Bedwetting in Children: What is normal?

Bedwetting, also called nocturnal enuresis, can be a normal part of a child’s development. Before age 7, children are still developing bladder control at night and most will grow out of bedwetting on their own. However, some need help to stop. In other cases, bedwetting could be a sign of an underlying condition.

If you answer yes to three or more of the statements below, it may be time to see a specialist for your child’s bedwetting.
