When is Bedwetting a Concern?
If a child above the age of 5 continues to wet the bed.
If a child who has been dry for months begins to wet the bed all of a sudden.
If there is painful urination along with bedwetting.
If there is red or pink urine, excessive thirst, or hard stools.
What Causes Bedwetting?
Bedwetting can be caused due to a number of reasons that can be treated with the use of the best bed wetting alarms in Australia among other things. Here are some of these reasons:
If the child’s bladder is not fully developed, it may not be able to hold the urine that is produced throughout the night, ultimately resulting in bed wetting.
Bedwetting by a child who has always been dry at night can be a symptom of diabetes. Other signs of diabetes apart from bedwetting include weight loss, excessive thirst or fatigue.
Infection of the urinary tract
If your child exhibits bed wetting due to a urinary tract infection (UTI), it is vital that you take your child to visit a good doctor in Melbourne.
The inability of the nerves to signal the brain regarding a full bladder
When the bladder is full, certain nerves signal the brain regarding the full bladder, prompting the child to relieve themselves. However, often times these nerves are not completely developed, resulting in their inability to signal to the brain that the bladder is full.
This could also happen among children who are deep sleepers. In such cases, paediatricians recommend a bedwetting alarm that timely prompts the child to wake up and visit the bathroom.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Children with ADD have more chances of wetting the bed than others.
Abnormal development of the organs
Bedwetting is likely if the organs such as the kidney or the bladder are underdeveloped. It could also be caused if the nerves that supply to the kidneys and bladder are underdeveloped.
If there has been a history of bedwetting in the family where a parent or someone in the immediate family has had the issue, there is a high chance that your child will wet the bed.
