Q.

Bed wetting

My child will be 6 years next week and still wets the bed. We wake up at about 11-12pm to take her to the toilet but on many occasions she has already wet the bed.
We are desperate as she is really embarrassed about her problem.
Many thanx

Paediatrician

This bedwetting problem is known as 'enuresis' and is certainly embarrassing for a 6 year old. It is important to take her to see a paediatrician. Very effective treatment is available these days to treat enuresis.
