My 5 yr old DD wakes up wet every night. She still wears a pull up. I have limited to no drinks a hour before bed besides a couple sips of water and also using the toilet before bed.
My 3 yr old DS wakes up dry most nights and I dont know what to do anymore.
relax- common. It's called Nocturnal enuresis
She's probably a deep sleeper who's hormone levels (which reduce production of urine) is off a bit. Google the term for more info.

I don't think most insurance policies consider it a problem until they are 7. I think some kids just need more time to grow out of it. I had a friend that has a DD that wet the bed until she was in second grade. Not every night, but often enough to raise concerns. She was a very deep sleeper as well.
I know that some insurance policies will pay for those alarm things that will go off when they detect moisture, but it's really more to train the parent to go wake the child up to use the restroom because a deep sleeping child won't necessarily wake up to the alarm.
I don't know at what age a Pediatrician considers it a problem though.
