Perhaps the best time to treat bed-wetting is to address it before it becomes a problem.
Simple Prevention Measures for Bed-Wetting
- Try bladder training – once a day, encourage your child to hold his or her urine for a few minutes past the first sensation of a full bladder.
- Practice this training for three months to give it a chance to work.
When to Call the Doctor
- Call your doctor for advice and an appointment if either you or your child feel frustrated and want more help.
- Call the doctor for an immediate appointment if your child experiences painful urination, bloody or very cloudy urine, abdominal pain, or a very narrow urine stream – this could signal a bladder infection.
