I had a child with a similar issue and it lasted longer than that. We went so far as to have an expert come to sit with us, they wanted $3000 to cure the child. My child just slept to deeply. What seemed to be the end of the issue is when they started waking to an alarm. It programed the child to wake to a sensation other than me yelling and yelling every morning. It is worth a try.

hey Becky, i know you've probably tried it, but try not to give any drinks at least 2 hours b4 bedtime....and make your son go to the toilet b4 he goes and he says he can't...run the water from the tap and he'll go.....I woke my daughter up to pee b4 I went to bed and after about 10 days she was dry. I don't know if it's right or not, maybe your dr can tell u, I heard that the bladder is the last part of our body to grow when there is a growth spurt also....He'll be fine...good luck, it's probably advice you've heard b4 I know.

Did u try the pull ups with the bells? hear they are good but never tried them...when the child begins to pee, a bell goes off to wake them! take care and wishing u dry nights soon!
