Researchers at Oxford University and University College of London are looking into the financial impact of bedwetting on families and the NHS. To complete their survey, please cut and pasted this link into a new window:

Here's some more info about the research:

Bedwetting is a common problem that affects 20% of 5 year olds and persists into adolescence in 5% of the population. Previous research has confirmed that bedwetting has significant social and psychological impact on children. In addition, it is also estimated that bedwetting has a significant financial impact and this study aims to quantify this.

The study is being conducted by researchers at the University of Oxford and University College of London. The data you provide is anonymous and confidential, meaning, there is no way of tracing information back to anyone. We wish to study the economic impact on families and the NHS by analysing direct and indirect expenditure of bed wetting. The data gathered will be used as evidence to inform governing bodies, aid funding of children's incontinence charities and initiate further research.

Thank you for your time.

However, bed-wetting can make a few issues for your youngster, including: Responsibility and shame, which can prompt low confidence. Loss of chances for social exercises, like sleepovers and camp. Rashes on your kid's base and genital region — particularly in the event that your kid stays in bed wet clothing.
