Wait, lots of children aren't physically ready to hold it at night. Some kids are 12 before that happens. There is nothing you can do to change that.

It happens. I did until I was 13.

My dd is also 5 and still wets the bed. No advice here just a bump! I think it is something they have to outgrow.

It happens. There really is nothing you can technically do about it. Some kids just can't night train and their bodies aren't ready, it's pretty common and it can stop anytime between now and 12, 13 and still be normal.

If she gets 6, 7 or older then the dr. might step in to reconsider things but it's seriously common.

 Don't let him drink after dinner and wake him atleast twice throughout the night. Sorry, I don't have more to offer...I never had this problem with either of my kids.

I did until I was 9 or 10. My brother until he was 12. Maybe it's genetic or because of the instability in our lives.

I don't give my daughter anything to drink for an hour before bedtime. If she asks for a drink at night, I wake her up about 45 minutes later and have her go potty. She doesn't wet the bed anymore and rarely asks for a drink at night anymore, because she knows if she drinks I'll be waking her up.
