My 4 year old is bed wetting if i do not wake him up at night. Is this normal. Is he not suppose to wake himself up at night? Should I be worried

I just had this conversation with our pediatrician the beginning of January because my daughter who will be 4 on Saturday was completely potty trained during the day but would wet the bed 5 nights out of 7. Girls can wet the bed until they are 6 and boys until 8 without concern according to our pediatrician. Pull-ups or Good Nights work great so that you don't have to wash sheets every morning. Good Nights are a little thicker and come in bigger sizes depending on the size son. The beginning of this month she wanted to go to bed in undies and I said we would try but if she was wet we were going back to the Good Nights. I am happy to say that she has done great 1 wet night all month. It does get better.

This is pretty normal. Your childs bladder is just not fully developed yet. Definitely use overnights, and a waterproof pad if you don't already. If you are concerned, do speak with your pediatrician about this. Many kids go through this. Some will bed wet until around 8 years old when the bladder and all the nerves associated with telling them that they need to go are fully developed. Good luck momma!

bedwetting is not uncommon in kids aged 4-10. my own siblings used to wet the bed till they were 10 years old.i wish i had heard of bedwetting friends were discussing chummie bedwetting alarms the other day. it had rave reviews on amazon and they all seemed pretty satisfied with the results.
