What children are more likely to experience bedwetting?
Factors that can increase the chance of a child to wet their bed while sleeping include: - A family history of bedwetting; - Constipation and other digestion problems; - Being a boy; - Being a deep sleeper; - Having a small or over-active bladder, and; - Drinking a lot before bedtime. Emotional factors are not a major influence on bedwetting. However, stress or changes in circumstance can occasionally trigger or exacerbate bedwetting in a child.
