User :   Hi, I am a male and have been married for Two and half years now and we have a One year 4 Month baby boy. From past a month my wife is wetting the bed frequently (two out of three nights), and she has been hiding it from me. However i noticed it and a bit hesitant to ask her as she is hesitant to tell me about it. What may be the cause for this? and what is the remedy to stop this? Please let me know so that i can help her. Because of this she is not in proper mood and feels dejected all the time without telling me the problem. Please advice. ASAP.
Thank You,
