Paediatrician

You are correct, it is likely that your daughter will have a bed wetting problem if she is not treated now. In fact very effective treatment for bed wetting is available, but this type of treatment is not given until children are 5 years old.In the meantime you can try simple measures such as limiting her fluids after 4 pm and trying a star chart reward system.Your daughter may still be a bit young for this method,but it is worth a try.

If your daughter is still bedwetting at 5 years she should be seen by her paediatrician.
