Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • 1 out of 65 children, wet the bed regularly at 9 years of age.
  • Occasionally, bedwetting can be triggered by emotional distress, such as being bullied or moving to a new school. Reassuring your child that everything is fine is also important.
  • Do not tell them off or punish them for wetting the bed as this would not help and could make the problem worse.
  • It is important for them to know they are not alone and they will get better.
  • The recommended plan is usually to try a few measures yourself first, such as limiting the amount of liquid in your child drinks in the evening, and making sure that they go to the toilet before going to sleep.
