  • I would suggust nothing to drink after 7pm. make sure that she uses the bathroom before she goes to bed, and then take her to the bathroom again before you go to bed. In the morning, hopefully she will be dry. I had the same problem. Hope this works fo you. GOOD LUCK.

  • It could be a medical problem. Take her to the doctor.

  • Bedwetting is not a bladder problem it is a sleep problem. I was a wetter as was my youngest daughter. Here is a website the helped me tremendously with my daughter. She was dry in 3 months.  Hope this helps.

  • One of my kids was a bedwetter right up until she was 8 or 9, but then the accidents became less and less frequent until it wasn't an issue. Don't make her feel bad about it. It's just part of being a kid and for you being a parent.

  • I would definitely bring it up at her next doctor visit.

  • First, I would make sure she is not constipated.
    If it has nothing to do with constipation then I would limit anything to drink for last 2 hours before bedtime. Have her go to the bathroom before bed, wake her up to go when you go to bed. If you or hubby get up early before she gets up try getting her up them. Little by little she will start to wake up to go. Some kids are just heavier sleepers than others and don't realize they have to go.
