My daughter is 4 and has been potty trained since 18ms old. She was night time trained for a while then started bed wetting. Now, it's almost every night. Help me break the habit!!!

for those of you who asked to be updated, the dr said to keep track of wet nights for a month then we will decide a tactic if it's a problem or not if it's an age thing. Dr also says since she was 6 1/2 wks early, it is not uncommon to take a little longer. The fact that she has dry nights at all is in her favor. We have been dry for a week now though!

My son was a bed wetter when I heard about chiropractic care for the condition. What sounded like a too-easy-to-be-true solution turned out to be a REAL solution. He hasn't had any more accidents since I started taking him.

No Cherish she isn't losing weight. She doesn't really seem more tired either....once in a while she is more tired but not on a regular basis.

I would talk to the Doc about it. my son had been night trained for a few months when he was 3 and then out of nowhere he started wetting the bed. I tried the drink restrictions and It never worked. The doc told me he was constipated and it was putting alot of pressure on his bladder at night once we fixed that he stopped wetting the bed. When my neighbors little girl wets the bed at night its always becouse of a bladder infection and she is 3. Good luck.

I have been told never to wake them because you are controlling the bladder and it's a no no. I took one of my kids to see a doc, and he told me there are different types of sleepers and the only one we seem to worry about is the bed wetter. You have your talker and your walker and wetter. She maybe in a deep sleep and not know or I learned not to make a deal out of it and she learned chocolate milk was a bad thing for her to drink but it did stop. You just need to be patient or if it's really bad you can seek prof. help but with mine it was a matter that she had to want to do it or the alarms they wanted me to try would not work. She is only four.

i added an extra night light to my lil ones room too, that way it was easier for her to wake up when she needed to, i also had to wake my child up before i went to bed even though she was half asleep she would pee and go back to bed waking up dry in the morning. Sometimes they just get into a too deep of a sleep to wake up, this happened when my daughter went from napping to being awake all day she was so tired at night time she couldnt wake up to pee.

Is she drinking before bed? Don't let her drink 3 hours before bedtime and make a chart just out of construction paper and get some stickers. Everytime she makes it through the night let her pick a sticker and put it on the chart and give her positive reinforcements... like if you get a sticker everyday this week we will go get ice cream or you could get her a surprise (like from the dollar store) even take her and let her pick something out at the 4! store that way you know anything she chooses will be fun to her and affordable to you! Keep us updated..Good Luck!!
