Accidents in Bed

My 9 yr old still wets the bed, not every night but just about. I've tried everything I could think of to try an get him to stop. I've tried waking him up every few hours to go potty, setting an alarm, bought those "cool" pull ups, made him stop drinking anything after 7pm, nothing seems to work. I know sometimes their bladder hasn't caught up with their bodies yet. But I am outta options. Can anyone suggest some things I could do or try?? Thank You!

once my little boy at 2 and half was potty trained and was sleeping in his own bed, i did have that problem where he would wet the bed (not every night) but some of the time. i too tried not giving him a drink after a certain time and used pull ups. nothing really worked. i just got him to go to the toilet every night before he fell asleep and didnt make an issue out of it if he did wet the bed. now it hardly ever happens.  if he still continues i would speak to your doctors they maybe able to suggest something!! good luck

i have a 4 yr old who didnt potty train till he was 3 i tried everything and was getting really wound up with it. a friend told me to stop trying. once the pressure was off he did it by himself maybe the same could apply here. hope it helps.
