Childhood bladder and bowel problems

Incontinence problems like wetting the bed, daytime wetting or forgetting to go to the toilet are common and normal in young children. But the impacts of Child and adolescent continence problems may result in significant distress for families when child continence is not achieved at the expected time.

At Gold Coast Pelvic Health & Physiotherapy we understand that growing up possesses enough challenges on our children and youth, without dealing with the challenges, social anxiety, worry and fear of bowel and bladder child continence problems.

Facts about Childhood Continence:

  • By the age of four, most children have gained daytime bladder control, however, daytime wetting occurs in up to 12% of 5-17 year olds, and is more common in girls than boys.

  • One third of these children will also experience bedwetting

  • Bedwetting is a very common condition with approximately 1 in 5 children in Australia wetting the bed and up to 15% of 7 year old children and 1% of teenagers experience regular night-time wetting. It is also common for prolonged bed wetting to run in families.

  • Both of these problems tend to improve with age but children do not necessarily grow out of it and specialist medical help is needed to help resolve this problem.

  • Regular soiling affects about 1-3% of children, and it is more common in boys. Some of these children may also have problems with daytime wetting or bedwetting.

  • Constipation is common and occurs at some time in over 25% of children.
