hello all, i have a son that is 7. ever since i got him out of diapers (at age 3) he is always wetting the bed. right now we have a system where we stop all fluid intake at 6 pm.. and then we make him go before bed, and wake him up at least once or twice during the night to go potty.. but sometimes he still has accidents.. i dunno what else to do... can anybody help??

I haven't had a child go through this, however, I wet the bed at that age *blush*. My mum tried a few different things, but in the end, she found a mattress protecter that had a siren. Whenever liquid touched it, it sounded. Scared the crap out of me and I never wet the bed again.

If this is something that you want to try, have a look online for one. I wouldn't have a clue what they are called sorry. Also, I used to wet the bed because I had bladder issues combined with a fear of the dark. So perhaps there is more to it. Hope that helps! Good luck!
