As a father, the road to potty training your child can involve a lot of trial and error. Dealing with your little one wetting the bed is part of this process. However, you may start to notice that these occurrences are becoming a frequent aspect of your child's nightly routine. Though bedwetting is usually attributed to toddlers, some children can have difficulties with this as well. Here are some tips to put the kibosh on situation.
Limit water before bed One of the first things you should consider before trying more in-depth solutions is using some common sense when it comes to limiting your child's water intake before bed. Instruct him or her not to drink any beverages immediately before going to sleep and encourage a trip to the bathroom as well.
Alarms If limiting water still isn't working, then you might want to consider purchasing a bedwetting alarm for your child's bed. These devices typically rest on the bedding and detect if urination occurs - sounding an alarm to wake the child up. Consider trying this method for a few weeks to see if it helps curb your little one's tendency.
Medication While it's preferable to avoid this, heading to the doctor might be the best course of action if all of your other steps fail to stop your child from wetting the bed. Frequent accidents could be the sign of a medical or hereditary issue, and your doctor can help narrow down the causes to see if drugs can provide relief.
My son used to wet his bed until he was 12 years old, we tried limiting fluids, tried medication and even gave therapy a shot. Each bought about a marginal change which was not more than 20% and then in a month back to square one.
Thatís when a friend recommended I try the Chummie bedwetting alarm. I bought it off my local Best Buy store or if youíd like you could buy it online from Best Buy and search for "Chummie"
Buying it in-stores will give you a chance to see the product before you purchase it and the Best Buy staff was very well trained on this product.
My son started responding to the alarm from day 1 itself and by around day 45 he had completed his 2 dry weeks. Which means he is free from bedwetting. Itís 3 months since his treatment is completed and no reoccurrences. The Chummie treatment system is both FDA registered and FSA eligible.
Since chummie is almost always sold out at at Best Buy and you may have to backorder it online and/or call for it in-stores.
I am glad this alarm worked for us and I'd definitely like to put the word out to all moms there to make this alarm your first choice towards bedwetting.
