World Bedwetting DayWhat is World Bedwetting Day?

World Bedwetting Day raises awareness that bedwetting is a common medical condition that can and should be treated. The day’s slogan is ‘Time to Take Action’ in recognition that much more can be done to diagnose and treat children who wet the bed. 

Bedwetting can have a serious impact on a child's happiness and well being. It's not something they will necessarily grow out of.  We want to empower all parents and carers of children who are wet at night to get help from a health professional from the age of five years.

In 2019, World Bedwetting Day will take place on May 28.
