My five year old did the same thing. Have you guys moved recently to a new area. Sometimes when there is a big change its hard to get them to get up and go to the restroom cause they are uneasy.

i would talk to his pediatrician maybe there is something with his bladder that prevents him from being able to hold it.. my daughter is 4 and has accidents once in a while mostly when she is doing something and at night she wears pull ups which is fine with me as long as she is happy and healthy i'm not sweating the small stuff

My son is only two but i have a nine year old sister who wet the bed frequently at my mothers house but not at her fathers house (ironically enough) so we took her to the doctor and she kept coming down with UTI's that have no symptoms. So I would check that out, boys can get UTI's as well. Also, the doctors think it could have part to do with stress. If he's wetting during the day, I would remind him ever 2-3 hours to go use the bathroom, even if he doesnt think he has to go, just try. That might help with the daytime wetting.

I'm not into the stage where I have to deal with bed wetting but I did find something of interest at a website that might interest you. The website is www.onestepahead.com. Under their bath and health they have a bunch of ideas to help in the bed wetting department. They might have something that might help you and your son.

My son is 4 and still is they told me to try salty foods, no drinks 2 hours before bedtime. It was really weird when my son would sleep with me he wouldn't wet the bed and when he would sleep in his bed he would. They also told me boys are harder to get trained at night and also his bladder might not be big enough. Try a sticker chart or something he's old enough to understand the reward system.
