Enuresis (Bedwetting)

No one knows for sure what causes nighttime wetting, also called nocturnal enuresis, but bedwetting is usually a natural part of development, and most children grow out of it. However, enuresis — not being able to control peeing in the daytime or nighttime — can be a sign of another medical condition, especially if it begins abruptly or is accompanied by other symptoms. Then it may be time for your child to be seen by Nemours pediatric urologists who specialize in treating urologic problems in children.
