Health Tip: Helping Kids Conquer Bedwetting

(HealthDay News) -- When children are developmentally ready, parents can take steps to help them stay dry through the night.

The U.S. Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse lists these suggestions for parents to help prevent bedwetting in children:

  • Encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids during the day, to avoid drinking too much at bedtime.
  • Don't give your child caffeinated drinks such as soda or tea.
  • Let your child have one drink with dinner, but make that the last drink before bed.
  • Make sure your child goes to the bathroom right before bed.
  • Be supportive and don't scold your child if he or she wets the bed.
  • Offer plenty of praise when your child stays dry all night.
