6 YR OLD AND 4 YR OLD STILL IN PULL UPS AT NITE!

I would take the 6 yr old to the dr. My brother use to wet the bed all the time and they found he had a hole in his kidney. So he couldnt really control his bladder. Now the 4 yr old may just be seeing that the older is still doing so its ok if they do it.
my brother is the only one in our family to have the condition. He went through a lot of surgurys and tests. I hope all it is needed for your case is to just step up and put undies on them. A 6 yr old should not want to wear pull ups. Good luck.

Hello! I am new here, but I thought I would share my experience. My oldest son wet the bed for many years. He had a comprehensive medical work-up and it was normal. Being a nurse, limiting fluids may help, but know that kidneys will continue to produce urine throughout the day and night. I did find that waking my son during the night or early am was very helpful. Do you have a family history? My pediatrician told me that there may be a hereditary link?
