anyone else have a 7yo in diapers?

Our 7yo DD still wets the bed every night.  A couple months ago we went back to diapers, because goodnites were leaking too often - and what's the point of them if you still have to wash the sheets?  She didn't really like it at first, but doesn't mind now since she realized that waking up in a dry bed is much better than waking up in a leaking pull-up.

Is anyone else still putting a diaper on their older child?

Yes - our our doctor says it's that it's fairly normal at 7 (she just turned 7 in Oct), and isn't worried about it for a year or two more.

Thanks, but I don't think that's the case with her - she's fairly social and can relate to other kids, even if she's shy sometimes...

My oldest is 6 & wears Pull Ups at night. He is a very heavy sleeper and just doesn't wake up to go. Our pediatrician said it's actually not that uncommon and is normal until about age 8.

Don't worry about it for another year or two, and that she's probalby too young for an alarm, and definitely too young for medications.

Do they ever leak?  DD sleeps like a log, so I'm sure that's part of it.  She was in pull-ups until recently, but we had lots of problems with leaks, which forunately we haven't had with diapers.
