Hi everyone!
I am having trouble getting my almost three year old boy Branden to stay dry at night, ( he is completely trained during the day and has been since he was two) I have two older boys and at this age they were not wetting the bed anymore. I make sure not to give a lot of fluids before bed and we always go potty before bed but he is still wetting, any tips?
thanks

Me, too! Our four, almost five year old is having issues wetting the bed every night almost and even in his pants at home, but never when he's at Pre-K!!! Not sure why this is when he was doing so well for so long!!! Thanks for any help/ideas on this, everyone!!!

I have 2 bedwetters at the moment and when I spoke to their doctor a few weeks ago she gave me some tips. First, no caffiene at all and no red dyes i.e. cherry soda, slushies etc. Also, she said to cut back on chocolate and reduce liquids after 7pm. I also have my children use the restroom several times before bed. It has helped a bunch. Good luck!

My son does wet the bed once and a while. I always make sure that he goes to the bathroom before bed, sometime a few times. I always remind him that we will go potty more in the morning, but if he has to go, he needs to go in the bathroom. I think with me reminding him about going helps him to remember. It will happen all in time:)

Hello,
I had exactly the same with my son. He was trained during the day just before 2, but kept needing his night nappy until he was almost three. He has just turned three now, and has been dry at night for about 6 weeks. Don't rush it. Just keep his night nappy on until he has stopped wetting it for at least a week in a row, and make a big fuss of him when he keeps it dry. You can't make him ready any sooner by stressing about it. He will be ready when he is ready.

that comes last and he is probably not ready yet...my oldest one had a 6 months or so separation between day time and night time dryness accomplishment. Don't stress it, he'll get it eventually.

My son has been completely dry at night now for 2 months and what we did was limit his fluids from 1830 onwards, get him to pee just before bed (around 1930-2000) then when I go to bed around 2200, since he has a potty in his room, I'd wake him to pee on the potty. I found that getting him to pee a bit later really helped. Don't worry about waking them up, they go straight back to sleep and it's a lot less stressful than having them wet the bed and having to strip it all off in the middle of the night. I hope this helps.

I was told by the paeditrician they dont consider it a problem till your child is 7. My sister bought one of those blankets that lets off an alarm soon as some wee hits it. However she said at first it woke everyone up except her son. lol. I think it took about 4 weeks till he stopped and he was 7.

Thanks I was just feeling like something was wrong since my first two stopped wetting the bed so early, it was never a problem but now I know its normal lol. I didn't think sleep thing either I will have to pay attention and see if he wets more on nights he is super tired. Its funny how even when you have been through this stage twice you can still learn something new.

Hi! My son has also been trained during the day for about a year now, and only a week for number 2's ( finally!). Bed wetting is usually different for every child and at least half children are not fully dry until they reach around 5. My daughter was by 2 1/2 but my son still has around 3/7 wet nights. i think they just have deeper sleeps some nights. I have a 5 year old niece who still wets occasionaly but apparently still normal.
