Effective Home Remedies To Stop Bedwetting in Children

Updated on June 14, 2014

Countless mothers world over spend sleepless nights changing the nappies of their young ones. Bedwetting is common, small children are prone to do so at night sometimes several times.

However, if the child even after growing old doesn’t stop bedwetting then it could be a cause of concern. Helping your child to stop bedwetting is a must as it disrupts not just your sleep but of your child also.

Children by the age of 4 develop control over their bladder muscles and are less likely to wet the bed, but in some children this may continue for even longer years.

So, there are some of the easy and effective home remedies for stopping bedwetting in children. In this post, I am discussing some of these home remedies which surely you must try.

Natural Home Remedies for Bedwetting in Infants

Cranberry Juice: Give your child a little bit of cranberry juice before he goes to sleep. The juice is said to be effective in helping your child get control over his muscles and thus he is less likely to wet the bed.

Jaggery should be given to your child to stop bedwetting. This is so because jiggery has a heating effect on the body from within. Give your child a little amount of jaggery with lukewarm milk every morning. After around one hour or so, make your child eat a little bit of roasted sesame seeds and celery seeds which should be taken in equal amounts. Do this for around two months to see results.

Mustard powder too has been found useful to stop bedwetting in children. Take a pinch of dry mustard seed powder and add it to warm milk. This should be given to the child one hour before he goes to bed at night. Mustard seeds are said to be good even for those suffering from urinary diseases. Do this for a few weeks, and your child will certainly stop bedwetting at night.

Honey is a powerful home remedy for treating not just bedwetting but various other issues too. Make sure you are giving your child one teaspoon of honey every night before he goes to sleep. Or else give him honey with milk in the morning time.

Apple cider vinegar can also be used for preventing bedwetting in small children. You need to drop just a pinch of it to one glass of water and make your child drink the same.

Things to Remember

Give your child plenty of fluids during the day time but give him lesser amounts during the night.

Make sure that the child empties his bladder when he goes to sleep. This way he may not wet the bed.

Try to use an alarm clock to wake him up at nighttime and go to urinate. Practicing this will make him more punctual and he will develop the habit over a period of time.

Try to avoid giving your child sweets, meat and other kind of artificial additives or juicy fruits two to four hours before going to bed.

It is hopeful that these home remedies if followed upon will surely help your child to get rid of the problem of bedwetting. Lastly, make sure to reward your child each day he doesn’t wet the bed and make sure to encourage him and teach him how bedwetting is not a good thing to do.
