Bedwetting Affects the Entire Family
Bedwetting is defined as wetting the bed at a frequency of 3 or more nights per week. Bedwetting affects approximately five to seven million children in the United States and 200,000 in Canada with a higher percentage in younger children. Bedwetting is highly prevalent amongst young children with approximately 15% of children experiencing bedwetting by the age of 5-years-old. As the child matures, there is a poorer outcome for resolving bedwetting. Bedwetting is associated with other problems like poor cognition, constipation, and depression. Education and behavioral therapy, as well as enuresis alarms and medications all have limitations in terms of care. Bedwetting spontaneously resolves in 10-20% of affected children, but does persist into adolescence for most.
