What is the connection between bedwetting and the child’s bladder?

Bedwetting, also known as nocturnal enuresis, is a condition where a child involuntarily releases urine during sleep. The connection between bedwetting and the child’s bladder lies in the bladder’s ability to store and release urine.

In children with bedwetting, the bladder may not be able to hold enough urine overnight, or the child may not awaken when the bladder is full and the need to void arises. Additionally, some children with bedwetting may have a delay in the development of their bladder control muscles, which can contribute to the problem.

It’s important to note that bedwetting is a common issue, affecting about 15% of 5-year-olds and 5% of 10-year-olds, and that it can have various causes, not just bladder-related ones. If a child is experiencing bedwetting, it is recommended to explore appropriate treatment options.
