  • Any department store should have them. Even target or places like that. The Company Store has really nice ones that don't leave the sheet feeling wet and sweaty.

  • walmart or the mattress store. You could use a trash bag until you find them. Well good luck. You could also try pull ups they work good also. Well good luck

  • Just about any store that sells sheets will sell waterproof mattress protectors.
    There are also products made just for bedwetting...

    Remember, it doesn't matter how long he's been day time trained. That has nothing to do with nighttime. It's like expecting someone who has been doing breathing exercises in the day to not snore at night. Once he is asleep, he is not in control of what his body does. Many, many kids wet until age 6. It's normal.

  • I had 2 bedwetters and they just wore pull-ups because I wasn't about to wash sheets every single day. My son stopped wetting the bed at 6 1/2 (that was last summer). He'll be 8 in October and still has occasional accidents, usually because he goes to bed super tired.
    My middle daughter is 6 1/2 now and still wets the bed with no signs of stopping any time soon. She just sleeps too soundly. As long as she wears her pull-up we are good.
    My other 2 kids (now almost 9 and 3) never wet the bed.

  • Keep him in pull-ups at night until he starts staying dry all night. A lot of kids are not ready to make it through the night yet at 3.
