Bed wetting is a condition where a child, usually over the age of 4 or 5, cannot hold their urine overnight, or sometimes during the day. Causes can be jealousy, anger, a new baby, or family discord. Bed wetting can be a nervous condition or something more serious such as diabetes, cystitis, or urinary blockage.

Also recommended may be dietary changes such as eliminating junk food and sodas, especially caffeinated sodas, and encouraging drinking real fruit juices and water.
