Bedwetting in children 6 years and older
Bed wetting is also called ‘nocturnal enuresis’
While most children do eventually grow out of wetting the bed, the potential psychological and behavioral problems caused in the mean time can be massive.
Well there can be a very simple and easy answer to stopping the agony forever.
Bedwetting is a common childhood problem and dryness at night occurs at different ages in children. Remaining dry at night is a natural development, it occurs when the link controlling that part of the body matures.
Nocturnal Enuresis is the medical term used to describe lack of bladder control at night in a person who has reached an age at which control is to be expected (usually between 5 and 6 years of age).
The children are not necessarily very heavy sleepers. While commonly described as sleeping too heavily to awaken, the wetting has nothing to do with dreaming nor are they being lazy or naughty. It is quite unconscious; from the child’s point of view it is a matter of going to bed dry and waking up wet, with no recollection of it happening.
With lots of children who wet the bed, there is a family history of bedwetting.
Bedwetting is a problem that can cause stress for both children and parents. The child may experience low self esteem and/or lack of self confidence. More and more Pediatric Departments recommend you to seek treatment rather than thinking ‘they will grow out of it’ – some never do, and that’s very common and normal.
If the child is usually dry by day and passes urine normally, bedwetting is very unlikely to be the result of any bladder or kidney disease. However, if the child is ill or feverish, dribbles urine day and night or has pain, you should consult your doctor.
The Night Hawk Bed Wetting Alarm is a ‘conditioned response enuresis alarm’, which means that it subconsciously teaches your child not to wet the bed. It does this by letting him or her know as soon as wetting starts.
In order to cure bedwetting, the Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm MUST wake your child.
The Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm wakes 98% of children who try the alarm within the first few times when used in both sound and vibration mode. While some children are cured in just days, a typical cure takes 8 weeks.
Night Hawk Bed Wetting Alarm is a “wireless” bedwetting alarm. There are no wires to be routed between sensor and alarm or to be rerouted after each wetting episode. [Often bedwetting occurs up to 3 times per night.] And there are no wires to limit movement during sleep or get twisted or tangled.
The Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm is compact and self-contained unit that attaches to the front of ordinary briefs with a single plastic clip.
Is Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm suitable for both Boys and Girls?
Absolutely! Simply place the Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm a little lower on the underpants for girls.
Place the Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm in the fly of a snug fitting pre-laundered pair of boys cotton briefs. Cotton briefs are best as this type of fabric allows moisture to wick quickly up to the sensor. Secure the Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm in place with one of the clips provided, clipping through the cloth. The clip must be used or urine might leak into the alarm causing damage and void the guarantee and warranty. Clips can be lifted out with a thumb nail. Do not use boxer shorts.
Using two pairs of cotton panties, place the Night Hawk Bed wetting Alarm inside the outer pair of panties and clip through the cloth to secure the Alarm so the sensors are against the inner panties fabric. Boys briefs can be used instead if desired. The Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm should be positioned as shown with the sensor against an inner layer of fabric for quick response. In order to sense the first few drops of urine, the sensor must be within 2 or 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) of the urethral outlet. This may require that the Night Hawk be placed somewhat lower on the girls than the boys.
Do not have the Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm touch the skin since the perspiration can turn on the alarm.
If your child is currently wearing pull-ups, these can still be used but only over the briefs or panties.
