No beverages after 730 (bedtime 830-9), read stuff, nothing working!? HELP, he is getting soo self conscious now - wont go to sleep overs, only have them here (I need a nite off too!)
i had this with my oldest. We tried everything and nothing worked. We woke him up in the middle of the night and used the alarm, we reduced drinks, eliminated caffeine. None of the usual suggestions worked. He would even pee through the Goodnights! The doctor cleared him of any medical issues and we were just cleaning up the messes. Finally the doctor suggested that since we had tried everything else, why don't we try the medication. We tried it and it was wonderful. He could go to soccer camp and sleepovers, it really helped with his self confidence. I am one that only tries meds as a last resort, but he was 10 and miserable. It was so great that I could have kicked myself for not trying it sooner.

DD still wets the bed at 14 so I've looked into this a lot. Deep sleepers seem to have this problem - which is why your DS doesn't wake to the bed wetting alarm. Do get him checked for medical issues. I found the book, 'Getting to Dry' by Maizels to be a terrific resource on this topic.
