7 Bedwetting Tips for Parents


 Bedwetting Tips

bedwetting tips

1. Don’t Wait to Outgrow Bedwetting


The worst advice parents receive is to “just wait” to outgrow bedwetting.  Depending on family history, bedwetting can and does continue into late teens and adulthood.  If the symptom of bedwetting stops, the sleep disorder causing it can remain for their lifetime and can reappear in other forms, such as sleep apnea, which is rather dangerous and untreatable condition.


2. Explain to your child that bedwetting is only a symptom of their deep sleep and not their fault.


Bedwetting is caused by an inherited deep sleep disorder.  It is a symptom that appears as a result of the sleep disorder.  Other symptoms can include sleepwalking, night terrors, excessive snoring, sleep apnea, etc. Deep sleep is not be confused with “healthy” sleep, and neither the disorder or the bedwetting is their fault. Deep-sleep bed wetting can be treated.

3. Try to Help Your Child Get the Required Amount of Sleep

Sleep is when the brain flushes out, which is especially critical for children and teens. Lack of quality sleep can manifest itself in many obscure and subtle ways.  In addition to physical symptoms, the sleep pattern of bed wetter can create deprivation, which can cause behavioral difficulties during the day.  Children who bed wet do not get healthy, restorative sleep, and sleep is everything to how we function!


4. Don’t Encourage Your Child to Restrict Liquids

Fluid intake is vital for a healthy body and does not cause bedwetting.  Consumption of fluids does not cause bedwetting. It will only effect the volume of urine produced.

5. Avoid Giving “Bed Wetters” Medication

Since bedwetting is not caused by a medical problem, medications are not a solution; only a “band aid”.  If the drug appears to work at all, as soon as you discontinue its use, the bedwetting resumes.

This is a commonly suggested approach by physicians, yet drugs will not and cannot change the sleep pattern. They also have serious side effects.  Always consult with your Pharmacist to discuss side effects of bed wetting medication.

  6. Use of an Alarm for Treatment of Bedwetting is not the Answer.

Expecting an alarm to awaken a bed wetter is like expecting a smoke alarm to put out a fire.  An alarm on its own–without a professional team to design an individualized enuresis treatment program– will only end in frustration and failure.

7. Consider a bedwetting treatment clinic

Enuresis Treatment Center provides a permanent cure for bedwetting and covered by a money-back guarantee.  Bed wetters do not have to suffer in silence.  Instead of a bed wetting tip, we offer a drug-free, effective, and dependable bed wetting solution is available at our bedwetting clinic.   With over 40 years of experience treating this condition, with a 97% success rate, bedwetting can be solved permanently.

Overnight Camp: A Bed Wetting Nightmare For Children With Enuresis


Older Children Bed Wetting – Fear of Discovery 

Fear of discovery for older children bed wetting is one of the most anxiety-filled issues that a bedwetter has.  Discovery of the problem often leads to dreaded experiences like being teased, shamed, humiliated, and ostracized.


That worry is at its most intense for someone who wets the bed who attend overnight summer camp.  As all of the fellow campers are jumping into their beds at night, the bedwetter, climbs into his bed hoping he can stay awake all night to try not to wet the bed, and, if he does wet, mornings would be a quick and panicked effort to hide wet sheets or dispose of pull-ups.


Worse yet, if the child has daytime control problems, (a result of constant nighttime wetting), then being around other campers is even more taxing emotionally and psychologically.  Worry and anxiety mark each day, and that effects a child’s free-spirited and fun-filled time.


Frequently children who wet the bed complain that they don’t like summer camp.  Usually it’s because they don’t want to attend due to the singular enuresis concern of being “found out”.  Parents may temporarily administer a drug known as DDAVP to try to avoid bedwetting episodes while their child is away, but it doesn’t always work and won’t ensure a stress-free camp stay.


Again, we can see how the problem that the doctors say will be “outgrown” can cause psychological havoc which may lower self-esteem, increase a sense of failure, and contribute to an overall feeling of being “different”.  Bed wetting is a thief that robs children of much of their childhood, and it doesn’t have to be that way.

How to Stop Bedwetting – With Expert Bedwetting Help

Stop Guessing When It Comes To A Bed Wetting Solution


Enuresis Treatment Center


Dear Lorie:


Wow, how can I sum up one of the best endeavors I have ever participated in?  At the start of your bedwetting program, my son was 10 and I had already exhausted every “solution or system” I could get my hands on to end his bedwetting, tried to cope with bedwetting, tried handling bed wetting.  Our pediatrician, as much as I have faith in him, was of no help with older children bed wetting, as he only would say he will grow out of it.  We could not figure out how to stop bedwetting for my son.  How to stop bedwetting was a question I use to ask myself everyday. We tried moisture alarms and they were no help. So in total frustration and despair, I hit the Internet one last time for anything that could help him. I simply typed in “how to stop bedwetting” and I found the website for Enuresis Treatment Center and began to read about your bedwetting program.  I put a lot of thought and consideration into the program and spent much time reading the parent comments.  I realized my son was a sound sleeper.  The deep sleep was causing the bed-wetting.   I talked with my son and we decided to make the first phone call.


From our first conversation with Enuresis Treatment Center I had renewed hope.  From the moment forward I never doubted the treatment plans success.  Through much education and hard work our dreams of dry nights have finally been realized after 11 years.  I cannot emphasize how much this has changed all of our lives.  Our son has a freedom to do things for the first time in his life.  Spend the nights and trips out of town are no longer scary prospects.  He doesn’t have a “dirty little secret” anymore.We cannot believe the bedwetting help you gave us.  Most importantly it has given me a child who wakes up with a big smile on his face each day!  These things are invaluable to us.


Lorie, I cannot thank you enough for all of the help you have provided my son.     You have been with us every step of the way guiding and tailoring the program to fit my older child bed wetting.  You have always been a bright and encouraging ray of sunshine.  You possess a unique ability to handle a delicate situation with respect and compassion.  For this I am forever grateful and would recommend this program to anyone with a chronic bedwetting problem.  After all in a few months we went from big nightly wets to none at all.  I truly believe that we could have NEVER achieved this without you and this program.


Thank you so very much,


Cindy Y.

Bedwetting Treatment for Teenagers


Daria Search for a Bedwetting Treatment for Teenagers

So often, children or teenagers think they are the only one who wets the bed. 

bedwetting in teenagers

We know it is important to learn you are not the only one, it is not your fault and we are the leading authority for the treatment of bed wetting in teenagers.

Here are some thoughts from Darja regarding her experience with our program.

“Before I started this program, I hated wearing pull-ups every night.  It was embarrassing!  How can a doctor think a teenager is going to be happy wearing a diaper… That is not a bedwetting solution, it is a lousy excuse.  Just tell me you do not know how to stop bedwetting – my bedwetting.

The Enuresis Treatment Center helped me a lot. Who knew there was a specialist for bedwetting treatment for teenagers like me!  And… understand what someone my age is going through – the embarrassment, frustration, lower than low self-esteem.

First, I was a little nervous, but then everything got better!  The way my brain began to feel with much better sleep was amazing.  Waking up dry more and more regularly was amazing.  Some parts were hard hard but at the end I looked back and said it was worth it!

My support counselor, Sue k, was very encouraging and very nice.  She has years of experience working with teenagers.  She is also a nurse, so she really understands.

I am very thankful that there was a specialty bedwetting center – I just called everyone who works at this center a miracle worker.  They had all the steps important to my problem and ways to help me leave the bedwetting behind.

I have a new life.

Thank you Darja, we always appreciate hearing from someone who has just completed treatment.

Bedwetting in Teenagers – How Can This Happen?

A mom of a 16-year-old wanted to thank the treatment team for all their help.  Her son located our clinic and urged his mom to call to learn about our bedwetting solution.

Dear Mrs. Moore:

I have an 16 year old son that just successfully completed your bedwetting program. My teenage son had a bed wetting problem all his life and finally took matters into his own hands to stop bedwetting.   He found out about your bedwetting clinic and pressured us to call and start this program. I was very apprehensive believing my son would feel ill at ease, but I was pleasantly surprised.  Our treatment advisor, Michael, was very professional and my son had absolutely no problem following the bed wetting treatment plan developed for him.

After years of taking enuresis medication pills and using the bed wetting nasal sprays, which had side affects, and still wetting the bed, my son was at his wits end. He was on the internet and easily found your website.

My son kept pushing us until we agreed to make an appointment.  Thank God.  After 6 months of treatment my son no longer wets the bed.  Each month saw an improvement.  He has been dry for 5 months and is now looking forward to college. The cost of the program was well worth it and we do not regret making the decision.  How can a doctor look a sophomore in high school and tell he will not be wetting the bed when he graduates!

I decided to write this letter so parents with older children did not continue to think nothing can be done because a doctor tells them to wait.

I cannot thank you enough for the help for ending the deep-sleep bed wetting.   You are the specialist that really understood his sleep and how it caused the bedwetting.  

We worked hand in hand toward the same final goal.  My son is confident and pleased that things worked out so well – this is what he hoped for and he was not disappointed with the handling of your program.
