n. involuntary discharge of urine while in bed or asleep. Although it is often associated with nighttime incontinence, it can happen day or night and more often among boys. It becomes a problem at ages 4-5 or older when bladder control should be in place. Also called nocturnal enuresis or sleep enuresis. See enuresis- also elimination disorder.

BED-WETTING: "Considered the main symptom of bedwetting, involuntary urination usually happens at night and as often as twice a month or more."
