Incontinence is a medical condition that is usually not associated with children. It is typically understood that children are potty trained as they mature, and many accidents happen in the following younger years. Disposable diapers are normally used in this process to contain leakage. While accidents are much more common in children, there are still incidents where they can suffer from incontinence. The use of disposable diapers can continue to prevent messes, and help protect the self-esteem of young children.

While incontinence is experienced in many young children, typically it goes away with time. Medical news reports that the most common form of incontinence in children is bedwetting. Experts are not certain to the exact causes of bedwetting. It is generally assumed to be a combination of overproduction of urine, slower development, or possibly anxiety. This condition typically subsides as the child matures. Some experts believe that the production of a hormone called antidiuretic hormone (AHD) may be inadequate for bedwetting children. AHD slows urine production and is usually produced in greater quantities at night. Inadequate amounts of AHD production may lead to the bladder being overfilled at night, and lead to bedwetting. Disposable diapers are an option to help children with bedwetting characteristics.

There are some reports from medical news and experts that attribute anxiety to incontinence in children. It is suggested that children who experience immense anxiety between the ages of 2 to 4 may be more likely to have incontinence issues. As a child ages, anxiety issues can create spontaneous and sporadic occurrences of incontinence. Many factors can lead to the anxiety and can include life-changing events and abusive parents.

Incontinence in children is rarely a sign of long lasting problems. Most occurrences are attributed to an overactive bladder or a child being distracted and not making it to the bathroom on time. There are physical problems found in the urinary tract of a remote few children, but this is rare. In the event that a parent is concerned about incontinence in their child, there are many urologists who have the knowledge to diagnose and treat such problems in children.

Most treatments for childhood incontinence involve some form of bladder training. This treatment teaches children to recognize and anticipate urinating times. The use of moisture alarms can aid in nighttime bedwetting. These alarms activate when liquid comes in contact with them. There are also medications that can help control incontinence as well. Most children are able to outgrow any incontinence problems and the use of disposable diapers can assist in containing messes.
