1. Bladder capacity is still small, and body alarm is incomplete to signal it's full. It'll get better by itself along with age.
2. The body produces excessive urine during sleep. The body actually produces antidiuretic hormone (ADH). The body produces this hormone more in the night, so that urination has become more rare.
But some produce insufficient ADH at those ages, so urine production increases, and the bladder is full. Bedwetting happens if your child doesn't feel the bladder is full.
3. Anxiety, fear, unfamiliar environment and a new sibling are able to trigger bedwetting.
4. Your child is at risk of bedwetting if you have a genetic history.
5. Bedwetting is also a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, the breathing disorders during sleep. The main symptom is snoring, unbreathing sleep and drowsy afternoon. Once these conditions are resolved, your child could no longer wet.
6. Urinary tract problems in children can also cause bedwetting. Blockage or infection in the bladder or urethra can cause fullness and leakage. Spina bifida also causes bedwetting.
You can do these things to help your child not wet the bed:
1. Train your child to determine the capacity of the bladder. Ask whether your child really wants to pee after a drink.
2. Don't let your child drink too much before bedtime.
3. Wake up your child to pee.
4. Raise the temperature of air conditioning.
Well, think about the possibility of urinary tract infection if you've tried all. Hopefully, it doesn't happen.
