My 10 year old son still wets the bed. I have taken him to the dr and had him checked out and all is fine. He no longer drinks after a certain time in the evening and goes to the bathroom before bed and he's still wet. He uses Goodnight sleep pants and wets through them. Anyone else going through this - I would just love to know were not the only ones dealing with this. He is never punished for this problem either.

I have dealt with the issue with my daughter as well. She was using pull ups at night but often leaked through those as well. The doctor also told us that there was nothing wrong and we should wait for her to grow out of it. But that was taking years. After trying a few things and not finding anything that helped, we decided to go to a bedwetting clinic (we went to one run by Dr. Jacob Sagie). They have an at-home treatment option called TheraPee (www.bedwettingtherapy.com), if you don't live near any of their offices. She's been completely accident free for more than 6 months and is so relieved to be done with this nightmare.

Hi! I remember so well how frustrating and helpless I felt to help my son stop wetting the bed. He wet every single night until he was 8 years old. He just used pull ups when he was younger. I kept a no big deal attitude. When he reached age 8 the bedwetting began to lower his self esteem. He worried that his friends would find out and he want to go to sleepovers. So I talked with him about using a bedwetting alarm and we read the book Prince Bravery and Grace-Attack of the Wet Knights. He wanted to try the alarm. I purchased the malem with alarm and vibration. He slept right through it at first -which is typical of a child who wets at night. Typically the childs brain does not recognize the full bladder signal while sleeping. The alarm trains the brain to react to the full bladder signal. So I would wake him. Sometimes several times in one night. But gradually he began to wake by himself. And in less than three months he went from wet every single night to dry every single night. I found a lot of positive information about bedwetting and alarm use at www.braveryandgrace.com

Good luck and God Bless!



Also, I found the alarms and waterproof mattress pads at this webstore:

hope it helps!

Your definatly not the only one. Is he a very heavy sleeper ? I had a similar problem with my daughter. Along with what you are alreay doing I would suggest what we did. Get him up when you go to bed to go. If that is not really long after he goes to bed then the next thing we did was to wake her to go whenever my partner or I got up in the night to use the toilet. The bed wetting alarm is quite expensive and there is usually a waiting list as well. We became her alarm and after 6 months or so she started waking herself.

I'm going through the same thing w/ my 7 yr. old. Dr. suggested a bed-wetting alarm, but they can be pricey. He said he'll grow out of it, just doesn't know when and it's not that uncommon.

Sometimes it helps to take your child to a reputable chiropracter they can sometimes help to eliminate this problem. It worked for my son :)

Have you tried chiropractic? It is a natural healthy way to see if there is some type of nerve disturbance caused by a restriction in the spine. I work for a chiropractor and our clinic sees many children, again it is very safe and completely natural for the body.
