  • It can be common for children in growth spurts to wet the bed at night. I would not worry too much.

  • It is very common for kids to wet the bed until 6 years old. Remember, he can't control his body when he is sound asleep. If you snore, will daytime breathing exercises stop it? Of course not. What you do while awake has NOTHING to do with what happens when you are asleep.
    What to do?
    Put a waterproof pad on his bed, a bottome sheet, another pad, another sheet. Then when he wakes up wet in the night you only have to strip off the wet layer while he changes his clothes.

    As for daytime accidents, these are also common until 1st grade. When a kid is in a new situation, is really busy playing, or really involved in something, he'll keep fighting off the urge to go so he can keep doing what he is doing - until it is too late and he can't get to the potty in time.
    What to do?
    Keep an eye on him. If it's been 2 hours since he went or he is "dancing", tell him to go. Don't ask him if he has to, he'll say NO. Tell him!

  • Actually my daughter who was 4 at the time she is now 5. She used to wet the bed when she drank an excessive amount before going to sleep at night. You can monitor his drinking before bed and that might help, or if all else fails then you can just start useing those goodnight underpants for kids they have now they can wear them under there PJ's and they look like shorts not diapers so he wont feel like he's going back into diapers. You can try that for a little while untill you get it more under control. Hope this helps and Good Luck!
