Each child is different but here are some general guidelines.
6 things to consider are:
The best time to begin treating bedwetting is when it starts to become an issue for your child. The timing depends on what is right for your family.
Signs that your child may be ready include:
Parents know their own children and their own family dynamics better than anyone else. There is not an absolute “right age” for everyone so you will have to be the judge of that. Remember that you do not have to wait for your child “to grow out of it” because there are such effective steps you can take to end bedwetting within a few weeks or months.
If your child is 8 or older, and shows no signs of having dry nights, chances are high that he or she will need some help from you. At this age, being proactive in buying an alarm and helping your child use it is warranted. Choose an easy-to-use device that does not look “weird “and can be easily hooked up and used independently. A wireless alarm, using familiar cotton underwear to sense moisture, is a good choice. Your child simply pulls on underwear at bedtime and you are all alerted when the wetting occurs. You can help him or her to the bathroom as they learn that new response.
