Wetting the bed can be an embarrassing issue among kids, but it’s actually very common. Statistics show that nocturnal enuresis or nighttime incontinence (the medical terms for bedwetting) is involuntary urination after age 5 or 6, and that more than 5 million children experience it. 15 percent of children still wet the bed by age 5, but less than 5 percent of kids do so by ages 8 to 11.
Bedwetting tends to run in families and is more common among boys than girls; experts estimate the ratio as roughly 2 boys to 1 girl. Although most children eventually outgrow this phase, here is what you need to know to help your child keep dry through the night.

Finally, have a firm rule that the bed wetting child must not eat after 7pm Or 8pm. He should ease himself before sleeping as well. That way, it’ll reduce the chances of bed wetting.
