Pee Problems: Bedwetting to Urinary Tract Concerns

0   people commented
on this article


It's not necessary or even healthy to be overly focused on what comes out of your child's body. But being alert to the urinary symptoms outlined here can ensure that if there is a problem, your child will get the treatment he needs. Most urinary problems are easily fixed if they are identified early.


Even after your preschooler learns to use the toilet and stays dry all day, usually between ages 2 and 4, she may still wet the bed at night at least once in a while. Until the age of 6 or 7 this is normal and not important. After this age, bedwetting is still normal, but it can be upsetting to your child and keep her from enjoying social activities such as overnights and sleepovers.

Never, ever punish or criticize your child for wetting the bed. It is not intentional and not under his control. Often the age at which nighttime dryness begins runs in families; fathers who wet until age 10, for example, may have sons who do the same thing. A variety of techniques can be used to address this problem. Talk it over with your health care provider if you have a child over 6 who wets at night.
