Bed-Wetting in Children and Adults

Bed Wetting

The transition from wearing diapers to being able to use the potty is an important milestone for children. Accidents can happen at any time and are expected. However, if your child’s nighttime bedwetting occurs more and more, this may be a sign of something else going on with your child.

For most kids, bedwetting is not caused by any medical reason. However, there are some children who wet the bed because of an underlying sleep disorder. This sleep disorder is sleep apnea, the most common disorder connected with bed wetting.

Improper and unrestful sleep causes sleeping problems in a child. This affects and decreases the child’s response time, which leads to bed wetting. Additionally, sleep disorder puts added stress and pressure on the bladder, which in turn contributes to a rise in urine output.
