My daughter has just turned 10. We are still having wet beds. sometimes she will go days without wetting, other nights she will wet twice during the one night. We have not yet tried the bed alarm, do you think this is something we should do?? or will she just grow out of it. I tried putting her into pull-ups, the adult ones, but she can wet through those.
it is not unusual for children to experience periods of dry nights then a return to wetting as they travel the road toward nighttime continence. The good news is that one of the main signs that permanent dry nights are just around the corner is a reduction in the number of mornings children wake-up wet!! Unfortunately we are unable to predict how long this process will take. You have two options available to you. Firstly, you can just wait it out, knowing that she will eventually outgrow the bedwetting on her own. Continue using absorbent pants so that you’re not having to deal with lots of wet sheets – I would recommend using DryNites over adult absorbent pants, if they do not fit her properly she is likely to experience leakage and if you use ones that are designed for day use they will not be absorbent enough to hold the amount of urine produced overnight. Secondly, you can try the conditioning alarm, this is definitely the most effective treatment available and experiences better outcomes with children who wet less frequently like your daughter. If you do decide to pursue this option I recommend doing so with the assistance of a continence advisor as outcomes depend on parents receiving proper instruction on how to use it. Good luck!!
