Nocturnal Enuresis

Nocturnal enuresis is defined as the involuntary urination during sleep without any inherent suggestion of frequency of bedwetting after the age at which bladder control usually occurs. It is considered very normal for a child up to the age of 5 years, and is common up to the age of 10 years.

Mostly, this type of bedwetting is related to a stressful event (e.g. birth of a sibling, parent divorce, etc.). Eating disorders and some medicines can cause secondary bedwetting.
