My son is now 4yrs old, and he wets the bed. We have tried everything from, cutting drinking off 2 and a half hours before bed, going to potty before bed, and I am worried. His pediatrician says that I should not worry about it until he is at least 5 or 6yrs old. But, he will be 5 in August. He still wears the pull ups because, he was getting up 2 times during the night to change jammies, and it broke my heart to see him having to do that. Please someone help me in what I should do. He is a great kid, and I want to do what is right by him!!! ThanksAnswer Question

This is really quite common for boys of his age. It takes longer for the boys bladders to develop the ability to "hold" overnight, and some children at that age just don't get the message from the brain that they have to pee. It takes time for that to develop. Some kids are just heavy sleepers and don't wake up. Many boys have this problem up to 8 years old or longer.
Don't put pressure on him and don't talk about this in front of him. He needs your support and love. This is just as upsetting for him as it is for you. Honestly, if the doctor is telling you not to worry yet, listen to him.
