  • First, does he have any health issues? Like maybe a bladder problems? If you don't know for sure, I would take him to the doctor to see to be sure. If not, I would try having him stop drinking anything but water after 4pm, and no water after a couple hours before his bed time. Be sure he to watch his intake of liquids. Maybe he is drinking to much. I don't know if that will help you, but that's what my parents did for my brother when he was younger and it worked for him.

  • Take her to the doctor and find out if there is a physical issue going on. She could have a small or overactive bladder, she could have an infection, she just may not have a fully developed bladder yet. Have her wear a pullup overnight to help keep her bed dry.

  • my almost 7 year old son still does... his dad did it till he was around 11 i think.. for boys i have heard that it is very common. ds wears a pull up at night.. we have tried with holding water before bed, waking him up to go.. nothing works..
    i would talk to your doctor just to make sure nothing is medically wrong but more than likely it is just something he will grow out of
