The more I see what’s still out there about bedwetting the more disappointed I become. I’ve helped hundreds of families out-do bedwetting in their children. Is it possible that we still really believe that restricting liquids has anything at all to do with bedwetting? Doctors, why are you still advising your parents to “wait until (s)he outgrows it!” Waiting doesn’t cure bedwetting. Restricting liquids doesn’t cure bedwetting. Medication doesn’t even cure bedwetting. What does? Training. It’s that simple. There are a few rules and a few tools to use but it can be done! (Yes, with a bedwetting alarm – but watch the video to learn what type).
It takes a little time to out-do bedwetting. It doesn’t go away overnight. The quickest I’ve seen a kid get dry was 2 weeks. But the norm is more like 90 days (3 months). Some kids take a little longer, too. But that’s okay. If it goes longer than average, we should also look at other potential causes (e.g. food allergy). But the bottom line is, DO SOMETHING about bedwetting. The longer it continues the greater the likelihood of the ‘secret’ getting out.
A short post today because I spent the majority of the day working on the video. I hope you like it.
