My daughter wet the bed until she was 4-4.5 ... I asked the ped about it and he said that kids grow at different rates and sometimes their little bodies don't catch up with their bladders....or was it vice versa?....lol....either way, he said it is not out of the ordinary for a child not to be dry through the night until 6 or 7 or even later. Its not the child's fault. So many parents label kids "bed-wetters" or deprive them of water for hours to get them to stay dry. After the ped told me that, I went out , bought a pack of overnight pull ups and stopped worrying about it. She wore those for maybe 6 months, after a full week of dry pull ups in the morning we stopped, and again that was by the time she was 4.5. She's 6 now and has had maybe 3 accidents since. My son just turned 4 and is no where near being ready to go without a night time pull up, but he'll get there eventually. GL!
