Children who no longer use diapers can sometimes fail. There is nothing wrong with it, when it occurs rarely, but regular wetting of the child should alarm parents.

Soaking in children

Soaking it involuntary and involuntary urination by a child appearing at night or during the day more than three times a week. Your child's soaking is usually uncontrollable and may be a cause for later disorders psycho-emotional, therefore, the diagnosis and appropriate treatment of the child is very important.

Daily soaking

Daily soaking applies 1.5% childrenwho are 5 years of age or older. The most common reason for passing urine during the day is lack of self-control and urinary retention. The child is busy with fun and waits until the last moment with going to the toilet, which ends in passing urine.

Therefore, it is best to explain to your toddler that he pee before he starts playing and remind you from time to time to use the toilet. However, if, apart from releasing, we notice the child fever, pain and burning when urinating we can deal with bladder infection and medical attention will be needed.

Soaking in the day may have cause of constipation. Stool in the intestines pushes the bladder, causing urine to pass. Other causes of daytime soaking are: drinking too much fluid (e.g. diuretics), fear of having a bowel movement in a public place, not emptying your bladder to the end, e.g. because you are in a hurry, wanting to return to play.

Bedwetting in children

Bedwetting is most common among children, accounts for 85% of all urinations. Doctors list many causes of bedwetting, dividing into primary and secondary.

primary: emotional disturbance, insufficient bladder capacity, too much fluid intake in the evening, deep sleep, abnormal rhythm of urine output during the day, delayed puberty controlling bladder.

Secondary soaking is associated with urinary tract disease. The main causes are: urinary tract infection, detrusor hypersensitivity, urinary tract defects, kidney failure, diabetes, kidney stones, constipation, food allergy, sleep apnea, epilepsy, polyuria caused by excessive fluid intake during the day, or urinary tract disease. Rarely, however, causes are seen in the child's psyche and genetic background.

How can you tell if your child has problems soaking?

Wetting a child should be worrying when the toddler is over 5 years old and several times during the day and night his panties or pajamas are wet. There is no point in panicking when unpleasant surprises happen from time to time even to an older child. Perhaps the child does not yet control his bladder and needs a little more time than his peers, which does not mean, however, that you should ignore the matter. It is recommended to observe the child.

If we see a clear problem, it should be noted for some time how often the child got wet and how much fluid he consumed. On this basis, the doctor will have a clear situation as to what the problem is. If necessary, he will order additional tests: blood pressure, genitalia, abdomen, reflexes, ultrasound, blood and urine tests, determine the cause of soaking and choose the appropriate treatment.

How to treat soaking in children?

Child's urination treatment is a long-term venture. Requires a lot of work from parents and child. After making a diagnosis, your doctor will probably order appropriate treatment. To support a child in treatment, it is necessary to ensure a healthy lifestyle by:

  • avoiding drinking plenty of fluids at once, especially in the evening
  • avoiding drinking carbonated drinks
  • Reminding your child to urinate every two hours and before bedtime

In addition, we should keep a child's wetting calendar and never punish him for soaking. If soaking especially at night is very common, we wake the child up every 3 hours and we ask you to empty your bladder, however, this may lead to the child waking up late at night and disrupting his sleep. There are special sensors placed in panties that react to moisture with a loud sound, waking the child and preventing urination.

At night soaking we can wear diaper pants for the child at night, leave a lit lamp in the room or put a potty close so that the awake child does not have to run to the bathroom.

Child soaking usually passes with age, although it usually requires great patience on both the child's and parents' side. Drug treatment is rarely used, it is mainly recommended for older children.
