Enuresis-Bed Wetting In Children

Homeopathic clinic
  • Enuresis.

    Involuntary urination during sleep for more than three months or so is called Bedwetting.

  • Wet smelly sheets and pajamas embarrass the child and parents as well. But there is no need to despair. Bed-wetting is not a sign that you have not trained your child for it or you are an unresponsible parent. It’s often just a normal part of a child’s development.
  • Generally, bed-wetting before age of seven isn’t a concern. At this age, your child may still be developing nighttime bladder control.
  • If bed-wetting continues, treat the problem with patience and understanding. Lifestyle changes, bladder training, moisture alarms, and sometimes medication may help reduce bed-wetting.


  • Most kids are fully toilet trained by age five, but there’s really no target date for developing complete bladder control. Between the ages of five and seven, bed-wetting remains a problem for some children. After seven years of age, a small number of children still wet the bed.

When to see a doctor

Most children outgrow bed-wetting on their own — but some need a little help. In other cases, bed-wetting may be a sign of an underlying condition that needs medical attention.

Consult your child’s doctor if:

  • Your child still wets the bed after age seven
  • Your child starts to wet the bed after a few months of being dry at night
  • Bed-wetting is accompanied by painful urination, unusual thirst, pink or red urine, hard stools, or snoring


No one knows for sure what causes bed-wetting, but various factors may play a role:

  • A small bladder. Your child’s bladder may not be developed enough to hold urine produced during the night
  • Inability to recognize a full bladder. If the nerves that control the bladder are slow to mature, a full bladder may not wake your child — especially if your child is a deep sleeper.
  • A hormone imbalance. During childhood, some kids don’t produce enough anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) to slow nighttime urine production.
  • Urinary tract infection. This infection can make it difficult for your child to control urination. Signs and symptoms may include bed-wetting, daytime accidents, frequent urination, red or pink urine, and pain during urination.
  • Sleep apnea. Sometimes bed-wetting is a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a condition in which the child’s breathing is interrupted during sleep — often due to inflamed or enlarged tonsils or adenoids. Other signs and symptoms may include snoring and daytime drowsiness.
  • Diabetes. For a child who’s usually dry at night, bed-wetting may be the first sign of diabetes. Other signs and symptoms may include passing large amounts of urine at once, increased thirst, fatigue, and weight loss despite a good appetite.
  • Chronic constipation. The same muscles are used to control urine and stool elimination. When constipation is long term, these muscles can become dysfunctional and contribute to bed-wetting at night.
  • A structural problem in the urinary tract or nervous system. Rarely, bed-wetting is related to a defect in the child’s neurological system or urinary system.

Risk factors

Bed-wetting can affect anyone, but it’s twice as common in boys as in girls. Several factors have been associated with an increased risk of bed-wetting, including:

  • Stress and anxiety. Stressful events — such as becoming a big brother or sister, starting a new school, or sleeping away from home — may trigger bed-wetting.
  • Family history. If one or both of a child’s parents wet the bed as children, their child has a significant chance of wetting the bed, too.
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Bed-wetting is more common in children who have ADHD.

Side effects or other Complications

Although frustrating, bed-wetting without a physical cause doesn’t pose any health risks. However, bed-wetting can create some issues for your child, including:

  • Guilt and embarrassment, which can lead to low self-esteem
  • Loss of opportunities for social activities, such as sleepovers and camp
  • Rashes on the child’s bottom and genital area — especially if your child sleeps in wet underwear.

The Homeopathic approach towards bedwetting

  • Childhood is the most subtle phase of life for any living organism. The problem of bedwetting is a mixture of physical and psychological disorders. Sometimes it can be corrected by counseling only and requires no medical intervention. The use of medicine is favored only if it is extremely required.
  • Holac Clinic HONESTLY beware you the use of casual Homeopathic medicines /counter Homeopathic formulations for this condition. These medicines can affect the next phases of the life of your child.
  • There is no disease-specific medicine in Homeopathy And they are very very personal to the patient..….. Bedwetting is no exception.
  • Please do not take any Homeopathic medicine for it WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR HOMEOPATH
