My daughter wets the bed EVERY night. And not just once. Since she was 2 and a half. We had about 6 months of dry nights between 2 and 2 and a half. I knew it ran in the family and prepared for the long haul. I did some reading a year ago to prepare myself for trying to end it. Our Dr assured us that it wasn't considered a problem until age 6, and most of the books I read agreed. Well, she's about to turn 7. We will have health Ins. in about 3 months, but I worry that we should take her in sooner, or should have already. Thanks in advance!
have you tried behavior modification - I work with kids age 7-12 and many of them come into our program with nighttime enuresis - we limit liquids after about 7pm to decrease the need to urinate at night and we use a sticker charts where they earn a reward for increasing the # of dry nights. also we try to wake them up at least 2x a night to encourage them to use the bathroom with the hope that they will eventually start waking on their own. also if she continues to have this problem they sell underpants with an alarm that wakes them when they wet. and if all else fails they have a medication for older children (I think they have to be at least 10 before it's considered) that stops the wetting.
