Johandej: Hi, our daughter is now 9 yo, when she was a baby, we got her pretty quick potty trained, however just last few months she started to pee ion her sleep again.
We tried all sorts of correction means, comfort her, let her pee before and also during the night, "pee-clock", getting angry, nothing seems to work.
Sometimes she is dry for days then suddenly couple of nights in a row.
Anyone have same experiences or sollutions?
We are not keen on going to a dokter with her.
Hope for help
I've read that bedwetting in children can be a deeper issue. As abuse for example.It will be wise to take your little one to the doctor or a counsellor. Also, you can ask your wife to have an open communication with her as well at an appropriate time.
Still consider the Dr or counsellor or therapist vs an online forum.
Just checked your profile. Why would you allow someone to comment 'cute and sexy' of a picture with your daughter in it?
Man, you better not fcking be one of those fcked in the head online creeps.
garyrot: I had a brother who wore diapers until the age of 10 due to bed wetting. Those days know one know what caused it. His son had the same problem. When he started school, they mention it to the family doctor. He was given a new medication that just have been approved by FDA. He to the medication for a couple years. Never wet his bed or need the diapers to wear. I think it is about the age of 11 when most stop the wetting.
In the early 1990's, there was a TV movie made about bed wetting. It was at that time, the medicine had been developed, so kids would not wet. If I remember correctly, Actor Michael Landon was such a person. The TV movie was based on his story.
Johandej: I am going into this, try to postpone visit to the doctor as long as possible; they only want to sell pills and hardly ever have the right sollution. furthermore, they always jump to conclusions
Inner Animal: Is it still happening? if so I really think she needs to see some one as she may have issues that only a doctor can help with. Please consider taking her to see some one who can help her. She could be lacking bladder control, have a uti etc it could really be anything.

Johandej: Hi thank you, we dont like to go to doctors for all sorts of reasons. She seems better now, only happens occaisonnaly and seems more a mental reason.
Johandej: I spoke too soon; happened again. Seems the days she worries about stuff, she has harder time to keep dry at nights. A totally worry free life is not expected so..she needs to be trained to stay dry. Tips are welcome
Inner Animal: That sounds like anxiety and stress. Also if she has a nightmare she may struggle to hold on depending on her age.
Johandej: Mja maybe, sounds reasonable, A lot happens and changes in her life. Still, she should stay dry in bed...right?
johan NL: Talked with several of you in private. Origin of the bedwetting seems clear. not much we can do about it. Any tips on how to live with the problem and minimise the workload? Already have a matras safety sheet.
