Don't go crazy with this...my son was a bedwetter and we finally got relief when the dr. prescribed a nasal spray that completely stopped the bedwetting. As it was explained to me, some children are lacking a hormone that enables them to hold their urine through the night. The nasal spray replaces this hormone and it was a miracle for me. If I remember correctly, my son had to be 6 before he could use this medication. (He's 20 now, so my memory is a bit shaky). When my third child was born, my 7 yr. old daughter started regressing and wetting the bed. Again, I turned to the medicine and it worked wonders. Sorry I do not remember the name of it but ask your pediatrician. It may be expensive but so are pull-ups and the frustration can be so avoided. I was also told that children who lack this hormone generally have it kick in at the age of 9. Don't wait that long!!!! PS...I did not notice any side effects...
