Bedwetting and Constipation - Happy as a Mother

Bedwetting and Constipation


with Pediatric Urologist Dr. Steve Hodges




Nothing tests us more than being a parent. One of those stages is dealing with potty training, bedwetting, and accidents. As parents, we become overwhelmed from information overload and are anxious as we navigate this time with our child. Today, we’ll look at all things potty training, bedwetting, and accidents from a medical perspective. Join Steve and I as we discuss the time to start potty training, why you need to pay attention to your child’s poop, the impact constipation can have, and when to seek help from a professional.

The country’s leading authority on bedwetting, potty training, and childhood constipation, Steve Hodges, M.D., is an associate professor of pediatric urology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Dr. Hodges has authored numerous journal articles and several books for children and parents, including Bedwetting and Accidents Aren’t Your Fault and The M.O.P. Book: A Guide to the Only Proven Way to STOP Bedwetting and Accidents. A father of three, Dr. Hodges is on a mission to inform families that bedwetting is totally misunderstood and highly treatable.
