Homeopathic Treatment for Bedwetting

What is Bedwetting?

Bedwetting is the involuntary and unintentional passing of urine when asleep. Medically, it is termed Nocturnal Enuresis.

Children usually attain control over the bladder in the daytime by the age of 4. By the age of 6 in girls and 7 in boys, control over night-time urination is achieved. It has been seen that children who suffer from bedwetting usually do not have problems with urine control in the daytime.

What are the symptoms of Bedwetting?

Bedwetting can either be Primary or Secondary.

  • Primary bedwetting is when the child has never achieved control over the bladder.
  • Secondary bedwetting means that the child had achieved bladder control for at least 6 months before suffering from bedwetting.
  • Contrary to what many people believe, bedwetting, in most cases, is not due to a psychological issue.

Why does Bedwetting occur?


  • Poor toilet habits:Children find urinating boring. That is why it is common to see that many children put off urinating for as long as possible.
  • Increased urine production:Some children naturally produce more amount of urine in the evenings.
  • Deep sleep:Many children do not awaken when their bladder is full.


When bedwetting begins after a significant period of successful bladder control, the cause is usually a physical condition or an emotional issue.

  • Diabetes:Diabetes results in increased urination due to the excess sugar in urine. This can trigger bedwetting.
  • Small bladder:The child’s bladder may not be developed completely.
  • Urinary infection:A urinary infection can irritate the soft, inner lining of the bladder resulting in increased frequency of urination.
  • Hormonal deficiency:The hormone ADH or anti-diuretic hormone is responsible for decreased urination. When ADH levels go down at night, urine production increases and may result in bedwetting.
  • Emotional problems and stress:A child who experiences something he finds difficult to cope with can begin bedwetting. For e.g. arrival of a sibling, starting school, parental fights, etc.
