    Comments from the Bedwetting Store

    "Every year, 15% of children who wet the bed become dry without any intervention. This fact has led many doctors to simply reassure patients that the condition is not serious and that it will go away on its own. The problem with this approach is that bedwetting can affect a child's self-esteem. Therefore, it's short-sighted to ask a child to wait years to become dry if treatment can expedite the process."
