One of our young sons is still wetting during the night. I don’t have an issue with it as I figure he will eventually grow out of it, and he’s fine to wear pull-ups to bed. But sometimes we might forget to put them on him if he happens to fall asleep while watching a movie, or when we arrive home from a long drive later in the evening.
I don’t make a big deal out of it, nor does his dad. And his siblings don’t notice or don’t think anything of it. But sometimes he makes comments on his own accord about the fact that his littler brother doesn’t wear pull-ups to bed and doesn’t wet himself (except the occasional accident when he’s ill). He’s even said, “Laars is better than me because he doesn’t pee in his underwear!”
I confirm that they are different. One is not better than another because of their actions or development. They are just different.
I do wonder if I should take some non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical actions to see if they might help him have more dry nights. Because he’s pretty proud of himself when he gets 3 nights in a row dry!!
Anyways, I was wondering if any of you have got any solutions?
Two ideas I’m thinking of trying I found over at Medical Today
“Nettles, Urtica dioica, can be made into a pleasant tea and consumed throughout the day as a tonic for the kidneys. The tea can be mixed with equal parts of fruit juice as a pleasant drink for the child.
Aromatherapy uses the essential oil of cypress, Cupressus sempervirens to treat chronic bedwetting. Several drops of cypress oil should be put in olive oil for massage. The oil should be rubbed onto the child’s stomach right before bedtime.”
