85% of bedwetting children will
still be wetting this time next year - unless they receive treatment.
Don't get frustrated... Get Help!
Tonight, millions of children and adolescents
will wet their beds in the United States. It happens for various
reasons and many children and their parents are too ashamed, or
embarrassed to talk about it. While many parents hope that someday
their daily laundry chores will end when their child "grows
out of it", your child need not wait. Only 15% of children
with bedwetting stop wetting on their own each year. Current treatments
are available to keep your child from potentially years of wetting,
so that you and your child can rest easily and dry
in their own bed or sleeping bag.
Renee Mercer, the Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
specializing in the treatment of children with bedwetting at Enuresis
Associates, has authored Seven Steps to Nighttime Dryness: A
Practical Guide for Parents of Children with Bedwetting (Paperback).
This book, the most popular published title on the subject of bedwetting, is packed with useful techniques,
practical tips and answers to hundreds of commonly asked questions
to help children stop wetting permanently. Although bedwetting affects
millions of children, many parents and well meaning health care
professionals are unaware of the steps that parents can take to
help their child achieve permanent dryness.
This web site, Dry at Night,
is sponsored by Enuresis Associates, a Maryland based practice
serving patients in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area that
specializes in the treatment of children who wet. This comprehensive
web site is intended to provide parents with objective, science-based
information about bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) and related conditions.
