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.

Special Clinic Devoted to Children's Voiding Issues

We understand the impact urinary and fecal incontinence can have on your child and your family. That’s why Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville, offers a Continence Clinic for kids with problems holding or releasing urine or stool. Our coordinated care includes specialists from:

  • gastroenterology (digestive health)
  • urology (urinary health)
  • psychiatry and psychology

Our Continence Clinic staff is made up of nurses and nurse practitioners. Our specialized nurses work side-by-side with our doctors and your family to do whatever it takes to help your child with:

  • urinary and fecal incontinence
  • urinary frequency and urgency
  • recurring urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • failure to toilet train
  • chronic constipation

We can also perform tests to help address your child’s individual needs. These may include:

  • urological and gastroenterological assessment
  • uroflow testing to measure the flow and force of the urine stream
  • urodynamics studies to assess bladder and sphincter muscle function
  • high-resolution anorectal manometry (a test that uses a balloon technique to measure contractions) to evaluate the causes of pediatric constipation or fecal incontinence
  • 3-D pediatric anorectal imaging (one of the few clinics to offer this testing)

Nemours Jacksonville is also proud to offer a biofeedback program — one of the first in North Florida — which uses fun, interactive games to help kids better understand and manage this personal issue.
