ERIC's Guide to Childhood Daytime Wetting explains why wetting during the day happens and what to do to manage or treat it. It also explains how the body makes wee and what jobs the kidneys, ureters and bladder do.

The guide details how to avoid bladder problems by drinking 6-8 cups of water a day, avoiding drinks like coca cola and tea, emptying the bladder properly several times a day, and getting checked for underlying problems like constipation, Urinary Tract Infections, an overactive bladder and dysfunctional voiding.

The guide suggests people to talk to for help with daytime wetting such as the school nurse, GP or continence advisor.
