Learn why children wet the bed and at what age parents should be concerned.
by: Dr. Jeremy Friedman
ed-wetting, also known as enuresis, happens in about 40 percent of three-year-olds and 20 percent of five-year-olds. It is more likely to happen in boys and tends to run in families. If you were a bed-wetter, your child has a 45 percent chance of following in your wet footsteps. If both parents were bed-wetters the chance goes up to 77 percent!
