My son is great during the day accident free but he still wets the bed at night. I have tried cutting off drinks 2 hours before bed time and waking him up in the middle of the night to go, but no matter what when he wakes up in the morning he has wet the bed!! If any one knows any tips that would help please let me know! He is getting to the sleep over age and I am afraid that the other kids will make fun of him

It's just one of those things that will have to work itself out - boys can go up to the age of 12 before the finally stop - a friend of mine has the same problem - she cuts him off after dinner - they(the kids) go to bed at 8 - she will get him up at ten before she goes to bed - and again at about 1am - and then gets him up at 5am - - it's really just something that will work itself out - - but she said that the every couple hours of getting up helps - even tho she's more tired during the day from having to get up - it's worth it to not have to wash sheets everyday~
