Doctor Questions Bedwetting

Is bed-wetting normal in children?

My nephew who is 7 years old wets his bed almost every night and I noticed that while he was at a sleep over at our house. Is this normal?

Usually bed wetting in children is due to stress or any recent change in environment. I would take him to the pediatrician to run some basic blood and urine tests.
Some children bed wet until puberty. If he has been dry, but started bed wetting again, this is abnormal. If he has never been dry, it may take several more years to get dry at night. There are several medications available for this.
