Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.


You've said that your child has had nighttime accidents since he was toilet trained, is less than six years old, and doesn't have any signs of a medical problem.

Most likely, your child's bed-wetting is entirely normal and should go away by itself. Make sure you have a plastic cover on your child's mattress. Try not to scold your child for accidents. He most likely can't control them! Instead, be very positive with him whenever he has a dry night. To help him stay dry, limit fluid intake before bedtime.

Call your doctor if you have any concerns about your child, or if he is continuing to wet the bed after age six.
