Oh, and stop waking him through the night. Obviously that is not working. Maybe get him to the bathroom before you go to bed. no sense in everyone losing sleep over this.

How old is he? PLEASE tell me you are not yelling at him or reprimanding him. It can take children up until 8 years old to fully have control of their little bladders. The muscles sometimes need extra time to develop. My suggestion? Make sure he is still allowed to drink until 1-2 hours before bed time. Obviously your 5pm is not working and he may be thirsty. Being thirsty is almost PAINFUL. Don't reprimand him or make him feel bad. It is not his fault. Nor is it yours. Invest in many overnight diapers. Invest in a couple of waterproof pads.

I do think there are many other benign reason that kids wet the bed, so don't panic. Hopefully it is just a developmental or behavioral issue to be dealt with over the m=next few months.

You also mention he pees a lot during waking hours a well, don't wait. The test for diabetes is simple and you will know for sure that is or isn't the case.

Don't wait a few weeks to go to the doctor. This much bed wetting is a hallmark of juvenile diabetes. Unless that has been ruled out, don't delay an evaluation. Especially the soaking of the bed. I don't mean to frighten you and I hope it is nothing more than a matter of him maturing a bit. You have to error on the side of caution.

It sounds like if it was abuse, he may needs some help. I would take him to the pediatrician to rule out medical conditions, and ask for a referral to a therapist. If this is due to emotional issues, they can help. Best of luck. Sounds like you are on the right track and very supportive.

Go up a size in the pull ups and get the bed covered. Don't cal him a good boy when the bed is dry... that will translate in his mind that he is a bad boy when it's wet... and he's not. He's asleep. He can't control what he does or does not do in his sleep. There is no 'good' about it. It's just his body.

It's possible that it's due to the abuse... or it could just be one of those things. I dealt w/ wet beds (only on occasion, thankfully) until one of my kids was 9...

Has he been checked out by a doctor? Is he in counseling? How old IS he actually?

And Hunni Bunni... you nephew is TWO. Have his mother get him better/bigger diapers, a bed cover, and leave the poor boy alone. Making him sit on the potty while he is screaming about it can make it take a million times longer for him to potty train.

I don't yell at him are anything of that nature I'm just trying to understand is this because of my daughter and the abuse. I'm only human. My oldest child is 31 but I'm just trying to find a way to help him. By asking these Q. Wouldn't trade them for the world just trying to find a way to get a handle on this.

Hello... my nephew is a little over 2 years old and he soaks the bed also. I mean soak. My sister sits him on the pottie and he screams bloody murder.. Oh geesh... you would think she is trying to hurt him. I sat there one day and watched this episode over and over.. and once he got off the pottie guess what happens...??? Yep... he used the bathroom on the floor when she was putting the pull up back on him. We all try to assist with this but I am not sure as to how to assist with this anymore....
