I have a 5 year old little girl who has been fully potty trained since she was 2 1/2. for the past 3 months she has started wetting the bed only at night. i have tryed everything,when i ask her she says its because she feels lazy and dont want to get up to potty. im so lost on what to do so i just bought pull ups for night time. i feel like im just making it easier for her and not solving the problem. if anyone has any advise on what i can or should do please help! thanks :)

I don't want to sound mean, but if she says it is because she is being lazy then don't enable her to be lazy. When my daughter started wetting her pants right before we would leave the house, I was given the advice to have her leave anyway, wet pants and all, to show her that I wasn't going to indulge her actions. This was really hard, and I have to admit I did not always follow through (it is embarrassing to go out with a girl with wet pants and I like my car to NOT smell like pee...). You could try going in to wake her and make her use the potty when you are on your way to bed, maybe if she got used to the routine she would start doing it again on her own. I would grin and bear the dirty sheets and take away the pull ups too, having to finish the night in a wet bed may encourage her to start going to the bathroom on her own again.

I seriously went through the same thing, and I thought long and hard about the pull ups, but really in the end they are more expensive than laundry detergent! Good Luck :)

thank you,im gonna give it a try. i know the pull ups may have been a bad idea, but washing bed clothes ever day starts to get expensive after awhile. maybe if i let her lay in it and she smells it she will stop.
