Bed wetting also known as enuresis is one of the most common problems affecting children. Enuresis is involuntarily passing urine mostly at night although some children also have this problem during the day.
The percentage of children who wet beds at night is as high 20% up to the age of 5. This percentage steadily decreases and by the age of 15 or above, only 2% of the population have this problem. Therapee is a alternate solution to deal with bed wetting without the use of medication.
Bed wetting in 5 year olds
Enuresis is of two types. Primary enuresis is when children have the problem since childhood and secondary enuresis is when the child restarts bed wetting after a dry spell of at least 6 months. In younger children, about two-thirds of the enuretics are boys.
The reason for bed wetting is when children are unable to recognize the signals sent to the brain when their bladders become full. So children tend to relax the sphincter muscles, (circular muscles that keep the bladder closed) instead of contracting them. Dribbling is daytime bed wetting mostly between the age of 4-8. These children while concentrating on their play or TV do not recognize the bladder signal. Once they start to urinate, they contract the sphincter muscles resulting in spotting on the clothes.
Dealing with bed wetting
Millions of young children have bed wetting issues. So children having this problem have to be dealt with delicately. Only a very small percentage of children wet beds because of medical issues. About 10% of children may have hidden fears or anxiety and emotional problems and also heredity. The bladder reflexes in these children may take longer to develop. Also, some children sleep very deeply and are unable to recognize the signals from the brain.
Children should be assured that bedwetting will stop as they older. Plastic or waterproof sheets can be used to reduce the laundry. Less fluid should be given before bed time and the child taken to the toilet before sleep. A small lamp will help children find the way to the toilet when they wake up. Threapee is a trusted and safe solution for bedwetting.
