Help!! My 7 year old step daughter keeps urinating her bed. My husband and I cut all fluids after 7pm. We tell her to use the bathroom before going to sleep. I even wake up and take her about 2 times to the bathroom and she still wets her bed. I took her to the doctor and we found out she has cystitis. After her treatment, there was still traces of blood in her urine. I took her for multiple ultrasounds, blood work, urine tests, etc and everything appears fine. Her mom says that she does not wet her bed at her house. My step daughter says the same thing. I am not sure what is happening. I ask her if she has nightmares at my house and she says she sleeps well. Seeing the Urologist in 2 days. I even bought pads to put on the bed, but she still wets it. Help!! Need all the advice I can get. We have tried incentive charts, praise, everything.

Bed wetting at 7 can be completely normal, but it is a bit odd that it is only happening at her father's house. If she were wetting in both homes I would think nothing of it, but with just wetting in the one home I'd be concerned about something psychological going on.
