What else can I do?

Ds is 5. He pees his pants almost everyday. It used to be an accident maybe twice a week during the day but now it is EVERY day. He has done it in school a few times, but now it's mostly at home. I don't know what to do anymore. His room smells like piss because he has pissed his bed so many times. He wears a pullup at night. It's not a bladder infection, I think it's because he's too lazy to use the bathroom. I took TV away and now I think I'm going to start taking away toys. I also took away his time to play in the bath. I don't know if any of it is going to work.

I have taken him to the doctor.

I think it's laziness. I am nice to him about it, don't assume I'm a bad parent just because this is frustrating.

Have you had him checked for diabetes?

It's unlikely but no, I haven't. Just blood testing for allergies.

Wish I had an answer my ds2 is 5 and does this too. Plus he poops his pants too. We think it's just a cry for attention since it started after DS3 was born in October. Has anything changed in his life recently? Kids can have reactions to even small changes.

Have his sugar checked just in case.

In the meantime, cover everything!!! Mattress covers on your beds on the couches, then slipcovers...

Good luck, I know it's frustrating.

There are specialists in urinary training and you should find one for him. There are problems that a regular pediatrician are just not equipped to deal with.

I was thinking it might be because of dd, she's 9 months...there's nothing I can do about that though. I don't know if I'm supposed to feel guilty for having another baby or what I'm supposed to do. When he was 4 he rarely peed his pants...I have threatened to put him back in diapers..
