Q.

Weak Bladder

My seven year old daughter wets herself at school.
She also does it at night. This started a week ago and she's not drinking water whe she goes to bed and I do wake her up in the evening to go to the loo, but she still wets herself. She will do it twice in one evening.
Could it be the weak bladder? must I take her to the Paediatrician?

Thank you.

She is now at an age where her weak bladder is a problem and source of embarrassment to her. This problem is called enuresis. There are many causes for enuresis and also excellent treatments areavailable. Please take her to a paediatrician.
