Help, my child still wets the bed!
No need to worry, your child is most definitely not the only one. Lots of (younger) children regularly wet their beds during their sleep, though not every child wets the bed. We only speak of bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis, when a child age 5 or above wakes up wet at night once or multiple times per week. Does this apply to your child? A bedwetting alarm in combination with alarm training would be helpful!

We understand quite well that you and your little one/ want to get rid of bedwetting as soon as possible. Sleepless nights because a child needs its bed changed, are no fun! Next to this issue, children often are ashamed and do not dare to have sleepovers at their friends because they are feared to wet the bed.
Don’t worry! Fortunately, there are several ways to stop bedwetting. The bedwetting solutions from Rodger will meet the needs of your child. We would like to tell you more about this.
What causes bedwetting
First, we go back to the reason why children actually wet their beds. Why does this happen? People mostly think bedwetting is caused by a child drinking too much before going to sleep or sleeping too deep. Neither is true. Bedwetting does not always have a medical basis, often more factors are involved.
In most cases, children wetting the bed is because they are not aware of the fact they need to pee. The brain does not pick up signals of a full bladder, so the need for peeing is not noticed.
With wetting the bed, we are speaking of primary bedwetting when a child has not left his bed dry for 6 months. When a child regularly wets his bed while he has had a dry bed for a while, approximately 6 months, we speak of secondary bedwetting. The cause is mostly due to an (painful) emotional experience like a divorce, death or moving elsewhere. Did you experience problems at an earlier age with bedwetting too? There could be a chance you have carried on those “bedwetting-genes”, inheritance could be causing this too.
Shortly: bedwetting is not a disease, but it is a difficult problem.
