Your Bedwetting Plan

Until your child grows out of his/her bedwetting, it can be a difficult time for both of you. It may be helpful to develop a plan to help manage bedwetting and potentially lessen embarrassing moments and awkwardness that your child may feel during this difficult period. There are a number of bedwetting solutions out there to help you manage your child’s bedwetting, from behavioural modification, medication or products such as absorbent pyjama pants.

Some children respond to just one kind of treatment very well while other kids will see an improvement using a combination of treatments. As each child is different, use trial and error to establish what solution works for your family. Try one treatment, if it doesn’t work try another and so on.
