Nocturnal enuresis, better known as bedwetting, occurs when a sleeping child cannot hold his or her urine at night.
How Boston Children's Hospital approaches bedwetting
There are several options for treating bedwetting. Your pediatric urologist can help guide you to what's best for you and your child, keeping in mind that the burden of therapy shouldn't outweigh the burden of the condition itself.
Some of the options offered here at Children's include:
As part of our renowned Department of Urology, Boston Children's Hospital has a dedicated Voiding Improvement Program (VIP). VIP's expert physicians and nurse practitioners take a comprehensive approach to helping children overcome voiding difficulties.
In addition, Children's understands that enuresis can cause emotional problems for your child. Our Division of Developmental Medicine is uniquely qualified to treat your whole child—physically and psychologically. A compassionate team of professionals address your child’s physical symptoms and emotional well-being and help your child stay dry.
Experts in Children's Center for Pediatric Sleep Disorders carefully learn about bedwetting and any other problems your child is having with sleep, and then thoughtfully develop a plan for solving them.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
