My son is 3 1/2 yr old - I started toilet training him when he was 2 1/2 and it was really easy - he would rarely have daytime accidents and very few night accidents - infact he goes everyday to day care - and very few accidents there too. But from the past 2/3 weeks he has started bed wetting every night - and also at day care nap time. I have had talks with him - (I never yell at him) I explained how yucky it is etc but does not work. In fact bedwetting does not even wake him up - we find out only in the morning. What should I do.....? Any suggestions.....

If he were having accidents during the day I would think possibly bladder infection or something, but with it only happening at night.... maybe a growth spurt or just a fluke.

Thanks Michelle & Dove - another problem is he refuses to wear a pamper ....after all he is a big boy now... I am just worried - is it some kind of a psychological problem - should I seek medical attention - or am I being paranoid....

Stick him in a pull up or diaper when he sleeps and let him be. He is quite normal. It's not 'yucky' and he can't help it.

First of all stop telling him it is yucky tell him accidents happen children at this age still do not have complete control of their bodily functions and can not help it if they wet the bed. sometimes the bladder does not mature as fast as the child and the child can wet the bed up to the age of 11, I have known some kids who are such sound sleepers that they never wake up or notice they are wet. If it is becoming an issue tell him that he will have to start wearing pullups until he has dry nights.
