Is your child or adolescent experiencing bedwetting? Are wet sheets and soggy pajamas a recurring worry for your child? Is fear of having an accident preventing your child from developing age-appropriate friendships?
If so, you are not alone. Bedwetting is surprisingly common, with the National Institutes of Health estimating that seven million children in the United States wet their beds on a regular basis.
There is an alternative to invasive urology clinics
Often, pediatricians refer families to urology clinics. It may seem reasonable to test your child for urinary capacity, bladder capacity, and flow, but these invasive observations of your child’s private functions can be confusing to your child and don’t necessarily address the issues.
They can increase feelings of shame and low self-esteem, while not teaching your child independence and confidence.
Dr. Geizhals believes that bedwetting should and can be treated at home, in a family setting.
