Title: bedwetting
Post by: mavey's_mom on June 04, 2010, 08:25:18 pm
My nephew is already 8 years old but still uses diaper at night. My son is only 3 years old but doesn't use diapers anymore. What's the best advice for his parents?

8 years old, grade 3 in school? No na dapat.

Think the child can already understand that he doesn't need it anymore. Or maybe, the parents just thinking of the convenience of waking up to assist son to the bathroom at the middle of the night... hehe kasi my niece- 8 y/o now will only go to the bathroom to wiwi with kasama kasi natatakot pumunta mag-isa sa banyo kaya the mom or the dad will accompany her pag-wiwi sa madaling araw...

Or use arinola muna to train him. :)

aii ganun na hahassle siguro yung maam and dad niya na bumangon sa madaling araw kaya pinapadiaper nalang nila, but my 9 months old baby pinapatrain na namin siya magwiwi and magpoop sa arinola..so far so good naman sa gabi nalang siya nakadiaper, kasi pag nawiwi siya tinuturo niya arinola..hehe

if your nephew is still betwetting. have him urinate before sleeping and tell him not to drink anything before going to sleep.

there may be both reasons for bed wetting at that age, both physical and psychological (but perhaps more of this). since the boy is already 8 years old, he can control his bladder and knows when he has to go to the bathroom, as he only uses diaper at night. mommies here may be right that it's more of the convenience of the parents not to be awakened also.

arinola, as one suggested here, might be an answer. explaining to the boy how to use the arinola, why he has to use it and the consequences if he doesn't use it should be made.

i suggest that the parents nurture their kid even more but that it would be better if the kid doesn't wear diapers any longer.

as to the best age for potty training, there is another thread here at the forum. there are also readiness signs that babies are ready to be potty trained - does he exhibit signs that he will urinate or move his bowel? does his periods to urinate and move his bowel more or less constant? if yes, then the mom/caregiver can show the baby/babies to the toilet at those hours that he usually urinates and moves his bowel.

Hi mommy
I can relate to this, I still wet my bed when I was until 10 years old. Kala namin psychological, pinacheckup na ko ng mom ko when I was 8, and my doctor prescribed some meds. After a couple of years, and some training as well (such as my mom waking me up in the middle of the night when Im starting to pee/we co-sleep) and may potty potty beside the bed. naging okay na bladder ko

train the child to wiwi at night before sleeping and konti na lang ang paginom ng water or milk. Effective sya sa nephew ko :)

HI po sissies.. share lang po me.. sa daughter ko po, si mother ko ang matiyaga na gumising in the middle of the night and then kinakarga si baby , para mag wiwi.. Then like mommy KanishaNicole   , gumamit rin po ng arinola,kinakausap po na pag mag wiwi dun na po mag wiwi and sometimes poopsie.. so at the age of 2/ 1 / 2  no more diaper na po..

Like sis Carlsant, we trained our daughter to pee before going to bed. Luckily, she never had any accidents in bed.  :)

@mavey's_mom Naku, your nephew shouldn't wear diapers at night anymore. He should pee before bed time and be trained to get up in the middle of the night to pee (several times).

I wrote this potty training guide for younger kids in mind, but maybe it can help your nephew as well: http://greeneggsandmoms.com/potty-training-hello-potty-goodbye-pampers.html

Mommies,yan din po problema ko ngayon.
kahit anong train namin sa son ko wala pa rin pgbabago :(
turning 6 na po sa July,tinigil na namin ang pagnappy niya
para masanay sana kaso lagi talagang basa bed niya.hindi lang isang beses.
ginawa kasi namin nilagyan sya ng arinola,alarm ako every 2 hrs para paihiin
at nilalagyan ng towel sa ilalim ng puwit niya kaso mga 3 time kami mgpapalit
sa loob ng isang gabi kasi hidni talaga sya nagigising para gamitin ang arinola.
at kahit basa na sya,hidni pa rin gigising,ikaw na lang maawa na natutulog syang basa.
minsan kasi kahit may alarm kami,nakakatamad na bumangon kasi 3 times ba naman
dapat sya gisingin sa loob lang ng isang gabi....

ano pa kaya dapat kong gawin..milk lang naman inom niya before going to bed.

i remembere how we train our son before...tinatakot pa namen na pag umihi pa sya sa bed niya ulit,kakainin na sya ng malaking ipis...
2-3 hrs before his sleeping time, dun namen sya pinapainom milk or any liquid.ihi before matulog. and then may bote sa tabi ng bed niya. after 2 hrs ng pagtulog niya gisingin ko sya at paihiin.masisira kasi tulog niya pag maglalakad pa sya papunta cr. tapos after 4 hrs na ulit yun hanggang sa paggising niya.. tyaga lang talaga. hanggang sa matuto... :) matagal din yun, di ko na matandaan...basta pag nagising sya walang ihi sa bed laging may reward yun.kahit small prizes lang happy na anak ko... :)

mum_06 For kids kasi (well the younger ones) it's normal for them to wet the bed even if they are potty trained in the day time because of two things:

- their bladder is small
- the sleep soundly
[Source: http://www.parents.com/toddlers-preschoolers/potty-training/problems/potty-training-common-problems/?page=6]

In your son's case, it's possible na he really sleeps soundly so he is unable to wake up in time to pee. He might also have an overactive bladder - how often does he go to the bathroom during the daytime?

Anyway, it's best to consult with your pedia soonest, I'm sure they can give you sound advice or refer to you a specialist.

My eldest daughter who is 5 yrs old now, still wets her bed sometimes at night. As I observe, minsan due to anxiety. Kung medyo napagalitan sya bago matulog or na over excite o kaya pag malamig ang weather. Saka natatakot kasi sya umihi mag isa pag naka-dim light lang kaya pag ganon, before I sleep I open the light para anytime maihi sya, she will do it by herself kasi naka ready na ang arinola sa bedroom.

Most of the time, before bed time pinapaihi namin sila. Tapos pag tapos uminom ng milk at midnight, pinapaihi namin sila uli. Yung boy ko, naiinis pagna wee wee pag madaling araw pero hindi na sya nag be-bedwetting since 3 years old. Pati yung 2 years old ko, marunong na mag pigil ng ihi kaso natatakot akong magka UTI kaya diaper pa rin sya. Pero pag 3 years old na, hindi na pwede mag diaper at night.

I remember that i used to pee a lot din in bed when I was bigger. Of course now I don't anymore, eventually I got used to getting up when I had to pee.

But like what I said earlier, if you feel na your kid shouldn't be wetting the bed na especially after 5 years of age, consult your pedia about it. Baka the cause is something else na.

subscribing...

i'm a bit concerned for hubby's nephew. he still wets the bed at night, and even in the afternoons when he sleeps.... And he's already turning 10 this October. Ang mahirap nito, when we tell him na he really should train himself na wag magwiwi sa higaan kasi baka tuksuhin sya ng mga kaklase at kalaro niya, he just makes up 'excuses' like 'Ok lang yan, mana kasi ako sa Mama ko na nagwiwi sa kama kahit malaki na.'

Para bang he had psyched himself into thinking na ok lang yon kasi ganun din ang mama niya before.

Ano po kaya dapat gawin? I've researched a bit about this and at 9-10 years old talagang medyo hindi na normal na nagbebedwetting pa on a regular basis. There are some sites where I read na possibly psychological ang problem, or bladder control, and sa US ata they actually even prescribe meds to bigger kids who still wet their beds.

KVsmommy - ask your nephews parents to go to a specialist na. It could very well be the reasons you mentioned. And honestly, telling a kid that he should do something so people won't laugh at him is the wrong approach.

It puts shame into something that he shouldn't be ashamed of (if you know what I mean). Instead, be more supportive and help him solve the problem - he's old enough to understand that he shouldn't we the bed at his age because it's not normal (and not because people will make fun of him).

Just my two cents. Hope it helps. :)

sis Anne Mercado: thanks for the advice, really appreciate it. :) We would try our best to convince my MIL, who's taking care of hubby's nephew (separated kasi yung parents, and always in absentia. :() to have him checked by a specialist soon.

I agree with you sis about not using shame as a catalyst for him to take action...though MIL actually already did try a more positive approach. Waking him up in the middle of night or pag madaling araw para magwiwi so he won't wet the bed, telling him that he should pee first before sleeping and don't drink too many fluids before he goes to bed... And it's not just now that we've been trying to help him out when it comes to solving that 'problem'. Siguro mga a year or so na din. We thought 'the other way around' might help, na baka mahiya sya sa friends niya kaya di na sya magwiwi sa bed...Di pa din nagwork. :(

Our biggest dilemma now (hubby and I) is how we would convince MIL to bring the child to a specialist because of bedwetting. :( She's a bit 'close-minded' about things like that, very traditional.. She'd probably even get mad at us for suggesting that because she'd say bedwetting does not require the help of a doctor.... But we'll try our best to convince her para iconsider niya yung idea...

@KVsmommy Ay... I understand your dilemma about your mother in law. :D Sana may mga blogs for how to deal with mother in laws, noh?! Haha! Okay I guess it's your husbands job to convince her. Di kaya super small ng bladder na nephew mo?

Keep us updated a! And I'm hopping over to your blog now!

my daughter is already 8 and still wets the bed though we make her pee before bedtime.  what i did is that i'd set the clock to 12 midnight then have her pee again.  but there are times, that due to being tired from work, i won't be able to wake up and make her pee.  surely, she'll bedwet.

yes, she also bedwets even on afternoon naps.  so i ask the helpers to make her pee in the middle of her nap.  patience lang and persistence on our part.  eventually they'll outgrow it.

My son now 6 still bed wets occasionally yun pala dahil sa milk niya na pinapainom ko before bed time. Even if I make him pee before before hitting the bed, he still sometimes wet the bed. E kelan ko pa pwede ibigay yung milk niya? Immediately after dinner? Baka mabundat. He'd make suka pag nabubusog masyado. What to do?
