Expert advice for a good night's rest

Expert advice for a good night's rest

Dr Omran: Occasional bed wetting is normal until your child reaches six to seven years of age. If it persists after that, it needs to be addressed by a urologist.

Michi: Some children do wet at night. If your child is a deep sleeper they will probably wet at night until they start producing enough of a hormone which limits the amount of pee produced when sleeping. This can happen anytime from two years old.
