DD is 8 and has woken up dry twice in the last week - that's a new record for us.  Anyone else have any advice/encouragement?

Get an alarm. They attach to their undies and go off when they start to pee. Got one for my 6 year old did. She only had to wear it a couple weeks.

Tried it - it woke up everyone except her, so we gave it up after a couple weeks.

We have the same issue with our DD. We had to get her to stop drinking after 6pm and make her go pee numerous times before bed.

We do that too.  It helps - sometimes.  Did it work for your DD?

Get her tested for  an intolerance to yeast. My sister did, apparently the overload of yeast irriates the urethra, causing the bladder to let go, and they wet, once she got yeast out of her diet she was fine :)

Most of the time it does. She is down to 1 or 2 accidents a week.

My son had that issue until he was almost 10.   My only advice:   hang in there.   Do not -- DO NOT EVER -- blame, punish, or shame your child for wetting the bed.   It is NOT HER FAULT.   Chances are good that she will outgrow it in the next year or two.

What we did to make it a little easier:   I double sheeted his bed, with a waterproof pad between, and we set out extra pajama bottoms & underwear every night.    So, if he wetted, he could remove his wet clothes, the top (fitted) sheet, and the waterproof pad, put them in a hamper, put on the dry clothes, and already have a dry sheet to sleep on.   (We also had extra blankets in a drawer in his dresser, in case those were affected.  

It can very frustrating for parents -- but, keep in mind, it's MUCH harder for your child.    You WILL get through this!!!!

Huh - that's a new one.  I'll have to look into that - thanks.
