My boyfriend's five-year-old son Christian has had a problem with wetting the bed since I've known him, but lately it's gotten out of control. He used to wet the bed maybe three times a week - now he does it EVERY night without fail. He used to have an accident every now and then now he's having an accident EVERY single day.
At night, he wears pull-ups which usually help. He leaks through them every now and then, but they usually save the sheets. If he's wearing a pull-up, he makes no effort to try and use the bathroom whatsoever. He'll just go in the pull-up.
What's worse, he won't tell me when he's peed in his pants. He'll just sit in it until I'm like, "What is that RANK smell??" and discover that it's him. Until I make him change, he just sits in it like he hasn't even noticed.
My boyfriend says he's been to the pediatrician and they were told that there's nothing physically wrong with him. I know that if he's wearing a pull-up, he won't even try to use the bathroom because I've seen it. Is he just not trying?? And if so, how do I make him try?? I'm desperate for even an idea!! I'm completely out of them!

I agree with the other moms here that suggest there's more that could be going on w/him like a bladder infection or even maybe kidney issues. Tell your BF to take his son back to the doctor and have the doctor test him for bladder infections as well as kidney issues just to be on the safe side.
