My nearly 7 yr old constantly wets the bed. He's been praised when he wakes up dry, we've told him he can get a reward(staying up later cuz he's been begging to do just that)when he wakes up dry,etc. But nothing seems to click with him.
Has anyone had a bed wetter at this age and have any tips to help him remain dry during the night besides waking him up in the middle of the night(which isnt doable cuz he shares his room with his two younger brothers and he's a miserable waker upper...Ive tried. I dont wanna risk waking the younger ones up)??
We make sure he has nothing to drink an hour before bed, he goes potty right before he jumps into bed.
Ive heard him get up at like 530-6a to go but by then he's already wet and instead of changing stuff he just goes back to bed or wakes his brothers and they play.
Im at a loss. Any advice from those who have been through this would be awesome. Thx!

If it is not from some stress but because he is lazy to get up and go to the toilet than make him clean up after himself every time he wets the bed straight away, talk to him it is not nice and normal to do that. You maybe will wake up the smaller ones some times but he will learn that not going to the toilet is worse than being lazy. If it goes farer than go and talk to your pediatrician. I would talk to the doctor anyway.
