My middle son just turned 9 years old. Okay, I have been dealing with the fact that he is a bed wetter. I'm thinking that he will eventually grow out of it. So my husband and I started buying plastic mattress covering for his bed. Now this has been going on far too long now. He jumps on his mattress when he get excited, and rips the darn plastic up. So now along with the wetting the bed he now holds his bowels until he have practically stink on himself. He tries to wipe himself with wet wipes, and still makes a horrible mess all over his hands and any where in the bathroom. My husband said I baby him too much by cleaning it up, and not making him do it. If he does it he will only make another horrible mess. I have to wash clothes everyday because of this, and he have to take two showers a day. He is intellectually disabled.
