June 2, 2006, Newsletter Issue #93: Bed Wetting

Tip of the Week

While most children are potty trained by the time they are three to four years old, wetting the bed at night (nocturnal enuresis) is still a common problem for many six to eight year old children (affecting about 8% of eight year olds). It is more common in boys and in families in which one or both parents wet the bed as a child.

Bedwetting may be caused by your child having a small bladder capacity (meaning it can not hold as much urine as children who do not wet the bed), not being able to tell when his bladder is full, or during times of stress. Very rarely is bed wetting caused by a disease or physical problem.
