1. Why Your Child?

Bedwetting doesn’t happen to every child, but you should know that your child isn’t wetting the bed on purpose. Bedwetting may happen because:

--Your child’s bladder is too small to hold the amount of urine produced overnight. 

--Your child’s body hasn’t started producing enough of the hormone vasopressin—which reduces urine production at night. 

And sometimes renewed bedwetting is a symptom of emotional distress—this is called secondary enuresis. The arrival of a new sibling, changing schools, or bullying can trigger bedwetting even if your child’s been dry through the night for 6 months or more.   Now, check out the next slides for bedwetting survival tips.

My wife has instituted this open door policy, where if one of our kids has a nightmare, they're welcome to come into our room and pee in our bed. Luckily, that only happens every night.
