Tips to Help Your Child #ConquerBedWetting

Each year our school hosts a uniform drive.  Parents are encouraged to donate worn uniforms to our children's closet.  The closet holds children's clothing in various sizes and there is roughly 1 complete outfit for each student from Pre-K to 5th grade.  When kids are in daycare and preschool, parents are often asked to provide a change of clothes.  However, when kids begin elementary school many times they come to school with the clothes they have on and if they have an accident, parents rush from their job to the school to drop off a change of clothes.  Our Children's Closet has helped remedy this problem.

By providing polo shirts, blouses, skirts, skorts, pants, shoes, socks, undies and more.   Why undies and more you ask?  Lots of kids have *ahem* accidents at school.  These accidents may be signs of enuresis, more commonly known as bedwetting.  

Many children experience incidents of bedwetting while being potty trained.  However, bedwetting in older, school-aged children can be embarrassing to the child as they may feel they're the only one with the condition.   Trust me, I know.  I had a child who suffered with enuresis and we tried everything from plastic sheets to waking our kid up throughout the night to relieve himself.  Our pediatrician was instrumental in helping us help our kid and understand enuresis is quite common. 

Did you know...
  1. 7 out of 10 of kids still wet the bed at age 7
  2. 15% still wet the bed at age 5
  3. 5% of children between ages 10 - 15 may suffer from occasional bouts of enuresis
Here are a few tips to help your child conquer bedwetting:

  • Talk to your child's pediatrician
  • Limit fluids at bedtime
  • Make sure your child empties bladder before going to bed
  • Use absorbent training pants like Pampers UnderJams
