15% of 7 year olds and 5% of 10 year olds still wet the bed at night so don't get too worried!
Bedwetting can be worrying and frustrating, but it's common for children to accidentally wet the bed during the night. The problem usually resolves in time.
Many parents expect children aged 3 to be dry at night. Although many children are dry at this age, it is common to need nappies at night until school age. However, even beyond this age, bedwetting is common. About 1 in 7 children aged 5, and 1 in 20 children aged 10 wet their bed at night. Bedwetting is still considered normal in children under the age of 5 years.
