my 6 year old still wets the bed on occasion, and we found she didnt do it as often when she was put on the toilet late at night. if she continues to have accidents though, or complaining about stomach pains, then i would speak to a doctor, just to make sure theres no physical reason

They make special diapers for bed wetters. they come in boys and girls sizes for older children. try them. also i would talk to your doctor about the problem you are having with her.maybe they can give you some advice on what to do or even test her to make sure that she doesn't have any kind of problem going on that needs medical attention. good luck and hope everything works out okay

hm my daughter is 4 and is still in pull ups at night ... i believe they grow out of it just let her stay in the pull ups it wont last that much longer but some kids wet the bed at night till they are 8 or 9 maybe her bladder is not ready to hold it all night. i dont see the big deal if it is only at night, just put a pull up on her so you dont have to get up with her at night they make them in her size now.. pampers has the under jams i find them to be reasonably priced and she never wets through them

If she only does it at night, she may have that one disorder. I am not sure of the name of it. But she may not be able to help it! Good luck!

bless your heart!!!!!!!!!!! I know its hard but really it will come to an end! I was a bed wetter myself my parents found a company through the dr that sold a metal bed cover it went on the bed with a cloth cover over it it would set an alarm off at the minute of the 1st sign of wet so it would wake all of us up and mom would run me to the bathroom! it started training me to get up when i felt the need to go to the bathroom! lots of Doctors say no milk after 6 pm will help and always a potty break before bed time. My niece and my cousin have the same trouble its very hard for the child too! We get so embarressed and then poor mom and dad are beat! if she goes to bed earlier than you try waking her to go to the bathroom before you go to bed. or even when the new baby wakes up for a bottle wake the other up to go potty. Us hard sleepers can kinda sleep walk to the bathroom and then go right back to bed! Sometimes its something with the bladder not anything you are doing wrong! and giving a drink every now and then isnt wrong you guys are doing what you can do! it will stop but remove the pull up! it trains the brain its okay to go whenever because you "diaper on" keep an extra set of sheets so you can just pull the cover off and throw on more sheets on! sorry I blab and blab I am just very passionate about this subject! good luck to you!

We stop drinks at teatime which is about 5.30 ish and they are normally asleep by 7pm. The 5year old sleeps through fine, but we have to 'pot' out two year old. It means we go into her room before we go to bed, around 10pm, and gently sit her on her potty and whisper to her to have a wee. She stays asleep but goes fine. She is then dry the rest of the night. Do you have one of those matress protectors? They can go on top of the bed sheet, and if the child wees it absorbs it and you can then just take it off, leaving the clean dry sheet underneath. It makes bed wetting so much easier at 4am!! Perhaps be a bit stricter on the drinks and bedtime, and give the night 'potting' a whirl too! Hope this helps!
