My son has a problem with peeing in his bed. He is almost 7 years old. It doesn't matter how long before bed we stop giving him a drink he still wets the bed. He goes before bed and usually gets up once to go too. IDK what to do. Any suggestions?

I wet my bed for a very long time and my parents kept taking me to doctors and having tests ran on me. Turned out I have a very small weak bladder even to this day and I can't hold when I gotta go I gotta go.

Have you talked to his doctor.  My son wet the bed too, in fact he still does sometimes and he is 10, but our family doctor told me that most kids grow out of it by the time they are 8 and that is when my son's problem started happening less often.

Just use plastic sheets under his bedsheets....I was a bedwetter as a child. I simply could not wake up in the night to go potty. It is not something he can help...and it sucks. Some kids sleep too soundly and won't wake up - even with those bed "alarms". He will outgrow it I promise.

Im having this problem with my daughter. She's only 3 though so I know its still normal. But she potty trained real early and went almost a year with no bed wetting. Now she's back in pull ups at night. She pees her pants any time she falls asleep. Even if she just falls asleep on the couch for ten minutes she pees.

we have a mattress cover. its 100% guarantee by the company we bought the mattress from. that way if it gets pee on it with the cover on it they replace the mattress for 5 years. i thought that was a needed investment lol
