Bed wetting solutions that really work
by Ontario's Drykids Coach
Bed wetting takes a toll on a child’s self esteem, the quality of their sleep and even their performance in school. Our hospital-tested program fixes the causes, without drugs.
Ending Bed Wetting Without Drugs
DryKids Ontario Coach Peter
Family, friends, even some doctors say “restrict water, wake him up, there’s a drug for that,” and you’ve probably tried these remedies. They just don’t work for kids over age 6. As a bed wetting Coach I see seemingly impossible cases – a 22-year-old student, a 35-year-old nurse – like most people I meet they tried all of the usual remedies without success. I had them dry at night in a few weeks, without drugs.
The bed wetting solutions that really work were developed in hospital clinics many years ago, but aren’t well known because bed wetting is such a secretissue. We use the methods taught to nurses at Boston Children’s and Chicago Memorial hospitals, without the drugs.

“The cause of the enuresis is generally not pathological and can be treated with behavioral therapy.” Success rates can be as high as 90 percent when alarm training is combined with behavioural modification, elimination diet, and most cases resolve within two months….
