incontinence in children with CP
Hi, my 7 yr old daughter has hemiplegia CP. She's always been prone to daytime wetting and sometimes at night, but this has worsened over last few weeks. She now wears special pants with absorbent pads, I've bought her a watch with preset alarms hourly to remind her to go, which doesn't seem to be working, and I've increased her fluid intake. I suspect that she often doesn't know that she's had an accident till she feels wet, I don't think she always feels the proper sensation of weeing, if that makes sense. Sometimes I think its a relatively small leak, other times its a full on wee, either way she's wet through most days when she comes home from school. Her CP is relatively mild, she's independent in other ways, but this is getting us all down. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
