My daughter will be 12 next month and still has bed wetting accidents. I believe she is considered secondary enuresis. My mother doesn't think it started until she hit her head years ago and developed a mild concussion. She was released from the hospital shortly after and they said she was fine. I do not know if the concussion plays a part. The concussion happened in October 2006 and she has been bed wetting ever since. I stopped using night time pants almost 2 weeks ago and she has had only 2 accidents. Should I just not give any liquids after 6:30p.m. and wake her up at night to go since she has depended on the night time pants for so long? Or is there possibly a more complex answer.
