Does your child still wet the bed?

My 5 year old still wets the bed. My hubby did for awhile and the doctor said it was common. I was just wondering how common.

  • My ten year old still does. They say she will outgrow it eventually.

  • My 3 boys are bedwetters. The youngest is 5 and sometimes he is wet, sometimes dry. My middle wet the bed till he was 9-10 yrs old. My oldest is 14 (almost 15) and still wets. He did start taking bed-wetting medicine so I hope that will help him to stop wetting at night. My family does have a history of bedwetting- so the doctor thinks (for my kids anyway) that it is heredity causing the wetting.

  • My two older girls do not wet the bed. But my youngest that is six does wet the bed and in night time pullups.She has lots of bladder and constipation problems and will wet the bed more if has a bladder infection or blocked up with her colon. Doctor did say she might out grow it and not to worry. But there are so new things out there that has timers on their bed to wake them up to go potty when asleep but do not know if will get or not.

  • I'm very lucky. DD hasn't had any bed wetting accidents since she became fully potty trained. My niece, however, still has bed wetting issues at almost 10. My sister has her wear the good nights underwear to bed every night.
