Bedwetting Q&A:

My son has never been dry at night and does not have problems during the day.

Question:

My son will be 10 next month. He has never regularly been dry at night. He does not have problems during the day. He does not drink soft drinks on a regular basis. We limit drinks later in the day. He is embarrassed about still wetting the bed. Should I ask his pediatrician to check for physical problems?

The GoodNites® Team Answer:

Greetings! Thank you for your inquiry. Bedwetting, also known as nighttime wetting or nocturnal enuresis, is a very common condition that affects children all over the world. Nighttime wetting usually resolves itself as the child grows older. If these problems persist, we recommend consulting with a medical professional in case there are underlying causes that we can’t address. The GoodNites® team strives to provide superior support and resources for individuals who are dealing with nighttime wetting issues. We appreciate your reaching out and wish you the best! Sincerely, The GoodNites® Team
