Home Remedies for Bed-Wetting

Home Remedies for Bed-Wetting

1. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of the simplest home remedies for your child to stop bed-wetting. It is believed that this spice keeps the body warm. 

  • Have your child chew a piece of cinnamon stick thoroughly once a day.
  • You can also combine sugar and cinnamon powder and then sprinkle it on buttered toast. Give this toast to your child for breakfast

2. Indian Gooseberry 

Indian gooseberry, also known as amla, is an excellent Ayurvedic remedy for bedwetting.

  • Crush and de-seed two Indian gooseberries. Add one tablespoon of honey and a pinch of turmeric. Give one tablespoon of this mixture to your child every morning.
  • Another option is to give your child one teaspoon of the pulp of Indian gooseberry mixed with a pinch of black pepper powder.

3. Massage

For an easy treatment to cure bedwetting, you can use olive oil. Simply heat some olive oil and when it is comfortably warm, rub it over your child’s lower abdomen and then massage the area gently for several minutes. Follow this remedy daily until you are satisfied with the results.

4. Cranberry Juice

Cranberry juice is good for the bladder and urinary tract. It is highly recommended for children with bed-wetting problems. Although most liquids should be avoided soon before bed, you can give your child a cup of fresh cranberry juice one hour before going to bed. Repeat this process daily for at least a few weeks. If bed-wetting is due to urinary infection, give your child one-half cup of cranberry juice three times a day.

5. Walnuts & Raisins

Walnuts and raisins can also be used to reduce the frequency of bed-wetting. Many children will enjoy this as a tasty snack.

  • Give your child two walnuts and five raisins before going to bed.
  • Repeat this remedy for at least a few weeks or until you see positive result.

6. Bladder Exercises

Bladder exercises help stretch the muscle that controls the release of urine from the bladder and increase bladder capacity. Muscle-strengthening and bladder-stretching exercises are considered good for bladder control.
Have your child do a muscle-strengthening exercise involving tightening of the pelvic muscles, holding the position for 5 to 10 seconds, and then resting for five seconds. This exercise has to be repeated 10 times, thrice daily. Encourage your child to hold off going to the bathroom for some time when the urge to urinate begins. This method may be more beneficial for accidental daytime wetting than night time but can help reduce the frequency of bed-wetting episodes. It usually trains the bladder to hold an increased amount of urine without triggering the urge to urinate, thus helping children to hold their urine for two to three minutes more, each day.
