Enuresis

(En español: Enuresis)

Say: en-yuh-ree-sis

Enuresis is the fancy name for peeing your pants. It can mean accidents that happen in the day or night, but most of the time enuresis refers to wetting the bed while sleeping. Not many kids talk about it, but many kids do it. The good news is that some kids will stop wetting the bed without any special treatment. Others may need to train their bodies to hold the pee longer and can get encouragement from a chart that tracks their dry nights.
