Children and Incontinence


  • As with all developmental milestones, children can achieve bladder control at different ages. Typically, the youngest age is 24 months.
  • Functional Incontinence is very common in children. This means that, though no physical abnormality is found, incontinence is still present.
  • Nocturnal Enuresis, better known as bed wetting, is very common in children, even up to age 7.
  • Another type of incontinence in children is Organic Incontinence, which means that the incontinence is related to a disease or disorder.
