BEDWETTING IS MOST COMMON IN CHILDREN UP TO 7 YEARS, BUT IT CAN HAPPEN AT ANY AGE
Many parents are worried by their child’s bedwetting, not realising that is completely normal in children up to the age of seven years, with many kids older than that continuing to wet the bed for a variety of reasons.
The good news is that nearly all kids outgrow bedwetting. In the meantime, it’s up to you to manage it with patience, love and good, old-fashioned common sense.
What age should my child stop wetting the bed?
Children develop nighttime bladder control at different ages.
Once your child has mastered daytime control, you may feel ready to begin to work towards achieving nighttime dryness.
The time between achieving daytime continence and nighttime dryness can vary from child to child, with many children continuing to wet the bed up to the age of 5 or 6.
If you’re one of the lucky few whose child has started waking-up in the morning with a dry nappy, then it may well be time to make the leap and embrace a nappy-free night.
For the rest of us, we’ll just have to hold off until our child begins to have the odd dry nappy.
