Bedwetting is common in young children, but gets less common as children get older.
Most children respond well to treatment, although they may still wet the bed from time to time.
Bedwetting treatments you can try at home
It’s best to try a few measures yourself first, such as:
- not giving your child anything to drink in the hour before bedtime
- making sure they have a wee before going to sleep
Reassure your child. It’s important for them to know they haven’t done anything wrong, and it will get better.
Don’t tell them off or punish them for wetting the bed as this won’t help and could make the problem worse.
