Can someone plaese give me some tips on how to get my son to stop wetting the bed? We have tried everything and nothing seems to be working.

my 4 year old was wetting his bed while sleeping. We stopped giving him anything to drink two hours before bed time. We had him go potty in the toilet, I purchased a vinyl pad that goes under the fitted sheet. My husband figured out what time he was peeing and would wake our son up to take him pee. We also learned that he was afraid of the dark so we purchased a night light. Our son has not had an accident in a while. We never scolded him for wetting his bed,

It depends on what you've already tried and if there is a family history. First, take him to be examined. Make sure everything is working right. After that, get yourself a monitor. http://www.bedwettingstore.com/category_alarms.htm?gclid=CM_W8uim1ZgCFVKU7QodKjH_Tg I have the gold one on here. You can put on a pair of undies, attach the monitor and either put a pullup on over it or use a wet pad.
Unfortunately, kids who have a family history of wetting don't get over it quickly or easily. My son is 11 and still has a problem. We were told that he would probably continue for as long as his father and uncle did. This is a biological problem for some kids and you are better off not stressing it because it will get worse if you do.
