Bedwetting is a condition amongst young children where they cannot hold their urine for the entire night or do not wake up, even when the bladder is full. Children often outgrow bedwetting as they age, but if it continues, there is likely to be an emotional reason behind it (it is only occasionally a medical reason).

Here are a couple of traditional Indian tips to try and avoid bedwetting:
Avoid giving any liquid, when the child is about to go to bed. However you can give fresh cranberry juice one hour before going to bed.
Heat some olive oil and when it gets a little warm, gently rub it over the child’s abdomen and massage it for a few minutes.

As the reason associated with the bedwetting may be related to emotions, it is advisable to consult a health practitioner if the condition continues.
