My son will be 10 years old this year. He is an extremely deep sleeper and still wets the bed every night. Sometimes so much that leaks through his Goodnite. I've tried cutting off his drinking early which didn't help. I've even set my alarm to wake him up throughout the night, but because of his heavy sleeping I can't wake him up and end up guiding him in his sleep to the bathroom. Let's just say I don't think either of us enjoyed that technique. I've spoken to his doctor about it and he doesn't seem very concerned. He insists it is very common among boys his age especially deep sleepers. He has suggested the alarm that activates when he wets himself, but considering the smoke detector doesn't even wake him up I doubt that would either. Do other moms of boys his age experience this same challenge? Or have overcome the same challenge? Any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.
