You are not alone
Bedwetting is more common than many parents may think.
16% of 5 year olds and 10% of 7 year olds regularly wet the bed - having at least 1 wet night over a 3-month period.
For some children bedwetting can be much more frequent - with at least 2 wet nights a week. This can cause anxiety for them and their families - along with the additional considerations of sleep disturbance and extra washing.
Children who wet the bed have a significantly lower perceived competence than children who don't, concerning physical appearance and self-esteem.
There is also a tendency to a lower perceived competence in children who wet the bed regarding their scholastic skills and social acceptance.
