☀️ Bedwetting (clinical term: Enuresis)

An involuntary urination after ages four to five and may be either nocturnal, diurnal, or both. People who are enuretic persist in wetting at night or during the day past an early age. There is a distinction in the literature between Primary Enuresis (a child who has never stopped bedwetting or was dry for only a short period of time) and Secondary Enuresis, a child that was dry for at least six months and relapsed.

☀️ Bedwetting alarm treatment

The alarm is used to condition the subconscious reflex system; therefore, waking to the alarm is not a requirement for success. Treatment success does not require the child to wake up on his or her own to the alarm.

A child subconsciously connects involuntary micturition to the unpleasant alarm response and waking up and walking to the toilet. When the child does not wake to the alarm, the parents are instructed to do some essential activities that are vital for the learning process (reflex conditioning).
