  • I was night trained early too. my brother was not...

    dh was a bed wetter til 11 or 12.

    my middle dd is 6 and still wets the bed - the other two (8 and 3) are night time trained. so I think somewhere there is indeed some genetics at work.

  • Yes, I think it is. I wet the bed until I was 13. My daughter is 8 and still wets the bed.

  • I think gentics plays a part. My son was wetting the bed till he was 9. He is 11 now and is fine. Myex used to wet the bed till his age too.
