wetting the bed

Welcome to another of our Google Hangouts where we talk about everyday subjects around parenting from potty training to teasing at school.  Today, I am joined again by our resident coach, Beckie Whitehouse of Be Confident Coaching to talk about wetting the bed and to understand bedwetting coupled with nightime potty training.

This is something my own son struggled with when he was younger, thankfully he has now grown out of it.

Around 1 in 12 children at 4.5 years old are still wetting the bed but it can also affect 1 in 100 adults.  If this is the case then there may be medical reasons for it so it is worth popping to your local GP to have a chat.

Some of the topics we cover today are:

  • advice on wetting the bed and night time potty training
  • drinking before bedtime
  • ‘lifting’ at bedtime
  • wetting the bed in older children
  • Is your child worried about something that may cause them to wet the bed?


Is your child still wetting the bed?  Do you have any concerns over bedwetting?  Feel free to email me at info@kiddcharts.co.uk or add your comments in the box below.
