Bed wetting, also known as nocturnal enuresis, is uncontrollable leakage of urine while asleep. It is considered abnormal in children over the age of 5 years of age. This is a very common childhood condition affecting 5-10% of 7 year olds, which if not treated may continue into adolescence and adulthood.
Bed wetting is a medical condition that can have a negative impact on the child’s self esteem, emotional wellbeing, including school and social performance. It is a condition that can be treated.
Children with enuresis will receive a management plan to address their bedwetting, following a comprehensive continence assessment by AABBS.
