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

Bed-Wetting Alarm

You've said that your child has had nighttime accidents since toilet training and is more than six years old. You've also said that your child doesn't show any signs of a medical reason for his bed-wetting.

Give your doctor a call to discuss. While bed-wetting regularly past the age of six can certainly happen, especially if the mother or father had the same problem, it can be embarrassing and emotionally difficult for the child.

Talk with your doctor about the available treatments, such as enuresis alarms and medications. Together, you and your doctor can decide what makes sense for your child.
