4yr Old Wetting the Bed

Christina - posted on 09/01/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




My daughter has been potty trained since she was 2 years old, but she will not stay dry at night. She still wears a pullup to bed and constantly wets it. She goes so much sometimes that the pullup soaks through to her bed. She recently had her 4yr checkup and the doctor was a little concerned but could offer no advice. I have tried making her wear underwear to bed but she wets everything then. We potty before bed, and I even wake her up in the middle of the night to go. Nothing is working. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?? Thanks!!

my daughter is 3 and was doing the same thing try not giving her any thing to drink an hour before bed and make sure she goes a couple of times before you lay her down that seem to help alot with my daughter but i still keep her in a pull up just in case

have you ask her to doctor to refer her to a predication urologist to have her eventuated, My daughter who is now 9 years old wet the bed every night until she was 8 1/2 years old and she had to have surgery to fix the little tubes that run from the kidneys to the bladder they were malformed once those were fixed she was able to sleep all night long without bed wetting

Unfortunately some children's bladders don't finish developing until they are almost 9 years of age.
All you can do is keep waking her up at night and perhaps start lessening how much she has to drink in the 2-3 hours leading up to bed time.
If she's not waking up or her bladder isn't big enough to go through the whole night and she sleeps deeply she's not doing it maliciously.

Good luck!
