General & Family Physician Dr. Shainaz Arif Kaware's  Response
Hello saleem ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
This problem of passing urine unknowing during sleep in bed is seen in some children and is called bedwetting and the reasons which are common are:-
-psychological like the child gets afraid due to stories of ghosts which are discussed in their school by fellow students;and if the child fears teacher he sees dreams of such thing causing bed wetting.
-incontinence of bladder neck
-in some cases the laziness of the child to arise from can be a reason
The commonest causes are the first 2 and you will have to discuss with your child to find the reason or get the child to a doctor and he will try to find the reason.And if the problem is regarding the incontinence the doctor(paediatrician) will advise treatment or you can consult a urologist.
