Mother's Forum....

Time for the Mothers ooooo






Hello Stella. Nice Job you are doing! 
                                                      

Please i need advice on This, I am blessed with 2 Lovely kids. Age 7 and 5. 

The issue i am having on them is bedwetting! I have tried all means to stop it but hey! no way! I have even made findings from my Mum and MIL, but they confirmed that we stopped earlier than my kids age. 

As a mother, i feel so sad seeing my kids waking up with wet Pyjamas. I also stopped giving them liquid anything from 6:30 pm everyday, i woke them up about 3 times at night to ease themselves. But its not as if its an everyday 
thing oo, they bed-wet at least 2-3 times a week. 


Hubby too is not helping matters, Whenever i am on night shift at work, he always wear them Diapers and i feel so sad about it. please i need advice on how to handle this cos i don't want them to grow with it. 

thanks very much.

    7. There is nothing serious just how deep they sleep. My sis bedwetted till almost 14 in boarding school. But here in US, there is a drug they can give to children that bedwet it doesn't cure it but it treats the symptoms its called desmopressin acetate.you can discuss it with your kids doctor

    6. I stopped bedwetting in SS1 at the age of 14. Just like them, i used to pee once or twice a week before i finally stopped. There was nothing my mum didn't do. I was able to stop when whenever I was playing in my dream and I want to pee, I force myself to get u. So I stopped peeing in my dream n stopped in real life. They'll stop when d time is right. Just make them clean the room when they get up and don't allow them play too much during the day.

  3. Madam reduce their sugar intake, sugar makes kids super playfull n once they have excess in der system in the evenings n can't burn it off from playing around cos it's night, it somehow leads to dem having excess fluids in der system. And u know most kids can't wake up by dem selves to pee, therefore bedwetting happens.
    So no sweets n candies after 6 pm and watch how their system wud regulate itself n dey wud stop peeing when dey sleep. I tried dis with my nephews n it worked.

  4. oh dear coming from my family , am a lady and i had 2 younger brothers, my dear we bedwet up until teenage years o, as in i personally stopped bedwetting around age 14 likewise my brothers, there is nothing my mum did not do , even giving us concortion to eat, wee on fire etc, my dear i think its pyscological, i know its sad but eventually when they start feeling ashamed themselves , there brain will reset itself and please dont beat or embarass them o, its not there fault, children grow at there own pace and time and dont compare them with other kids. i think it also has to do with bladder incontinence, where you cant control your bladder when asleep, so it will go with time.

    1. Please madam do not stress yourself much, they will stop when time comes, My boy is 8+ still bedwet though not always shaa.
      Though you may try reducing their liquid intake especially towards evening.

  5. Even though I have just one child for now and he's just 5weeks plus, I know that bedwetting, they'll stop when they will. You can just play your part by what you are doing now. If they are very playful especially during the day, nothing will make them stop because they are usually very tired when they are about to sleep so they'll bedwet. The good news is that they'll stop when they would. Don't every dear, it's not something you should be bothered about.

  6. My MIL and even my husband told me when my husband stopped bedwetting.... Sometimes it's just too much play during the day and you can't stop them from playing

  7. Some kids are like that...my last child that is 5 still bed wets...
    Though it's not an everyday thing mostly when I over slept and forgot to switch off their AC in the middle of the night...

    1. Ok I stopped bedwetting at 2 what my mum said and my son stopped bedwetting at 2. Now he is 4, even if he plays like no tomorrow, when he wants to wee/poo at night, he must wake me up. From 1year 6months, I stopped diaper during the day and would always put him on potty evey 2hours and before sleeping. I noticed some mornings the diaper will be completely dry. But that's how he stopped bedwetting at 2. This may not help your situation but a new mon. All the best with your kids

  11. If it were an everyday thing, I would have told you to wake them up every two hours to go pee.by the time they pass through that gruelling routine for a month, bed-wetting would be a thing of the past. I used that method on my Lil cousin when she was 3.

    Since it's not an everyday occurrence, find out how they spend their day at school on the days they bed wet. Stress could be a factor..
    Reduce soda and candy intake to twice or once a week even.

    They will stop with time. Just give it time, and dedication.

  12. Hmmm, I thought I was alone. Some times I thinks it's too much play. By the time to go to bed exhausted they sleep too deep and forget themselves. The annoying part is if you also sleep and forget you have kids(i mean when you are also exhausted)

  13. give them dinner by 5:30 at least,and let dem pee immediately be4 bed.this is super embarrasing.a 7yr old?i had a seniour in ss3 back then who still used to bedwet.God forbid bad tin for ur kids.mine stopped at 1yr and 6months each.tank God for small mercies

    1. Shut up madam. What is super embarrassing about it? It's a 7 year old not a 17 year old.
      You are lucky your kid's stopped bed wetting at a very early age. That doesn't mean you should make the poster feel bad or inadequate.
      She is asking for advice not your thinly veiled judgement.
      Care to share anything you did different that made your kid's stop bed wetting so early?

    2. Nothing is super embarrassing in a 7yrs old bed wetting.

      I stopped in boarding school and had seniors in my hostel that was still bed wetting

  14. I was always bedwetting till like 8 or 9 years. I think u should wake theme more often cause I tell u when I was little and I always imagined i was using the toilet. My aunts where always punishing me and telling me to was the bedsheets everytime. U just look for ways to help

    ReplyDelete
  15. Since your hubby still wears them diapers, then they will keep bed wetting because they are confused at what to do. Wake them to pee 2-3 times, and as time goes on they will start to do it themselves. But this is not to say there won't be wet days, but very limited say 2wice a month.

  16. Madam be beating and disgracing them anytime they bed wet.
    Threaten them dat they will carry their mattress on dere heads and walk round the neighbourhood.
    The fear of such disgrace will make them stop.
    It is usually a psychological thing, but if u promise dem 10strokes of cane after every episode and actually cain them, d thing will jilt dem up and make dem conscious during sleep.
    My 2cents.
    I cant stand d smell of urine in my home. Thank God my son doesn't bedwet. I got him so used to going to d toilet, dat he cant go to bed without reminding me he hasn't wee wee yet.

    4. Very stupid advice......how has disgracing somebody proffered solution to a problem? Disgracing a 5 and 7 year old cause of bed wetting.....so not fucking funny...that's child abuse if u don't get it...

  17. They will outgrow it when they get to 10 years but if you are worried, try and wake them up early by 12.00 a.m. and tell them to piss even if they have sleep eyes. Not easy but once you start perfecting their waking up 12.00 a.m. it will be great.

    I hope the room they are staying are not smelling badly.

  18. Starting to train their bodies early is the key. My mum said she stopped using napkins(no diapers in our time) as early as b4 we clocked 2.her secret was constantly waking us at night and inducing us to pee n wit time our bodies adjusted to those times she wakes us n we will make signs on our own n dt was it.

    Tried same formula for my kids too and it works. Early start, Sacrifice ur sleep and train them early enough and learn their body language they will be passed it b4 they clock 3.my cousin also attested to this formula with her last kid.

  19. I for one bed wet dat my mum always make me wash my bedspread before going to a school. At a point it becomes shameful wen I see my mate passing weekend n am washing clothes I bed wet on. It's was during my primary school so at a point it just stopped. Our last born who is 3 bedwet but we always try to make him pee like 2times before day break and once it's late we don't allow him to drink much liquid again so it drastically reduce how he bedwet so u can try it. D problem I for one have now is for d fact Dat anytime I drim abt peeing na so I go wake up see say I don wet it's shameful but it normally happen once in a blue moon don't know if anybody is experiencing such

  22. You cant do it alone without your husband , every step you take forward he brings it backwards by wearing diapers for them. You need to set a time table, inconveniences but will work. make sure they are asleep by 8pm, wake them up at 10pm,12am and 4pm in the first to third months. the next 6 months reduce it to 11pm or 12 am and 3pm and the last 3 months 1am.
    It is a sacrifice you must make, forget the idea that they will stop on their own, you have to train them to understand when they are pressed they should wake up.Especially the one that is 7 years. your visitors will tag you dirty if your whole house is urine aroma.

  23. Madam, I know the feeling. I watch my mum's eyes as I did mine till GOD knows when it stopped self cos I can't figure out myself and I can still remember till Secondary school.
    It will stop at some point but you need to encourage them to see how wrong it is so they can have a will but don't do this by killing their emotions. MAY GOD ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS #Motherhood

  26. Tell their teacher to announce it in class anytime they bed wet and when they are going to bed tell dem if they bedwet u will tell their aunty in school. With that it will help them stop it. It works for my aunty child who was six years and stil bedweting

  27. don't worry yourself too much, with time as the grow up, they will stop bed wetting. You just need to give them food on time, make sure they do not drink too much water before going to bed, with time it will be a story in the past.

    ReplyDelete
  28. you just need to monitor them closely and get your husband to wake them at night to pee. how long will they keep wearing diapers for? that is just a short-cut. Talk to your kids as well. Please don't beat them, with time they will adjust.

  29. I stopped using diaper for my first child at a year 2 months immediately i stopped breastfeeding. She started bedwetting at age six till dates and she is eight now, but I observed that whenever they are on holiday wee wee will stopped. I have complained to the Head of teachers in their school to help minimize her playing but are younger ones age 5 and 2 wake me up to wee at night.

  30. Poster I feel for you, I have 2 kids 4 and 2 and they don't bed wet. Even though we sleep in separate rooms I make sure I wake them up at half one to wee. I actually had an alarm for that, right now they wake on their own and use the toilet. Cause I can hear their noises when they go. Make sure you cut out sugar, frizzy drinks and sweets completely. The only time mine have sweets is at weekend and they know it's a treat so they won't even expect to have sweets when they want, also cut down on their playing because when they are too tired the body will be lazy to wake up and go use the toilet. I feel for you cause I remember spending a weekend with my friend whose kids are 8,6, and 5 and they still use night time pampers, my little kids were laughing at the kids and I could see she was very embarrassed. I hope your kids stop soon, hugs and kisses my dear๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹

  31. Hmm, 5 and 7 and u are worried? Ask my mum the full meaning of bed wetting. I and my younger brother did it till I was almost 17 and then he continued till he was in ss2. I don't know how I stopped but I remembered I woke one day and was dry. So madam, just calm down. They will eventually stop.

  33. Reduce the type of food you give them during the day,and wake them up at night often,even at their age you can still tell them is bad for them to be bed wetting,the room should have bad odour,you tell them their bed wetting caused it,my children don't bed wet especially my last child,she stopped very early,my 6years old son does once in 4 months and the disgrace he gets lasts him till when ever he chooses to bed wet again cos he hides his clothes,I don't know whyou are bothering yourself, my neighbors children aged12,15,still bed wets and she's not bothered.

  35. Hahaha. . . . . . My 4 yr old still does this occasionally. If you ask her why she peeped on the bed she will turn around and accuse you of doing it. One day I showed her the urine marks on her pyjamas, she quickly told that it's the pyjamas that must have peed then. I just looked at her in shock, lost all strength to argue.

  36. Sometimes kids wet the bed because of medical issues. My 12 year old son was bedridden because of an ankle injury, and our doctor prescribed a mild pain killer, and told him to drink lots of water. Well, he drank a lot of water, to the point that he had no control. Early one morning I went into my son's room to check on him, and my he was laying naked on top of his bed sheet sound asleep. It was warm at the time, so this was no big deal. Besides, as his Mom, I had seen him naked many times. I sat on the bed next to him, and noticed that all his water bottles were empty. I figured that he probably had to go, so I gently shook his shoulders trying to wake him up. He started to wake up by stretching his arms, and legs. I was then sort of rubbing his tummy, and asking him if he had to go potty. All of a sudden, he started peeing all over his bed sheet. Luckily, I had put a plastic mattress cover under his sheet. He looked so surprised, but just kept peeing, as if he had no control. He really soaked his bed sheet. When he finished his morning pee, he seemed so embarrassed, and ashamed that his Mom saw him pee his bed. I just hugged him, and told him not to worry about it. The pee mess was easily cleaned up, and I had him wear a diaper at night until his ankle was better. He did have a few more wet mornings, but only small amounts of pee got on his bed sheet, thanks to the diaper. This was the only time that he peed in his bed

  37. I wet the bed until age 11. Mom had me wear cloth diapers and plastic pants. Around age 8 or 9 she taught me how to pin them myself and so I was able to get myself ready for bed.
    Currently have bedwetters ages 7 and 5 both in cloth diapers and plastic pants as it's easier on the pocketbook and they don't leak.
