Bedwetting is most often a developmental issue in children and a large majority of children who bed wet do not have any underlying disease or reason, neither do they do it on purpose.
There are 2 types of Bedwetting – Primary and Secondary.
Primary means bedwetting that has been ongoing since early childhood without a break.
Secondary bedwetting is bedwetting that starts up after the child has been dry at night for a significant period of time, at least 6 months.
