When should your child outgrow bedwetting? By Dr. Hailey Jackson
  • PublishedJune 14, 2024

Bed-wetting, or nocturnal enuresis, is involuntary urination while asleep after the age where staying dry at night can be reasonably expected.   


Let’s start with how common bedwetting is — nearly 10% of children ages 5-10 experience bedwetting. Most kids are completely potty trained around age 5, but for those that are not by age 7 medical intervention may be necessary.   


While some kids outgrow bedwetting on their own, others might need a little help. From a PT perspective, things like constipation, consumption of bladder irritants, inadequate water intake, not getting into REM sleep, and muscle imbalance can play a role in bedwetting.    


Consult your child’s provider if:   

  • Your kid is wetting the bed beyond age 7  

  • Your kid begins wetting the bed again after being fully potty trained for several months

  • Bed-wetting is accompanied by painful urination, unusual thirst, pink or red urine, hard stools, or snoring. 


Nocturnal enuresis is one of the most common diagnoses treated by pediatric pelvic floor PTs.
