Bedwetting & Elimination Problems: iVillage Community

Pregnancy & Parenting's
Bedwetting & Elimination Problems Message Board


Bedwetting is an issue that millions of families face every night. It is extremely common among kids who are under the age of 6, and it can last into the preteen years.

Doctors don't know for sure what causes bedwetting or why it stops. But it is considered a natural part of development, and kids eventually grow out of it. Most of the time bedwetting is not a sign of any deeper medical or emotional issues.

All the same, bedwetting can be very stressful for families. Kids can feel embarrassed and guilty about wetting the bed and anxious about spending the night at a friend's house or at camp. Parents often feel helpless to stop it. There may not be any way for you to cure your child's bedwetting, but the emotional support and reassurance on the Bedwetting and Enuresis board can help your child feel better until the bedwetting goes away on its own.
