What is Bedwetting? Can Bed wetting Be Cured? How to Stop Bed wetting? – Chummie Can Help!
Most commonly found in young children, bedwetting (also known as enuresis, nocturnal enuresis, primary enuresis, and diurnal enuresis) is a sleep disorder caused by an undeveloped or stressed nervous system and/or urinary system. It is the result of both the nervous system and urinary system involuntarily releasing urine during the night hours while the victim is in a deep sleep. Since it is a problem that seemingly only occurs during the night and while the child is asleep, it has been appropriately labeled as a sleep disorder.
Causes of Bedwetting (Enuresis)
What is bedwetting? Research has thus far determined that bedwetting is an inherited problem rather than a suddenly developed issue or sign of bodily trauma. This is why the problem is less common in adolescents. Being inherited, bedwetting is discovered early on within the first five or six years of a young person”s life. Only in rare cases is bed wetting caused by a non-sleep related problem, and in those cases, the culprit is usually some sort of urinary tract infection.
Over 7 million American children suffer from bed wetting. Your child is not alone! The problem affects half as many girls as it affects boys. The typical age range that this sleep disorder affects begins from birth and can last until the teen years. It is important to remember that isolated cases of bed wetting in young children is not normal. When children continue bedwetting after the age of five (in males) and four (in females) that parents should become concerned and start to use a treatment option such as the Chummie Bedwetting Alarm.
Interestingly, most young people who suffer from bed wetting share this problem with someone else in the family. In fact, the chances of a child wetting the bed are increased by 40 per cent if one of his or her parents suffered the same problem in the past.
The Effects of Bedwetting On A Young Child
A child”s inability to control bodily functions can have a serious impact on how that child perceives himself. Most bed wetting children quickly develop a sense of low self-esteem, embarrassment, and guilt, yet they are not quick to discuss the problem with parents or pediatricians. Care must be taken to assure young, developing children that bed wetting is not their fault, that it is a sleeping disorder, and that there are some tools available to help.
