One of my twins still wets the bed, how can I help him with this problem?

We have (well I have) tried to not give my boys anything to drink before bedtime, and make sure they use the restroom before laying down for the night. My husband goes agans't anything I try to to to help our kiddos out. I raised my oldest on my own, then came the twins and I raised all 3 of them on my own since the twins were 2. I know what I'm doing, but he doesn't help me out.

  • wake him up...drag him to the bathroom if you have to about 3 hrs after he falls asleep and have him pee. Then drag him back to his room. It is tiring at first but easier than changing sheets.

  • How old is he? Put him in a pull up. there really is nothing you can do. Believe me, I've done it all. My son wet the bed until he was 14. I woke him, tried the alarm, tried the pills, restricted drinks. Some kids just sleep very deeply and their bladders are small. Good luck.

  • I guess it would depend on how old your son is... If he is still a tot, I would think its normal to have accidents at night. If he is older, it may be a medical condition. I continued to wet the bed as a child and my Dr. discovered that my bladder had not grown/developed with my body. He did a test that forced liquid into my bladder and then measured its size using a sonogram. He said that if the bladder didn't grow within a certain period of time, he would have to surgically stretch it. Luckily, it grew! Phew! My cousin had the same problem. Anyway, check w/ your Dr. Also, my Dr. gave me an alarm that I fastened to my underwear and it was triggered by moisture. So, if I began to wet at night, the alarm would go off. It didn't work for me, but it may be helpful for your little one.

  • My son is 5 and still wets the bed every few days....I've restricted drinks, make him pee before bed, long after he's fallen asleep and to no avail. I just hope he can get through it as well....good luck to you!

  • I appreciate all your help, my son is 4. He is the youngest of him and his twin by a minute. His twin don't have this problem, so I'm thinking maybe it's just him. Oh and I ment to put "took care of all 3 boys on my own since the twins were born til the twins were 2 years of age.
