BedwettingAndAccidents.com is a resource for parents, medical professionals, therapists, and teachers — anyone seeking to help children with toileting problems. Our project is run jointly by pediatric urologist Steve Hodges, M.D., and health/parenting author Suzanne Schlosberg.
Our guidance is based on the proven premise that virtually all toileting troubles are caused by chronic constipation.
In other words, enuresis (wetting) and encopresis (poop accidents) are not a mystery or a normal part of childhood, and they are not caused by behavior problems, “deep sleep,” an underdeveloped bladder, or stress. When you unclog a child’s stool-filled rectum and keep it clear — letting it shrink back to size and regain tone and sensation — accidents resolve.
Our unique materials respect children's feelings and intelligence and are grounded in rigorous scientific research.
What we offer:

"My 5-year-old went from pooping and peeing her pants daily and soaking a pull-up every night to not even needing one at night or having a single daytime accident. Cannot thank you enough for M.O.P. Our pediatrician was very impressed."
"Hooray! All poop accidents have been completely gone for a couple of weeks. . . My son's demeanor, appetite, and quality of life are vastly improved. I don't know what we would have done without M.O.P. - probably pumped him full of laxatives to no avail."
"Doctors called my daughter's bedwetting a "brain" thing or a control issue. I knew it was neither, because I could see how devastated she was. Turns out she was hella constipated. M.O.P. CHANGED OUR LIVES. She is now accident-free, and I see her confidence returning. I am so thankful."
"Cannot thank you enough for M.O.P. Our pediatrician was
"We feel like this program has been a miracle. Our daughter is happy and the energy/feeling in the house has changed, as we are not ruled by soiling."
“My son hasn’t had a single accident at school since starting kindergarten. HUGE WIN! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the best advocate for children struggling with enuresis and encopresis in the U.S. and maybe the world!”
