Bed-wetting is also known as Enuresis. It falls under a habit disorder that is not physically harming anyone but it is more an embarrassing situation for parents. They are the parents who normally wake up every night to check their child, maybe even to disturb child’s sleep to check on whether a kid wants to urinate.
When a kid wets its bed, those are again the parents who need to change and wash the sheets and then to air the room. The problem generally subsides when a kid starts growing but in many cases, enuresis remains even after couple of years passed. A kid is then ashamed a lot when he or she has no control over the urination and the making the bed wet regularly.
Causes of Bedwetting

- Bladder size that is small and cannot retain the urine overnight
- Defects in urinary tract
- Hormonal imbalance
- Certain diseases such as diabetes, UTI, sickle-cell anemia etc.
