common among boys, it affects children who have never totally learned bladder control after the age of six.
It recurs after a dry period of at least six months.
Toilet training is probably one of the most difficult tasks for children to master. In fact, recognizing the urge to urinate can take a long time.
Several factors can explain childhood incontinence:
Enuresis can have a negative impact on a child’s self-esteem. If your child wets the bed, using guilt will serve no useful purpose. Instead, congratulate him or her for dry nights and try to understand the reasons behind the problem.
Unfortunately it is impossible to prevent the onset of primary enuresis. However, certain basic measures must be taken to help the child who wets the bed. For example:
Another option is to use a special alarm that gets triggered when it comes into contact with urine. This treatment is very effective among children 7 years of age and over. There are also certain medications that can be used to treat enuresis. To learn more, ask your pharmacist!
