    15 yr old girl bedwetting

    My stepdaughter has been bedwetting since the age of 5. It has improved over the years to where it's not nightly. But, I'm concerned since she will be turning 16 this year. She lives with her mother and she has tried the bed wetting alarms, waking her up at night, no liquids before bedtime, but no success. Does anyone else have children with the same problem? How common is this for teenage girls? When will it stop? I know she wants to stop, but says she doesn't feel she has to go and just wakes up wet in the morning. She's a heavy sleeper but I'm pretty sure that's not the only reason why it's continued this long. Should we be concerned enough to take her to the doctor again?

    • Take her yourselves
