Bed wetting

I have a 6 year old son who wets the bed almost every night. I've heard that it's common in boys. How many others have this problem.

At 6yo it is quite common, 10%. I don't know the difference about boys and girls, anyway I've two girls and at 6yo both of them wet the bed every night. If he has not problems in the day time I wouldn't worry about it, just use pull ups or diapers and reassure him it will stop, there is nothing to be ashamed about.

My son is the one that had awesome bladder control from a very young age. My girls, on the other hand, wet the bed on occasion til around 9. It wasn't a nightly thing past around 4-4.5 though.

It IS quite normal for kids to still wet the bed at 5-8 years old. Personally I'd keep him in a nighttime pull up and not worry about it for another year or two.
