Saturday 17th October marks ‘World Bedwetting Day‘ aimed at raising awareness of bedwetting as a medical condition that affects both children and their families.
Bedwetting (Primary Nocturnal Enuresis) is classed as a medical condition when a child has been unable to remain dry at night for at least 6 months.
Bedwetting tends to affect boys more than girls and can be due to a large number of reasons, all of which are treatable if diagnosed early. Early intervention is also important to ensure the condition doesn’t impact children’s self-esteem.
Not only does bedwetting cause distress to children upon waking, it can also lead to low self-esteem, self-isolation and worry regarding ‘fear of discovery’ by both their parents and their friends.
It also discourages children from visiting friends and staying overnight away from home.
Bedwetting can be treated through simple behavioural techniques to help your child understand how to associate the feeling of a full bladder with visiting the bathroom during the night.
To show our support TensCare are offering 25% discount on our Dry Night Trainer Bedwetting Alarm – a drug-free, more natural treatment using behavioural techniques to help train your child out of bedwetting.
The alarm simply fits around your child’s wrist like a watch, and connects to your child’s pyjamas. During the night, if the alarm detects liquid on the child’s pyjamas, an alarm will sound – waking the child to alert them that they need to empty their bladder.
Eventually the child will recognise the feeling of a full bladder and learn that they need to wake and visit the bathroom or will learn to ‘hold on’ until morning without the need of the alarm.
Used alongside a reward scheme, the Dry Night Trainer can help your child to stay dry at night in just a few weeks.
