How do I stop nocturnal bed wetting?

my son who turned twelve in July has still some occasional bed wetting. The doc says he has a small bladder, he's a heavy sleeper, and it can be heriditary, which in our case my husband and his Mom had it when they were kids till about begining teen years.

  • There really is no way to stop it. It is a health problem until the kids body begins to respond.

  • Have you tried a bedwetting alarm? They can really help with kids who are heavy sleepers. I wet the bed until I was nearly 6. Then my parent broke down and bought an alarm. It worked in one night for me though I understand 2 weeks to a month is more normal. You can find them at most medical supply stores, www.onestepahead.com, bedwettingstore.com.

    Good luck!
