Bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) and daytime incontinence can be a source of frustration for parents and children. Children, especially as they get older, can feel embarrassed, anxious, ashamed and even angry about their day- and night-time wetting. Parents often feel confused, worried and sometimes even exasperated as they try to understand why the child cannot control his or her urination. At the CHOC Children's Urology Center Bedwetting and Daytime Incontinence Program, we understand these frustrations, and work with children and their families to find solutions.
 
Day- and night-time wetting is typically kept a secret among families, leading many to believe that no one will understand what they are going through or that there is no actual medical treatment for the problem. Yet according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), nighttime bedwetting affects 5 million children older than age 6 in the U.S. Also, about 25% of school aged children have some form of voiding dysfunction.
