Bedwetting/weak bladder young child
I have a daughter who has just turned 5. Even though we try to limit her fluid intake after 6pm and take her to the the toilet last thing at night before we go to bed, she stillcannot make through to the morning without wetting the bed. She is a heavy sleeper and does not wake up when she needs to go to the toilet. During the day she goes to the toilet a lot but obviously since she is awake there are no problems. She has been wearing pull up nappies at night but is starting to not want to wear them . I want to sort out the problem before it becomes and issue but short of settingthe alarm for 3am in the morning and putiing her on the toilet myself , I do not know what to do.

Concerned mom, I wrote something on bedwetting a while ago and if you mail me at netdoc@mweb.co.za, I’ll pass it on. If you have more questions, please let me know (as a new question, otherwise I will miss it).
