Again, I will tell you the same thing I told the other mom. YOu cant train a child to not wet the bed other than getting them used to getting up and going on their own. Thats a bladder thing. Most of the time, if the bladder isnt mature enough to hold it...they just sleep right through. When they begin to wake up dry, then you know their bladder is doing its job. As a mother of 2 bedwetters...one until she was 11, I know the frustration of wet sheets and the smell of pee. She began refusing to wear pull ups at about age 8, but the wetting didnt stop. She was frustrated embarassed and her self esteem plummeted. So I had her put on medication at about 8 or 9. That really helped. A lot of kids take until about age 5 to get the hang of holding it at night, but its not something they can control.
