(HealthDay News) -- Bed wetting is common in young children who
are learning to control the need to urinate during sleep.
The American Academy of Family Physicians says bed-wetting isn't
from naughty behavior or laziness. According to the academy, there
may be a medical problem behind the bed-wetting child's behavior,
Reducing fluids before bed and having your child go to the
bathroom when starting the bedtime routine (and again just before
sleep) will often help reduce bed-wetting, the academy advises.
