Q.

Bedwetting

My granddaughter is 5 and has a problem with bedwetting. She does not have anything to drink for a while before sleeping and goes to the toilet before going to bed at night. My daughter takes her again before she goes to bed. She does not wake up when she is about to have a wee. Sometimes she will be dry for 3 weeks but then will have a few nights of a wet bed. What can we do

Paediatrician

There are excellent treatments for enuresis available these days. Please ask her paediatrician to see your granddaughter.
