Bed Wetting

Bed-wetting is also known as nighttime incontinence or nocturnal enuresis. Generally, bed-wetting before age 7 isn't a concern. At this age, your child may still be developing nighttime bladder control.

If bed-wetting continues, treat the problem with patience and understanding. Bladder training, moisture alarms or medication may help reduce bed-wetting.

Bed Wetting Causes

  • Deep sleepers - Some of these children sleep so deeply, their brain doesn't get the signal that their bladder is full.
  • A small bladder. Your child's bladder may not be developed enough to hold urine produced during the night.
  • Inability to recognize a full bladder. If the nerves that control the bladder are slow to mature, a full bladder may not wake your child - especially if your child is a deep sleeper.
  • Hormone imbalance. During childhood, some kids don't produce enough anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) to slow nighttime urine production.
  • Stress Stressful events - such as becoming a big brother or sister, starting a new school, or sleeping away from home - may trigger bed-wetting.
  • Urinary tract infection - This infection can make it difficult for your child to control urination. Signs and symptoms may include bed-wetting, daytime accidents, frequent urination, red or pink urine, and pain during urination.
  • Chronic constipation - The same muscles are used to control urine and stool elimination. When constipation is long term, these muscles can become dysfunctional and contribute to bed-wetting at night.
  • A structural problem in the urinary tract or nervous system. Rarely, bed-wetting is related to a defect in the child's neurological system or urinary system.

Risk Factor

  • Being male: Bed-wetting can affect anyone, but it's twice as common in boys as girls.
  • Family history: If one or both of a child's parents wet the bed as children, their child has a significant chance of wetting the bed, too.
  • Attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) : Bed-wetting is more common in children who have ADHD.

Bed Wetting Symptoms

Bed-wetting is involuntary urination while asleep after the age at which staying dry at night can be reasonably expected.

Most kids are fully toilet trained by age 5, but there's really no target date for developing complete bladder control. Between the ages of 5 and 7, bed-wetting remains a problem for some children.


  • Guilt and embarrassment, which can lead to low self-esteem
  • Loss of opportunities for social activities, such as sleepovers and camp
  • Rashes on the child's bottom and genital area — especially if your child sleeps in wet underwear.

Test and Diagnosis

Your child will need a physical examination and investigation.

  • Urine tests to check for signs of an infection or diabetes
  • X-rays or other imaging tests of the kidneys or bladder, if the doctor suspects a structural problem with your child's urinary tract or another health concern
  • Other types of tests or assessments, if other health issues are suspected.
