Bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis, is a very common condition that affects one in eight children at the age of six years. Left untreated only half of these children will grow out of the condition by the age of ten years. Children will commonly experience anxiety and embarrassment, particularly, when invited to sleepovers or school camps. This can impact on their self-esteem at an important stage in their development.

The impact of bedwetting on the family may be significant. 

  • Parents and the child frequently experience broken sleep. 
  • The added time and cost of laundering bed linen and nightwear. 
  • The cost to families using disposable nappy products to help manage the child's bedwetting is substantial. 

All these factors create additional stress on already busy families.
