We do not know your physician and his or her reasons for not mentioning bedwetting alarm treatment. However, we do know that bedwetting is viewed as “trivial” and as a non-medical condition by some physicians. These physicians will simply reassure parents that there is nothing medically “wrong”, and that children will outgrow the condition.
Unfortunately, there is a tendency to overlook just how long it can take to outgrow bedwetting, and some physicians don’t understand the true struggles of a bedwetter and his/her family. Furthermore, many family doctors have little training in bedwetting, and even less in bedwetting alarms. As a result, the awareness of bedwetting alarms and how to use them is often low.
Consider asking for a referral to a pediatrician who has more time set aside for each appointment and is generally more knowledgeable about bedwetting.
