Genetics: If both parents wet the bed until later ages, a child has a 77 percent chance of being a bedwetter. If one parent wet the bed, the probability of a child wetting the bed is 44 percent.   Bladder problems: Some teens have relatively small bladders that can’t hold much urine. Others experience muscle spasms that can lead to nocturnal enuresis.

There are four main reasons a child may continue to wet his bed beyond age 5. Mom and/or Dad were bedwetters. If both parents wet the bed as kids, there’s a 77 percent chance a child will do the same. If only one parent was a bedwetter, the probability a child will follow suit is around 44 percent.

Most doctors consider a bedwetting child to be any girl older than age four and any boy over age five who wet the bed. Bedwetting generally declines with age. About 10% of all six year olds and about 3% of all 14 year olds wet the bed.

In a very small number of cases, bedwetting can continue into adulthood.

Most children are able to stay dry through the night by the time they are 5 years old, but 15% to 20% of 5-year-olds experience nocturnal enuresis, an involuntary emptying of the bladder during sleep beyond the age at which children usually gain bladder control (Caldwell, Nankivell, & Sureshkumar, 2013).

  • Dr. Paul, I have a question. My son was recently diagnosed with mild selective mutism. He has a hard time asking to use the washroom at school in kindergarten. Even using a sign won’t help. He doesn’t want anyone to know, so he’s happier to just go in his pants. Hes now in pull ups, but continues to wet them. This issue persists and persists. At home and everywhere else there’s no issue ever. He does not even wet his bed at night.
    The principal has hinted that he shouldn’t be in school if he’s not potty trained but he is. It’s his anxiety that’s stopping him from wanting use the toilet at school only.
    What are your suggestions to help him understand that using the toilet at school isn’t a scary thing.

  • To eliminate some of the frustration I started laying out a washcloth, extra sheets and pajamas. That way if it happens him and I can get back to bed sooner.
    He’s 6 1/2 and he started wetting the bed after his brother was born 16 months ago.

  • My cousin pissed in my fort last night and I’m pissed. No pun intended.Not to mention I’m in quarantine,which means I’m not sleeping with sheets tonight.
