When a child starts to wet the bed again after being dry for months or sometimes even years, there’s often an underlying medical or emotional problem. The child with secondary bedwetting is much more likely to have other symptoms, such as daytime wetting. Those problems include urinary tract infections, metabolic disorders (e.g. various types of diabetes), external pressure on the bladder (e.g. extreme constipation by a large rectal stool mass) as well as neurologic disorders of the spinal cord.
