  • Maybe he drinks more ? Did you start any med's on him ? Any stress ?

  • I stop giving him fluids at 6pm,bedtime is at 8.Web md stated stress could be a factor as well but everything has been pretty much routine at home new meds either.When i was young i had a problem w/bed wetting till i was about 11.The doc said my bladder wasnt fully developed.Everything did work itself out but it was humiliating i dont wish that on anyone.I hope he hasnt inherited this.

  • It is happened to my son few times, but I have a med's to blame, and visits to ER ( he hav asthma ).
    Personally, i have a feeling that is just a phase. But call his MD in the morning , just to have a peace of mine.
    Good luck to both of you )

  • Is there some stress in the family? Are you and dad fighting or something else going on that would upset him?
