Childhood Wetting (Paediatric Enuresis)

Enuresis is the repeated incontinence of urine at night time after the age of about 6 years.  This is called nocturnal enuresis or bedwetting. Nocturnal enuresis is a common childhood problem occurring in about 1 in 10 7 year olds.  

Repeated incontinence during the day after about the age of 4 years  is called diurnal enuresis or daytime wetting. Some children will experience either or both. Daytime Wetting is not an uncommon problem in childhood.
