Bedwetting

Bedwetting, also known as nocturnal enuresis, is not usually a major concern before the age of 7. Until then, hormones are not completely developed to prevent the occurrence. It is a normal part of childhood development. Most will outgrow their bedwetting, but if it persists there may be underlying health issues. It is best to consult with your provider to see if there is a cause to the bedwetting.
