Has your child started wetting the bed again

"It’s important that as parents and caregivers we encourage our children, without focusing on the occurrence (bed wetting), but rather focus on the cause: the emotions behind the occurrence. It's important to try to identify what might be making your child feel nervous, anxious, worried, insecure and deal with these by providing structure, stability and constant support in the child’s life."

According to the National Kidney Foundation, secondary nocturnal enuresis accounts for about one quarter of children with bedwetting. By age ten years, up to 8% of children will develop SNE.

"A common cause of SNE in the pre-school child is an overactive bladder (OAB). Children with OAB pee more than usual, often have to run to the bathroom, and wet by day. Bladder infection is another cause of SNE; about 15-20% of children with cystitis present with nighttime wetting. Constipation also can be a cause or an aggravating factor. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an uncommon cause of SNE. Large adenoids are the most common cause of OSA that leads to SNE."
