My son (4) has been completly potty trained for over a year. Overnight we would have him wear pull ups (or something to that effect). He expressed an intrest in getting rid of the dipars, so we did. Now I'm having a huge problem. He wont wake up overnight at all, and now durring the day he has regressed to wetting himself durring the day as well, I haven't had that problem for a LONG time. I've heard mixed things about alarms, and other techniques like that. Should I just put him back in overnight dipars? Is this "normal"? I'm running out of bedsheets overnight! :) and I'm completely at a loss. How do I encourage him to grow up and take that next step? Do I just need to back off? HELP!!!!!Answer Question

I know that my son had this same problem. After a couple of months of trying everything from waking him up at night, to not letting him drink after a certain time and so on we took him to the doctor and he ended up needing to have surgery. I am not saying that your son needs this although it doesn't hurt to have him checked out. I know with my son right after he had the surgery he stopped wetting the bed at night. I also know that when kids grow sometimes their bladders don't grow as fast as they do so this could also be part of the problem.
