Bladder capacity child

You can measure your child’s bladder capacity by how often they need to pee, but how do you pee properly?

It is very important that your child goes to the bathroom on time, also for their bladder capacity. As soon as your child feels the need to pee, they must go. Holding their pee for a long time is not good. If your child waits too long to go to the toilet he or she will not have time afterwards to think about the right way to pee. Another option is to have your child pee at set times. You can also train the bladder capacity by drinking a lot during the day

Below we provide tips on how to properly finish urinating:

Going to the toilet properly for girls

  1. Go to the toilet on time or at the agreed times.
  2. Put your underpants down to your ankles so that your legs can part slightly.
  3. Take your time to sit on the toilet.
  4. Sit upright, so not too far forward or backward.
  5. Sit in a relaxed position, preferably with your feet supported. If you can’t reach the ground, use a footstool. Do not wiggle your legs or pinch them against the toilet bowl. Optionally, you can use a toilet seat reducer. You sit on the toilet like you would on a relaxed chair

Finishing peeing the right way for boys

  1. Go to the toilet on time or at the agreed times.
  2. Take the time to sit on the toilet or stand relaxed, not like a bodybuilder. Do not tighten your buttocks or clamp your knees. This is the easiest way for boys to release the sphincter.
  3. Take a moment and stay still
  4. Don’t squeeze the peehole.

How often your child needs to pee often depends on how much your child drinks and the size of the bladder.

You can work out if your child is peeing enough. First, work out what bladder capacity your child should have. In other words; how much is supposed to be able to fit in the bladder. Then measure (preferably 1 whole day) each pee with a measuring cup to see if the amount is correct. Below, an example explains how to calculate bladder capacity.

You calculate the blowing capacity with the following formula: (age + 2) x 30 = … So if your child is 7 years old, the formula becomes as follows (7+2)*30=210mm

It is important that your child’s sphincter opens slowly and relaxed.

Just picture a balloon. When an inflated balloon is released, the balloon deflates on its own. With the sphincter of the bladder it is exactly the same. To get the sphincter of the bladder open, your child needs to take some time. If your baby relaxes properly, and “goes completely relaxed,” the sphincter will open on its own. Then the pee can come out. The idea is that the pee comes out completely in 1 go. So not a little bit, then stopping, and another little bit and another stop. The child can feel whether the muscles are properly relaxed, it can also help to take a deep breath before urinating.

Tense muscles are hard and relaxed muscles are weak. Sometimes it is helpful to listen to how the pee comes out. You can hear if the pee comes out all at once. Furthermore, it is important that your child exercises sufficiently to improve bladder capacity.

Dryly is great. Our son took a long time to stay dry at night. We have now used dryly for the night for two months. And last week we went on holiday for a week without dryly and yes it is dry for the whole nights. The app is very easy and fun to operate yourself for the kids. As parents you can also be worse and clear when things went wrong.
Very satisfied!

After 4 weeks my son (8 years) was completely dry! So special that it works so quickly and also in a fun and playful way without any stress! The first 2 weeks my son often had an accident, then suddenly a cover. Suddenly 4 days dry, 5 days dry and then basically just dry. We are also very satisfied with Dryly's service and thinking along with us.
