Answer:
hi Uma , First of all please understand that it is no way your daughter's fault. She is neither lazy nor is she aware that she is passing urine while sleeping. So don't scold her or even nag her. These are few things that you may do to ensure that she is not wetting the bed. 1. Stop the liquid diet that includes water, milk, soup 1/2 to 1 hour prior to the bed. 2. Encourage her to go to washroom every 2-3 hours during the day and 1-2 hours in the evening. 3. Before hitting the bed ask her to go and pee even if she insists that she doesn't want to go now you stay firm and ensure that she goes to the washroom. 4. In addition put a waterproof mattress under her bed sheet. Also you said that she is wetting the bed sometime please note the days she wets the bed and then think back on the previous evening or day -- what was different on that day or evening? And then come back and tell me till then I hope whatever I have suggested here helps you.
