When should you seek treatment for your child's bed-wetting?

ANSWER

While most children will simply outgrow bed-wetting, for some it may become a problem. Parents should consider treatment for bed-wetting if their child is still wetting the bed between ages 6 and 7, according to the National Enuresis Society -- or sooner if the child seems troubled by bed-wetting. And at any age, if the child has other symptoms, such as the urge to urinate more often or if urinating is accompanied by burning, seek medical care immediately.
