So *almost* 7yo DD started wetting the bed in November. Started with a couple times a week and has progressed to just about every night...and this is with us waking her up 2-3 times a night. Took her to the doctor, urine tested clear, and he believed she had probably caught some virus when we were in Florida earlier that month and said if that's the case, she should stop in a couple of weeks. She didn't. Took her back to the doctor last week, urine tested clear, and I mentioned taking her to a Urologist, but he wanted first to try putting her on DDAVP at night...she started taking Friday and she has wet the bed 3 of those 4 nights. He said to give it a couple of weeks and I plan to, but when we go back in for the re-check, I am going to insist upon a Urologist.
I am SOOO tired of the mess of this. Finally bought a plastic cover for her mattress, but still have to wash her bedding almost daily...and to get the smell completely out, I have to wash twice, so that's two loads a day when we have a well...and that's not counting all the other water being used by the other laundry that needs to get done and the dishwasher and the showers...
I want to put her back in Pull-Ups, but I'm not sure if that would be the right thing to do. She wasn't nighttime potty trained until she was 5-1/2 because she had never woken up with a dry Pull-Up and I always heard to not even try until they do. I truly believe she didn't even try to hold it before because she didn't have to due to the Pull-Up.......and I'm worried she's going to regress right back into that. And yes, I know...tell her she still has to try to hold it and wake up and go even if she is wearing it...but telling her this before bed and her doing it through the night are two completely different things.
So.....which would you do...back to Pull-Ups or continue with the almost nightly mess?

Alarm is a great idea. I am wondering if she is often constipated? Does she have a bowl movement every day? Constipation can cause bed wetting too. Just a thought.
