Any tips on how to help a 6yr old stop wetting bed on a nightly basis. I've tried everything I can think of and dont mind but he's getting upset as his 3yr old sister has been dry for a year

Thanks for the advise, I've tried limiting fluids, getting him up (he just goes to jelly and wont use the toilet) Star charts worked for a while but as soon as the novelty wore off, so did the dry nights. As I said I really dont mind, But he really wants to be dry and is getting upset about the fact that his little sister is dry and he isn't.

my son wet the bed until he was 7. i took him to a nocturnal enuresis clinic, which was refered to us through my health visitor. see if u have one in your area. they helped with reward charts, confidence building and support, they also supplied us with an alarm. which let off a buzzing noise when it detected dampness, so it would wake him up so he could go to the toilet. good luck

Talk to your pediatrician too. There are medicines available if he doesn't stop by a certain age and you've exhausted all other avenues.

Yes, the best thing ive found with my 3 year old is limiting liquids in the evening and remembering to have her go potty before bed (that was the hard part!). I also woke her up before i went to bed to have her go again and now she wakes herself up when she has to go in the night!

I have just started working on night time potty training for my 3 year olds. I have found that if I stop giving them liquids around 6, have them use the potty before bed, and then wake them up like Tonya does, it seems to help. We have had a few dry mornings but we are still working on it. Good luck to you.

Hi there....I have a 6 year old son with the same problem. I have found that I try to get him up before I go to bed and have him go potty for me. He does then goes right back to bed and goes back to sleep. I am not sure if this will work for ya but we have had a dry bed for awhile now. I hate to have to wake him but like I said, he goes right back to sleep for me.
