Wetting bed after 5 years of age

Wetting bed after 5 years of age

Some parents think that the child’s bedwetting has little to do with it.

In fact, the older the child is, the more times wetting the bed at night, and the longer the protracted time, the more difficult it is to control the symptoms of the wetting bed, and it will seriously affect the child’s healthy growth.

  Therefore, Director Yu reminded parents that no matter what causes the child’s bedwetting, parents should take their child to the hospital for examination and treatment as soon as possible.

In addition to medical treatment under the guidance of a doctor, the cooperation of parents is also very important.

  When the child is over 10 years old, he wets the bed at night. He dare not let the child drink water and eat fruit before going to bed. He also wets the bed at night.

Many mothers are very anxious, go to the hospital to ask if there is something wrong with the child’s bedwetting, what should I do?

  Yu Suming, director of the Department of Pediatrics of the First Affiliated Hospital of the General Hospital of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, said that children with normal development can usually control urination at the age of 2-3. Occasionally wetting of the bed after 3 years of age is normal.Most children no longer wet the bed at night after the age of five.

If a child is wetting in bed at night after 5 years of age, and the frequency reaches more than twice a month, it is medically called “night enuresis”.

  The causes of pediatric enuresis include genetic factors (if the parents have been a child with nocturnal enuresis, the child has a 1/2 chance of becoming ill), reduced functional bladder capacity, psychological factors, excessive sleep, insufficient antidiuretic hormone secretion, hiddenSpina bifida and so on (about 30% of enuresis in children with enuresis due to spina bifida).

There are also parents who did not train their children to urinate and did not develop a good habit of going to the toilet with urine.

We should correct the bedwetting of children, but we must not be too anxious, nor can we scold and discriminate. This will increase the child’s psychological burden, cause the child to have an inferiority complex, and be reluctant to associate with children.

At the same time, it will affect the child’s intelligence, height development, depression, autism, anxiety, doubt and other mental and psychological disorders.

  Also pay attention to training children’s good habits.

Do not drink milk after 6 pm, do not drink or drink less water after dinner, do not drink juice caffeine or diuretic beverages.

Develop a habit of urination before bedtime. Parents should pay attention to the time when the child often wets the bed at night, and use the alarm clock to wake the child to the toilet half an hour in advance. This way, you can develop the habit of getting up and urinating on time to reduce the chance of wetting the bed.

  Children should not be overly excited before going to bed. Do not engage in time activities or watch thrilling movies. Take a bath before sleeping to relax your nervousness so that your child can sleep comfortably.

You can also let your child do diarrhea training during the day, which is also helpful for treating bedwetting.
