Hi guys, I need some help. My son will be 8yrs old in June and he still wets the bed almost every night. He isn't lazy, he is just such a good sleeper that he doesn't wake up when he has to go. I cut off his liquid intake over an hour before his bed time and monitor the amount he drinks earlier in the evening. I make him go to the bathroom several times before bed, but I wake him up for school every morning to find that he has, yet again, wet the bed. I try not to get visibly upset, but it's getting to the point where it is driving me mildly insane.
I am a single mom, working full time and I have a hard time finding time to do laundry every day because of his wet sheets/blankets. Also, I live in an apartment and have to pay to do laundry and this is getting expensive!
I am thinking about taking him to the doctor to see if he has a medical condition, but I honestly think he does it only because he sleeps too hard to wake up when he has to go.
Does anybody have any suggestions?? I have also considered using one of those alarm things, has anybody tried one and do they work??
