how many dry nites should a 15 year old have before he can stop wearing his night time pants? He just had a immature bladder. he only had like 3 accidents all this month. I told him he should be dry for 30 days before his completly dry is that fair

Buy him a plastic/rubber mat for his mattress. 3 nights in a month doesn't warrant Dry Nites, that's just being silly. It won't kill him to have to wash his bedding that infrequently.

He's 15. Let him decide. I let my 4.5 year old stop wearing pull ups at night after less than a week straight of dry nights because SHE wanted to try. We did have occasional bed wetting (anywhere from once a week to once every 6 months) for the next 4 years, but it wasn't a big deal at all.

Making a 15 year old go for a full month dry is ridiculous. Unless he has other issues you haven't mentioned.... he's perfectly capable of taking care of things if he DOES end up having another accident.

I would let him stop wearing the pants he is 15 let him feel like he is not a baby if he has an accident he gets to clean it up, I would say he is probably outgrown it.
