My Daughter is 5 Year old. But She still bed wetting at night regularly. (4-5 times a week) We find difficult to manage it. Please Advise.

MBBS, FELLOWSHIP IN PAEDIATRICS

As adults, when the bladder gets full, it sends a signal to the brain to wake up or you start dreaming about water or going to bathroom, and then you wake up, but for kids the signal isn't quite strong enough to get them awake which is why it is normal for children to wet the bed till age 6 or below. Therefore bed-wetting is a developmental issue and therefore the treatment is time, so for kids age 6 or under, they will most likely grow out of it. It becomes an issue when the child starts feeling bad about himself, when he starts to pull away from his friend because he is afraid that his friends will make fun of him. It makes matters worse when parents yell and scream at their children for bed wetting. Kids need reassurance and encouragement from parents. Children who continue to wet the bed beyond the age of 6 may not be producing enough ADH hormone at appropriate times or may not yet be attuned to their bodies' signals, or both. Behavioral changes too play a role in achieving dryness, he says. Try decreasing the amount that kids drink before bed. Parents should seek formal treatment between ages 6 and 7. There are bed wetting alarms available which are very effective on their own. But they take around 12 weeks to show the difference. If the problem is severe a pediatrician should be consulted for medication advice such as desmopressin which acts on kidneys to reduce the flow of urine. Another medication is imipramine which allows you to have better control of the bladder, affects the bladder musculature and may change sleep patterns, so kids wake up if they have to urinate. While this is cheaper than desmopressin it has more side effects on long term used. The bottom line is you should resort to medicines as last option first try reward therapy and beahvioral changes. More than 80% children at this age will grow out of it.

Please take her to the doctor for a medical check up just to rule out any health problem. Some tests can be routinely done. It is also important to know if there is any fear or any anxiety due to some some one in the school. Do ask her after assuring her that you will accept everything that she says. Please also discuss with the teacher and principal if there is anything missing or any matter that needs attention. Have patience and be compassionate with your child. With love and caring she would come out of this tricky situation. Please revert after you visit the school and the doctor. You can contact me and take the help of Homeopathy if there is any problem as it is mild and safe.

Dear Lybrate User, Stool pattern for babies have a wide spectrum. If a baby doesn't pass stool for 3 days or he passed 10-12 times per day is normal. If the baby is passing stool every time he is having feed is normal. It will gradually settle down. So need not to worry. Yes the baby can have cold from the mother. The best way to prevent is to wear a face mask while feeding and caring the baby. Thanks.

If he hears normal and follow your verbal direction after proper understanding, there may be that his desire is being fulfilled on his pointing finger without his speaking. (usake ishaaron par kam hona). If it is condition, give him opportunity to speak otherwise consult pediatrician.
