We understand the concerns that you feel
Bedwetting is a normal condition in children less than 3 years. When entering the age of 2 years, toilet training must be applied to children so that children are able to regulate and do urination and defecation independently. Quoted from the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI), bedwetting falls into the abnormal category if the child is still having difficulty regulating urination until the age of 5 years
Bedwetting is divided into primary and secondary bedwetting. Primary bedwetting if the child is still wetting continuously from infancy to the present. Whereas secondary bedwetting occurs if the child does not wet the bed again for at least 6 months, but suddenly the child wets himself again, whether he realizes it or not.
The cause of bed wetting is difficult to know, but several conditions such as urinary tract infections, disorders of the kidneys, constipation / difficulty defecating, neurological disorders, disorders of child sleep and psychological disorders experienced by children.
To find out more, we recommend that you check your child's condition to a pediatrician if symptoms occur more frequently.
In order for the child's bedwetting complaints to improve, try to understand and begin to re-teach toilet training. Help the child to empty the bladder every 1-2 hours and before going to sleep. Adequate body fluids with healthy food and drinks, avoid consumption of caffeine. Help the child to exercise pelvic floor muscle strength to be able to hold urine before being expelled.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
