Daytime wetting

Some children struggle to stay dry in the daytime.  It is important that the child is checked by a doctor to rule out any medical cause for the wetting.

Daytime wetting can happen at any age.  It can have a great effect on the child’s self-esteem and emotional wellbeing.  Often these families experience heightened stress as every journey they make no matter how small may result with the child needing changed.  Parents report that as a child gets older there is also the fear that other children will find out leaving the child vulnerable to bullying.

If your child has no medical reason for the daytime wetting they can still get help.  Through a holistic assessment by a specialist nurse contributing factors may be highlighted.  Advice and treatment can be given to help the child train their bladder and achieve dryness.
